> As someone who has taken opiates for over a year due to back pain, I can tell you they are not good for depression! As a matter of fact, I think they make it worse. Constant ups and downs. They make you bipolar!Yes there are times you feel great on them, like any street drug, but they can be very unpredictable in your reation. Sometimes you feel good, sometimes depressed, sometimes paranoid, etc. I only hope I can get off them someday and let Lexapro do it's job as the opiates clearly block the good effects of antidepressents. That's my 2 cents!

I'm on an opiate for my depression - hydrocodone. I take 5mg 4x daily. Sure it's not as smooth as one would like - but it sure helps my depression. Been on it for a year now and no tolerance.
