I keep telling my doc she should write a paper on my experience since it's been so positive. The more that doctor's publish about opiates helping depression can only help open many closed minded docs.

Actually, I have switched my stim to Adderall - which I find to help much better in the general mood dept. than Dexedrine. I take 20mg XR 3x daily and it (Adderall) works GREAT with the opiate. I only wish there were a longer acting form of hydrocodone.

Thanks for the well wishes! I appreciate it!

Jerry
