> I think the key is to find an expeiernced psychopharmocologist or get in to seea pdoc at a university because in my experience they are more likely to try off-label therapies like opiate therapy. Gathering research on the subject and taking it to them also helps.
> The biggest hurdle is telling them that an opiate makes you feel "normal" without them reacting negatively. In my situation, I had tried so many meds and so many combinations that my doc one day just said in frustration - does ANYTHING make you feel better - and that's when I told her that opiates made me feel much better - even close to "normal." Of course she didn't prescribe an opiate on the spot - she did some research and talked a lot with her colleagues about it before even giving it a trial run.
> It's tricky to find a pdoc out there that will do this when everything else has failed. But there ARE docs out there.
Yesterday i took 150mgs Codeine, after a long break from it-VIcodin=VI,=6 x Codeine? so 5mgs Hydro=30mgs Codeine, so did i threorecically take 25mgs Vicodin?
I can't say it did much for my mood, other than releave the soreness that 2 wasted weeks on sh*t Prozac caused me-althought i'v read that SSRIs can prevent the formation of Morphine fron Codeine so...
I wonder if Vicodin (not having to be changed into Morphine by the liver)would be any different, or maybe Codeine and VI-codeine responders are the same?
