Fabulous article kingcolon, just fabulous. Thank you. (Read all 13 pages!) So many things I could say, but for now suffice to say... I am of the mind that it's pure insanity to consider the perils of carefully controlled opiate usage for treatment resistent depression any worse than those suffered from "approved," mainstream meds. The only other thing I will add at this time is... GRRRRR! ;-)


> Here's an article from Elle magazine that another member referred to in a previous post. It's amazing that a Harvard psychiatrist who did a pioneering study on buprenorphine for depression would not prescribe it for this case of refractory depression because she wasn't an addict and doing so would be off-label dispensing of an opioid, which could arouse the DEA.
