Hi All

My brother has been taking Meth for about 7 years now for his depression. It gives him energy and he's able to get up and unction 'fairly' normally day to day. He hasn't changed his dose in the whole time of taking it, and I believe he only takes a tiny dose compared to Heroin users.

Unfortunatley he has to get it illegally as docs in the UK will not and cannot prescribe for Bipolar or depression of any kind, it's for Heroin addicts only and you have to visit a Drugs and Alcohol clinic for it.

I too have tried Meth, didn't do alot for me, I have a very high tolerance to all meds, have always seemed to have to take to highest doses to get any benefits. Subutex on the other hand almost brought me into remission, just on 4mg at night. I was a different person. It pooped out after a month or s though, and the consipation was terrible! I'd like to try Suboxone (with Naltrexone) next, see if the tolerance doesn't come into the equation...

Opiates should be an option for all Treament Resistant Depression, it's just the few that abuse it that ruin it for the rest of us. My 2 cents anyway...
