they use buprenorphine sometimes for offlabel for depression, its a partial agonst of opiod receptors. Opiate receptrs when low, cause pain and depression. Then when you take a opiate, it seems to restore the imbalalance, or unstimulated receptors. I read somewhere methadone was used for depression, in cases where nothing was working. And methadone is a full agonist of opiate sites, and is more addicting. Alot of heroin and heavy opiate users, have to take methadone. And that also depends on the doctor's regulations and their treatment. Some will explore more options than just the classified treatment. Opiates are antidepressants, no kidding. You feel alot better when you take them.
