I have been prescribed just about every antidepressant created, & nothing seems to help. I am not ignorant to the fact that hydrocodone is is for pain & not depression, but it has been THE ONLY medicine that has ever helped my depression (temporarily, of course).

I havent had any other meds, I've had to push to get these ones, and I havent been prescribed them yet, thanks to the laws in the UK anti depressants for under 18's in the UK is desperatley limited! Prozac is the most popular, but through my research I have seen that it's the worst thing that can be given to a teenager with depression, and the nhs have limited funding, so i doubt TMS, ECT or VNS are available on it.

I m so happy that I ve come across this information, I really thought I was the only one who felt this way in using opiates for severe refractory depression. My daughter has suffered such severe depression since she was 10years old, she's now 22 years old. She's been hospitalized on numerous occasions in the past, and has many suicidel thoughts. She was precribed oppiates for pain one time and low and behold she came around like a beautiful blooming flower, it was simply amazing... I saw something that I've never seen since she was a young child. She said she finally felt normal and happy and she couldn't remember the last time she felt this way. She also suffers from extreme social anxiety and all this went away while she was taking this drug too. Now it's to convince the doctors and this is where it gets hard, we are now in the middle of trying to convince the doctor what she really needs.. this works and we must have it or who knows what will happen to my young beautiful daughter.

I discovered this effect by accident. I was in a car accident and had a neck injury. I'm not a candidate for surgery, so I was referred to a pain clinic. I have always suffered from depression, and not only did my medication (percocet) help with my neck pain, it also lifted the depression I had been battling for a long time. Yes, people can become dependent or addicted to this medication, but it is sad that so many people suffer needlessly because of the stigma surrounding it. As always, if something works, they will find a way not to give it to people.
Most people don't understand or believe you when you l them that if you have severe/refractory depression how much relief you get from certain opiate meds(oxycodone)seems to be the one that works the best for me.Drs. really need to start looking at this as a real treatment for refractory depression.
