Yeah, I have worked around addictions as a social worker for many years. I have seen people on opioids, when psych meds were added, jump right up on functionality. Opioids are far, far from being "evil", and the "just say no" faction spreads all sorts of non-scientific garbage. All meds should be in our set of weaponry against mental illness. Tylenol 3's will do a good job of, temporarily, jolting me out of bad depression and anxiety. My pdoc has prescribed them PRN, and they have worked well for decades. I also take Vyvanse, on top of my other BP2 meds, which helps with the retarded slowing of the depressive aspect of my illness. These meds SHOULD be available for all, and hopefully, not in my lifetime, but down the road, we will realize how demonizing all these tools/meds took away from leading a symptom-free life of mental illness. Oh, and I also take a liberal dose of clonazepam.


Someone said, they never fear a thing
Well, I do
And I'm afraid enough for both of us,
For me and you
Time, if nothing else, will do it's worst
So do me a favour, and tell me the good news first
