Hi Shelli,
I'm glad Elizabeth was able to provide you with a lead on the East coast; my pdoc came out of a program at UCLA. Perhaps I'm being naiive, but I would hope if you had your records showing how well you respond to opiates and how treatment-resistant you were to standard AD treatment, some pdoc would be open to your regime. To save time I would often call the Psychiatry Dept at a U (I've spoken to someone at Hopkins, so they must have a mood disorders program) and ask to speak to the Director or author of the paper that Elizabeth mentioned. I've really been successful for some reason, maybe I sound pathetic. I also have gotten opiates on-line (PillBox) when desperate- but it's expensive and I, like the rest on this thread, would prefer to be under a dr's care. I've been very successful in my tapering, anxiety that is treated with benzos and depression- I've gotten Actiq, a short acting fentanyl lonzenge (thanks Elizabeth) for emergency use. I'm a believer in therapy, sometimes 3x/week. When I have my baby (thank you for asking), I'll ask Dr. Bob if I can post a picture :-). I wish you all the best, and if you want me to e-mail alternatives to getting opiates, I'll be happy to. Take care of yourself, judy
