Doc gave me a script of Vicodin for depression....

Posted by jerrympls on December 22, 2003, at 21:36:01

Since I am going off the Nardil - Ihave had some preety intense downs. I saw my pdoc and just took a breath and told her "You know, Vicodin has always been the best anti-depressant for me and I know they use it for severe treatment-resistant depression because Dr. (name withheld) told me so (he's one of the head reasearch pdocs there. Well, she nodded and aggreed with me. See, there was nothing to help me through the holidays and the wash-out of the nardil because Nardil is contraindicated with so many things - like stimulants. Then I said - "I'm not a drug addict or anything..." and she stopped me and said "I never thought you were a drug addict nor DO I think you are." She went on to say I was right - they do use opiates and there was a good chance that the attending psychiatrists would ok this.

I saw her two days later and she gave me a thumbs up. We're going to try it for 3 weeks. She even said: "If This actually DOES work well for you, we'll revist using it longer - because you may be one of those patients who has a problem with another system besides the Serotonin/Dopamine/NE system.

I couldn't believe it. We decided on 1 tab 4x daily for 3 weeks.

Finally....finally....they listened....and we'll see what happens.....

happy Holidays!
