I'm not sure how you'd go about asking a doctor to prescribe you opiates for depression. I suppose you could take along one of those bupe studies if you think that would help. I think you'd need to have a pretty good relationship with your doctor for them to seriously consider something like this, obviously. I have a feeling that by far the majority would still refuse though.

In your country there is a high-strength preparation of dihydrocodeine and paracetamol called Panadeine, more info here: http://forum.opiophile.org/showthread.php?p=152432#post152432. I use a similar one called Paramol. I combine it with an ibuprofen-based codeine preparation called Nurofen Plus, I don't know if you can get it where you live. You need to use high-strength preparations because those 8mg tablets are useless for most people, though personally I can detect the effect of 16mg codeine.

You could always try for some real grown-up strength ones by developing the old bad back, or arthritis pain. Tramadol is an interesting opiate having SNRI-like action, and I prefer it to codeine.
