Bingo. And who says you can't become an SSRI addict? There are certain consumer driven rating systems that rank SSRI's more difficult to quit than opiates.

For the 2 cents it is worth restating, I have gone on and off opiates before, one time upto 120mg codine a day (Wisdom teeth), and found SSRI withdrawl to be more profound.

I honestly think this is why some doctors are revisiting the idea. They may be thinking that all thing considered, its worth a shot.

There is a lot more history devoted to the use of opiates for depression than there is SSRI's.

It took us 100's of years to conlcude the opiates were habbit forming, but only 20 years to conlcude the same about SSRI's.
