Well, having been an actual drug addict (addicted to opiates and alcohol), to me there is a huge difference between trying to find a psych med (which are not addictive in the sense of causing a high which the addict chases despite negative life consequences) that relieves depression or other psychiatric symptioms and drug addiction. I take parnate. Doesn't make me high. I don't crave it. I don't take higher and higher dosages to maintain an even keel. It has some side effects and apparently, if I try to go off it, I will have some withdrawal effects. This doesn't make me addicted to parnate, just dependent on it.
