 Opiates as anti-d's - INFO NEEDED!

I am looking for ref's on studys done using opiates as anti-depressants .. or
generall info for that matter .. I think my depression could be best 'cured'
with some fentanyl or at least Dilaudid at the very least oxycodone! I simply
need to convince my doctor .. he claims this is gray-area medicine and there
is not enough HARD DATA... I beg to differ .. anyone?

        How do you propose that opiates would act on DA,
5HT, and NE as do most other anti-depressants?

Not to endorse or condone phreexism, but there's no reason to suppose that a drug
which does not work on the same neurotransmitter systems as, say, amitriptyline,
will not be effective for depression:

1) depression is (currently) defined by its presentation, not by its cause (which
isn't at all well-understood anyway).
2) I assume you already know that the various NT systems can interact in
unexpected and complex ways.
