So, the doctors I was seeing switched me to 15mg. Oxycodone and
then the Fentyle patched (150mcg.) None of that worked for a long enough time, and, like you, my depression was relieved when I took pain meds. Alway Happy and talkative. Smiles and jokes. But, when the pills wore off, man, what a come-down. I wanted to jump out a window. Valium made me even more depressed and antidepressants just put me to sleep and nothing worked. Nothing, until a big dose of pain meds. Then, I found Oxycontin.
