Drugs, Quality of Life, and Dilemmas

I'm still kinda grumpy about not being able to take the Ketamine. Here's why. I'm not disagreeing with my doctors - their points on why they aren't keen on my taking it are very good. Ketamine apparently can push up blood pressure and is associated with tacychardia (rapid heart rate). And long term heavy use... Continue Reading →

Ketamine currently Good, but Useless.

So. The Ketamine works very well as an antidepressant for me so far. But my doctors and psychiatrists are unwilling prescribe it to me because it has not been approved for depression, and in fact its ability as an antidepressant is so far from its approved use as an anesthetic that they are not even keen to take a...

Quite frankly, I'm quietly celebrating. If... Continue Reading →

It is hard to describe - my best description is that it is like standing about 6 inches outside your... Continue Reading →

Ketamine is Complicated

Here's an update about Ketamine. The good news is that the Ketamine works brilliantly to pull me out of depression - it happens within about an hour if I take the Ketamine in injectable form. The bad news is that my doctor (general practitioner / GP, not psychiatrist) believes that the Ketamine dose I took... Continue Reading →

Depression and taking Ketamine

I tried Ketamine yesterday. I had been in a depression episode that lasted through all of September, which is a very long episode for me.
