I have received ketamine for a year now. I receive it by infusion in the dr's clinic. Started out at 3 times a week and now up to 6 weeks. Have had ECT that did not work. I have TRD and PTSD. This is the best thing I have ever tried.
I live in San Antonio and was actually treated in the ambulance with ketamine for a major panic attack. It was like taking acid for about 20 minutes but afterwards my attitude, depression was decreased immediately. Effects only seemed to last about a week. Id love to know what Des here are using this medication. Could u email me any info u have? (Email address can only be seen by the question and answer creators) thank u. And good luck
