<<Ketamine>>

I have had lots of ketamine before I was diagnosed sza, but it helped immensely. I understand it’s contraindicated for sz patients.

Anyone have ketamine after a sz/sza diagnosis?

I was given it in the emergency room just prior to one of my hospitalizations in response to a suicide attempt. The Drs. thinking was that nothing else was working on my depression so the ketamine treatment might help. I hallucinated terribly. The Drs. face melted off. The ceiling ripped off the building and I could see the sky and the sun shining through, even though it was at night. But other than that it felt pretty good. It didn’t really help my depression.

Ketamine is interesting. I think it actually really helped my alcoholism a lot and it made my days in winter feel a lot cozier. Really made me feel so much better and happier than alcohol did so I mostly stopped. I still drink at events and on the weekedns but have a healthier relationship and rarely ever drink alone

It was given to me to help with pain. I had a seizure on it, and am now considered allergic. But it was helpful for pain.
