Hi, Stargazer.

Thank you so much for your reply.

> Hi SLS
> I was getting IV Ketamine and had perhaps 10-12 treatments at $500 per infusion, which I dont think is too outrageous, as it is an hour in length administered by an RN and the procedure has its risks. The doctor that provided Ketamine is a psychiatrist with the right credentials and a member of a National Ketamine Assn that has frequent seminars, where she often speaks. The treatment is complex in that I understand there are more nuances than many patients recognize, I.e. the dosage given is critical and the level of dissociation is also critical, for a successful outcome. She also has a pharmacological branch of practice and TMS branch. She is located in CT and I can provide her name if you like just to read her website and her blog which she updates frequently. I do believe she is in the top 1 percent of Ketamine specialists nationally.

Very. Thank you.

I tried intranasal ketamine 5 years ago. It didn't help, but I now question the quality of the solution prepared by the compounding pharmacy. Even large doses didn't produce dissociation.

Your description of the importance of dosage is in line with what John Krystal (Yale) said years ago. Too little doesn't work and too much doesn't work.
