Ketamine IV used for anxiety & depression


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the above? 

If so, could you please tell me who administered it and what were your results?  Please feel free to PM me.

This is a serious question and I would appreciate no negative comments unless they are in direct response to the post.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Ketamine IV can be used for chronic pain. Why not try the generic Lyrica first? The generic is pregabalina and you can buy it at Farmacia Similares, 150 mg, 28 tablets for $159 and 25% off on Mondays. You don't need a prescription. It is great for pain, helping with sleep and has a tranquilizing effect. You are not supposed to drink with Lyrica so I assume it has a depressive quality.

Try it if you haven't,  before using something as strong as Ketamine.

I have never used it but I would suggest before taking any advise on a forum in regards to this drug or any anxiety/depression drug you have advise from dr.  Possibly you already have that and are just asking others who have used it their opinions.  If so that is good otherwise, please seek medical advise before taking any drugs...

Yes, I have a doc on board but was just trying to find any info from anyone with direct experience.

No personal experience, but worked in an office where we gave ketamine treatments in the US and they were very successful from what the patients told us.  DId it mostly for PTSD and other depressive disorders.  They use them at many VA hospitals in the states also.  That is about the extent of my knowledge and I do not know anyone in the area that does such treatments.

A persistent myth from something that happened many years ago. Simply not true today, there is rigorous enforcement and inspection of the manufacturers and importers, indiscretions result in jail time.

Yes but the Doctor beside Farmacia Similares is a real doctor, although maybe a recent grad, he/she will write you a prescription for I believe 40 pesos. Mental disorder specialists seem to be hard to find here.

Farmacia Similares is a very large company with pharmacies in almost every city in Mexico. You can Google the products and they are all well know and sold in several countries. Your comment is insulting to Mexico and you should be careful about libel against companies.

You only need a prescription for antibiotics. Farmacia Similares, like most pharmacies, doesn't sell controlled substances. You have to see an anesthesiologist in Guad and go to one of three pharmacies to get strong drugs.

Joco, one also needs a prescription for any controlled substance--whether it's something very strong for pain relief or whether it's a psychotropic drug taken for a mental health issue.  Farmacia Similares does indeed sell controlled substances, including psychotropics.

"Psychotropic definition, affecting mental activity, behavior, or perception, as a mood-altering drug."

Lyrica, as well as other mood altering drugs, are psychotropic and you do not need a prescription at Farmacia Similares to buy them. 

Generic Prozac you can buy it without a prescription:

There are many others but I don't want to spend the time looking them up.

I wrote earlier that controlled substances need an anesthesiologist to write a prescription and the prescription is filled at one of 3 pharmacies in Guadalajara.

Many people have moved back North because strong painkillers are so difficult to obtain.

Joco, thanks for taking the time to look this up.  As in many things, this is yet another that differs from place to place.  At the Farmacia Similares in Mexico City where I shop, a prescription is required.  YMMV.

Ketamine would require a doctor to administer it and a prescription.

So much to look at regarding anxiety and depression.  I hope you would consider fixing the problem rather than medicating it.  It's rough trying to medicate. 

Parathyroid gland controls whether we feel depression

Which means the pituatary gland could be down

Check the colon

Anxiety is controled by the adrenal glands.

i've had my own fair share of trauma and trying to deal with anxiety and depression.  Working to fix the glands that are down has been the most successful thing I could have done for myself.  I was just saying to my husband today that this is the first summer in years that I can recall me not feeling depressed after several cloudy days during our rainy season.  What's made the difference?  I worked on all my "stuff" years ago but I needed my physical body to get onboard.   Over the past year I've used bovine glandulars.  Most recently used parathyroid glandular.  i'm off of it, you can only take them from 1-3 months at time and maybe need to repeat 6 months later.  I have no depression, in fact, I'm thoroughly enjoying our rainy season ❤️⛈☔️  I also have been cleaning from the inside out with a new lifestyle of aka detoxificacion.  Made night and day difference.  If you're interested in more information about it, send me a pm and I'll do the best I can to help.  Pharmaceuticals are a mess and won't cure anything.  I had some mental health issues in my 20's and the md's and physiatrist had me trying all kinds of meds back then, literally felt like my brain was frying, awful.  Why didn't those Md's tell me I it was the birth control pills that were causing my problems and get me off of their meds?  I was fortunate to learn from a friend, get away from meds.   I have to deal with PTSD and doing well pharmacutical free! 

Best well wishes!

please try to find and fix the underlying cause of your anxiety and depression instead of trying to cover up the symptoms with pharmacutical drugs. sometimes their cure is worse than the disease. one of the most common and least talked about causes of your symptoms is magnesium deficiency. it is used in so many processes in your body and is water soluable so you lose it in your urine. It is called "Nature's Chill Pill" for a reason. Lithium is prescribed for these symptoms because it fits the same molecular slot as magnesium but is $$$ while magnesium is cheap. the most user friendly way to use it is as magnesium oil--no oil, just the tecture--which can be made 1:1 water with magnesium chlorite crystals. they can be bought at El Granero in Ajijic across from the Hospital. it tingles a little,but is easily absorbed by the skin, just spray/daub it on a big muscle or over an achy area. Epsom salts are magnesium Sulfate and is also a good way to absorb it. You can buy it in pills,but not well absorbed and can cause diarhea....good luck.

Why would anyone recommend that someone else just go to the drug store and take some drug without them consulting their doctor? Incredibly irresponsible and dangerous. Lyrica is not some benign thing to self-administer as if it is aspirin. Has extremely dangerous side effects (40pound weight gains, hair loss, just to name a couple), ADDICTIVE, almost impossible to stop taking without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Harder to kick than heroin.
