The link below is to a compounding pharmacy in Atlanta, GA. I have no affiliation, association or experience with them. I am posting this for the excellent and accurate information it contains.

I have used ketamine intranasal spray at 50, 100, and 150 mg/ml solutions. Around 200 mg/ml, it may not remain dissolved. I have found that nasal administration of ketamine can play an important role in continued recovery from severe treatment-resistant depression, without the great expense and inconvenience of IV infusions.

Hi I was wondering if you were able to dissaccosiate with the nasal spray like you do with the infusions? I've received 5 ketamine infusions and was feeling like a new person. I was given the capsules but they do nothing for me. Friday I see my pain doctor who has been researching the nasal spray for me and will give me his answer on prescribing it for me then. I find that in order to control my pain and suicidal depression I have to be able to dissaccosiate every 5 or 6 days or I sink back into hell. The capsules just won't allow me to get to this point and if I don't have another infusions very soon or get the nasal spray in hopes of it working like the infusions I feel I might not make it. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this. Mary

I can't say whether or not you will find the nasal spray useful. As for dissociation, there seems to be a split among researchers as to whether it is necessary for treatment or an undesirable trait of "recreational" use.
With the nasal spray, you can control the dose. The nasal spray is absorbed far better than the oral route, and more rapidly than the intravenous.

Thank you very much Stella for the information. Not knowing the science behind why ketamine works I can't comment about disassociation professionally but only as a ketamine infusion patient. It seemed to me while I was in disassociation I was able to work out past traumas that have plagued me severally since the age of 9. I commented to the doctor that one infusion was like having 25 years of intensive psychotherapy. The effects of the infusions wear off, for me in about 6 days, but the benefit from working things out during disassociation have lasted to the point of me being able to forgive which I never imagined would be possible or even necessary for me to move on with my life. This is the reason I'm trying to find a way to disassociate safely at home. The cost of the infusions wiped all savings out and can not afford a booster infusion at this time. Thank you again for replying to me and best of luck to you Stella, Mary
