Toshi Says:


I will go to the states to take ketamine treatment for depression. Ketamine is probably a great pill for depression, as recent research indicated. By the way, i am searching for friends who may have the same problem and same opinion--want ketamine--in states. I already tried to commit suicide 4 times. I entered in Japanese military forces for about 6 months, I've done Shikoku Henro meditation everyday 2-8 hours. i don't exercise everyday, due to these struggles. My mind is so much better. However, I feel my limit recently. final solution is ketamine, i recognized.

Why I still have heavy problem, maybe I try to juggle too much heavy stress simultaneously. these stressors make me really sick. If you are interested in my article, be my friend please?

You can post back on here. {edited for privacy}. Anyway I have to go to the states as soon as possible.

Toshi, please see the Ketamine Advocacy Network. You will find other ketamine patients like yourself, and a list of US doctors who offer ketamine. Good luck.

Hello, Toshi! How are you?

While it has been shown to help with severe depression, Ketamine is a very potent medication that is usually only prescribed as a last resort, when someone has exhausted their other options. It carries the risk of causing some possibly dangerous side effects, such as cardiac arrhythmia, bradycardia, increased intracranial pressure and anorexia.

What else have you tried to treat your depression? Some people do better with a combination of several different medications. Have you ever consulted a psychiatrist?

Toshi Says:

thank you rikee. i will ask this organaization.

thank you verwon. I tried exercise/work out, social skill train/sigmunt floit method/zazen meditation/Ssri zorft luvox/ any other pill for instance, hypnodoom, debass. in esepially exercise, zazen makes my brain function get better. when I was child, I couldn't speak, I couldn't eat my mothers meal. i evolved so much. now I can eat, speak.

but most severe problem for me is not to able to feel affection to human, not to able to feel happy. finnaly i decided to take ketamine. perhaps my brain function is so crazy. im interested in anti nmda reciepter medicine, ketamine namenda. i know side effect. but I can forgive side effect. im not afraid anymore.

Ketamine is hardly crazy expensive there are a number of doctors charging 250-350 per round of treatment and only 8-12 treatments might be necessary for remission. The real problem is that Ketamine is not a cure, it is a treatment so after a few weeks you will need another treatment and a few weeks after that another.

Most antidepressants run in the 5-600 dollar a month range IF you were paying for them out of pocket. Ketamine is less expensive than that.

U4EA Says:

My doctors have tried this "combining several medications" route. Almost killed me twice. Most serotonin re-uptake inhibitors come with a HUGE list of drug interactions.
The wrong combination or wrong dosages can cause Serotonin Toxicity or Serotonin poisoning which kills thousands in the USA each year. (many more due to misdiagnosis or attributed to heart failure, Flu, etc.) I had a fever over 104.7 at one point along with violent muscle tremors and agitation. Didn't sleep for over 72 hours.
Stacking medications should be a last resort, period.

Hi.
I've been on every antidepressant on the market and gone through hell and back and back again.
I'm suicidal every day but nothing helps.
Saw something about Ketamine for treating depression but I've asked all my Drs in my area (South Carolina) and they won't even discuss it. Then they treat me like an addict seeking crack. These are Drs I've known for years.
Does anyone in the upstate South Carolina, Atlanta, Charlotte areas know of any psychiatrists or pain management Drs who are willing to give Ketamine treatments?
Geeez. I'm not looking to go to a rave with half a pound of "special-k" and OD in the parking lot. I'm suffering from chronic pain, depression, and PTSD.
Please help if you can.

Well, I guess the rich can treat their depression, pain, and PTSD.
The rest of us will just have to suffer.

Ketamine treatment is WAY out of my ability to afford. I just work for a living. I don't manage mutual funds or launder money for the cartels.

Back to square one.

Toshi Says:

I tried ketamine. But not good for me. effect never proceeded 1 week. To me, benzoazepine medicine are just as good.

I wanna try namenda. By the way I will participate in an anti depression experiment in USA. Anyway better off than now, if it were dangerous medication.

And I have heard about drugs like "Molly" fixing depression.

Well, I can't afford the treatments in Charlston as I just lost my job for being on medical leave for 5 months in the last year, so, I'm going through bankruptcy. Disability pay was 36% of my usual take home, and was getting bajor back surgery, then recovery and all the medical costs involved, I ended up buried in debt. I'm broke, in severe physical and psychological pain, and the system spits on me (translate spit into another human secretion) and there I am. I see another doctor for a different opinion and got derided, never got a word in. His bill came today. $350 for an office visit and $1683 for a drug panel. Doctors are corrupt. I'm through with them.

Still have to move out of state to get away from the religious zealots and puritanical governmental policies. They would love to throw me in prison for treating my disease. These godly people sure love to hate and judge and stockpile guns. I had a choice at 18, be American, Canadian, or joint citizenship. I made a huge mistake choosing American. I'm going to apply to return to Canada where human life is respected, regardless of bank account and social status.

Hello Toshi! My name is Charlie and I know this may be too late or maybe not about coming to the United States for Ketamine treatment for depression. it's June 30 2015 now and I'm starting this Friday July 3rd. I was told to just drive with someone who can drive me home because it will be my first ketamine infusion. my second will be Sunday the 5th of July and then the feedback I give will let the doctor know if it's the right treatment to be on and stay on. I hope you have been able to try the ketamine therapy? If so please let me know how it worked for you! If your ever in New York get in touch with me! Well Goodluck to you & hope it does work out great for you! Regards, Charlie

Hi Toshi, my name is Mary. I have had two ketamine infusions in NYC and felt so much better until I had a family upset. Everything is back on track for me now and I go for another infusion this Saturday July 4th and then the following Monday and Tuesday. I will be given capsules after the infusions since the doctor will be needing to take a week off kinda ruining the idea of having them consecutively, but was told the capsules will help just as well. I relate to your feelings very much. What I think your referring to is called Apathy which I am starting to experience a bit myself. I make jewelry and carve cameos and just don't feel interested in doing anything anymore because of pain and depression. I feel suicidal almost everyday and fight like hell not to hurt myself. The ketamine infusion took these feelings away for 6 days for me and it was the most wonderful 6 days I have had since I was 8 years old and went to DisneyLand. If you use a reputable doctor, I suggest Dr. Brooks in NYC, they will keep you safe and make you feel better. I would love to stay in touch so we can help each other through these hard times. I give permission to this site to share my email address with you if that is appropriate. I wish you all the luck in the world my new friend, and pray we both find happiness because I believe now that it is possible.
