What protocol / methods are you following?
Before Covid messed up my Schedule I was doing ketamine infusions of 140mg/hour for two hours, once every three weeks. In between I was doing 200mg lozenges every three days at home. I missed an infusion which messed me up and I’m trying to get back into a normal routine. So for now I’m doing lozenges and nasal spray every night..
What have the actual treatment experiences been like for you? Visuals, thoughts, feelings, etc?
Each infusion is different. Some of them I become very disassociated and I go into a whole different dimension or dream world, other times I just feel “floaty”, and other times I’ve been really uncomfortable and felt “out of body” but not in a good way. It is honestly very different each time (I’ve done about 30 infusions).
(3) What insights have you gained through treatment?
I keep a list on my phone of things I’ve learned during ketamine sessions, they vary wildly. Some are very insightful, and some are just gibberish.
(4) What advice do you have for set & setting?
Avoid bright lights or loud jarring sounds. Get comfortable and have a playlist picked out. Experiment with what kind of music helps you. .
(5) Are you doing any sort of integration therapy, and if so, is that useful to you?
I have a traditional therapist I talk to, but we don’t do any Ketamine therapy (I’ve talked to some people who talk to there therapist while doing an infusion). It is helpful to process, everyone needs a therapist.
