> i finally did my ketamine infusion last week. i'm very sorry to say that i did not get a positive result. possibly one day of placebo relief, if even that.
Damn, that sucks. :-(
> So what do you suggest for a guy do who has tried ect, several ssri's, remeron, effexor and now ketamine, all w/out any positive results?
A tricyclic anti-depressant which you may need to combine with a mood stabilizer (e.g. Lamictal, Lithium) for extra effect? Lithium is good for ruminating thoughts especially if those thoughts involve suicidal ideation.
Hang in there.
