> I was prescribed 150 mg sublingual troches for daily use. The response to ketamine seems highly idiosyncratic. You may need to be on a higher daily dose.

A friend of mine *requires* Lamictal to obtain a full response to intranasal ketamine.

Isn't a 150 mg dose of ketamine substantially higher than what is currently recommended for sublingual administration? You can take too much ketamine such that it has no therapeutic effect for depression or anxiety. That's why the I.V. recommendation is so exacting. John H. Krystal at Yale explains this.
