(This, in fact, was what led me to sub to this board after having left for quite a few years...I realised that I was way out of touch in regard to new developments in clinical psychiatry!)

Have you tried ketamine? My doc was curious if it might help me and said nasal ketamine is in development. I have read mention of potential for negative cognitive side effects with long term use.
