> Hi Scott,

Hi, Denise.

> I hope you are feeling a little bit better at least.

I am. I am no longer feeling the negative side effects that Trintellix and Effexor produced two weeks ago. After taking 2.5 mg/day for one week, I raised the dosage to 5.0 mg/day. I am supposed to remain there for two weeks and then see my doctor to figure out what to do next.

> I guess you are still waiting for the medication to take affect in a good way.

I am hopeful that things will improve. I am happy to report that I am feeling better now than I would be were I not to take any medication at all.

> Just to let you know that my friend sent me this email regarding esketamine. Below is an excerpt from it. So it is something for you to bear in mind. The only things my friend has responded to our VNS (for a short time) and DBS (initially).

Thanks, Denise. Good to know. I tried intranasal ketamine a few years ago. I dosed every day for two weeks. Nothing.

Have you developed a treatment plan for moving forward?
