Re: Ketamine treatment for TRD while on an MAOI safe? dbser

> I am on an MAOI, and have tried every treatment FDA approved plus for my treatment-resistant MDD. I am thinking of trying Ketamine, but not only am I on an MAOI (Parnate/Trancyl-I don't know how to spell it), I also have DBS (which was effective for some time, but no longer). I am in the process of pursuing an appointment with a local psychiatrist with knowledge of ketamine treatment, but I'd like to know now if taking an MAOI contraindicates the treatment. Thanks.

Hey dbser,

this really piqued my interest because I'm about to commence Esketamine treatment and the docs are worried because I'm on a large AD cocktail and take Oxycodone for chronic pain. It's the Oxy they're worried about due to increased CNS depression. Anyway, the REALLY weird thing is that these super-high caliber Mt. Sinai psychiatrists have required my GP to write a letter saying that Oxy+Ketamine is OK. WTF? My GP was as astounded and confused as I was.

Secondly, you write "I also have DBS (which was effective for some time, but no longer)." - what happened to DBS? How long was it effective for?

I'd love to know as the Esketamine is a means-to-an-end for me to get VNS/DBS.

Any info on DBS would be hugely appreciated.

I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
