With I.V., and perhaps with intranasal administration as well, the treatment does not work well unless someone reaches the threshold of mild dissociation. Too little doesn't work - of course. However, too much doesn't work either according to early studies.

Hi Scott, I take a dissolvable lozenge. It tasted shockingly bad at first, but it's fine really. A mail order pharmacy compounds a month's supply for $40.

I was prescribed one every three days, but I've extended that to at least four. The process is 24 hrs because I take it around 6 pm and am very tired the next day. (I have another chronic illness. I don't think this is the case for an average user.)

It's like not having been depressed. At first, the feeling was very strange, like, wtf? As someone w bipolar ll, there is no hypomania.

I've been dysthymic etc since maybe 12?

Thanks for your support! :)
