One of the research clinicians who worked with ketamine early on found that his patients did not respond well unless a dosage was reached that produced a mild dissociative state. It doesn't last very long, though. Maybe an hour? Increasing the dosage beyond this threshold yielded a loss of efficacy.

Thank you, Scott. I'll update as time goes on. I'd encourage people who are curious to investigate.

The time between doses as prescribed is every 3 days. I've lengthened it to 4 and might consider 5 if residual fatigue doesn't improve. At 200 mg, induces
about the right amount of disassociation in my case.

I hope you are still doing well. Thanks again for your support for me and on this board.
