Yes I think they don't want people coming out of surgery tripping balls. I had to stop taking flurazapam for 5 days before I could feel the ketamine trippy-ness. Flurazapam has an active metabolite with a half life of up to 200 hours or so.

I know benzos completely negate the psychotomiimetic effects of ketamine. I'm pondering whether they kill the antidepressant effect as well.

For the first 5 days of being fluraxapam free I used my sublingual ketamine regularly and nothing. Then day six I feel it but not much antidepressant effect. Now it's been a few weeks since I took flurazapam and ketamine makes me feel great. Maybe a little too great. I feel a little hypomanic. But I've been depressed for so long I can't be objective about whether this will lead to a Charlie Sheen moment or whether this is just the way normal people feel and the way I used to feel sooooo long ago before I was diagnosed.
