> 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.

I also find ketamine to be a little activating and use Lunesta to help with long term sleep issues. I took 1 mg. lorazapam for a couple days and seemed to fall back into depression. Chumbawumba, could I ask what form and dosage of ketamine are you taking? I'm using 75mg sublingual troches twice a week. I'm also wondering what are the best supplements to take with ketamine for TRD. I take magnesium threonate, curcumin and fish oil and thinking about adding acetyl-L-carnitine.
