One of my friends is about to be put on it because she has treatment resistant depression. I know that’s it’s showing to be very effective for depression and anxiety. I think that you take a dose and then it’s combined with talk therapy that helps guide you through the experience. I wanted to try it myself but my doctor told me that he would want to try ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) first. ECT scares me a bit so for right now I’m just sticking to my antipsychotic and my occasional clonazepam.

Ect does sound scary, but I would take it, being talked about me getting it too. I hope the ketamine works for your friend. Be interested to see how she gets on. I have a friend had ect 6 sessions and it helped her. So hopefully it will for us. Hang in there, as I am doing also

It's a tranquiliser / anaesthetic that can be used illegally, but in very controlled medical settings administered slowly over 40 minutes via IV has been shown to be effective in helping treatment resistant depression.

Also, they now use Esketamine which is the same thing but administered via a nasal spray.

Have a look at some Youtube videos about people's experiences (bearing in mind everyone is different).
