Hello, new here, I have suffered with depression for as long as I can remember. Tried every medication available. Now my Doc. is thinking outside the box ... Ketamine drip therapy or TMS therapy. Has anyone in here had any sort of experience with these, he also wants to start me on Vraylar...

I want to welcome you to the forum.
They tried Vraylar on me and it didn't work for me but I am very sensitive to side effects.

Hey, @Schatzi, welcome to the forum.

I did ketamine IV in June 2020. Did 6 sessions and it was mind-blowing to me, kind of changed a lot of how I view life in general. Really helped me for about 3 months w anxiety and depression, then seemed to wear off. That was $3K right there. Just finished with the nasal spray form of it (esketamine), which did not work at all for me and cost another $3K. Frustrating. Thinking of trying the IV again but not sure I want to spend the money on it.

I am also researching TMS out of desperation. Kind of run out of options at this point and am not doing well. I really hope you find something that works for you, I know how horrible it is to deal w treatment resistant depression for so long, trying everything you can. I am also trying modafinil, a stimulant, which I'm not sure is working.

Again, welcome to the forum and I hope you find it helpful. xx
