I’m planning on getting ketamine therapy for my diagnosed major depression but have some questions for people who’ve done this before

Hi, I really want to do this but I have a few concerns. Please tell me what type you did- the nasal spray or the shot.
1) What happens when you stop the treatment? Any worsening depression?
2) How many times a week did you have to do it? Did it interfere with you going on vacations?
3) Did it stop working over time?

I don’t have any experience with this but wanted to offer my personal opinion.
I don’t think ketamine therapy is a very good idea... ketamine is a powerful nasty drug that can have some major side effects.
I think their is a lot better options out there.
Sorry can’t offer advice directly on it but if you decide to go threw with it then I hope it works well for you 😁

I had a chance to talk to the person on the phone who did Ketamine therapy. He said “ all the clouds on my head were gone.” He does IV injection once a month for maintenance.
Just for I formation....
