IV ketamine

My second infusion went great between 9am-12pm yesterday! I felt some pain and anxiety relief during the infusion and for an hour after. I thought I would sleep more because it's a horse tranquilizer but I haven't slept more than my usual 2-3 hours every day.
I have three more infusions this week so hopefully they will help more!
Feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Meganblondie I'm glad the infusion went well. I would imagine that the other infusions will build a blood level and give you more relief as you go along. I know it's a horse tranquilizer but they are giving you such a small fraction of the medication that it doesn't really work the same way. You're in my thoughts and prayers and hope you get some sleep. I wish I knew what that was like myself.. LOL!! Infomercials in the middle of the night don't cut it!!💕🙏🏻🌻

Meganblondie, it's good to hear the infusions are going well. Maybe you'll begin feeling enough relief that you're able to sleep more. Of course, after being an avg 2-3 hr a night you will likely need to retrain your body to sleep longer. Do you have noise & light blocking curtains in your room? I have them in every room, and they've helped a lot. My kids didn't believe it until I gave my grandchildren some, and they actually slept later on weekends! Lol Hugs & prayers the treatments continue successfully! And maybe before too long you'll feel like going neigh-t neigh-t! 🐎💤Lol Sorry but I couldn't resist. 🙂💕🙏🌼
