Bat Country - Ketamine Treatment 3

Updated: Aug 14, 2019

Remember the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas? Well, with round 3 bipolar depression treatment we once again up’d the ketamine dose. Again, overall, it was just a kind of high but for about the first 5 minutes after standing up I swear I knew what Johnny Depp felt like in the middle of Bat Country. I walked a little more slowly to the car but all in all still felt fully lucid. The effects of the more positive mood lasted a little bit longer, I would say closer to 5-6 hours this time. I managed to avoid the feeling of the heavier depression post-treatment that I had experienced with my first two. Perhaps because I was better prepared for it this time. I did, although, experience some drop-off in my mood and did need to withdraw from the social situation I was in and retreat to my bedroom to close my eyes and rest by the time night rolled around. My treatment had been at 9AM. That being said, I lasted until about 6PM before I felt as though I needed to get a break from everything. I am noticing that I seem to be a bit more sleepy for one day following the treatment. Thursday will be my 4th treatment and my final one in the initial series. I am anxious to see how it all works out and see how well my brain responds to the influx of this new drug. Fingers crossed.
