Yes I was on ketamine infusions....ketamine and lignucaine together. I was brought to the Pain Clinic and an IV was put into my arm. They then infused me with ketamine and Lignucaine:eek: it took over an hour to go in. It made me quite drowsy and I slept while it was infusing. Then I went home, my husband had to drive me as I couldnt drive afterwards. It made me feel quite queasy but I didnt get any relief from it at all. I had that done once a month for a few months but on the final one they upped the dose and I was hallucinating. OMG it was awful. I felt my throat was the size of a pin head and that I was choking, that I couldnt even breathe and everything seemed huge. But obviously it was all in my head. It was an awful sensation. So I refused to have any more. Thats the only way I was on Ketamine Jenna.....its used for horses too:eek::D

I believe that med was used on me for an epidural in my cervical spine. It is on my records. It worked for me for a short period of time, and I didnt' have an side effects from it. No injection site problem eithor. ginnie

I used it recreationally once .. A real disasociate drug .. If the doc offered it me now I'd run a mile! Well, perhaps not run ...
