one day later: ketamine not working out

It's only been a day, but in that time it became perfectly clear the ketamine nasal spray is not something I should continue using.

I have become increasingly anxious, paranoid, irritable and depressed since I started using it daily last week. Since it doesn't seem to work well for treatment and I can't tolerate it for prevention, it seems that we're already back to the drawing board once again.

It was worth trying, but it's not a good fit for me. Still, we've increased my Namenda dose, so perhaps that will show some benefits with time. It's hard not to feel gravely disappointed every time another option doesn't pan out, but I'm trying to keep myself as even keel as possible and ride out these feelings. It's not as though it's unfamiliar territory.
