Some people are interested in learning more about a treatment I've been doing at home. I take Ketamine in nasal spray form at home under my doctor's supervision.

Here are my answers to some of the questions I've been most frequently asked about my experiences using it.

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is an anesthetic medication, and it is not generally available to consumers in the United States. My doctor prescribes it for me, similarly to the way he would prescribe any other drug, and a compounding pharmacist prepares it into a nasal spray form for me to use for treating my migraine disease.

Why do you use Ketamine nasal spray?

After successfully giving the medication to me intravenously, my doctor wanted to make it available to me in another form.

How does the Ketamine nasal spray affect you?

It sometimes makes my head a bit cloudy. More importantly it increases my tolerance for conditions that ordinarily trigger my migraine attacks.

Does the Ketamine nasal spray leave an aftertaste?

At first I noticed an aftertaste in the back of my throat. But after using it a few times I found that this didn't bother me at all. I barely notice it now.
