protocol was based on a project done in Texas:
Side effects are occurring with especially higher doses than I used:
- cases of hypomania in bipolar subjects but generally with higher doses:

- However, it is disputed that this happens with doses used in my poster:
Niciu, M. J., Luckenbaugh, D. A., Ionescu, D. F., Mathews, D. C., Richards, E. M., & Zarate, C. A. (2013).
Subanesthetic dose ketamine does not induce an affective switch in three independent samples of treatment-resistant major depression.
Biological psychiatry, 74(10), e23-e24.
- I had one bipolar subject get more agitated in March one year but that was around “bipolar switch” season so wasn’t sure was directed connected and patient settled by increasing her quetiapine.
Had one allergic reaction where an elderly lady had her tongue swelled and got painful though her airway was not affected and her O2 sats were good. Needed adrenaline and a visit to emergency. Confirms my practice of doing ketamine in the office and usually only after initial drowsiness improves, considered monitored use at home with a reliable partner.
