I am a CRPS Ketamine patient and receive high dose infusions every 6-8 weeks keeping me out of wheelchair. Miracle! But the tinnitus I developed after one treatment lasted 9 months - continuous high pitch ringing in 1 ear. I’ve got behind on my treatments thanks to Covid restrictions in the facility treating me & recently have been freed of the ringing.
I did 6 IV ketamine infusions. My advice is basic- enter the space with the intention to be present with what is (of course you want a healing wondrous experience) and let this be the guide of you.
Hi, Babe! Side effects like you describe (tinnitus, depersonalization, confusion as to time, place, or person, dream-like state, etc.) occur because Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic agent.
"You may feel strange or slightly confused when you first come out of anesthesia."
"Ketamine may impair your thinking or reactions. Avoid driving or operating machinery for at least 24 hours after you have received ketamine."
It looks as if your question was cut off... if you need more information please post again.
