  1. Perhaps this research doctors knows: Dr. Pierre Blier at University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research. pblier@rohcg.on.ca

  2. Sorry, any doctors who can do ketamine injections for depressed patients in CANADA? Calgary?

  3. Hello,
    We are starting to do Ketamine infusions here in Portland, Oregon at our clinic in the Pearl.
    I am trying to get my name added to the list of providers above. I am a board certified anesthesiologist, and we have done infusions on 3 patients in the last month.
    Feel free to send me an email if we can help you.

    Best Regards, Dr. Abreu

    • Thank you dr Abeu for the answer and link. I understood that both groups improved significally at 230 min. post injection however moderately in effect size by ECT group and largely for non ECT taking group.
      That means that the improvement was the best achieved with patients who never went under electrical shock therapy.

      I would like to know more what can improve for the first group and for how long, as I am from that one. I functionally, cognitively low and suicidal, memory short and long affected. Basicly I do not know how I am still alive but I have a hope that maybe the above treatment can be a miracle for me. I wait for the response.

  4. DR Abreu, how patients who took many ECT ( I took 19 ) ? respond to ketamine injections? Do you have some experience with these patients or referrals to research data on that issue?

    • Jana, I had 22 ECT treatments in two courses (10+10+2) about one year prior to my participation in the NIH ketamine study. The ECT initially helped but by the beginning of the third course I was concerned about memory loss. It did help in the sense of providing a “re-set” for my suicidal ideation and it definitely provided a calming effect but it was nothing like the ketamine. So I guess you could say I was semi-responsive to the ECT but significantly responsive to the ketamine infusion. If I could afford it, I would get more.

  5. Hello Jana,
    Well the short answer is yes to the above questions. One of the early patients we began to treat here in Portland had previously had 17 ECT treatments with no improvement. He has had depression for his entire adult life. He is 56 y/o and was diag. with depression at age 24. After his first IV infusion we noted a decrease in his PHQ-9 self assessment of depression symptoms and a decrease in his anxiety. We continue to treat him on a weekly to bi-weekly basis. I know that is anecdotal however that is my only experience so far with depression resistant to ECT.
    There is however a small study from the National Institute of Mental Health that looked at giving Ketamine to 17 patients with ECT resistant depression. They concluded that these patients did in fact exhibit an improvement in their depressive symptoms. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.
    Regards, Dr. E. Abreu

  7. please please something come up for north carolina

    • If you find a doctor in NC please let me know. In the meantime I am seriously thinking of going to Atlanta.
      Thank you.

        Dr. Andro Giorgadze did my ketamine infusion for a clinical study in Atlanta. I would highly recommend you try it if you can’t take the depression anymore or just aren’t having any satisfaction in your life at all. My results lasted for a pretty long time, a couple months at least after going probably 6x over the course of 2 weeks. This is not typical though. They usually last 4 weeks or so from what I have heard/read. You might be able to get into the clinical trial I don’t know if it’s recruiting or not. Make your your testosterone levels are at least 500 and your thyroid is working these both will make you feel depressed and all my psychiatrists never even tested them.

    • Please let me know if you find a doctor in NC or another nearby state. Thanks much.

  8. I’m from Detroit, MI and am desperately seeking the closet low dose ketamine infusion provider. Any new leads?

  9. Are there any providers in the San Francisco Bay area? If there are I would like to hear from them/you about their services.

  10. Ketamin Infusions in France / Europe ???

    Hi I am a french man desperatly looking for keta IV in France, or UK or Europe ; could someone help please ?
    Rgds

  11. I saw with great interest that you had received ketamine treatments from Dr. Giorgadze in Atlanta. I have a daughter in Charlotte, NC who has suffered terribly from depression for something over 20 years. I could not find anyone who administers Ketamine in NC and I could not find anyone closer than Atlanta. However, I used Healthgrades to get info on Dr. Giorgadze and, although I can’t remember now what I found I there was something that caused me not to select him. Please tell me of your experience and what you thought of him – how many treatments, overwhat time period – and what have you done since the treatments. Thank you very much.

  12. Thanks so much for responding. How did you find Dr. Giorgadze. Did he adminster or did he have a an anesthesiologist do it? Also what have you done since your last treatment? Have you heard about the use of a nasal spray? NJ
