I'm not sure if this belongs in OD so mods remove to the appropriate place if needed and my apologies
My question is-has anyone on here ever been prescribed any form of ketamine for any type of pain or know or heard of ayone being prescribed it?Specifially I'm talking about Ketamine creams with maybe Lidocaine in the mix.I've heard of these types of creams and also a patch but cannot find any and I mean ANY info on it!!! are they prescribed in the U.S? I heard that they need to be "made"or prepared at a specific pharmacy--correct me if Im wrong-- From what I've read its been debated whether or not K, which is a an N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor antagonist works well for Neuropathic pain or any other type of pain. It would seem like it would work very well in for chonic pain and maybe be a better substitute in place of other anesthetics. I'm not very aware of its side effects which maybe one of the reasons why it isn't used.
I'm very interested in the creams that contain K and also Lidocaine to use for chronic PM. Any info on anything about this topic would be much appreciated!!!
