That's irresponsible, lazy journalism to interview the doctor who profits from the drug's sales instead of independent experts.

How about you make psychedelics legal, and there, you've solved the depression problem.

Jane Doe says:

I’ve gotten infusions of it since 1/2018. Saved my life AND helped me get off opiates for my chronic pain (from chronic illnesses). It’s $350 for me per infusion. I didn’t think it would help. I’d tried everything. I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone. But it saved my life.

Michelle Wallace says:

I have been depressed for years and years, since a child, turned to heroin for years as well. Almost four years clean & my depression has only gotten worse, along with anxiety. I’ve been diagnosed a plethora of diagnoses, multitude of psych meds, and have also been through quite a lot. Primarily the loss of my first born son, the loss of my twin sister, the loss of my younger sister a year after, & many other losses but those being most profound. I just want relief. I want to feel as if “normal” people do. I want energy, no fatigue daily. I want to enjoy life and it’s beauty. I want motivation. I want to strive. I’m also 8.5 months pregnant and want to love every single second of it. I want him to have a mother who doesn’t have to force herself to even get out of bed, and I will force myself to do all and more. But I want to WANT to do these things, or rather the energy and drive to do them. I hate myself and how I am. I go to therapy. I’ve seen a dozen psychs. I want to be better and medication doesn’t help. Maybe I haven’t tried the right ones. Looking into tCNS (sp), transcranial stimulation as it has promising results but am put off on electrodes through my brain especially DIY at home. IDK anymore what to do or rather if I’ll ever be happy. I hope I find a cure.

William says:

Esketamine is a fast acting powerful stimulant that creates an instant "high" sensation. Esketamine is being used more and more in illegal recreational use because of the instant "altered state effect" it creates. In clinical trials, six patients who were taking the drug died, three from suicide. Esketamine creates a feeling of being temporarily "disconnected" from your body and your mind.
