    It's hard to be depressed when your unconscious. Isn't Ketamine used as an anesthetic ?

    I imagine cocaine and heroine will reduce suicidal thoughts while you are under their influence too. But like most pharmaceuticals there are seriously bad side effects.
    Ketamine Abuse
    Ketamine is a rather unpleasant drug in the long-term. It tends to cause a wide variety of effectsrelating to almost every area of the body. In the stomach, it often causes severe abdominal pain. It's very easy to accidentally hurt yourself while on ketamine because it's an anesthetic. Pain tells us when we're injured or doing something that is likely to lead to injury. It also forces us to stop and focus on that injury, preventing further damage. Someone on Ketamine can incur a serious injury and continue on as if nothing happened, exacerbating the problem.

    Ketamine also causes long-term damage to the bladder and urinary tract that can result in a condition known as ketamine bladder syndrome. This triggers decreased control of the bladder with incontinence. Ketamine bladder syndrome may also cause blood in the urine and ulcers in the bladder.

    Or they are forever locked in a fetal position on the bathroom floor trying to get all the bugs off of them. Dunno, that shit is not to be messed with. It’s one of the few drugs that should not be messed with recreationally in my opinion.

    After 10 years of constant over powering depression and suicidal thoughts what worked for me was Geodon and celexa. Geodon has a few side effects but well worth the risk for me.
