Kidding. Or am I?
“Ketamine is a neurological drug, classed as a NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor antagonist. It is believed to work in a number of different ways in the brain – relating to calcium channels, serotonin, and glutamate – terms that will be familiar with migraine researchers in particular. In fact, ketamine has been especially useful in the treatment of headache or migraine that just won’t go away and isn’t responding to other kinds of treatment (refractory). It’s given as an IV or intranasal treatment. Of course, this means it’s way down on the list of treatments that will be given – it’s rare and even when it’s tried it’s often not successful.”
I am way down on the list of treatments available so this sounds like something I can try, since I do get migraines that just don’t go away. I’m going to have to remember this one.
