Qualifying for ketamine and choosing someone to watch over me

Read Sober Psychonaut disclaimer for people in sobriety exploring psychedelic medicine.

Now I’m wondering if I will qualify for ketamine sessions. What if I’m too “well” already?

I had to take a questionnaire first and answer a bunch of questions ranging from mental health history to dependence on opioids, suicidal ideation, and what my expectations were for ketamine sessions. In the part where they asked about coordinating with my current provider, I chose no.

The reason being, my current line of treatment is traditional medicine and I’m not confident of how the conversation would go with my psych nurse, the person who prescribes me Wellbutrin and Prozac. I wrote in the questionnaire that I’d like to get off of those drugs permanently and I’m not interested in having psychedelic medicine conversations with people who aren’t open to it.

Admittedly, I don’t know if she’s open to it or not. I just don’t want my groove disturbed if she isn’t.

I also trust the pscyh nurse I’ll be consulting with before ketamine therapy to take into consideration any medications I’m currently taking.
