Thread: Lidocaine with a blend of Ketamine

    Lidocaine with a blend of Ketamine

    Howdy,

    A quick question to those who may have found relief from previous experiences.

    Infusions, Lidocaine, Lidocaine mixed with Ketamine etc.

    As a T8 incomplete para since '92, both neuropathic and nociceptive pain is a bitch, I threw out my back in 2010 lifting weights and since then, bejaysus, it has been a fun ride.
    Been on a variant of cocktails, all in high dosages and for one reason or another, most failed and as of now, Targin, Lyrica, Baclofen are meds of choice to take a slight edge off. With most meds for ortho pain, it messes with the bowel program, neuro meds fook with weight gain no matter whether the diet is strict.

    In December, I had my first Lidocaine infusion, aside from being off me skull during the infusion, there has been no benefit. My pain specialist advised, this can take a matter of months, infusions to get the correct cocktail that might work.
    On the next infusion, Ketamine, Magnesium are to be added to the Lidocaine. That'll be a blast.

    My preference is to go down this road, possibly venture back every two to three months for a top-up. Get rid of all the pills that are being popped and get me fooken life back.

    So much for "
    a
    quick question".

    Has anyone tried infusions with the above cocktail in an attempt to rid both
    neuropathic and nociceptive pain or have found a cocktail similar, with your pain specialist that has worked?

    Apologies if I'm parroting what may have come before you in a previous thread.

    Kind regards,

    Woofy

    This is being injected into your spinal cord?
    Do you have an SCI?

    I've never heard of this.

    Hi Mize,

    This is going in via IV directly into the vein.
    Yes, a SCI, T8 incomplete.

    Here in Ireland, infusions are not normally carried out, I switched pain specialist some time ago and it just so happened, he, being an anesthetist found great results when carrying out such trials in the UK for pain relief.

    Regards,

    SCI-Nurse,

    Thank you, much appreciated. Links made for interesting reading.

    FDA regulations, I believe can hamper progression in elevating chronic pain.
    An aspect that doesn't affect me on this side of the pond. If the FDA are to frown on Ketamine, I wonder what their view would be on having it mixed with Lidocaine.


    Regards,


    Woofy.
