  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I have OCD but after I started Zonegram 50mg bd 3 days ago, I have noticed my anxiety getting increasingly worse and I had a severe panic attack yesterday. The Zonegram has also decreased the severe paranoia I feel with the ketamine but it has introduced some memory loss. Otherwise I feel the best I have in years. Should I swap my antidepressant to help with the anxiety?

    I recently came off Gabapentin (1800 tds --> 1200bd --> tapering down to nothing) and noticed my baseline pain level rising, hence the starting of the Zonegran.

    How can I be sure the the positive side effects of the Zonegran are not going to disappear once I leave hospital and stop the ketamine and morphine? Basically is what I'm feeling just a reaction of the Zonegran and ketamine or will the Zonegran continue to work in my favour (minus the anxiety and memory loss) once I leave hospital?

    I am in hospital now, I have entered hospital for Multiple Sclerosis neuropathic pain and am on these drugs to treat neuropathic pain but suspect I may also have Crohn's Disease/ulcerative colitis/irritable bowel syndrome hence the Neuropathic Pain and Abdominal Pain.
