It's great to have an RN on the team NurseMeme. I've got my Mum to run things by when I can't get any answers for therapies/medications. She's a retired nurse practitioner w/2 Master's and ran her own home healthcare company so, I get lots of info from her.
I know the other members really appreciate your input!

It has been said to do that. My infusions are an hour long. I'm pretty much sleeping with the sedation. Never have hallucinations. There is a huge difference between those who use that drug on the street and doctors that administrate it. The street drug is 100 × more potent and that may cause hallucinations..lol... But I'm not a drug user so idk. I've researched it. You need to Google it. It explains it all. No bad reviews I've seen yet. It is a very effective drug administered deftly from a professional. There are always risks with any drug, just do your research before taking any medication as I do. That's my suggestion to you.
