    I have been talking with my pharmancist and he is wanting to compound a transdermal gel using Ketamine, Ketoproten, Gabapentin, clonidine. Has any one use a Transdermal Gel using any of these products?
    It is suppost to be used in my case at the neck to work on the face.
    Any information on this would be appreciated

    Unfortunately I do not know any of the products you mention in your post, but I can tell you that, in my experience, transdermal products work well - for me.

    I was using progesterone cream for HRT and I now use magnesium cream for pain. Putting it through the skin really takes the pressure off the liver.

    Apparently, I was told that the most important thing is the quality of the gel or cream i.e., how effectively it penetrates the skin. I know that my mag. cream is good, but it does leave my skin very dry. Good luck in your search.

    I've never heard of that. Where do you get it?

    I get magnesium cream from my compounding chemist on a script from my doc. It works like mag. tablets but by passes the liver. If you check the threads you will find stuff on it.
