Thanks for the query.

Oral ketamine has not been used very frequently probably because of side effects.
It has mostly been used as infusions for control of CRPS.

It is good that you are controlled with the above said medication.
The equivalent oral doses are difficult to guess, as absorption by the local route cannot be quantified accurately.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other clarifications.
