Ketamine IV Infusion Therapy

Ketamine is a dissociative class compound approved by the FDA for anesthesia and for sedation during medical procedures. Its use for the treatment of depression, anxiety, chronic pain, PTSD, drug and alcohol abuse is off-label and has not been approved by the FDA.

However, over several decades, research has shown Ketamine therapy helps lessen symptoms of many psychiatric disorders, reduce intensity of chronic pain, and may even protect against and prevent the development of depression and PTSD, if given prior to impending stressful or traumatic experiences.

Ketamine has a unique effect in that it can work very rapidly to ‘re program’ out the mind’s negativity. Patients frequently see improvement in their symptoms within minutes of treatment.

The benefits of Ketamine include:

A decrease of depression, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms.

Help with a variety of chronic pain syndromes and psychiatric disorders.

Alleviation of the cravings for drugs and alcohol.

An intense feeling of euphoria.

A broader, more grateful perspective.

While the goal is improvement of symptoms, results cannot be guaranteed, and there is no way to predict how any individual will respond to Ketamine infusion therapy. The effects may not be long lasting and studies have shown that a minimum of four to six infusions within a month will increase the efficacy of treatment.

Coupling Ketamine therapy with the stellate ganglion block (SGB), psychotherapy, and behavioral change can maximize treatment effects. Ask for more information.

All Ketamine drips are administered by a nurse anesthetist or an emergency medicine physician. Our Ketamine drips include complimentary 50mg NAD+ and 400mg Magnesium, to optimize the results.

Ketamine Therapy FAQs:

What is Ketamine IV Infusion Therapy?

Ketamine is a dissociative class compound approved by the FDA for anesthesia and for sedation during medical procedures. Since its approval in 1970, it has been widely used in operating rooms and emergency departments. Ketamine’s use for the treatment of depression, anxiety, chronic pain, PTSD, drug and alcohol abuse is off-label and has not been approved by the FDA. However, over several decades research has shown Ketamine therapies have helped to lessen or alleviate symptoms of many psychiatric disorders, as well as help with chronic pain syndromes.

Why choose Ketamine Therapy?

Unlike conventional therapies, Ketamine has been associated with a rapid decrease in depression, anxiety and PTSD symptoms. It also has been shown helpful with a variety of chronic pain syndromes and in alleviating the cravings for drug and alcohol. Ketamine has a unique effect in that it can work very rapidly – patients frequently see improvement in their symptoms within hours of treatment.

How do I know it will work?

While the goal is improvement in symptoms, results cannot be guaranteed, and there is no way to predict how an individual will respond to Ketamine infusion therapy. The effects may not be long-lasting, and studies have shown that a series of six infusions at weekly intervals increases the efficacy of treatment. Coupling Ketamine therapy along with psychotherapy and behavioral changes is designed to maximize benefit and sustain gains in treatment.

What is the procedure like?

You will have an IV line started so you can receive Ketamine. Your blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation will be monitored at the beginning of the infusion procedure and it will be entirely supervised by a CRNA, Nurse Anesthetist, or medical doctor.

How much Ketamine will I receive?

You will be given a sub-anesthetic dose of Ketamine by slow continuous infusion. We may adjust the infusion rate during each infusion – depending on how you are responding – to maximize the effectiveness of each infusion. Adjuvant medications may also be administered if necessary such as anti-nausea medicine or a mild sedative.

Do you have headphones and playlists to choose for my Ketamine experience?

Yes. We usually play a calming, meditative playlist, but we do our best to accommodate individual requests, so if you have a prefered playlist, please let us know. We also provide noise-cancelling headphones as another option.

What other additional supportive tools do you provide to enhance my Ketamine experience?

We provide eye masks, pillows and blankets – including a weighted blanket – for your use. There is an additional option of adding Craniosacral therapy to your experience for an additional charge, and it is also possible to bring your own therapist or mental health professional for your guided experience.

May I bring my own water bottle, or do you have water?

Once your infusion is done, we provide water bottles, or you may bring a water bottle to refill with our Culligan water dispenser.

What if I get hungry?

We offer healthy snacks or you may choose to pack your own lunch or snacks to eat after your infusion. You will be able to relax afterwards in our IV lounge, and your driver is welcome to join you there.

How long does it take?

The duration of the infusion lasts about 1 hour. We will monitor you in the clinic for 1 hour after the procedure.
