frequently Asked questions

WHAT IS KETAMINE?

Ketamine is an anesthetic that was developed in the early 1960's. It is one of the most widely used drugs in modern medicine, and is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines. While it has a variety of  uses, it is approved by the FDA as an anesthetic. Due to it's strong safety profile, Ketamine is frequently used in surgical settings. Ketamine Infusion Therapy is considered "off-label." It is estimated that nearly 1/4 of all prescription medications in the US are prescribed "off-label."

HOW DOES KETAMINE WORK?

With an effectiveness of 60-80%, Ketamine has been proven to stimulate neuron growth in the brain in as quickly as one hour. Many scientists studying Ketamine are focusing on the neurotransmitter, glutamate, which plays an important role in neural activation and helps the brain repair damaged neurons affected by stress and mental illness.

HOW SOON WILL MY SYMPTOMS IMPROVE?

Prior to your first treatment, you will complete a questionnaire, establishing a baseline of your symptoms. We will follow up after each infusion to determine response. If needed, we an adjust the treatment accordingly to maximize benefits. After the infusion, you may notice positive effects as soon as 30 minutes post-infusion, but typically improvements begin several hours post-treatment.

CAN I EAT/DRINK PRIOR TO MY INFUSION?

Please avoid all solid food for 6 hours prior to your Ketamine Infusion. You may drink clear liquids up until 3 hours before your infusion.

ARE THERE MEDICATIONS THAT CAN INTERFERE WITH KETAMINE TREATMENT?

HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO UNDERGO TREATMENT?

The number of infusions and length of treatment is individual to each person and can vary a great deal between clients. Most find that a single infusion will provide several weeks of relief. After a series of infusions, some people could remain symptom free for several months or longer. Booster Infusions are available when needed.

More than this, When physical symptoms are relieved, it can also trigger a dramatic improvement in mood and help clients feel healthy, function normally and stop feeling negatively towards themselves.
