What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is an FDA-approved anesthetic medication that has been used safely for decades. In addition to its anesthetic properties, ketamine has been found in clinical studies to have rapid antidepressant, anti-anxiety, and analgesic effects in some patients, even when other treatments have failed.
At lower “sub-anesthetic” doses, ketamine is administered through an IV infusion. It works differently than traditional antidepressants and anxiety medications, making it an ideal option for those who haven’t responded well to other treatments.
Our approach incorporates both prescription and non-prescription medications, supplements, nutritional counseling, and follow-up consultations to ensure accountability and achieve success.
The Benefits of Ketamine Infusions
Ketamine infusions have a number of advantages over traditional medications:
Patients often experience significant improvement in their symptoms within hours or days, rather than the weeks or months it can take for other antidepressant medications to work. The effects can last for weeks to months with periodic maintenance infusions.
Fewer side effects
Ketamine does not have the bothersome side effects of some psychiatric medications. The primary side effect during infusion is usually mild and transient dissociation.
Ketamine stimulates the growth of neural connections and improves communication between brain cells. This can lead to long-term remission of psychiatric symptoms.
Works where others have failed
Approximately 70% of patients with treatment-resistant depression experience rapid relief with ketamine infusions. Ketamine also benefits those with anxiety, chronic pain, PTSD, OCD, and other conditions.
Ketamine is not appropriate for everyone. That’s why meeting with our board-certified psychiatrist is required prior to scheduling a ketamine infusion. As a pioneer in ketamine therapy with over 10 years of experience, Dr. Rosen will determine if you are a candidate and help create a customized treatment plan.
What to Expect
Your ketamine infusion will take place in our peaceful, spa-like infusion suite under the supervision of our medical staff.
The process can take about 1-2 hours:
- You’ll get settled in a reclining chair in a private room with relaxing music and lighting.
- Your vitals will be monitored throughout to ensure safety.
- Ketamine will be administered through an IV or injection. Most patients experience a pleasant floaty feeling as it takes effect.
- You’ll float in and out of consciousness in a dream-like state for about 45 minutes while the ketamine is infused.
- Our staff will be present the entire time to maximize safety, comfort, and effectiveness.
- After the infusion, you’ll remain in the recovery area until the dissociative effects have dissipated, about 30-60 minutes.
- Refreshments and emotional support will be provided during your recovery period.
- You’ll leave our office feeling relaxed without impairments in thinking or movement.
Most patients require 4-6 initial infusions over 2-3 weeks to obtain maximal and sustained benefits. Maintenance treatments are then customized based on your individual needs, ranging from monthly to a few times per year.
Proven Effective for Treatment-Resistant Conditions
Numerous research studies have demonstrated ketamine’s ability to rapidly reduce symptoms of mood and anxiety disorders, even when multiple medications and therapies have failed.
Ketamine lifts depression in hours instead of weeks and improves suicidal thinking faster than traditional antidepressants. Effects generally last about 7-14 days after each infusion during the initial series. Maintenance infusions can sustain remission for months at a time.
