Ketamine Infusion Therapy NYC

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is an anesthetic that has been safely used since the 70’s after FDA approval. It was first used as a general anesthetic, which is still being used today.

More recently, ketamine has been used in new and remarkable ways; most impressive of all is its ability to act as an efficacious, rapid-acting medication against depression and other mood disorders.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy FAQ’s

What is Ketamine?
Ketamine was developed in 1962 by Parke-Davis.  It has been used safely as an effective anesthetic since the 70’s for a variety of medical purposes for both children and adults. It works primarily as NMDA receptor antagonist, commonly described as a ‘dissociative’ anesthetic.  Recently, it has been touted as the most significant breakthroughs in the treatment of treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain and other mood disorders.  Unlike traditional psychotropic medications, which can take weeks to months to take effect, ketamine infusion works within hours of an infusion.  This can be especially useful for severely depressed individuals with suicidal thoughts, individuals who suffer from major depressive disorder and other mental illnesses.  The immediate relief could be lifesaving.
How likely is it to work?

Our experience, along with several clinical studies, have shown a 70-80% response rate.

How do I know if it is working?
Most report a noticeable feeling of hope, calmness, lightness and increased functionality. It could be as subtle as being able to do daily chores and self-grooming, to being able to be more social and meet up with friends.  The effects could happen hours after infusion; but, generally it could take 2-3 days to be noticeable.
How many infusions will I need?
We will schedule you for a series of 6 infusions over 2-3 weeks.  Most patients will feel the improvement after 2-3 infusions. If this is not the case, we will adjust your infusion accordingly.  If there is still no response after this, we generally terminate the treatment.  If you do see an improvement, however, we will finish the full 6 infusion course to maximize the brain’s synaptic repair and its duration.
