WHAT IS KETAMINE?
Listed as an essential medicine by the World Health Organization, Ketamine is an anesthetic that’s been used in as early as 1960s and has been one of the most widely used drugs in modern medicine. It’s got a safe history in the surgical community and is mostly used in the pediatric field. It’s used for treating chronic and extreme physical pain when other modalities have failed.
HOW DOES KETAMINE INFUSION WORK?
Ketamine blocks the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor, one of the three major glutamate receptors. Essentially, doing this results in an increase of glutamate which in turn, initiates a cascade of neurobiological events that experts and researchers believe is a key reason in Ketamine’s antidepressant effects.

AFTER INFUSION THERAPY
Following the treatment, you may experience slight symptoms as mentioned above. You should not drive a car or operate heavy machinery for the rest of the day. Your improvements will be assessed each infusion session to make sure you are being treated appropriately. The results of the treatment will vary individually, based on your mental health history, severity and duration. Maintenance or “booster” infusions may be necessary; the intervals will depend on your specific situation and the collaborative recommendations of your mental health provider.
