Ketamine Treatment questions

During a ketamine IV therapy session, you might experience a range of sensations. Some people report feeling a sense of dreaminess or disconnection from their environment, changes in their perception of time, and visual or auditory changes. These effects are temporary and quickly subside after the infusion has completed.

An IV ketamine therapy session typically lasts about 40 Minutes. This does not include the time for preparation before the session, post-session questions, or recovery time afterward.

Some immediate side effects can include nausea, an increase in blood pressure and heart rate, disorientation or confusion, and vivid dreams or hallucinations. These are temporary and resolve shortly after the session.

No, it is not recommended to drive or operate heavy machinery for at least 24 hours after a ketamine IV therapy session.

Responses can vary. Some people report feeling tired or having a ‘hangover’ effect. Others report feeling a significant improvement in their mood. It’s important to take it easy and rest following your session.

It’s typically recommended to fast for at least 6 hours before your therapy session to minimize the risk of nausea or vomiting.

Most medications are safe to take however we will review your medications with you and let you know if there are any medications that might interact.

Some people report feeling better within hours or days of their first ketamine infusion, but for others, it may take several sessions. Everyone’s response to ketamine therapy is unique.

Though long-term side effects of ketamine are not fully understood, as most research has focused on short-term use, there are no expected long term effects. However, some studies have suggested memory issues for a small subset of people after repeated ketamine infusions.

The number of sessions needed varies greatly from person to person though research has shown that a greater number of infusions causes a longer period of benefit. We will work with you to create a program that generates benefit and fits your lifestyle and schedule
