Ketamine has been shown to improve the symptoms of various psychiatric conditions in certain populations. Everyone’s response to treatment will be different but individuals usually report improvements in psychiatric symptoms and pain but be aware that symptom relief cannot be guaranteed. You need to be aware that symptom relief can last from days to months, therefore multiple infusions might be recommended or required for long term symptom relief.
The use of ketamine to treat the above conditions is considered “off label” by the FDA. There is nothing wrong with using medication for “off label” purposes as a large percentage of medication prescribed in this country is for “off label” use. Ketamine infusion therapy for psychiatric conditions and acute or chronic pain is considered safe, even though it is considered “off label”, but be aware that Ketamine has been used safely over the past 50 years.
The procedure for ketamine infusion is straightforward. You will receive an intravenous (IV) line started into a vein of your hand or arm so you can receive ketamine through this. You will have your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, respiration, and heart rhythm monitored during treatment under the supervision of Dr. Zaheer Aslam.
