A ketamine infusion occurs at an in-office visit after an initial in-person consultation to determine if the treatment is right for you. Helpful for treatment resistant depression and other mental health conditions, it involves intravenous administration of a medication while under the careful supervision of an anesthesia provider.
An appointment starts with a brief wellness check-in, vital sign check, and IV start. We monitor your vital signs throughout the infusion, which for most people lasts for 50 minutes. During the infusion you may experience strange sensations including depersonalization, loss of track of time or context, or an unusual feeling of euphoria. After the infusion, it takes about 15 minutes to feel normal and be safe to go home with your driver.
