We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your infusion so we are ready to begin on time! The therapy generally takes an hour, and you’ll be very comfortable in our treatment rooms. Wear comfortable clothing, you will be sitting in an infusion massage chair during your treatment. You will have the option to listen to music if desired! We’ll develop an individualized treatment plan, but generally IV Ketamine infusions include 6-8 infusions over a month’s time.
We understand that most patients have never experienced ketamine before their infusion at NeuroMedici. During your infusion, you may feel some sensitivity to light and/or sound. Most patients use this time for deep relaxation and meditation. Allow your mind to wander without the worry of anxiety or intrusive thoughts.
The effects of ketamine are felt quickly; you’ll be aware of your surroundings yet won’t be able to carry on with normal daily functions, like having a normal conversation or standing up. You may experience feeling confused, dizzy, or nauseous. More often, patients have little to no side effective, and any effects will quickly subside. Patients will need someone to drive them home after the treatment.
