– Intravenous (IV) Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Depending on the nature of your pain and your responsiveness to initial sessions, treatment protocols are individually planned. A variety of medications can be used including lidocaine, ketamine, and magnesium. Infusion cocktails are prepared at the Florida Spine Institute so they can be tailored to each patient’s therapeutic needs. These medications are generally mixed with saline in an IV bag and infused slowly over several hours depending on the protocol and medications being used. Most often, a spectrum of treatments will be suggested daily for a period of a week or more. The time period for pain relief following one or more ketamine infusions cannot be foreseen.
The Florida Spine Institute’s goal is for patients to enjoy lasting relief that can be measured in weeks or months after their last treatment. Almost all patients who experience extended pain relief will need to have occasional booster infusions or to take low-dose intranasal ketamine at home.
