Whether considering psychedelics treatment, or have general interest in information about psychedelic drugs, Indy Advanced’s staff serve as guides. It’s why the clinic is one of the best ketamine therapy clinics around.
– IV ketamine infusion therapy
On the day of your treatment, you should avoid all solid foods and milk for 6 hours before your Ketamine infusion. Clear liquids such as water, sodas, pulpless fruit juices, tea, and black coffee can be consumed up to 2 hours before treatment begins. You should absolutely avoid alcohol, sedatives, or the use of any illicit substances. Alcohol, sedatives, and illicit drugs are extremely dangerous when combined with ketamine.
The Ketamine will be infused intravenously slowly over 45 minutes. Initially, you may not experience any noticeable effects, but as the treatment progresses, you may experience a feeling of euphoria or “weightlessness.” Most patients describe mild symptoms of disconnection and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions, and identity, which are generally well tolerated. You will be monitored throughout the treatment and Indy Advanced Therapeutics is prepared to treat any unpleasant side effects during the therapy.
Within 15 minutes prior to completing the treatment, you will begin to regain your senses and your cognition will return to normal.
Typically, the effects of a single dose of Ketamine can last up to two weeks. An average treatment course consists of a total of six infusions, and it is recommended that the infusions are completed within a 3 week period to maximize the effects of Ketamine.
At the completion of a series of six treatments, some people remain asymptomatic for several months. Booster infusions may also be a treatment option, which can be provided monthly or a few times per year as deemed appropriate by the physician.
