The Ketamine Infusion takes about 4 hours, although the actual IV infusion is about 3 hours. You’ll be with your team for 10-20 minutes before the appointment as they explain the treatment and address questions. The Ketamine begins to take effect about 5 minutes after the start of the IV infusion. Patients often report feeling calm, relaxed, euphoric, and sometimes that their mind is fully engaged but appears to be sleeping. The dissociation is described as the separation of the brain and body. The effects of Ketamine wear off within 15-30 minutes after the infusion. Overall, the experience should be very pleasant. Sedation is optional, and a CRNA will supervise you during your appointment.
Integrated Pain Consultants delivers Ketamine Infusions to patients over a period of time. The first phase is the “Stabilization” phase which consists of three total IV treatments. It is recommended that there is at least one day between treatments, with a maximum of five days. The stabilization period is designed to build on the previous treatment to reach higher Ketamine doses and is timed so that patients overcome any slight tolerance to medication and increase pain-relieving properties. Clinical evidence shows a higher level of Ketamine translates to a reduction in pain experienced. The “Maintenance” phase follows the initial stabilization phase and begins anywhere from six days, and up to thirty days after the stabilization cycle ends. How the patient responds to the initial treatment will determine how often they receive maintenance treatment.
