Your Treatment: What to Expect at LIMA

Ketamine infusions at LIMA take place in private rooms, in an out-patient office setting. Patients sit in a comfortable reclining chair and the infusion takes about one hour depending on their needs and treatment. Patients generally stay another 15-30 minutes before leaving, but may stay until they feel comfortable enough to leave.

Patients are encouraged to be accompanied for at least the first visit. During the infusion, patients are also encouraged to listen to music they enjoy from their own playlists. Wi-Fi is available.

During the infusion, you will experience some dissociation, which is not hallucinations, but rather altered reality. Most patients find it pleasurable and non-threatening. If it does make you uncomfortable the infusion can be stopped, or medication is given which will end the thoughts within a minute. It is rare that this is necessary. By the time you leave the office, your mentation will be close to normal.

Some patients are able to return to work and carry on as an otherwise normal day, while others prefer to go home and take a short nap. The only restriction after leaving the office is no driving until the next day. You must have a designated driver when leaving the office after an infusion. Your improvement in mood will not be immediate. The earliest that you might expect to feel better is several hours after leaving the office.

If you have a favorable response to the first two infusions, a total of six is recommended within a twelve-day period. Thereafter, patients are placed in a maintenance program where they return when they feel it necessary for a single infusion booster. During the maintenance period, the duration of relief following the initial infusions and the first booster, and between subsequent single booster infusions, varies between patients.
