The Minnesota Ketamine Clinic offers ketamine therapy for patients looking to heal from a variety of issues. The clinic’s main focus is treating depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Minnesota Ketamine Clinic was opened in 2016 by Dr. Gregory Simelgor. His plan was to transfer his anesthesiology experience into the treatment of mental illness. By opening the clinic, he offers patients in Minnesota a safe and effective treatment option for their chronic mental illnesses.
Dr. Simelgor understands that ketamine for depression is relatively new, but with science-backed research, it has proven to be a breakthrough treatment. By addressing mental health issues with ketamine, Dr. Simelgor can help more people find relief from their struggles.
– Ketamine infusion therapy
Minnesota Ketamine Clinic will start with the infusion regimen of 0.5 mg/kg administered over 40 minutes. The dose may be adjusted for the subsequent treatments. The clinic suggests a total of 6 treatments. Every patient will be reassessed after two treatments to see if there is an improvement in the condition they are treating. The effects of ketamine usually subside after 4-6 weeks and “booster” treatments may become necessary.
Ketamine has a bit of stigma and baggage given its history. While you may think of it as a “party drug” from the 1990s, there is a growing amount of research that says it has some positive potential. The more research our major institutions conduct, the less stigma there will be around these drugs. And if they can help people with drug-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc, then why wouldn’t we put these to use in proper, clinical settings?
This is primarily due to its stigma as a party drug. The truth is yes, ketamine is legal. In fact, it is only a Schedule III drug by the DEA. This puts it on the same level as Tylenol and codeine. So don’t let the baggage of this drug stop you from learning more about it. As always, ask your doctor if ketamine therapy is right for you.
Ketamine IV infusion therapy is the most common form of ketamine treatment. The drug is administered directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous drip into the arm. During the treatment, the patient lies still in a calm setting. The effect is usually immediate and can last weeks.
