The Neurological Associates Interventional Group provides ketamine treatment to people with chronic pain and mood disorders. The team at the clinic is highly experienced and uses state-of-the-art technology to provide ketamine infusions for patients. Conditions they treat include depression, anxiety, and various chronic pain disorders.
The neurology center is led by Dr. Marisa Chang and Dr. Sheldon Jordan. The two have a well-rounded approach to care and realize that it takes more than one type of treatment to help patients heal once and for all. Together with their staff at Neurological Associates, the two doctors aim to help as many people as possible. Using the latest in research-driven innovation, Dr. Chang and Dr. Sheldon can provide ketamine therapy effectively so that patients can regain control over their health.
If receiving inpatient treatment, patients are required to stay inside the hospital for several days (around five) for ketamine infusions. Ketamine is given through an intravenous (IV) line and started with a 20mg dose of ketamine per hour, which is then increased to a maximum of 40mg of ketamine per hour.
Other medications may be used to treat nausea, vomiting, and headache throughout the procedure. Fatigue may be common and may be accompanied by transient periods of hallucinations. These symptoms will fade as the dose is tapered (lowered).
On the other hand, another option for giving ketamine is through outpatient administration. Patients are given 70mg to a maximum of 200mg daily for 10 days in tapered doses. Fatigue may also occur, but there are no reported long-term side effects for outpatient ketamine administration.
