– IV ketamine infusion therapy
Following a comprehensive mental and physical health evaluation, Nona Medical Arts Merritt Island begins with three consecutive daily infusions in the first week to see if Ketamine is effective for you. IV Ketamine will be slowly increased during these 4-hour infusions. If there is no response during the first week, the clinic generally stops further treatment. If ketamine does improve your symptoms, a second week of three consecutive daily infusions will be performed. That is a total of 6 infusions for one full series. Results can be seen very quickly, in as little as one or two treatments, but are often not seen until after several treatments.
During an infusion, most patients may have mild dissociative experience, with increased sensitivity to light and sound and an altered perception of time and color. Most patients tolerate these side effects, however in the rare case these side effects become unpleasant, Dr. Gayles can use sedative medication (midazolam) to alleviate symptoms. Once the infusion is complete, the dissociative effects of the drug rapidly dissipate and are often mostly gone within 60-90 minutes. There are no delayed “flashbacks” and aside from being tired or fatigued, most feel much like themselves. Nona Medical Arts Merritt Island requires pain patients to be picked up inside the clinic by a responsible adult.
