– IV ketamine infusion therapy
Following a comprehensive mental and physical health evaluation, Nona Medical Arts Orlando 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 Orlando requires pain patients to be picked up inside the clinic by a responsible adult.
Those who have not been helped by conventional treatment strategies have another option with ketamine treatments at Nona Medical Arts Orlando. Research in the last 7-10 years has shown that ketamine infusions are effective for those suffering from treatment-resistant mental health conditions and chronic pain conditions. Either as an alternative to or a supplement to mainstream treatments, ketamine infusions offer an alternative path to healing for those who have lost hope.
