The Optimum Ketamine Center staff, providing ketamine infusions from Lombard, IL, understand that living with depression can make “every turn in life difficult.” With a 50-year track record of safety as an emergency anesthetic, ketamine is now understood to have a profound effect on the ability of the brain to heal from the damage of treatment resistant and/or chronic health conditions.
Ketamine also produces a marked decrease in suicidal ideations, sometimes after only one treatment. For some of the millions of Americans who suffer from depression, mainstream oral medications simply do not offer the relief that is needed to live a happy and productive life. IV ketamine infusion at the Optimum Ketamine Center is research-driven alternative with a 70 percent success rate under laboratory conditions.
With a combined 20 years of experience, Optimum Ketamine Center co-founders Dr. June Lee and Dr. Joseph Belmonte combine their expertise in the areas of anesthesiology and interventional pain medicine to provide safe and reliable treatment plans for each individual client.
The two doctors bring an impressive array of credentials and qualifications to the clinic, all of which combine with the professional and comfortable environment to create a welcoming and productive experience for all. Treatment-resistant conditions can keep individuals from achieving happiness and fulfillment in their lives despite medication and therapy.
The Optimum Ketamine Center ketamine infusions provide another choice of medication for sufferers and their caregiving team.
Candidates for ketamine infusion can expect to undergo an initial program of six infusions over the course of three weeks. This follows a thorough medical screening beforehand, taking into account all pre-existing conditions and medications.
Ketamine is administered through an IV catheter, and patient vitals are monitored throughout the process by Optimum Ketamine Center staff throughout. Patients often feel sensations of floating or dizziness during infusion, but these side effects dissipate soon after the treatment ends.
In laboratory settings, ketamine shows a 70-75 percent effectiveness in mitigating the difficulties associated with treatment-resistant mental health conditions. Treatment-resistant conditions are those that persist even when a patient is following a strict medication and therapy regime.
IV ketamine infusions at Optimum Ketamine Center provide an alternate medication, one that, in conjunction with mainstream therapies, has the potential to to offer rapid and significant positive changes in one’s quality of life.
