On the day of your scheduled infusion or SPRAVATO treatment, Shrink Savannah advises to refrain from eating or drinking within four (4) hours of your scheduled appointment. Water is fine to drink. Loose-fitting clothes are suggested for your comfort.
You will receive treatment in a private room. You may have a loved one or friend accompany you. A Shrink Savannah medical team member remains in the room with you throughout the treatment to ensure you are comfortable. As the ketamine is delivered at a low and controlled dosage, your blood pressure, pulse, and oxygen saturation are monitored. For your comfort, Shrink Savannah does have eye masks, ear plugs and blankets available.
For SPRAVATO treatments, there is a two-hour observation period for your safety. IV infusion patients have a minimal observation and recovery time period and are ready to leave the office soon after their treatment. You will not be able to drive for the rest of the day following a Ketamine infusion or SPRAVATO treatment. Please arrange for a trusted friend or family member to pick you up following your treatment. If you must use a ride-sharing service, Shrink Savannah recommends you have a friend or family member with you.
Following a Ketamine treatment, many people start to feel benefits within a few hours or the next morning. Some may take multiple treatments before the effects are experienced.
