– IV ketamine infusion therapy
Ketamine has a bit of stigma and baggage given its history. While you may think of it as a “party drug” from the 1990s, there is a growing amount of research that says it has some positive potential. The more research our major institutions conduct, the less stigma there will be around these drugs. And if they can help people with drug-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc, then why wouldn’t we put these to use in proper, clinical settings?
Ketamine IV infusion therapy is the most common form of ketamine treatment. The drug is administered directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous drip into the arm. During the treatment, the patient lies still in a calm setting. The effect is usually immediate and can last weeks.
This is primarily due to its stigma as a party drug. The truth is yes, ketamine is legal. In fact, it is only a Schedule III drug by the DEA. This puts it on the same level as Tylenol and codeine. So don’t let the baggage of this drug stop you from learning more about it. As always, ask your doctor if ketamine therapy is right for you.
