THERAPEUTICS | KETAMINE
Examples of conditions we treat
While being used as an anesthetic during the Vietnam War, it was discovered that service members who were given ketamine suffered lower rates of PTSD. It continues to be used extensively as an anesthetic in hospitals and has gained a stellar reputation for safety and minimal long-term side effects. Ketamine has gained acceptance as a successful off-label therapy for anxiety, depression, bipolar disease, PTSD, as well as for drug and alcohol addiction. It has shown stunning success and numerous studies support ketamine in treating these conditions.
What to expect: Come in, get an IV and relax while you have your infusion. You will need someone to give you a ride home and you should expect to not make important decisions, at least, for the rest of the day.
