Objective: Subanesthetic ketamine doses have been shown to have rapid yet transient antidepressant effects in patients with treatment-resistant depression, which may be prolonged by repeated administration.

Keeping our clients symptom-free does require booster infusions. Boosters are recommended at intervals of 4-6 weeks following completion of your first six infusions. Lozenges/nasal spray may be prescribed for at home use which increase the longevity of your infusions, stretching out the time between infusions to 2 months or more.
The protocol for ketamine infusion therapy for depression involves a series of infusions administered over the course of several weeks.
While front-loading the infusions in this way does raise the cost, studies have shown that following this protocol increases the likelihood of remission, and the duration of the anti-dressive effects of the ketamine.
After completing the six induction infusions as per the protocol, we provide you with a prescription for ketamine lozenges. These lozenges can be used to lengthen the time between future infusions. The purpose of this is to maintain the therapeutic effect of ketamine treatment while reducing the need for frequent infusions. The prescription will include instructions on how to use the lozenges, including the dosage and frequency. It is important to follow these instructions carefully, communicate with your provider about any concerns or questions you may have.
Ketamine infusions are a medical treatment that involves the administration of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, through an intravenous (IV) line. The exact mechanism of how ketamine works to treat depression and other mental health conditions is not fully understood, but it is believed to affect the glutamate system in the brain, leading to increased neural plasticity and the formation of new neural connections.
Ketamine infusions have been shown to be effective in treating treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They may also be effective in reducing suicidal ideation and chronic pain. However, ketamine infusions are not a first-line treatment option and are typically reserved for those who have not responded to other treatments.
The most common side effects of ketamine infusions include nausea, dizziness, and dissociation. Some people may also experience changes in blood pressure and heart rate, which can be monitored during the infusion.
$339 per infusion when purchased in a pack of 10, cost of all 10 infusions is due at the time of scheduling, additional payment plans available. $449 per session, when purchasing a single session.
Unlike traditional antidepressants which work neurotransmitters like serotonin, ketamine works to increase the production of glutamate. Low levels of glutamate have been shown to cause depression. With increased levels of glutamate the brain is able to grow new synaptic connections and repair damaged ones.
70-80% of patients will respond to ketamine infusions with one study showing a remarkable 82% response. Traditional medications have a 30-40% response rate.

After induction phase (initial six infusions) some people then drop to once a month for a few months. Many others are able to use the ketamine lozenges we prescribe to stretch that one month in three or more months! Still others come in when they sense they need to, could be once a year, or every six months, it varies for everyone.
Ketamine infusions provide a controlled and monitored dose of ketamine which can be customized for your exact weight and tolerance. The nasal spray comes in just two strengths whether your a 130 lbs. college student, or a 260 lbs. NFL player. Due to most of active ingredient being broken down in the gut, orals don't have the kick required initially to deal with the depression, which is why we use them for maintenance only, they work well to extend the intervals between future infusions.
