IV Ketamine Q & A

What is IV ketamine?

IV ketamine, or ketamine infusion therapy, has been used as a medication for anesthesia during surgery and has successfully treated depression in the past ten years.

Ketamine is a medicine recently proven to be a breakthrough treatment for mood disorders. Research has shown that ketamine therapy relieves 80% of patients suffering from Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). This means that patients' depression has been resistant or not found results in other procedures used to treat depression.


Am I a good candidate for IV ketamine?

IV ketamine treatment may be right for you if you have been diagnosed by a mental health professional as suffering from a major depressive disorder such as Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). 

This requires having suffered at least one severe depressive episode and then not seeing improvement after treatment with various antidepressants. You may be prescribed Spravato therapy, IV ketamine, and other oral antidepressants.

You may also be a good candidate for IV ketamine if you experience chronic pain, OCD, PTSD, and other mental health disorders.

You aren't a good candidate for ketamine treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of hypertension, brain bleeding or aneurysm, raised intracranial or intraocular pressure, schizophrenia, psychosis, or current mania.


How does IV ketamine work?

At MGM Ketamine Center, the patient will undergo comprehensive screening to determine if IV ketamine treatment is appropriate. If so, it will be administered by a member of the team.

IV ketamine works by providing medication directly into your bloodstream, where it immediately begins to repair the stress induced damage in your brain's communication system.

Potential side effects from ketamine include dizziness, bad dreams, elevation in blood pressure, perceptual disturbances, confusion, euphoria, increased libido, and nausea. These side effects usually disappear 20 minutes after completion of the infusion, and ketamine treatment is generally well tolerated.

Ketamine infusion requires specialized monitoring and cannot be given in a typical office setting. The team is committed to ensuring that your treatment experience is safe, comfortable, and stress free.
