Maintenance infusions are recommended once per month after your initial series of six infusions. We recommended maintenance infusions for one year post treatment.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Wear loose, comfortable clothing and arrive at your appointment in a good mental state with an open mind. Ketamine may cause nausea, so patients are pre-treated with (Zofran) prior to infusion. Plan to eat something light at least two hours prior to your infusion, but avoid a large meal right before your visit.


What to Expect

Most PTSD patients find the ketamine infusion experience to be pleasant. Our treatment rooms are calming, safe, and private spaces that bring peace of mind, even before treatment has begun. Upon check in, we will escort you to a room and place cardiac monitors on your chest. You will be provided with a comforting (and clean) blanket along with noise-cancelling headphones to wear during treatment.

Patients typically do not go to sleep with this dose of ketamine, however you will experience a dream-like state (where you can actually control your dream). The infusion for PTSD lasts approximately 45-minutes, although we encourage you to set aside 90-minutes to cover your entire appointment. This leaves room for preparation and recovery.

Most of the medicine’s effects wear off within minutes of the infusion, but you may feel sleepier than usual for a few hours following your visit. It’s usually a good idea to have someone meet you afterwards. Ketamine is generally well-tolerated, but if any side effects are encountered, such as visual disturbances or elevated blood pressure, our staff will quickly give IV medication to counteract them.
