Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about ketamine treatment
How does ketamine treat mental health?
Research has shown ketamine to be highly effective in treating depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD, and OCD. Ketamine works by binding to various receptors in the brain to promote regrowth and connections between brain cells that help regulate one’s mood.
What are the common side effects?
The most common side effects are nausea and fatigue. We offer Zofran, a preventative anti-nausea medicine, to help offset any symptoms.
What will my dose be?
Your dose will be specific to you, it is based on your weight, comfort level and your experience with psychedelics. We may vary the dose as your treatment progresses according to your results and feedback.
Should I be concerned about any risks of addiction?
Ketamine itself has not been shown to have addictive properties. In fact, there is research to suggest that ketamine can be an effective treatment for overcoming addiction. If you have a history of substance abuse, it does not exclude you from receiving treatment. However, it’s important to disclose this to your clinician so they can develop the right treatment plan for you.
