Will ketamine work for me? Am I a candidate for ketamine therapy treatment?
You are a candidate for ketamine therapy if you have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar depression, or a neuropathic chronic pain syndrome. You do not need to be on antidepressant medications in order to start treatment and ketamine does not interfere or interact with your currently prescribed medications. We will do a full health assessment and have you fill out a health questionnaire as well as a mood questionnaire to evaluate your current state during your consultation. We may ask you to see a cardiologist for an evaluation if it is determined you have a heart condition or untreated high blood pressure. Ketamine raises blood pressure and heart rate slightly during treatment, which may be excessive for those who have untreated blood pressure issues. It is not mandatory to be in therapy prior to beginning ketamine infusions. However, we recommend you meet with our licensed therapist during your infusion series to help integrate the experience and learn new mental habits to sustain the positive effects of ketamine therapy.
