How many Ketamine infusion treatments will I need?
The first four Ketamine Infusions determine whether or not you respond well to this medication. Most people notice a change after the first or second infusion. If you aren’t experiencing relief, we may increase the dose or length of the treatment. If after four treatments you are in the 20% of patients who do not experience relief from symptoms, Ketamine may not be a good treatment for you.
For the majority of our patients, Ketamine Infusions result in a marked reduction in symptoms. If you do respond well, then you’ll receive two additional weekly treatments, for a total of six infusions. After that point we recommend maintenance infusions at 4, 6 or 8 week intervals.
