WILL KETAMINE WORK FOR ME?
HOW MANY KETAMINE INFUSIONS WILL I NEED?
For both psychiatric and chronic pain conditions, we recommend an initial series of 4-6 infusions over a 3 week period. Studies have shown that initial ketamine infusions are most effective within a short time frame. After the initial series of infusions, patients may need maintenance infusions monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually. Your provider will decide which schedule is best for your specific situation.

HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH KETAMINE INFUSIONS?
The first step in getting started with ketamine infusions at Flo Hydration & Wellness to request a free consultation. During this time, we will review your symptoms, diagnoses, and goals. Then, we will discuss treatments that you have tried in the past before determining whether or not you are a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy.
Once your intake forms are submitted, we will schedule your in-office consultation and your first ketamine infusion session.
Prior to your session, do not eat or drink pulpy juices for 6-hours. Once in the treatment room, we will apply monitors, set your IV, and start your infusion. The infusion will last about 40 minutes, and you will remain awake and alert throughout the entire process. However, if you are receiving treatment for chronic pain, your session may last up to 4 hours. Some patients choose to relax and listen to music whereas others converse with friends or family members.
You may experience a cooling sensation, light dizziness, nausea, or experience mild, non-threatening hallucinations during your session. If you do experience nausea, let your anesthesia provider know and they will administer an anti-nausea medication via IV.
After your session is over, we will monitor you for 30-minutes before releasing you into the care of a friend or family member. We ask that you do not drive or operate heavy machinery for 24-hours after your infusion. Any other side effects that you experience will wear off within 2-hours.
