About The Treatment
Ketamine is an extremely safe anesthetic agent used off-label to treat various mental health issues. Ongoing research, from clinical trials to meta-analyses, demonstrates ketamine’s efficacy in relieving treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, anxiety, bipolar depression, OCD, and suicidality.
There are multiple routes to administer ketamine, including intravenous, intramuscular, subcutaneous, oral, and intranasal. At Voyage Healing, we currently offer intramuscular, subcutaneous, and oral Ketamine as lozenges. We plan to offer intravenous ketamine beginning in January of 2023. We will go over each treatment’s pros and cons and collaboratively tailor the treatment to best suit your diagnosis and preferences.
Conditions Ketamine Can Help Treat
Choosing the Right Infusion Method
Ultimately, choosing IV or IM ketamine infusions will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of symptoms, medical history, and individual preferences. Your healthcare provider will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for you.
It’s important to note that both IV and IM ketamine infusions are safe, effective treatments for various mental health conditions and chronic pain. Both have been shown to provide rapid relief from symptoms and have been used for many years in various settings.
