Is Ketamine treatment safe?

Ketamine was approved for use in the United States in 1970 after its discovery in 1962. During the Vietnam War, surgeons extensively used ketamine as anesthesia for surgery because of its safety. World Health Organization included it in its List of Essential Medicines because it is the most effective yet the safest. It is even available as a generic drug.

What chronic pain conditions could Ketamine Infusions treat?

Ketamine has been used as a safer alternative to other anesthetics since the 1960s. Today, with the advancement of medicines, pain specialists now use ketamine as a safe and effective treatment option for chronic pain caused by:

  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Cancer
  • Phantom pain
  • Postherpetic neuralgia
  • Spinal injury
  • Sickle cell disease, and
  • Fibromyalgia

Chronic pain doctors prescribe ketamine infusion when medication and nonpharmacological interventions do not work to give patients pain relief. It could relieve medication-resistant chronic pain syndromes, precisely conditions that are neuropathic like CRPS-1, neuropathic pain from peripheral nerve damage, and postherpetic neuralgia.

What are the benefits of Ketamine infusion?

Ketamine is an anesthetic that stimulates neuron growth within the brain.
Aside from chronic pain relief, the treatment has been proven to safely and effectively treat mood swings and chronic pain disorders through inhibiting N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Blocking the NMDA receptors allow ketamine to bring pain relief. Some research showed that ketamine resets the hyper-sensitized pain receptors in the nervous system to give that effect.
Patients who have tried ketamine treatment-experienced deep relaxation while remaining aware of the surroundings.

How is ketamine given?
At our pain management clinic, we administer low levels of ketamine in a controlled environment through infusion into a vein through an IV drip system.
We only use FDA-approved doses and rest assured that our medical experts will closely monitor you to make sure that you are relaxed and comfortable.

Ketamine usually takes effect within five minutes after it was given and should last for up to approximately 25 minutes.
Our trained pain doctor will need to ask you relevant questions such as height, weight, age, and medical history as part of your treatment assessment.

What are the side effects of ketamine infusion?

Rest assured that our ketamine treatment for chronic pain relief is safe and does not have any long-lasting related side effects.
Our doctor will explain to you all possible side effects before your treatment begins so you can prepare yourself. Some patients may experience a feeling of sensitivity to lights or sounds, but it would quickly subside once the procedure is done. Others may experience dizziness, fatigue, nausea, or disassociation, so it is essential to have someone to accompany you home safely.
