What is ketamine?

Ketamine is a commercially available medication widely used in surgical anesthesia. It was approved by the FDA in 1970. Ketamine is a synthetic product.

How ketamine work?

At New Horizon Clinics, Ketamine is administered via IV infusion. Ketamine is found to be effective in treating depression, pain, and many other conditions. Low doses of ketamine infused over 1-2 hours may provide relief lasting for weeks to months after treatment .

The course of treatment varies depending on condition. For mental health conditions, an induction series of six infusions over 5 weeks, followed by monthly boosters is standard. For chronic pain conditions, the induction is 3 infusions, followed by boosters as needed.

Although still not completely defined, it is believed Ketamine likely targets the NMDA receptors in the brain and, in binding to these receptors, ketamine produces an increased amount of glutamate in the brain. Glutamate then activates the AMPA receptor which, with these two combined, an individual’s mood, thought pattern, thought process, and overall mental state is impacted. Ketamine may also reduce inflammation and improve mood disorders as well as physical discomfort. Ketamine may also remap and stimulate growth of nerve elements for long-term relief of clinical depression.

How long is ketamine in your system?

The effects of Ketamine may last anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes. When administered via IV Ketamine Therapy, ketamine is metabolized rapidly within the liver. Ketamine has a half-life of 2.5 hours in adults, which means after 2.5 hours, half the dosage of ketamine will still be in your system. Based on this science, most of the ketamine should be out of an adult’s system in about 10-12.5 hours. Patients are typically advised to avoid driving for 24 hours after treatment.

How long do the effects of ketamine last?

The immediate effects of Ketamine when injected intravenously may last anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes. However, due to the response of the nerves to Ketamine, many experience relief for weeks to months after the initial induction series. Most patients will require monthly or bi-monthly booster infusions to maintain the best effect of treatment.

How does ketamine affect the brain?

Ketamine likely targets the NMDA receptors in the brain and, in binding to these receptors, ketamine produces an increased amount of glutamate in the brain. Glutamate then activates the AMPA receptor which, with these two combined, an individual’s mood, thought pattern, thought process, and overall mental state is impacted. Ketamine may also reduce inflammation and improve mood disorders as well as physical discomfort. Ketamine may also remap and stimulate growth of nerve elements for long-term relief of clinical depression.
