Ketamine treatments in Fredericksburg, VA
Ketamine’s use as a treatment for depression began in the early part of the century and has since been researched extensively. As ketamine treatments gain more traction in the medical community, more studies are conducted to help us understand what makes this drug such a powerful antidepressant and pain management option for disorders such as chronic pain, OCD, PTSD and more. iLamai Medical Spa and Wellness Center specializes in ketamine treatments in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
What to expect
Ketamine has been used for decades as a surgical anesthetic and pain reliever. Ketamine acts on your NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptors and stimulates glutamate activity. Glutamate is a neurotransmitter that’s key to regulating your mood.
Ketamine works quickly to effectively treat conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, suicidal ideation, and various chronic pain issues that are resistant to traditional treatments
At iLamai Medical Spa and Wellness Center, we deliver ketamine with a nasal spray or through intravenous (IV) infusion. We calculate the dose so your infusion therapy provides the beneficial effects of ketamine while eliminating the general anesthetic qualities necessary for surgery.
Prior to ketamine treatments
Before you schedule your ketamine infusion therapy, we carefully evaluate your physical health and conduct a thorough review of your medical history.
We discuss, in detail, ketamine, your expectations for therapy, and any previous treatments you’ve undergone for your pain, depression, migraines, or whatever condition with which you’re struggling.
At your ketamine infusion
Your ketamine treatment is delivered in a private and pleasant setting.
Your Physician will place an IV in your vein and the infusion begins. You feel a prick during the IV insertion, but otherwise, the treatment is painless. You simply sit back and relax as the ketamine drips into your body.
When dosed appropriately, ketamine can immediately lift your mood, but it doesn’t provide the “high” you may experience with opioids or other drugs. Ketamine can actually mellow you out and sedate you slightly. Generally, you can expect to remain relaxed yet awake throughout the infusion.
In the 30 minutes following treatment, you remain in our office so we can check your vitals and reaction to the ketamine.
