What Is Ketamine IV Therapy?
Ketamine IV therapy at Pain Zero is a fantastic treatment option for PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Ketamine has a rather contentious history, but this is due to abusing it as a recreational drug. Under the supervision of our experienced team, this treatment may effectively reduce life-threatening depression and suicidal ideation. This is a minimally-invasive treatment that provides you with additional relief from signals of depression and anxiety. While selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), like Lexapro, increase your brain's serotonin levels, ketamine IV therapy addresses healing the brain instead. If more traditional depression treatment options have not had the success you hoped, contact our Central Ohio office to find out more about ketamine IV therapy at Pain Zero and move forward with healing.

What Is Ketamine IV Therapy Treatment Like?
Ketamine IV Therapy should be a closely monitored treatment plan approved by your provider at Pain Zero. When you arrive at our Central Ohio office, you will be escorted to a secluded treatment room for the administration of your ketamine treatment. Intravenous treatment options are safe and generally take anywhere from 30 — 45 minutes to administer. You will work with your provider to develop a customized treatment plan that closely monitors your psychological and behavioral improvement in conjunction with the treatment administered. Your treatment plan may take a couple of months before any improvements are noticed, so discuss your symptoms with your provider frequently to determine the efficacy of this treatment for managing your symptoms.
What Should I Expect After Ketamine IV Therapy?
After receiving ketamine IV therapy, you might feel a bit drowsy or disoriented. It's common for patients to experience temporary perceptual changes, like altered vision or hearing. Some may also feel euphoric or detached from their surroundings. Due to these effects, it's crucial to have someone available to drive you home from the treatment session at our Columbus, OH facility. For the rest of the day, avoid activities that require focus, such as operating machinery or making important decisions. Side effects, like nausea or headache, are possible but can usually be managed with over-the-counter remedies. Stay hydrated and rest as needed. Lastly, maintain open communication with your practitioner, at Pain Zero discussing any concerns or side effects experienced, to ensure optimal benefits and safety throughout your treatment journey.
