Ketamine Infusion Therapy Q & A

What is ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine is a powerful and safe anesthetic that, in recent years, has been identified as an alternative treatment for other conditions, including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and migraines. 

While ketamine was provided as an IV for anesthetic purposes, today, Dr. Lusko offers ketamine IV infusions, delivering customized doses of the medicine for therapeutic purposes. 

What conditions benefit from ketamine infusion therapy?

At Ketamine Integrative Medicine, Dr. Lusko uses ketamine infusion therapy to restore your quality of life by effectively relieving mental health and pain symptoms that interfere with your wellness. 

For example, some of the conditions she treats with ketamine infusion therapy include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Substance abuse disorders
  • Migraines
  • Chronic pain

If you have a condition that hasn’t responded to traditional treatment, contact Ketamine Integrative Medicine to find out if ketamine is right for you.

Why should I consider ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine often delivers lasting relief when other traditional treatments have failed. It’s safe when used under the direction of a physician and can restore your quality of life. 

Ketamine Integrative Medicine is the only ketamine clinic in Arizona that offers oral ketamine and esketamine nasal spray treatments as well as ketamine infusions. 

Additionally, at Ketamine Integrative Medicine, you meet with Dr. Lusko, a board-certified physician, while nurse practitioners run many other ketamine clinics. 

Ketamine Integrative Medicine also offers competitive pricing with mood infusions starting at $350. They offer evening and weekend hours by appointment. When possible, they offer same-day appointments for your convenience. 

What happens during ketamine infusion therapy?

During your ketamine infusion session, you relax in a comfortable chair while Dr. Lusko or another member of her team prepare your infusion and IV. Your treatment could last from 45 minutes up to five hours, depending on your condition. 

For example, ketamine infusions for chronic pain and migraines typically last for several hours, while infusions for depression and anxiety usually require 45 minutes. Most patients have a series of treatments for optimal results. 

During your infusion, you may have floating or tingling sensations. Some patients also experience mild hallucinations. After your infusion is complete, you stay in the office under observation for at least an hour. 

When Dr. Lusko releases you, you need a friend or family member to drive you home. You may want to relax for the rest of the day.
