MAJOR DEPRESSION, BIPOLAR DISORDER, POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER
Most patients undergoing ketamine therapy for Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, or PTSD will require six treatments over two to three weeks initially, followed by periodic "boosters" of one infusion every three to five weeks for maintenance.
On the day of treatment, patients will need either a trusted family member or friend to drive them home and stay with them. All patients will have a history and physical exam performed. An IV will be started. During the infusion, patients are monitored continuously. Most infusions last 30-60 minutes.
