Nebulized Ketamine Q & A
What is nebulized ketamine?
Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that was initially used as an anesthetic during the Vietnam war. It’s also frequently used in veterinary medicine and abused as a party drug.
However, recent clinical studies show that in small doses, ketamine is an effective treatment for several traditionally hard to treat conditions like depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and migraines.
Charlotte Ketamine Center developed a nebulized form of ketamine therapy and is one of only two practices that offer this cost-effective option. You simply inhale a fine mist, much like you would with an asthma treatment.
Nebulized ketamine produces fewer side effects. However, patients at Charlotte Ketamine Center report symptom relief within 6-72 hours. Charlotte Ketamine Center provides customized treatment plans for every patient, but most have an initial course of 3-6 treatments and monthly follow-up treatments.
Nebulized ketamine is an outpatient therapy at Charlotte Ketamine Center. You inhale the ketamine mist and then rest under the observation of a clinical staff member. When any initial side effects have subsided, a friend or family member can drive you home. You may feel fatigued for the rest of the day.
What conditions improve with nebulized ketamine?
Charlotte Ketamine Center offers nebulized ketamine for a variety of conditions, including:
- Treatment-resistant depression
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Bipolar disorder
- Chronic headaches
These conditions are often challenging to treat. Everyone responds differently to treatment, and many people never find relief with conventional treatments. Charlotte Ketamine Center offers nebulized ketamine treatment as an alternative.
What are the benefits of nebulized ketamine?
Nebulized ketamine provides rapid, effective relief, both anecdotally and in clinical studies. It’s more affordable than ketamine infusions and nasal spray options as well.
When used under close medical supervision, ketamine is effective and safe. In fact, patients travel from out-of-state for the nebulized ketamine treatment at Charlotte Ketamine Center.
Am I a good candidate for nebulized ketamine?
If you’re in good health, aside from your depression, migraines, or other hard-to-treat condition, nebulized ketamine may be an excellent treatment option.
However, if you have a history of substance abuse, high blood pressure, or another vascular health issue, Charlotte Ketamine Center may recommend a different therapy.
