Ketamine in Ontario and what to expect

How do I get started?

Give us a call to set-up an appointment for a medical evaluation.  Those who are suffering from depression that hasn't responded to at least 2 adequate trials of an anti-depressant are excellent candidates for Ketamine.  Also those with post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, chronic pain syndromes can also greatly benefit from Ketamine infusions.

Is there paperwork to complete?

Yes.  You will complete a comprehensive intake form along with providing us with a copy of your most recent labs, psychiatric and medical records or other documents to ensure a safe procedure.

Once I've complete the intake what happens next?

We will set-up your first infusion appointment.  Please allow at least 60-90 minutes for this visit.   Usually there are 6 infusions over 2 weeks that are recommended for depression and pain control.   

How does the infusion feel?

Ketamine is an hallucinogenic medication and it's also used commercially as an anesthetic.  We use it at sub-anesthetic dosages for our depression and pain protocols.  You may experience hallucinations and a deep sense of "getting in touch with your feelings.  You will be monitored by our nursing and medical staff throughout.  Usually after the first 2 infusions you and Dr. Scurry will know if Ketamine will be of benefit for you.

Are there any contraindications to Ketamine?

Yes.  If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure or heart problems you would not be a candidate for Ketamine.  Also those who are pregnant or nursing are not candidates for Ketamine.  Lastly, we don't treat those under 18 years old.

Are there any other precautions?

It's not recommended to drive driectly after the infusion visit.  So, you will need a driver or the use of a caregiver.  If you need a caregiver referral please let us know.  Also, it's not recommended to sign any legal documents until you know how you will feel.
