What Is a Ketamine Infusion?

Ketamine infusion treatment is a promising new approach for mental health and chronic pain conditions that has gained popularity in recent years. Unlike conventional antidepressants and pain medications, ketamine IV therapy works by targeting the brain’s N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors.

Advantages of Ketamine Infusions

Ketamine infusion therapy is a treatment designed to enhance communication between brain cells and promote the growth of new brain cells. It has been proven effective for many individuals who have not found relief from traditional methods. Our treatment is comfortable, and convenient, and has shown promising results.

Immediate Results

Unlike traditional antidepressants, which may take weeks or even months to produce noticeable effects, ketamine IV therapy can provide near-immediate results.

How Ketamine IV Therapy Works

The Ketamine infusion treatment involves administering the medication directly into the patient’s bloodstream through an IV drip. The dosage of Ketamine is personalized for each patient based on their body weight, medical history, and treatment requirements.

Deciding On the Right Provider

If you are considering ketamine therapy as a treatment option, it’s essential to choose a professional and knowledgeable provider. At Bespoke Treatment, we offer personalized care and attention to each of our patients, ensuring that their specific needs and goals are addressed.

What Is Ketamine?

Ketamine triggers N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the brain, affecting pain, mood, and overall emotional state. While there are various mechanisms of action in mood disorders, ketamine therapy generally works to repair damaged nerve cells associated with conditions like depression and PTSD.

How does ketamine treatment work?  

Ketamine therapy operates differently from antidepressants. While selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), conventional antidepressants, focus on regulating the hormone serotonin, ketamine affects and stimulates the NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor, which releases the brain’s most potent chemical carrier: glutamate.

This rise in glutamate levels strengthens and restores vital neural connections and pathways in brain areas damaged by depression. Consequently, this restoration brings about positive changes in brain circuitry, leading to improved cognitive processing.

Low doses of ketamine infusions can significantly reduce symptoms within hours to days. Ketamine IV infusion has a more substantial effect on glutamate levels and penetrates brain cells more than antidepressants.

What Conditions Can Be Improved With Ketamine Treatment?

Ketamine IV therapy is often recommended for individuals who have tried multiple medications without significant symptom relief. In addition to its primary use in treating schizophrenia, ketamine IV therapy shows promise in reducing psychiatric comorbidities, suicidal ideation, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain. This treatment offers hope for individuals seeking transformative approaches to improve their well-being and quality of life.

Tips and Tricks for Ketamine Infusions

You’ve taken the first step by deciding to seek ketamine IV therapy for your mental health. Here are a few things you can do to enhance your experience:

Reduce The Stress 

Avoid any stressful activities, such as reading or watching the news, before treatment. You want to be in the best mood possible.

Find A Good Playlist.

Choose relaxing music without lyrics to help you relax and set the tone for your experience. Songs without lyrics are recommended, as lyrics can be too distracting.


If you have a meditative tendency, consider meditating before starting your ketamine infusion to help calm your mind and set a relaxed mood.

Integrate With Therapy

Before your treatment, take some time to think about your expectations. Discussing them with your therapist beforehand can help you better manage your experience.

What Should I Expect During Ketamine Treatment?

It’s important to note that ketamine therapy can cause some initial and temporary side effects, such as dizziness, floating feelings, or slight hallucinations. However, any discomfort you experience will be treated promptly with preventive measures. Once your treatment is complete and it’s deemed safe for you to leave, it’s crucial to have a trusted friend or family member with you. While you may feel slightly tired initially, any lingering fatigue typically disappears by the following morning, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
