Frequently Asked Questions

Ketamine is a medication that has been used safely for decades, for both human and veterinary anesthesia. It causes a state of dissociative anesthesia, where the patient feels detached from the environment and self.

It blocks NMDA receptors, which modulates the levels of the excitatory neurotransmitter Glutamate. When administered gradually as an intravenous infusion at low sub-anesthetic doses, it has been found to exert an anti-depressant effect with very low risks of adverse reactions.

It is also an extremely efficient medication at decreasing the opiate dose requirements of patients suffering from Chronic Pain Disorders, and it may be used as a multi-modal approach for treatment of these debilitating conditions.

Ketamine does have a potential for abuse and psychological dependence. It was abused recreationally during the 1990’s & 2000’s as a party drug referred to as “Special K”.

The potential for addiction and psychological dependence is extremely low though, when administered to the patient by a physician in a controlled medical setting and at judicious dosing intervals. Since patients do not have access to this medication outside of clinical settings, addiction and psychological dependence is more likely only when obtained illegally without physician supervision.

You may feel like you are “floating in the air” during the infusion and you may also experience irrational thoughts and delusional ideas that are self-limited.

Side effects listed from most to least common include:

  • Lightheartedness
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Visual disturbances
  • Auditory disturbances
  • Sensory disturbances
  • Vomiting
  • Increased Mucous Secretions (eyes, nose, mouth)
  • Palpitations
  • Increased blood pressure

These side effects are usually mild when Ketamine is given gradually as an Intravenous infusion and disappear shortly after the infusion stops. An anti-emetic may be used to prevent or treat nausea and vomiting as needed.
