Has Anyone Heard Of Ketamine Infusions For Pain And Depression?

Has Anyone Heard Of Ketamine Infusions For Pain And Depression?

I went to my pain doctor today and asked about a lidocaine infusion. He said they don’t do them but they just started ketamine infusions. I haven’t heard of this treatment. Has anyone? Gentle hugs.

I am confused by this new information.

That is a pretty serious treatment. This is to be used when no other treatment works. For depression and pain. It does not have a good track record, before using it in this manner. And not FDA approved either.

I had Ketamine infusions for a period of time. They worked not too bad at the beginning but after awhile had no effect on me.

Worth a try if you can afford it. Even a brief period with some relief is better then none.

Good luck.

Yes! I know someone who has received them. At first they saw good results, then they were unable to continue due to cost.
My doctor didn’t recommend them for me since it is not FDA approved.
