Are You a Good Candidate for Ketamine?
Ketamine infusion therapy has been used for treating mood disorders and chronic pain for over 20 years with excellent results. Over 75% of patients have life-changing benefits from undergoing ketamine treatment for CRPS, OCD, depression, anxiety, PTSD and other mood disorders and chronic pain conditions. However, everyone may not be right for ketamine therapy. If you want to determine if you are a good candidate for ketamine, our pain specialists at CLEAR Wellness Group in Chicago can help.
Your first visit to discuss ketamine at CLEAR Wellness Group will be with Dr. Trivedi for an initial consultation. During this visit, we will spend time going through your medical history, medications and symptoms to help determine if IV ketamine treatment is right for you. We walk you through the risks, benefits and potential alternatives while we develop an individualized treatment plan together. Your consultation will be billed to insurance.
What to Expect During Your Initial Consultation
Patients will arrive for a first consult where Dr. Trivedi can help determine if you will be a good candidate for ketamine treatment. We will discuss:
- Your past medical history, medications and treatments
- The risks/benefits and potential alternatives
- Any questions you may have
If the treatment is a good fit for you, you will undergo a series of six infusions over the course of two weeks, each lasting about an hour. Before and after each infusion, you will have a brief consultation with the doctor to discuss how well the treatment is working and what to expect next.
After the initial six infusions, most patients will remain symptom-free for approximately 4-6 weeks. After this time, patients will return every 4-6 weeks for a booster infusion.
