Chicago, Illinois -
IV Solution & Ketamine Centers of Chicago has revealed that they are offering ketamine, an FDA-approved medication, as treatment for chronic pain syndromes, fibromyalgia, major depression, and other related illnesses. Chronic pain syndrome is that condition when a person has symptoms beyond pain alone, such as anxiety and depression, which interfere with their having a good quality of life. Ketamine is a medication that was synthesized in 1962 and was approved by the FDA for use as an anesthetic drug in 1970. It acts as a blocker of the cellular NMDA receptor, which is a neural receptor for glutamate that has been shown play an important role in the mentioned illnesses.
Although ketamine has been abused by some people, it is a very safe medication when used for anesthesia or as treatment for chronic pain and depression just as they do at IV Solution & Ketamine Centers of Chicago. The dosage that they use for the treatment of chronic pain and depression is much lower compared to the dosage for anesthesia. In addition, patients are closely monitored during the 45-minute infusion session. Most of the patients have indicated that they felt very relaxed and free during the process and the effects wear off after about an hour. They will also carefully evaluate the patient’s medical history and medication usage before the treatment and will consult with the patient’s primary care doctor or mental health service provider whenever needed.
With regards to side effects, these are minimal when using low dose ketamine infusions. These may include mild nausea, drowsiness, and higher blood pressure but these only last for approximately one or two hours. They will usually administer medication to prevent nausea. Less common side effects include some agitation and vivid dreams but these can be controlled by making adjustments to the dosage. Many patients aren’t bothered by the relaxed and free feeling that they experience during the session. And there is no indication that the ketamine infusion at low doses can lead to addiction or dependence.
