What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is an anesthetic medication that was approved for medical use by The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1970. At therapeutic doses, ketamine produces shifts in consciousness that can help neurons rebuild lost connections, allowing individuals to view their own patterned behavior with a renewed clarity, broaden awareness, and suppress networks in the brain responsible for producing persistent and obstructive thoughts.Learn more

Frequently Asked Questions
Oral Ketamine (ODT)
Oral ketamine medication, also referred to as Ketamine ODT (Oral Dissolving Tablets), is the easiest and least complicated way to self-administer your at-home treatment. The bioavailability of ketamine through an oral dose is approximately 17%, and the psychoactive experience generally lasts between 45 to 90 minutes depending on your dose.
The ketamine-based nasal spray we prescribe is a racemic mixture of R-ketamine and S-ketamine. When administered nasally, the bioavailability of ketamine is 50%. When not being used, intranasal ketamine spray must be stored between 68°F and 77°F. A dose of intranasal ketamine can create a sedative effect that impacts the central nervous system (CNS). If you take any CNS depressants (such as benzodiazepines, opioids, or alcohol), you should discuss conflicts of medication with your TripSitter.Clinic physician
Side Effects and Reactions
Why isn’t ketamine used more often therapeutically? One reason is that in high, acute doses, ketamine can cause emergence reactions such as hallucination, vivid dreams, a sense of floating, delirium, and/or out-of-body experiences. However, research reflects that hallucinations, although potentially disturbing to some patients, are actually an indicator that the ketamine is beginning its effectiveness. To help moderate these side effects, patients are instructed to engage in their telemedicine sessions in a calm environment with minimal stimuli. An environment in which there are few pictures, colors, sounds, and smells may help reduce hallucinogenic effects. Patients are provided with additional instructions to create a safe and comfortable at-home environment. Because ketamine can cause drowsiness, patients are reminded not to drive a vehicle or operate heavy equipment for several hours following their treatment.
Preparing for Treatment
It is essential that you discuss with your physician any allergic reactions you have to any prescription medications, foods, and/or preservatives. Patients must also disclose if they are currently pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant while ketamine treatments are ongoing. Your physician will discuss the foregoing with you to make sure that ketamine does not create a conflict. Ketamine is generally well tolerated, but there are some prescription medications that can conflict with ketamine.
Ketamine May Not Be Right for You
If you have certain health conditions, ketamine therapy may not be suitable for you. Before issuing you a prescription, your TripSitter.Clinic physician will review with you your health history and lifestyle habits, including alcohol and tobacco use. If you have been diagnosed with, or suspect you have any of, the following symptoms or health conditions, you may not be eligible for ketamine therapy: allergic reaction to ketamine; aneurysmal vascular disease; arteriovenous malformation; intracerebral hemorrhage; cardiovascular problems or stroke; cerebrovascular disease; psychosis; schizophrenia; high blood pressure; hypertensive encephalopathy; or liver disease. Ketamine can cause certain side effects, including temporary drowsiness, confusion, or cognitive changes that can make it difficult to remember time, place, or personal identity. Patients who undergo ketamine therapy can experience ulcerative or interstitial cystitis and other bladder problems. Report any changes in your urine (cloudy or presence of blood) or if urination is painful or causes a burning sensation. Consult with your TripSitter.Clinic physician before taking any over-the-counter (OTC) medications at any timie during your ketamine treatment.
