Ketamine therapy in Omaha, Nebraska

What is ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine is FDA approved as an anesthetic agent, and has been used in this way for decades. More recently it has been studied for treatment of mental health conditions including depression and PTSD. Ketamine is thought to reset and re-establish connections within the brain and rapidly relieve suicidal thoughts.

Ketamine IV therapy can help with:

  • Major Depression Disorder (MDD)
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic treatment resistant depression
  • Suicidal ideations
  • Chronic neuropathic pain*

How does ketamine therapy work?

We at SOMA see ketamine IV therapy as an adjunct to other therapies for mental health conditions. We will work closely with your therapist and/or psychiatrist to optimize your mental well-being. Our approach uses a low dose of ketamine through a series of intravenous (IV) infusions, resulting in treatment backed by research and consensus guidelines.

What to expect.

We will do an initial consultation to review your medications, previous medical history and psychiatric history to determine your appropriateness for ketamine treatment. At this time we can address any questions or concerns that you may have. We may also request to do basic blood work or have you bring a copy of your most recent results to review at this time.

We will bring you into a private calm and relaxing environment to administer the ketamine. You are welcome to bring with you any, “comfort items,” such as a special blanket or music. You will be monitored periodically throughout your infusion by a medical professional. We want you awake throughout your infusion, but in a relaxed state to aid in the healing process. You are welcome to bring someone with you to sit with you during your infusion treatment.

Studies support the use of multiple infusions for the best results. While some patients may feel improvement in symptoms after only 1 infusion, for most the results are not instant. Here at SOMA, our regimen includes 6 treatment sessions over a 2-3 week time span. Typically after this initial set of treatments, patients will need booster sessions after a period of time. While everyone is different, It is important to remember that many mental health conditions are chronic, and as such ketamine is considered a treatment, not a cure.

We do not let you drive home after your ketamine infusion. We also recommend against operating heavy machinery, working, making important decisions, caring for small children, or participating in strenuous activities for at least the rest of the day following your infusion. Our staff will make sure you are ready and safe after your infusion before leaving.

Ketamine is a dissociative drug and can experience feelings of being “disconnected” or in a dream. Other common side effects include nausea, vomiting, heightened perceptions, fatigue afterwards and a rise in blood pressure and heart rate. These side effects usually disappear 20 minutes after completion of the infusion.

Our ketamine infusions run over an hour, but can take up to 2 hours to allow for time to recuperate after the infusion.

Typically we recommend continuing your medications as prescribed. There are very few medicines that cannot be taken in combination with ketamine. This will all be discussed in the consultation prior to any ketamine infusions
