Each treatment will vary slightly on the delivery method. However, most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately after a treatment session, although some people may experience side effects such as dizziness, nausea, or changes in blood pressure.
During ketamine treatment in California, you will be seated in a comfortable chair or reclined on a bed. The medication will be administered through one of the following methods: nasal, IV, orally, or intramuscular. You will be closely monitored by a healthcare provider during the treatment, which typically lasts about 40-60 minutes.
During the treatment, you may feel a warm sensation throughout your body and a sense of relaxation. Some people also report feeling detachment from their body or a dreamlike state. These effects are generally temporary and will resolve after the treatment is completed.
