DuPage Psychiatric Care PLLC specializes in ketamine infusion treatments at its Hinsdale location. Our team is dedicated to finding solutions that work for each patient’s specific concerns and goals.
What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic commonly used in children. It was approved by the FDA in 1970 for use as an anesthetic. More recently, ketamine's anti-depressive and anti-suicidal properties have sparked interest in its use for various mental health concerns. Ketamine provides rapid-acting relief with minimal side effects for those looking for relief from mental health disorders.
Ketamine (IV) Infusion enters circulation (100%) and remains the best route of administration compared to any other routes.
Am I a good candidate?
Ketamine infusion therapy can be extremely effective for those who have not found relief for their depression from traditional methods. Ketamine infusions are almost always prescribed for patients who have tried multiple types of medication and therapy but still struggle with depression symptoms.
Ketamine infusion therapy can also be effective for patients suffering from suicidal ideations, anxiety, PTSD, and even chronic pain.
What to expect:
Unlike other ketamine infusion centers, where you are on your own during the infusion, our patients are never left alone. We stay with you throughout treatment and make adjustments when necessary, ensuring maximum results and comfortability.
Patients receiving ketamine infusion therapy for the first time start with the standard dose of 6 treatments in 2-3 weeks which has shown improved durability of effect. While infusions only last about 30 minutes, patients can expect to be in the clinic 2.5-3 hours to relax and recover. You may feel dizzy, nauseous, or just "out of it" after an infusion - you won't be able to drive yourself home. After the initial course of treatment, many require maintenance treatments to maintain results.
