Ask the Doctors

Ketamine is not a new medication. It has been around for many years, but was used primarily as an anesthestic drug. Ketamine is an NMDA receptor blocker. It works differently from narcotics and antidepressants. The positive ketamine effects continue to work even after the infusion.

For depression, you must continue to take your current antidepressants. If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, seizures, epilepsy, angina, or heart disease, please let the team at Southwest Pain Management know because ketamine may be contraindicated.  For depression and PTSD, ketamine works by allowing new connections to form in your brain. The positive effects of Ketamine continue to work even after the infusion.

For painful conditions, ketamine can “reset” the central nervous system, which includes the spinal cord and brain. After exposure to pain, especially chronic pain, your nerves, your spinal cord, and even your brain “change” to become more susceptible to pain. Ketamine helps reverse this process, and has been shown to help even when other medications and treatments have failed.
Ketamine is recommended to be given at least twice a week during the 1st month. After a month, the team at Southwest Pain may be able to reduce the frequency of infusions to once a week and later to once a month or even longer.

Ketamine infusions have been used successfully to treat:

  • CRPS I & II
  • Chronic pain not responding to any other treatment
  • Migraines not responding to any other treatment
  • Neuropathies/ nerve pain not responding to any other treatment
