Why Choose Intravenous Ketamine?

Several alternative forms of ketamine administration, such as oral lozenges, nasal sprays and intramuscular injections, have been offered by some new providers. While some of these may seem attractive at first, NONE of these administrations have a track record of success, and only intravenous (IV) ketamine has been extensively studied over the past 30 years. The data, published in hundreds of research papers from the National Institute of Mental Health and many other prestigious medical centers and universities like Yale and Mt. Sinai, have confirmed IV ketamine’s safety and efficacy in treating a multitude of mood disorders including treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, major anxiety and others.

Intramuscular Injections

Higher Risk of Dissociation

IM ketamine can result in very rapid uptake of ketamine from muscle resulting in unpredictably high blood levels. There is a much greater risk of entering a dissociative place that can be very uncomfortable, and without an intravenous line to administer a rescue drug there is no way to treat the experience other than waiting for blood levels to return to lower levels.

Oral Lozenges

Difficult To Manage

With oral ketamine, absorption and the resulting blood levels are highly erratic and unpredictable. When large doses are used at home — unsupervised by a qualified medical professional — safety becomes a serious issue with the potential for disturbing dissociative experiences that cannot be well-managed or treated. Oral ketamine administration at home is not a substitute for the safe and more effective IV administration that can only be found in an office setting with experienced caregivers.

Erratic Absorption

Nasal ketamine absorption into the body can also be quite erratic, leading to unintended consequences and decreased effectiveness. When administered nasally, ketamine is absorbed into arteries in the back of the nose that carry the drug directly to the middle of the pre-frontal cortex which is rich in opiate receptors. This results in a completely different experience than IV ketamine treatments, and leaves patients more prone to repeated use and abuse if allowed for home use. This is why Johnson and Johnson’s nasal spray, Spravato, is only prescribed for in-office, supervised administration.
