About Us

Ketamine, a significant medical discovery in 1962, gained its first use in human trials by 1964 and received approval for medical use in the United States in 1970. Its remarkable safety profile led to its widespread use for surgical anesthesia during the Vietnam War. Recognizing its critical importance, the World Health Organization has listed Ketamine on its List of Essential Medicines, highlighting it as one of the safest and most effective medicines in a health system.

Since its initial discovery, Ketamine has emerged as a breakthrough treatment for a range of mood disorders and chronic pain syndromes. In particular, at sub-anesthetic doses, Ketamine demonstrates efficacy in treating Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety, and various Chronic Pain Syndromes. This includes conditions like Central Sensitization Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.

A pivotal moment came on May 27th, 2016, when the World Health Organization presented updates on Ketamine, highlighting its evolving therapeutic potential. Among the new applications identified were its use in treating depression and refractory status epilepticus. The role of Ketamine in depression treatment is particularly noteworthy, currently under investigation in Phase III clinical trials. The report also indicated a notable decline in Ketamine abuse in several countries, reaffirming its safety profile.

In the United States, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has officially approved Ketamine for anesthesia and pain control. However, it’s important to note that the FDA has not yet approved Ketamine for treating mood disorders or chronic pain management. Consequently, Ketamine infusions for these conditions are considered “off label” uses. This distinction has significant implications for insurance coverage, as most insurance companies, including government programs like Medicaid and Medicare, do not cover these off-label infusions.

Despite these insurance limitations, Ketamine Florida and Ketamine Florida Treatments offer hope for individuals suffering from mood disorders or chronic pain. Recognized as a safe medication, Ketamine infusions are conducted under strict medical supervision. A physician and a registered nurse are present during the entire infusion process, ensuring the utmost safety and care for the patient.
