How do I prepare for ketamine therapy? 

In preparation for dosing sessions, you must fast for 6 hours (food) and 2 hours (clear liquids) prior to the session. You must have an adult support person drive you home from your dosing session appointments, and you may not drive the remainder of the day. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a phone with the Spotify app, headphones, an eye mask, a journal or notebook, and comfort items, such as a blanket or pillow. 

Our team will discuss coping skills for you to begin using in preparation for dosing and integration. Please begin practicing box breathing for 2 -5 minutes several times per day. Arrive early on dosing days and use the restroom before your appointment begins. Giving yourself plenty of time to settle in will help with any nervousness you may feel. 

Can I take my medications during ketamine therapy? 

Generally, individuals can remain on prescription medications during KAP treatment. Please pause on ADHD medication such as Adderall, Modafinil, Vyvanse, etc., on dosing days. Limit caffeine intake on dosing days and refrain from cannabis use at least 24 hours prior to dosing.
