What to Expect at Your First Infusion
All You Need to Know
You’ll come in for your appointment having all your questions about the infusions answered by one of the board-certified physicians on our team. If you would like to clear up any final questions prior to your session, prior please give us a call.
For the first infusion, please have nothing to eat for at least 6 hours prior. You may drink water up until 2 hours prior. Hydration can help make placing an IV easy.
We recommend bringing headphones and listen to lyric-less, calming music, similar to music you would listen to at a spa. There are ketamine playlists available on youtube and spotify.
We also recommend bringing a blanket and sleep masks/eye shades, as some patients find it comforting to use these items during the infusion. Some of these items may be available at our office for your use, depending on location.
Place your phone on "Do Not Disturb" or airplane mode. We do NOT recommend texting during the infusion and also phone calls during them may interrupt the experience.
We do recommend a bit of mental preparation prior to the infusion. Similar to stretching before a workout or exercise, mentally preparing yourself for each infusion will make the experience that much more pleasant.
For questions about the infusion process itself, please refer to our step-by-step "how it works" guide.
