Ketamine is administered as a dissolvable medication that is placed under the tongue. This medication is obtained through a prescription and filled at a compounding pharmacy.
Response rates to sublingual administration are less than infusion; however, this route is relatively inexpensive and easy to manage. We integrate this formulation to increase the time between infusions, or to help maintain adequate symptom relief between scheduled infusions.
Sublingual ketamine is also used for our maintenance program following our Oral Ketamine Group Therapy program.
