Ketamine Treatment For Depression And Anxiety
Intranasal ketamine is one of the ways The Crane Center Florida works with patients in need of this type of treatment. We also have intramuscular options. Your doctor will work with you to determine which route of administration may be most effective.
Ketamine therapy must be delivered in a healthcare environment where patients will be observed for up to two hours.
Ketamine Treatment for depression is available for adults 18 and over who suffer moderate to severe depression and who have not thrived in traditional therapies for depression.

Ketamine treatment dosages for depression are significantly lower and relatively safer than the anesthesia dosages.
