Press Release (ePRNews.com) - KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Oct 24, 2018 - OptiMed Health Partners and LifeInfusions are collaborating to provide ketamine infusions, a highly effective therapy for depression, anxiety, and pain, to eligible patients in the Kalamazoo area. This intravenous (IV) therapy is gaining traction nationally as a potential solution for patients with refractory or difficult to treat mental health conditions. OptiMed and LifeInfusions have recognized a need in the Kalamazoo community and have partnered to help those patients who have exhausted most conventional treatment options.
Chad Henry, a clinical pharmacist at OptiMed Health Partners, explains that “ketamine provides patients with severe depression, anxiety, or pain who have failed conventional therapies with an effective and rapid-acting alternative. Relief is needed immediately, and ketamine makes it possible. It is safe, effective, and can make a big impact on improving daily quality of life for these patients.”
Despite being highly effective, ketamine infusions are not widely utilized due to previous reports of dissociative effects during the administration process and the potential for abuse. However, ketamine is used commonly for its anesthetic properties, and when administered in low doses for short-term use through a regulated health care agency, it provides a safe and highly effective treatment option for many patients.
