Our Psychiatric Clinicians tailor the dose and frequency of ketamine based on each patient's individual needs. Utilizing our proprietary dosing algorithm, our clinicians consider the patient's condition, symptoms, and responsiveness to ketamine:
- The first two doses serve as a dose finding exercise to determine the patient’s sensitivity to ketamine, which will guide dose selection for future medicine sessions.
- At each subsequent check-in with their Psychiatric Clinician, patients will work with their clinician to adjust their dose of ketamine to better suit their evolving needs.
- Additionally, Innerwell patients can message their Psychiatric Clinician via the Innerwell Portal for any questions or concerns between appointments. This collaborative approach ensures personalized and responsive care throughout the treatment journey.
Most of our patients start at 100 or 200 mg and then increase from there, if clinically indicated. Our average dosing range is 400 to 600 mg. However, the dose range that we use ultimately depends on the individual's diagnosis, as well as medical and psychiatric history.
