Safe Haven Health is a virtual mental health clinic specializing in at-home ketamine treatment for depression and anxiety. Safe Haven Health’s ketamine treatment programs involve taking sublingual ketamine under the guidance of a medical provider and a coach. The frequency and dosage of ketamine will depend on the patient’s needs and medical history.
The most common protocol in our program involves taking ketamine every three days. Under this protocol, patients take a sublingual tablet that dissolves under the tongue or between their cheek and gums. The tablet contains a measured dose of ketamine, which is much lower than the dosage used in surgical anesthesia in the medical setting.
Patients are usually instructed to take the troche every two to three days for several weeks to several months, depending on the individual’s response to treatment. Patients will be asked to journal their symptoms and mood to track their progress during this time.
At-home ketamine treatment must only be done under the guidance of a qualified medical professional. Ketamine can have side effects, and supervision is essential to ensure the treatment is safe and effective.
Safe Haven Health takes safety seriously and provides 100% access to a provider and coach for support through text. This means that patients have access to medical professionals who can answer any questions or concerns they may have about their treatment.
In conclusion, at-home ketamine treatment protocols will vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and medical history. Our “every 2-3 days” protocol is one common approach, which involves taking a sublingual troche every 3 days for a period of several weeks to several months under medical supervision. Other common protocols utilized with sublingual ketamine are once-a-week dosing or daily microdosing.
