Will my current medications interfere with my Ketamine Infusion?
Please inform us of any and all medications you are taking. We are particularly interested in learning if you are taking:
1.Lamictal (generic name, lamotrigine). Patients should allow 12 hours between taking Lamictal and the start of their infusion. You should wait at least 6 hours after your infusion before resuming the use of Lamictal.
2.MAOI’s (monoamine oxidase inhibitors). Some common brand names are Isocarboxazid (Marplan), Phenelzine (Nardil), Selegiline (Emsam), and Tranylcypromine (Parnate). Patients cannot take any MAOIs within 2 weeks of an infusion.
3.SSRI’s or TCA’s (tricyclic antidepressant) medications do not interfere with ketamine. There is no requirement to discontinue there use.
4.There is no need to discontinue or reduce taking narcotics, muscle relaxants, or anti-inflammatory medications.
