When you go into a KAP session, you will be asked to relax in a quiet room while you take the prescribed dose of Ketamine. Your therapist may play soft music and have you put on an eye mask to make your experience calm and therapeutic.
The drug takes about 10 minutes to take effect, and you will likely experience its dissociative effects. Your therapist will then guide you through a psychotherapy session for the next 45 minutes or so. For many people, the experience can act as a strong catalyst for change.
Ketamine can be administered in any of the following forms.
- As a lozenge that dissolves under the tongue
- As a nasal spray
- As an intramuscular injection
- As an injection into your vein
Expected side effects of ketamine can include dizziness, nausea, and rapid heartbeat.
