This type of treatment offers military veterans who have not previously responded well to antidepressants, a treatment option that has been successful for 70-80% of patients. Most patients begin with a series of six ketamine IV infusions over a 2-3 week period. Depending on a patient’s response, the doctor may add medications, vitamins, and nutrients to their infusions to enhance the positive effect of the treatments.

Up to about 60% of patients treated with adequately dosed antidepressants have an inadequate response. Since the rate of depression in military veterans is markedly higher than for average Americans, they experience a higher risk of developing treatment-resistant depression as well. Veterans struggling with this condition often experience feelings of worthlessness or guilt, suicidal ideations, difficulty concentrating, and impaired sleep, among other symptoms.

Thrive IV strives to make patients as comfortable and relaxed as possible during their ketamine IV treatment sessions. Patients receive their treatment seated in a soft recliner with a blanket, in a pleasantly lit room with calming, positive music playing. The Thrive IV team monitors patients’ vital signs during the treatment and adjusts the infusion based on their response.

Located in Dartmouth, MA, Thrive IV is dedicated to providing specialized Ketamine IV treatments and quality vitamin and nutrient infusions to the local community to help combat mental distress and promote overall wellness. The clinic’s primary physician, Dr. Michael Pellegrino, has been serving the southeastern Massachusetts area since 1996 and has studied the use and benefits of Ketamine for many years. Thrive IV treats patients suffering from fibromyalgia, CRPS, Reflex sympathetic pain, postpartum depression, anxiety, and more.

“Ketamine therapy has been shown to help as many as 70-80% or more in some studies,” said one spokesperson for the company. “We specialize in adding Ketamine infusions to help increase your feeling of well-being and reduce the terrible pain, depression, or anxiety you’ve been experiencing. Giving you hope to live a happier and more productive, fulfilled life.”
