Understanding Ketamine: Safety and Misconceptions

Addressing Recent Concerns: A Message from Revitalizing Infusion Therapies

In light of the recent tragic passing of Matthew Perry and the subsequent public concern, we at Revitalizing Infusion Therapies feel it’s crucial to provide clarity and education on the safe use of ketamine.

The loss of Matthew Perry is deeply saddening, and the autopsy report revealed that his death was due to the acute effects of ketamine, along with other contributory factors. It is essential to note that the ketamine levels in Mr. Perry’s system were significantly higher than what is typically used in clinical settings, indicating misuse.

As a leader in therapeutic ketamine administration, we understand the concerns raised by this news. We want to assure the public that ketamine, when used responsibly and under medical supervision, is incredibly safe. Our clinic is committed to the highest safety standards, including thorough patient screening, monitoring of vital signs, and appropriate dosing.

It’s important to differentiate between the clinical use and misuse of ketamine. We also want to address misleading claims suggesting a direct link between Mr. Perry’s ketamine infusions for depression and his death. Given ketamine’s short half-life, it is medically unlikely that his last infusion, which occurred over a week before his passing, contributed to the ketamine level at the time of his death. Additionally, the combination of ketamine with other sedatives, particularly in a setting like a hot tub, is extremely risky.

This tragic event highlights the importance of following medical guidelines and understanding the risks of combining substances or using them in potentially dangerous settings. At Revitalizing Infusion Therapies, we are dedicated to educating the public about the safe use of ketamine and providing life-saving therapy under the safest conditions. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragedy.

For any questions or concerns about ketamine therapy, we encourage you to reach out to us for informed discussions. Revitalizing Infusion Therapies is a leading provider of clinically supervised ketamine treatments, offering a safe, controlled, and compassionate environment for ketamine therapy. Our commitment to patient safety and best practices in ketamine administration places us at the forefront of this innovative treatment field.
