    My adult daughter has migraines, fibromyalgia, neuropathy and is addicted to every pain killer there is including fentnyl which she has overdosed on.  She went to detox in April but is still being prescribed narcotics for her pain.  She has heard of the ketamine infusion treatment and has been trying to find a Dr. who could help her.  It would be a miracle if there is a treatment to help her with her pain.  Please let me know what we need to do to get her to a clinic.

    Dear Marilyn,

     

    If your daughter is currently addicted to any medications, it is unlikely that she is a candidate for ketamine infusions, but that's something that only the treating doctor could determine.

     

    Are you asking about these infrusions for her Migraines? If so, I suggest that she make an appointment with a Migraine specialist for assessment and devising a treatment plan. Some of these doctors are set up to administer IV infusions in their offices; others are not. Until a specialist actually sees your daughter, they will not know if ketamine is the recommended treatment for her or not.

     

    Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special? If you need help finding a Migraine specialist, check our listing of Patient Recommended Migraine and Headache Specialists.

     

    Good luck to you and your daughter,

    Teri
