Ketamine for Opioid Tolerance
Chronic pain conditions are often treated with medicinal opioids, which can lead to tolerance or addiction with long-term use. When a patient becomes tolerant to a particular medication, efficacy is reduced. Pain symptoms may return or worsen, resulting in a need for a higher dosage or a change to medications. Some patients are more predisposed to tolerance than others, so the effectiveness of opioids as treatment will vary.
Dosage limits apply to all medications. When the opioids you are taking for chronic pain are no longer providing relief, it is time to explore alternative solutions. Changing medications can cause disruptions to daily life while your body adjusts. This is not ideal for patients who have education, work or family commitments. Ketamine infusion therapy can reduce or eliminate reliance on opioids while providing lasting pain relief.
Chronic Pain Treatment
Chronic conditions can result in permanent pain and discomfort, which is challenging to manage without medication. Opioids can provide effective relief, but tolerance and addiction may impact efficacy. If you are concerned about unintended side effects or other issues associated with opioid use, Allied Pain & Spine Institute offers ketamine infusion treatment as an alternative form of pain relief.
