Don’t Allow the Ketamine Shortage to Impact Patient Care
There is a shortage of ketamine injection (IV/infusion) in the marketplace. While ketamine is on the FDA shortage list, Town & Country Compounding can compound what you need for your specific patients.
Where you get your compounded ketamine makes a difference. Not all pharmacies uphold the same standards.
Do you know how your sterile compounded medicines are made?
Let us show you our state-of-the-art compounding labs.
Anesthesia during surgery
It is used for inducing and maintaining general anesthesia, especially in situations where maintaining the patient’s airway and cardiovascular stability is essential.
Ketamine is used for pain control in various situations, including acute pain management in emergency settings, and for chronic pain conditions like complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), neuropathic pain.
Depression and mood disorders
Ketamine has gained attention as a novel and rapid-acting antidepressant. It is administered in clinical settings for treatment-resistant depression (TRD), major depressive disorder (MDD), and bipolar depression.
Anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Ketamine has shown promise in anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and PTSD. It may provide relief for patients who have not responded to other means of addressing these issues.
Ketamine is being studied for its potential in other psychiatric conditions beyond depression and anxiety such as in bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and borderline personality disorder (BPD). Ketamine has been shown to reduce suicidal ideation in some patients, making it a valuable tool in psychiatric emergency situations.
“Town & Country Compounding has the quality my patients need and deserve.
Town & Country Compounding greatly helps my patients, and I recommend using them because of their quality and excellent customer service.
I recently had a patient who had elevated liver enzymes with a ketamine infusion. Due to the commercial product shortage, I ordered compounded ketamine infusions from Town & Country and noticed that the patient’s liver enzymes suddenly became stable. I was pleasantly surprised and repeated labs three times to ensure accuracy. Pharmacist/Owner John and I discussed high-quality compounding and its importance.”
