Ketamine is a medication used for various medical purposes, including anesthesia, pain management, and is often prescribed in mental health conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). When there is a shortage of ketamine, it can lead to a range of problems and challenges in healthcare and treatment settings:
Ketamine is commonly used as an anesthetic during surgical procedures, and a shortage can lead to delays in surgeries and medical procedures, potentially affecting patient outcomes.
Patients in pain! Ketamine is used in various pain management protocols, especially for patients with chronic or severe pain conditions. A shortage may limit healthcare providers’ ability to effectively manage pain in these individuals. Town & Country Compounding can compound various dosage forms and strengths of ketamine.
The ketamine shortage can create anxiety and stress in patients who depend on ketamine for mental health treatment: Ketamine has gained popularity for depression and other mental health conditions when other therapies have failed. A shortage of ketamine can limit access to this potentially life-changing therapy for individuals with treatment-resistant depression. For patients who rely on ketamine therapy for mental health conditions, a shortage can create anxiety and stress as they may face interruptions in their treatment plans.
Medical emergency delays: Ketamine is an important medication for emergency medical situations, such as trauma or pediatric sedation. A shortage can reduce the availability of this critical tool in emergency response.
Town & Country Compounding can help your practice and patients with the strengths and dosage forms you need.
We are licensed to fill & ship prescription medications to multiple states.
“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.”
