Hi Georgiegirl
Good question. I have no idea but it does depend on which State and Dr you use. You can't name Dr but it would help others reply if they knew which State you are in, rural or suburban, public or private patient.

I'm private and SA and can't get it.

Hi Georgiegirl,
In SA you can get ketamine infusion in the public system, there are mostly done through the pain clinics of the public hospitals that have them.

Thanks Don
Getting into the pain management clinics is the first problem with horrendous wait times.
