How it works

1. Meet AN Isha Health DOCTOR

To begin your treatment, we start with a 60-minute video consultation that includes a thorough assessment. During this session, we will ask various questions about your current symptoms, medical history, and other relevant factors to comprehensively evaluate your condition. This helps us determine your suitability for our ketamine therapy and allows us to design a personalized treatment strategy that matches your unique requirements.

2. Receive Your Shipment

After your consultation, your prescription for oral ketamine will be sent to a compounding pharmacy. If you have a preferred pharmacy, we can send the prescription to the pharmacy as well. Once the prescription is processed, you can typically expect to receive your medication delivered to your door within 3-5 business days.

3. Prepare for your session with Isha team

You will receive thorough instructions for your session via email before your medication arrives. You can message the Isha team as many times as you like if you have any questions.

4. Your First Session

Once your space is prepared, start the treatment by placing the ketamine tablet under your tongue. The effects of the medicine persist for approximately 2 hours, during which you'll unwind on a sofa or bed, adorned with an eye mask.
