When and How to Receive It

Some general considerations to keep in mind when receiving Ketalar include the following:

  • The injections are administered by a trained healthcare provider in a healthcare setting.
  • Ketalar may be given alone or in combination with other anesthetic medications.
  • This medication works best when it is given on an empty stomach. Make sure to find out from your healthcare provider whether you may eat before your procedure.
  • For this drug to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The reason you are receiving Ketalar
  • Your weight
  • How you respond to the medication
  • How it is administered (into a vein or into a muscle)
  • Other medications given with Ketalar.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
