The medically supervised and administered drug Ketamine has proven to be very effective on patients with depression. Whether that depression is related to PTSD, OCD, Post-Partum, bi-polar or other major depressive disorders, the administration of Ketamine IV therapy is providing favorable results for people suffering from these progressive afflictions.
What is Ketamine?
Since the late 1960s Ketamine has been used as an FDA-approved anesthetic medication. But amongst the average person, Ketamine is best known as a party drug when used illegally to garner a hallucinatory effect.
When Ketamine is not abused and is administered by a well-trained physician, Ketamine can help with symptoms like moodiness, decreased concentration, low self-esteem, impaired sleep, decreased sexual desire, impaired appetite and suicidal thoughts.
During the treatment the initial infusions usually take place over the course of 3 weeks and it’s typically two treatments a week with 6 infusions being administered every other day. In parts of the brain that control mood and emotions, the ketamine infusion creates new connections in the brain. These new connections help the brain to send positive signals to the psyche, along with beneficial physical conditions to the body. The affect is notable within hours and in some cases, patients report the results are instantaneous.
Ketamine IV therapy impacts both mood and anxiety and can result in positive treatment outcomes for the following disorders:
• Severe or Chronic Depression
• Bipolar Disorder
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
• Post-Partum Depression (PPD)
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
• Neuropathic Pain
