KETAMINE FOR DEPRESSION

THE BENEFITS OF KETAMINE FOR DEPRESSION

Ketamine for depression has emerged as one of the most effective major depressive disorder treatments available today. Effective for up to 70% of patients—including those who have not responded to depression medication or other depression treatments in the past—ketamine therapy works rapidly to alleviate the symptoms of depression. Most patients report an improvement in their symptoms within 1-2 infusions, and some patients feel better within hours of their first infusion.

While research about ketamine therapy is ongoing, we know that ketamine works differently in the brain than traditional selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressants. Rather than boosting the amount of serotonin in the brain, ketamine works on the glutamate system and essentially helps repair damaged neural connections. Ketamine is safe, and has minimal side effects.

It’s important to note that ketamine therapy is not a first-line depression treatment. Ketamine infusions are an option for those who have failed to respond to depression medication, talk therapy, and other first-line depression treatments. If you are struggling with severe depression, and no other treatment has helped, ketamine therapy may be an option for you.
