KETAMINE FOR TREATMENT RESISTANT DEPRESSION
KETAMINE FOR TREATMENT RESISTANT DEPRESSION | TRD TREATMENTS
31% of clinically depressed Americans fail to respond to treatment. Those who struggle with treatment resistant depression (TRD) often find themselves feeling helpless and hopeless. However, ketamine for treatment resistant depression could help—even if nothing has worked in the past.
Depression is considered treatment-resistant after a patient fails to respond to two or more first-line treatments, including talk therapy and antidepressant medications. While patients certainly have the option to explore alternative antidepressants, change the dose of their existing antidepressants, or engage in different types of therapy, many still find their efforts futile. If you or a loved one is struggling to find an effective depression treatment, ketamine therapy may be an option.
Ketamine for treatment resistant depression works where other options fail. It provides relief for more than 70% of patients. Where traditional antidepressants generally work by increasing neurotransmitters in the brain—for example, serotonin or noradrenaline—ketamine works on the glutamate system, providing relief through an entirely different mechanism. Researchers have called ketamine a “wonder drug” for treatment resistant depression, and it has emerged as one of the most effective TRD treatments available today.
An Effective Treatment for TRD
70% of patients respond to ketamine, making it one of the most effective TRD treatments available.
Ketamine Works Fast

Backed by Science
Studies indicate that ketamine rapidly alleviates the symptoms of treatment resistant depression, including suicidality.
