Ketamine Treatment for Depression
THE BENEFITS OF KETAMINE FOR DEPRESSION
Ketamine therapy is highly effective for all types of depression, including but not limited to; major depressive disorder, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), persistent depressive disorder, postpartum depression, bipolar disorder, and treatment-resistant depression
It’s absolutely vital to recognize that Ketamine is not a first-line depression treatment, but rather an option for those who have failed to respond to depression medication, talk therapy, and other first-line treatments. If you are struggling with severe depression, and no other treatment has helped, ketamine therapy may be an option for you.
Effectiveness in treatment-resistant depression: For individuals who have not responded to conventional antidepressant treatments, ketamine therapy has been shown to provide relief from symptoms.
Rapid onset of action: Unlike traditional antidepressants which can take several weeks to work, ketamine infusion can produce significant improvements in symptoms within a few hours.
Long-lasting effects: The anti-depressant effects of ketamine have been found to last for several weeks after a single administration.
KETAMINE THERAPY IS EFFECTIVE FOR ALL TYPES OF DEPRESSION
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
Major Depressive Disorder
Though research about ketamine therapy is ongoing, we do have the knowledge to conclude that ketamine works differently in the brain than traditional selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressants. Instead of boosting the amount of serotonin in the brain, ketamine works on the glutamate system and works to repair damaged neural connections. Additionally, Ketamine is proven to be safe, with limited side effects.
