What Are The Symptoms of Depression?

Everybody’s journey with depression is different. Not all people who have an anxiety disorder will encounter the exact same symptoms. Below are some of the most common symptoms of depression.

How Does Ketamine Help With Depression?

Ketamine therapy gets the job done fast to minimize symptoms of depression. Nearly instantaneously, ketamine pinpoints synaptic receptors in the brain to moderate the brain’s reaction to stress and the development of traumatic memories. The widespread applications of ketamine for mental health also indicate that ketamine therapy can treat a variety of mood disorders.

Glutamate, an essential neurotransmitter for mood regulation, can mediate stress response and how the brain develops traumatic memories. By interacting with glutamate as an NMDA receptor antagonist, ketamine can create antidepressant or anti-anxiety properties.

These brain changes can occur within hours after ketamine infusion instead of classical oral antidepressants, which may take weeks or months to start working.

Low-dose ketamine infusion therapy may be an essential depression treatment for patients who have not responded to oral antidepressants. In recent studies, ketamine has had an immediate benefit for treatment-resistant depressive disorders, with some patients experiencing relief quickly and lasting days to weeks.

The Ketamine Infusion Experience

During treatment, we go above and beyond to make sure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their own private rooms. Infusions typically last 45-60 minutes for mood disorders, while chronic pain conditions require a larger dose and longer duration of infusion.

A number of our patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this disassociation effect is what aids with your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy.

These are all ordinary components of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team there to monitor you and be readily available during your infusion.

What Are The Side Effects of Ketamine Treatment?

As a new treatment option for depression, ketamine does have a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, disrupted vision, lightheadedness, nausea, or some slight anxious feelings during treatment.  Ketamine may also cause a slight elevation in heart rate and blood pressure.

Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication utilized in “off-label” use for infusion therapy. Off-label use indicates that it is a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops with time.
