Depression is becoming an epidemic, with a reported 16 million people being affected in the United States. It's shown to be a leading cause of disability with increased risk of physical ailments including heart attacks, cancer, eating disorders, addiction and it's a major factor in suicidal ideation.
Ketamine infusions can work rapidly, typically within a few hours, and can treat depression without the side effects of traditional anti-depressant medications. Standard anti-depressants can take up to 6 weeks to become effective. Ketamine can bridge the gap by providing immediate relief. Research shows that a series of 6 low dose ketamine infusions over a two week period, can quickly reduce depression symptoms and suicidal thoughts. Infusion therapy should be an adjunct treatment and it is recommended that all patients continue their current therapy, prescribed medications and regular visits with a primary or mental health care provider.
