We’re excited to now offer IV infusions of Ketamine for severe depression and chronic pain.
Multiple studies over the last 20 years have proven the safety and effectiveness of ketamine infusions for the 15% of patients who don’t respond to typical antidepressants. Whereas antidepressants take a long time to work and have multiple side effects, ketamine works within hours and has very few side effects.
Patients who suffer from chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, PTSD, fibromyalgia and migraine headaches may all be potential candidates for ketamine infusions.
About 80% of patients with treatment resistant depression, including PTSD, experience rapid relief after a low-dose ketamine infusion.
This is usually provided as a 40 minute infusion which is repeated anywhere from 4-6 times over a two week period. The antidepressant effects can last months.
If you or someone you love is suffering from severe depression, I encourage you to ask your psychiatrist or therapist about the science of Ketamine Therapy.
Please contact the clinic if you have any questions.
