What Is Ketamine?

IV Ketamine treatments for treatment-resistant depression have been deemed a crucial development in the field of antidepressant treatment. The former National Institutes of Mental Health director, Dr. Thomas Insel, describes this treatment as “perhaps the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.” This is due to Ketamine’s ability to be an efficient, fast-acting, and safe medication for people suffering from depression.

Multiple studies it has been shown that Ketamine is particularly effective in patients who have failed to respond to other treatments. This drug is often utilized in cases where suicidal thoughts and severe depressive symptoms are present. Ketamine is a promising development in treating a condition that doesn’t discriminate and affects many people.

What Is Spravato?

SPRAVATO® is a breakthrough treatment for major depressive disorder. It is an intranasal prescription medicine, used along with an antidepressant taken by mouth, for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) in adults. TRD is defined as the failure of two or more oral antidepressants of adequate dose and duration to produce a response or remission.

If you’ve struggled with depression and tried two or more antidepressants in your current episode without adequate relief, talk with your current doctor or schedule an evaluation with us to see if SPRAVATO may benefit you.

How Does Ketamine Work

Ketamine, a drug commonly used as an anesthetic, has been found to offer rapid relief for those suffering from severe depression. Unlike most modern antidepressants, Ketamine blocks NMDA receptors for glutamate, producing significant patient results. Typically, Ketamine is administered intravenously over 40 minutes in one single dosage.

Studies have shown that Ketamine can significantly reduce depressive symptoms almost immediately, making it highly effective for various patients. In contrast, traditional antidepressant medications can take weeks or even months to take effect and are only effective in roughly 40% of patients. With its quick and sustained reduction in severe depressive symptoms, Ketamine offers new hope to those struggling with this debilitating condition.

What Happens During an Infusion?

Infusion Therapy is a medical procedure in private rooms and utilizes constant mechanical monitoring to ensure patient safety and comfort. The procedure involves administering an appropriate dose of medication, such as ketamine, over a 40-minute time frame or longer. Throughout the infusion, practitioners watch the patient’s vital signs from the nursing station and enter the patient treatment room several times during the active phase of the infusion to monitor sedation levels and ensure patient comfort. The constant monitoring of heart rate, pulse, blood oxygen saturation percentages, and blood pressure provides patients with peace of mind knowing they are receiving the best possible care.

Ketamine infusions remarkably affect patients experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. With patients reporting a relaxing and peaceful experience, the infusions can quickly alleviate symptoms in upwards of 80% of patients. Although some may experience changes in vision and difficulty focusing, most report a sensation of floating or being disconnected. The effects occur almost immediately, and symptoms can be relieved after 1-2 infusions. With its potent therapeutic properties, ketamine infusions offer hope for patients seeking relief from the challenges of mental illness.

What happens after the infusion?

The infusion may temporarily impair your coordination, balance, and reflexes for a few hours. Rest and limit activity throughout the entire day of your infusion. You may temporarily experience lightheadedness, blurry vision, and drowsiness after your IV Ketamine treatment.
