Patients with mood and anxiety disorders that have been previously resistant to conventional treatment now have hope! That hope is Ketamine, which is now shown in research to produce rapid and successful treatment in depression and other mood disorders.

Originally developed in the 1960’s Ketamine quickly became a go to anesthetic in the battlefields of Vietnam and has since became a very safe and effective medication for providing anesthesia in a wide range of patients. Although still unclear of exactly how Ketamine works, we do know that it works differently than the commonly prescribed antidepressant medications. Ketamine infusions have been discovered to create new pathways and connections in the brain by releasing specific neurotransmitters. Scientists have found that exposure to stress over time kills off neurons in our brains. This extinction of neurons over time results in depression. Ketamine infusions actually stimulate the growth of these lost neurons within hours of an infusion leading to a decrease or complete cessation in the depressive symptoms.

The infusions take place over 40 minutes and are at a much lower dose than that needed for anesthesia. Once began, the patient’s vital signs and EKG are monitored until the infusion is complete and the ketamine is metabolized out of the body. Typically patients are in office for 1.5 to 2 hours total. During the infusion, patients report feelings of euphoria, and can experience sensations of floating or rocking. Ketamine is a psychedelic therefore mild non-threatening hallucinations can occur such as seeing vivid colors. Mental health infusions for depression, hopelessness, anxiety, suicidal ideations, and PTSD take place over four sessions and are administered every other day.
