Ketamine is an FDA-approved anesthetic and a potential breakthrough treatment option for psychiatric disorders and chronic pain. Ketamine has shown promising results in managing major depressive disorder (MDD), bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and post-operative and chronic pain. While the exact mechanism of action of ketamine is unknown, ketamine appears to increase the glutamate level in the brain and reduce inflammation signals.
IV ketamine therapy is a breakthrough option for patients with severe or complicated psychiatric disorders (treatment-resistant depression, depression combined with anxiety, PTSD) and pain disorders. About 70% of patients with treatment-resistant depression experience rapid relief after a low-dose ketamine infusion. Similar success rates have been seen in returning combat veterans who have PTSD. A patient who responds to ketamine infusion therapy can see therapeutic results after one to three infusions. IV ketamine has been shown to reduce depressive symptoms such as suicidality rapidly. If a patient experiences relief within the first three infusions, they are likely to benefit from the following sessions, which will sustain the symptom relief.
What to expect during a Ketamine treatment.
If you suffer from depression and anxiety, many adults feel powerless against these feelings. These all-consuming emotions can stem from childhood trauma or as a result of adult suffering and distress; regardless, they often wade through their own battles with PTSD and chronic pain, which is only made worse by the fact that prescription pills don’t always work for everyone who takes them (even those living within America). If this sounds familiar, then consider giving Ketamine treatment at Mesquite Health another shot–it’s been proven time after again how effective our clinic has become when fighting back against mental illnesses!.
Ketamine infusions take place in our private and comfortable Ketamine treatment room. During your infusion, we have a medical staff member available to check on you! We want every patient to feel welcome when they enter their favorite doctor’s office – so don’t worry about being embarrassed or anxious; just let us take care of the wayward hairs while providing comfort for any pain symptoms that may arise from what’s going inside them 🙂
While on the drip, patients experience supreme relaxation and “zone out” — enjoying the peaceful and tranquil environment and experience. Patients have compared the treatment to a “spiritual journey” where they feel warm, safe, and confident.
