About ketamine therapy

Ketamine therapy is a form of treatment that uses the drug ketamine to alleviate symptoms of various mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that has been used for decades in the medical field for pain management and sedation during surgery. However, in recent years, studies have shown that ketamine can be a promising option for individuals who suffer from treatment-resistant depression (TRD) and other mood disorders


About the treatment
  •  Ketamine therapy involves the administration of ketamine through a nasal spray device.  
  • Preparation: Before the treatment, the patient will undergo a medical evaluation to determine their eligibility for ketamine therapy. The provider will review the patient's medical history and current medications to ensure that there are no contraindications.
  • Administration: Once the patient is deemed eligible for treatment, the provider will administer the ketamine nasal spray. The patient will be instructed to hold their head back slightly and insert the nasal spray device into their nostril. The provider will then depress the plunger to release the medication. The patient will inhale gently to ensure that the medication is absorbed through the nasal lining.
  • Observation: After the medication is administered, the patient will be monitored for a period of time to ensure that they do not experience any adverse reactions.
  • Follow-up: After the treatment, the provider will schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate the patient's response to the treatment. The patient may be asked to keep a journal of their symptoms to track their progress over time.

What is ketamine therapy?

Ketamine therapy is a type of treatment that is gaining popularity in the medical community for its effectiveness in treating various mental health conditions. Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that has been used for decades in surgical and emergency medicine. It has also been found to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mood disorders. It works by targeting the (NMDA) receptor in the brain, which is involved in the regulation of mood and cognition. By blocking the NMDA receptor, ketamine triggers a release of glutamate, a neurotransmitter that helps to stimulate the growth of new neural connections in the brain. This process is believed to help break negative thought patterns and promote emotional healing. Unlike traditional antidepressants, which can take weeks or even months to take effect, ketamine therapy can provide rapid relief from symptoms, sometimes within hours or days. ketamine therapy is a promising new treatment option for individuals who are struggling with mental health issues and have not found relief with traditional treatments. If you’re interested in learning more about ketamine therapy, contact a licensed medical professional who specializes in this type of treatment.
