What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is an anesthesia that blocks the NMDA receptor. Ketamine was put on WHO’s List of Essential Medicines because it’s safe and effective for surgery, but more recently studies have shown ketamine treatment can effect rapid improvement in mood with reduction suicidality compared to people who receive placebos or another medication.

Why Innovative Ketamine?

Depression is a challenging condition for everyone to cope with. There are many who find relief in traditional treatments, but there’s been an increase of people struggling without it or experiencing treatment-resistant depression that doesn’t respond well enough to medication–neither does psychotherapy alone provide the answers they need when their mood and thoughts spiral out into panic attacks and feelings of hopelessness. That’s why we offer ketamine infusions because ketamine has shown great promise during small studies where subjects experienced rapid improvements after receiving only 3 intravenous infusion sessions over 2 days each lasting just 20 minutes followed by another single dose 7 hours later.

 

We’ve seen success rates as high 75% for the treatment of depression, and if you or someone in your life is suffering from this illness it’s time to get back on track. Schedule an appointment today!

Is Ketamine Right For Me?

Ketamine is a fast-acting antidepressant that could be right for you. Adults age 18 or older who suffer from severe depression and have not been successful with traditional treatments are eligible to try ketamine therapy, our evaluation will include medical history questions as well basic lab results before starting treatments owe can ensure safety in this new approach.

What Are The Risks?

For depression, the doses of ketamine used in therapy are much lower than what’s given as anesthesia. This makes it safe and not nearly as risky–though there can still be some side effects such as a change to blood pressure or heart rate that we’ll monitor throughout your treatment with us today! Longer-term risks include urinary symptoms (which might happen), cognitive impairment over time due to long-term use of this drug -and substance abuse disorders if any were present before you came here today for care… We want all patients aware though; these issues may come up again but won’t hurt them unless something happens like another injury while they’re unconscious from receiving our medication.
