The Do's and Don'ts of Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Depression can be a debilitating condition, and finding the right treatment can be challenging. Certain treatment options may not work for all patients. Luckily, there are certain approaches to depression treatment that are proving to be helpful. Ketamine infusion therapy is one such treatment. This treatment option provides relief from depression and other types of mental health conditions that can affect quality of life. Let’s learn more about this option.

What Is Ketamine Infusion Therapy?

Ketamine is an anesthetic that has been used for years in operating rooms for surgery. According to researchers at Yale, in ultra-low doses, ketamine has a significant anti-depressant effect when administered through an IV. Research has been conducted for the last 20 years to perfect this treatment option. These innovations have helped patients finally gain relief from depression and mental health challenges.

What Conditions Does Ketamine Treat?

Ketamine infusion therapy can be used to treat major depressive disorder, treatment-resistant depression, suicidal ideations, OCD, PTSD, anxiety disorder, and more. This treatment can only be used when a diagnosis of an existing condition is demonstrated by a doctor.

How Does This Treatment Work?

Ketamine is effective because it increases glutamate levels. When glutamate is increased, vital neural connections are re-established. This results in positive changes in the brain’s circuit function and this creates mood regulation.

Ketamine Do's and Don’ts

Ketamine is a powerful substance, and it can only be administered in a healthcare facility by trained professionals. Don’t take substances from others that are labeled ketamine. Don’t attempt to administer ketamine yourself, either. This could lead to a life-threatening scenario.

Do talk to your doctor about this treatment option, find a facility near you that provides ketamine infusion therapy, and remain under your doctor’s care and keep them updated on any changes in your symptoms. Do continue to take other steps to improve mental health challenges such as eating a proper diet, getting plenty of exercise, maintaining a proper sleep schedule, and practicing destressing techniques. All of these can work together to help you find relief from depression symptoms.

These are just a few things you should know about ketamine infusion therapy. If you’re looking for a facility that provides this treatment, please contact us at Keystone Medical Wellness today.
