Is Ketamine Treatment Right for You?
In the past, the first line of defense against mood disorders such as depression was SSRIs. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors work by blocking serotonin from being reabsorbed by neurons. However, this form of medication often does not work for patients. Sometimes having negative side-effects or no effect at all.
This is referred to as Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). These people find themselves being bounced around from one type of SSRI to another until they often feel hopeless. Ketamine is showing great promise in treating TRD using a different modality in the brain than SSRIs.
Does this sound familiar to you? If so, reaching out for a consultation could prove beneficial to your mental health. Ketamine doesn’t have to be a difficult regimen of dosing and its effects have been shown to last for multiple weeks in some patients. Relieving people of this daily burden is another positive effect of ketamine.
What mood disorders has Ketamine been used for?
- TRD Treatment-Resistant Depression

Ketamine’s Fast-Acting Relief
A group that benefits immensely from ketamine’s ability to work quickly is those with suicidal ideation. While other anti-depressants can take weeks to know if they have a positive outcome. The effects of ketamine have been shown to lower suicidal thoughts for those in a bad place, and often quickly. While no medication is a miracle worker, for people in these desperate times it has been shown to pull them back from the brink of destruction.
Especially with suicide rates at an all-time high, treatments that can work efficiently are becoming more paramount to find.
