Ketamine Treatment For Depression

MIAMI KETAMINE TREATMENT & DEPRESSION

On March 5th, The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved a drug designed to treat depression for the first time in decades. This drug we know to be Ketamine and is going by the name Esketamine or the brand name Spravato™. When being used to treat depression, Esketamine is taken as a nasal spray. Today, other methods such as intravenous delivery of the drug is now being coming popular and is showing to have even more positive effects.

EFFECTIVENESS OF KETAMINE FOR DEPRESSION

Ketamine has been proved to be so effective for depression that the FDA expedited its approval process this past year. This is a rarity in it’s respective field. In one study, Esketamine has been shown to improve the condition of 70% of patients who have shown a resistance to other treatment methods.

HOW IS KETAMINE USED FOR DEPRESSION?

HOW IS KETAMINE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER ANTI DEPRESSANTS?

Ketamine treatment for depression works differently than more traditional drugs. Drugs like Valium help with anxiety for as long as they are in your system. Once the drug is diluted enough, the anxiety returns. On the other hand, with Ketamine, reactions are triggered in the patient’s cortex. This enables the brain to regrow some of it’s connections. Simply stated, it is the reaction to Ketamine that helps treat depression, not the presence of it. (Paraphrased from excerpt by Dr. John Krystal – Yale University).

Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.

HOW DOES KETAMINE TREATMENT WORK?

Ketamine works by creating a reaction in the cortex section of the human brain. This reaction allows the brain to regrow connections that ease the feeling of anxiety. When anxiety subsides, the patient is able to return to a sense of normalcy during the completion of ordinary daily tasks. Over time, Ketamine has proved in clinical studies that it can properly and effectively treat depression. Ketamine has been touted a miracle drug by the medical industry as it has made the transition from anesthetic to anti-depressant.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF KETAMINE WHEN USED TO TREAT DEPRESSION?

Some of the side effects may include but are not limited to:

  • Dizziness
  • Rise in blood pressure
  • Feelings of detachment
  • Disconnection from reality

In addition, it should be noted that studies have only been able to follow patients for one year. This means that long term effects are not yet known for those prescribed the anti depressant for a long period of time.

When it comes to Esketamine, it is only recommended as part of an anti-depression treatment plan. Some doctors recommend it be taken in conjunction with an oral anti depressant, but this depends on the patient.

THE KETAMINE CONCLUSION

Ultimately, the effectiveness and green lighting of Ketamine as a drug to fight depression gives doctors another weapon in their arsenal. It also gives patients who have been fighting depression with no success a new hope.

HOW IS KETAMINE TREATMENT AT TRISTAR WELLNESS DIFFERENT?

At Tristar Wellness we strive to provide our customers with elevated experiences in just about every aspect of our practice.

OUR PROCESS

We ask about any depression symptoms, treatment history, other medical conditions, and whether you’ve had any problems with substance abuse before starting you on Ketamine. Knowing your health history will ensure that the benefits of this treatment outweigh the risks.

While you undergo the IV treatment, medical staff will monitor you for any physical and mental effects from the drug. In the extremely rare case that a problem arises, we have clear operating procedures on how to manage and keep patients safe.
