Ketamine therapy is an innovative depression treatment that uses the dissociative anesthetic medication ketamine to rapidly improve mood. Traditionally an anesthetic in the operating room, ketamine has proven to be an effective approach for treatment-resistant depression when administered in low doses.
Noble Health Solutions offers ketamine therapy under the supervision of an experienced medical provider to ensure safe and effective treatment for individuals with depression.
Ketamine can effectively help relieve symptoms of treatment-resistant depression. It disrupts the brain’s N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, which help regulate mood and can be overactive in individuals with depression. This interaction results in a sudden sense of joy, euphoria, and mood elevation.
Ketamine’s dissociative effects can help individuals temporarily detach from their negative thought patterns and emotions to relieve symptoms of depression. It can be an effective treatment for people who haven’t found lasting success with traditional medications.
Ketamine therapy is currently available in intravenous (IV) infusion, pill form, and nasal spray. The appropriate delivery method for you depends on many factors, including your medical history, treatment goals, and the severity of your symptoms.
Ketamine infusion treatments typically take up to one hour. During each treatment, you sit in a comfortable chair while your provider delivers the medication directly into your bloodstream through an IV in your arm. The number of sessions to address treatment-resistant depression varies, but many patients benefit from up to six treatments spaced out by two to three weeks.
If your provider determines that oral pills or nasal spray is right for you, they can supervise your treatments. Noble Health Solutions specializes in medication management, which reduces the risk of negative medication interactions and improves treatment outcomes.
