Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Ketamine therapy is a treatment approach that uses low doses of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic medication, to manage various mental health conditions, such as treatment-resistant depression, anxiety disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Ketamine is approved for use at high doses as an anesthetic in the operating room. Although not FDA-approved, lower dose “sub-anesthetic” ketamine injections are used “off-label” to treat depression, pain, and other mental health/substance use disorders.
In recent times, there have been many factors contributing to increased depression across wide populations. There are several medications available for depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders which involve daily administration of a medication aimed at correction of neurochemical imbalances via action at specific brain receptors (e.g. serotonin, dopamine, mu opioid).
Ketamine Infusion Therapy is a promising treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, including Depression, Anxiety, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Neuro Mind TMS Centre is a leading provider of ketamine infusion therapy, and their team of experienced doctors are dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality of care.
What is Ketamine Infusion Therapy?
Ketamine is a medication that has been used for decades as an anesthetic. However, in recent years, it has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health conditions. Ketamine infusion therapy involves administering ketamine intravenously over a period of 30-60 minutes. The medication works by blocking the NMDA receptor in the brain, which is thought to be involved in mood regulation.
