Ketamine and anxiety

 

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. Many such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) also commonly co-occur with depression. 

 

We understand that failure to appropriately manage and treat anxiety decreases your quality of life. IV Ketamine may be able to help people struggling with anxiety disorders who have not responded to traditional medications. 

 

IV ketamine's use for anxiety disorders has been shown to reduce anxiety symptoms rapidly and sustainably, enabling individuals undergoing Ketamine therapy to “make substantial changes to their lives - for example, employment, study, making friends, engaging socially, and traveling” (Psychiatric News).  For some, relief is immediate, for others, they feel relief after the full cycle.
