Ketamine for mood disorders
IV Ketamine has been shown to be an effective treatment in managing symptoms of mood disorders including depression and suicidal ideation, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Postpartum Depression (PPD) for people who aren’t sufficiently helped by traditional anti-depressant medications.
“Recent data suggest that Ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades. Several studies demonstrate that ketamine reduces depression within six hours, with effects that are equal to or greater than the effects of six weeks of treatment with other antidepressant medications. The shift from six weeks to six hours has already transformed what we could and should expect of antidepressant treatments.
