Ketamine is often a more rapid alternative for individuals who do not respond or are currently on antidepressant medication and need an additional fast-acting option.
This is particularly advantageous for men and women resistant to conventional antidepressant prescription medication, which work in only 50 to 60 percent of clients and can take four to five weeks to show whether they are functioning at all.
Many patients are beginning to utilize ketamine earlier during their treatment. What was once labeled as a last resort is quickly becoming becoming a first line treatment option for those who are battling depression.
Our current understanding is that Ketamine blocks NMDA receptors in the brain (as well as the body for pain), eliciting a neurochemical pathway that leads to more protein production and thus rapid antidepressant effects in the brain.
Depression often goes unnoticed or undiagnosed. An individual’s symptoms of depression, which may include feeling sad for no discernable reason; sleeping too much; giving up on things that used to be enjoyable (e.g., eating); spending hours sitting in one place without doing anything except thinking about how bad everything is can easily pass as “just the way I am” before long periods – even years-of these behaviors have occurred over time and becomes part of your identity.
