Ketamine Compounding Pharmacy
Ketamine has been successfully used as an anesthetic for more than half a century. But in recent years, the medical community has increasingly accepted the role of ketamine in treating the symptoms of anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, and PTSD. Ketamine therapy in capsule and other forms has shown to provide rapid relief from the symptoms of anxiety and depression in patients who did not respond well to the regular depression medications.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
WHO has Recognized Ketamine as an Essential Drug
The World Health Organization, which is the premier arm of the United Nations to address healthcare issues worldwide, has listed ketamine as an “essential drug” in the category of anesthetics. Ketamine may be delivered in capsule or other oral forms, nasal spray form, and as intravenous (IV) therapy. Some other drugs may be combined with ketamine to treat the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Healing Benefits of Ketamine for Mental Health
- Ketamine will improve the symptoms of depression without causing the side effects that are usually associated with conventional anti-depressants.
- Ketamine provides relief from the feelings of stress and anxiety and can be used independently or with other supplementary drugs.
- Bi-polar disorder symptoms, severe mood swings, and pain-related depressive symptoms can be corrected with ketamine therapy.
- Patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are known to benefit from ketamine treatments.
- Some patients may start becoming dependent on alcohol or drugs to fight depression. Ketamine can help these patients recover by alleviating depression symptoms.
Treating Mood Disorders, Depression and Suicidal Thoughts
The use of ketamine to treat mood disorders, depression, and suicidal thoughts has increased in recent years because of the successful results reported by the patients and doctors.
Some research studies have shown an efficacy rate of about 75 percent or more with ketamine in treating these conditions. Research in this area has been led by world renowned institutions, such as the National Institutes of Mental Health, The Black Dog Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital and Yale University.
Research published in the American Journal of Psychiatry revealed that ketamine therapy can provide patients of depression with freedom from suicidal thoughts within a matter of hours. The rapidity of results with ketamine was shown to be much higher than other traditional medications. This research was carried out by the New York Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University involving 80 patients who were diagnosed with clinical depression.
These patients were experiencing suicidal thoughts as one of the symptoms of depression. The participants were treated with ketamine therapy, and most of them reported significant favorable improvements in symptoms within 24 hours (compared to other participants who were treated with conventional anti-depressants such as midazolam).
This study has added more strength to the growing body of research which indicates ketamine as a successful treatment to manage symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. AIP provides advanced compounding pharmacy solutions, including online prescription refills for patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
