Ketamine is a prescription drug and general anesthetic. It is used in powder and liquid form to induce a state of dissociation but is now being used to relieve symptoms of PTSD and depression. At lower doses, ketamine can help ease pain and may also be effective for easing symptoms of depression.
At lower doses, ketamine is administered either intravenously or via a nasal mist. Results are varied but many patients report positive effects after a few sessions or treatments because ketamine works more rapidly than antidepressant medication.
Ketamine for PTSD and Depression
Ketamine offers new hope for treatment-resistant PTSD symptoms and depression. Many people suffering from PTSD and depression have already tried pharmaceutical drugs and alternative therapies to alleviate symptoms. Unfortunately, some simply do not respond positively to these treatments.
Ketamine works in unique ways to combat PTSD and depression symptoms. It works by resetting brain circuitry by blocking glutamine receptors in the brain and enhancing synaptic connectivity in the brain. This provides relief for many people suffering from PTSD. It may also help with alleviating stress and depression.
Ketamine Dosages at American Integrative Pharmacy
Your physician will determine the appropriate amount of ketamine based on your symptoms and medical history. They will explain the dosing process, what to expect during treatment, and potential side effects. Your dosage may increase or decrease over time, depending on how your body responds to initial treatment sessions. Everything is monitored closely and you may need to keep track of your symptoms for the days after treatment so we can monitor your progress.
Our goal is to work closely with you and your physician to develop the ideal treatment plan that will alleviate your symptoms while minimizing potential side effects.
