What Is Ketamine Therapy
Ketamine is approved for use at high doses as an anesthetic in the operating room. Although not FDA approved, lower dose “sub-anesthetic” ketamine injections are used “off-label” to treat depression, pain, and other mental health/substance use disorders.
In recent times, there have been many factors contributing to increased depression across wide populations. There are several medications available for depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders which involve daily administration of a medication aimed at correction of neurochemical imbalances via action at specific brain receptors (e.g. serotonin, dopamine, mu opioid).
Effects of Ketamine
The treatment will put the patient into a “dissociative state”. Ketamine treatment produces a short-lived but intense subjective experience the mystical or peak experience, which triggers or elicits an afterglow, accompanied by a subsequent positive change in affect, insight, motivation, cognition, and behavior.
