What is Ketamine?
Ketamine, a type of uncompetitive N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptor antagonist, has been shown to rapidly and significantly improve depression symptoms after just one dose at a sub-anesthetic level.
Neuroimaging studies have revealed a quick change in activity and connectivity within the prefrontal and striatal networks, which are considered key components of human learning and conditioning. In simpler terms, ketamine has the ability to rewire your brain.
How do Ketamine Infusions Work?
The most frequently used antidepressants operate by reducing the absorption of monoamines such as serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. This treatment for depression has two main disadvantages: the delayed onset of weeks or months and difficulty in responding to treatment.
Around sixty percent of patients who take medication for depression do not experience improvement.
Research has shown that a single dose of ketamine can provide quick relief, as early as 40 minutes after administration, and the effects can last for up to three days for up to 70% of patients. Furthermore, ketamine has been proven to facilitate positive changes in thinking by altering information processing.
