Ketamine has come a long way in the world of therapeutics since its inception and reputation on the party scene.
Many patients are finding incredible benefit for their treatment resistant depression by coming in to the clinical setting and receiving IV Ketamine infusions.
Keep reading to discover how Ketamine relieves depression for many when other medications and prescriptions had no effect on their condition.
How Does Ketamine Relieve Depression Symptoms?
Scientific research suggests that by blocking the NMDA receptors, ketamine prompts the brain to increase the production of synaptic signaling proteins in the prefrontal cortex.
The prefrontal cortex is the region of the brain thought to play a critical role in a person’s ability to regulate his/her mood.
Ketamine appears to promote the growth of new synapses in the prefrontal cortex, resulting in greater connectivity in the brain, while also switching certain connections on and off.
This cascade of events is thought to be the reason for the rapid anti-depressant effect.
How Long Does The Relief Last?
The duration of symptomatic relief patients experience following ketamine infusion therapy varies greatly.
Patients who have received ketamine infusion therapy for depression have reported significant improvements in their mood and abilities to function anywhere from days to weeks.
When patients do experience such relief, it may be the first time in decades that they have felt healthy and ‘normal’.
