Ketamine has been shown to be effective in treating symptoms of depression.
Ketamine treatments are reported to have antidepressant effects identifiable at 4 hours post-Ketamine infusion and that persisted at a 72-hour assessment with the response and remission rates with one day post treatment at 71% and 29% respectively utilizing infusions.
Depending on patient and severity of condition the antidepressant benefits were apparent at 40 minutes and can peak at day 1 with the need to pursue treatment continuously. Ketamine improves the cell signaling in the brain and helps reverse brain atrophy (shrinking) that is seen in depression patients.
Many find relief of symptoms after just one infusion with lasting effects for weeks to months after completing the initial series. Boosters can be required after the initial series depending on your results and for continued control of symptoms.
