Ketamine Therapy for

Treatment-Resistant Depression

While traditional treatments can be effective for many individuals, some may experience treatment-resistant depression, where symptoms persist despite trying multiple interventions. In these cases, Ketamine therapy may offer a promising alternative.

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that has shown remarkable efficacy in rapidly alleviating symptoms of depression, including suicidal ideation. When administered intravenously (IV) in controlled, sub-anesthetic doses, Ketamine can modulate glutamate levels in the brain, leading to rapid and profound improvements in mood and overall well-being.
