HOW DOES KETAMINE WORK?
Ketamine infusion therapy essentially repairs neural damage in the brain, allowing new, healthy neural connections to form.
Ketamine works on the glutamate system, rather than on serotonin receptors, which is what traditional antidepressants work on.
Ketamine works when other treatments fail, and is effective for about 70% of patients—a much higher success rate than traditional antidepressants, which work about 40% of the time.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Ketamine infusion therapy works quickly, oftentimes delivering relief within 1-2 hours of the initial infusion.
Ketamine infusions are delivered over an initial period of two weeks, with most patients knowing whether ketamine will work for them after 1-2 infusions.
