What Does Ketamine Treat?

  • Depression
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • Anxiety
  • Pain
  • CRPS
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorders)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cluster Headaches
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Migraine Headaches
  • PTSD
  • For Mindfulness, hypnosis, guided imagery

How is Ketamine Administered?

  • Generally Intravenously over the course of 45-55 minutes. This gives an exact, effective dose that bypasses the liver and goes to the brain, where it is needed. This is a more effective way to initial treatment.
  • Intranasal Ketamine : A home-based nasal spray is available for treatment of depression, anxiety, pain, and PTSD.
  • Nebulized Ketamine through a standard nebulizer.

How does Ketamine work?

  • Ketamine acts, in part, as an antagonist at the NMDA receptors, which are overly stimulated in depression. It also causes neuroplasticity, in which dendrites on neurons can reform to cause a brain 'reset' in which new connections can be made.
  • Ketamine causes the release of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) which allows the process of neuroplasticity.
  • This is an immediate effect of Ketamine infusions.

Do I need a referral?

  • You do not need a referral for Ketamine Infusions. Certainly background information of prior treatments is helpful.

Is there anything that excludes me from this treatment?

  • Medical issues such as active liver, heart disease, and uncontrolled blood pressure are concerns that may require a more in-depth clearance.

  • Bring a head set and your own music, preferably ambient, soothing music.
  • Try to frame the infusion in a positive context. If someone is going to accompany you, they may sit with you.
  • If there are bothersome thoughts you wish to deal with, consider using the infusions as a way of therapy to package the thoughts into a better light.

What are the chances for improvement of depression?

  • About 70% of  patients have >50% recovery of symptoms.
  • Improvement may come after the first infusion or by the third infusion. Many will see incremental improvements in various domains of their life, such as less depression, more motivation, better concentration, less pain, less agitation, or other benefits.

How long do the results last?

  • That can be variable. Many have enduring responses for several months, but some require monthly or periodic enhancement infusions.
  • We do supply a home based ketamine nasal spray to increase the duration of  response.

Do you provide home-based Ketamine spray?

  • Yes. We can initiate therapy with home based spray. This can be effective for many as a stand-alone treatment, but we recommend the infusions first for more rapid and larger effects
  • Nasal spray therapy can be initiated first without infusions, but it takes longer to become effective and is best used in maintenance therapy.
  • Nasal spray Ketamine  is a useful strategy in patients with needle phobias.

Are There side-effects to the nasal spray?

  • Burning in the nose, congestion, and dizziness are the primary concerns.
  • Bladder issues are unlikely but are monitored.
  • You are not to drive for 4 hours after using the nasal spray.
  • Nasal spray ketamine does not create as strong psychomimetic effects as does the infusion.

  • This is always a possibility, but we do have additional add-on therapies to maximize response, including the use of magnesium, scopolamine infusions, scopolamine and beta-blocker mixtures, and dextromethrophan therapies for these cases. These work very well with Ketamine and are very helpful in anxiety and depression.

Ketamine Infusion Center for Depression

Depression is the Leading cause of disability in people between the ages of 15 –44. Major depression is a common debilitating disorder affecting 10%–15% of the population per year. Despite advances in the understanding of the psychopharmacology and biomarkers of major depression and the introduction of several novel classes of antidepressants, only 60%–70% of patients with depression respond to antidepressant therapy. Of those who do not respond, 10%–30% exhibit treatment-resistant symptoms coupled with difficulties in social and occupational function, decline of physical health, suicidal thoughts, and increased health care utilization. According to the findings from the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) study, 50%–66% of patients with depression do not recover fully on an antidepressant medication and one-third of patients do have a remission of their depressive symptoms.

A woman in need of Ketamine Therapy in Virginia

Scientists think that in people with clinical depression, certain neurotransmitters may be out of balance. One option for treating depression is prescription drugs that affect the levels of certain chemicals that brain cells use to communicate, called neurotransmitters. These options are sometimes called antidepressant medications. Some types of antidepressant medications that are available include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). These medications affect levels of serotonin, among other neurotransmitters to produce their effect. Other options for treatment include psychotherapy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), and ECT (Electroconvulsive therapy) .

Despite these advances, many therapies do not work well in a significant percentage of the population and produce their effectiveness very slowly. In a landmark 2000 study published in Biological Psychiatry, Robert Berman and colleagues at the Yale School of Medicine demonstrated that ketamine had quick-action anti-depressant properties on people with treatment-resistant depression. Further investigations by Carlos Zarate a single infusion of Ketamine produced robust improvement in depression in 71% of the test subjects and remission in 29%. Further work by Carlos Zarate using Ketamine was showcased in the JAMA 2017 article in which the Ketamine experience of rapid anti-depressant effects was reviewed in an interview.

Ketamine has produced rapid reductions in depression in treatment refractory patients in numerous studies and has performed well when other interventions had minimal impact. This has been experienced in our ketamine center as well.

Ketamine Therapies for Anxiety and PTSD

Demographics of Anxiety Disorders

  • Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.
  • Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
  • People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.
  • Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.
  • General Anxiety Disorder affects 6.8 million adults, or 3.1% of the U.S. population, yet only 43.2% are receiving treatment. Women are affected more than men, and GAD often co-occurs with depression.
The continual suffering from anxiety and social phobias results in lost days at work, less life satisfaction, depression, suicidal thoughts, and addiction in many. Alcohol and opioids can become a social lubricant allowing one to cope with the struggles of the day-to-day panic attacks and stress. For others, the constant need for medications to treat the disorder that seems to still push through can be disabling.

We have found that Ketamine infusions and treatment with other off-label approaches can help significantly reduce symptoms of anxiety, social phobia, and depression. Periodic infusions can be used to maintain effectiveness after the initial successful therapies. We do like to evaluate patient's biochemistry and genetic profiles in more integrative ways to suggest nutraceutical and nootropic options to lessen symptoms. In some, home prescriptions of intranasal or oral ketamine with oxytocin has been an effective strategy, while in others, IV vitamin therapies with additional micronutrient treatment has made a significant change in patient’s stress and anxiety. We do investigate methylation issues in your genetics to determine more integrative ways to manage the formation of dopamine (the reward molecule) and serotonin levels (the happiness molecule) that can make you feel better. These same strategies are effective for aiding your sleep patterns as well – insomnia goes hand in hand with anxiety and depression. We are able to help you manage all of these issues.
