Ketamine has been used as a form of anesthetic medication for over 60 years, and at high doses sedates patients and can help control pain. More recently, it has been determined that ketamine can also help with treatment-resistant psychiatric problems.
Ketamine infusion therapy is a groundbreaking modern approach to treating depression and other mood or anxiety disorders. It’s an off-label treatment, which means it doesn’t have FDA approval, but in the skilled hands of the physicians at KetaMind Ra’anana, ketamine infusion therapy is safe and effective.
Depression and anxiety disorders are common, debilitating illnesses that can severely impact the quality of life. Many patients who have these disorders improve when treated with a combination of medication and psychotherapy. Unfortunately, some people find that despite trying many different types of therapies, they still don’t feel much better. It is now known that such “treatment-resistant” disorders can respond to ketamine infusion therapy, offering an alternative to patients who have not responded to traditional treatments.
Ketamine infusion therapy is the most effective way of delivering ketamine into your bloodstream through an intravenous line (IV).
