Ketamine: A New Hope in Depression Treatment
At low, therapeutic doses, ketamine produces shifts in consciousness that can help neurons rebuild lost connections allowing individuals to view their own patterned behavior with a renewed clarity, broaden awareness, and suppress networks in the brain responsible for producing persistent and obstructive thoughts.
Backed by Evidence
The well-known “Yale Protocol” laid the groundwork in demonstrating the healing power that ketamine possesses in relieving major symptoms of depression and anxiety. Over the past decade, ketamine’s popularity and profile has risen through national spotlights driven by studies that examine its ability to treat depression.
Tripsitter Clinic’s program of physician-directed, therapeutic ketamine can help bring about that crucial breakthrough that is essential to setting you on an upward path of progress. Ketamine therapy has been an especially powerful clinical tool in providing immediate and sustained relief for those with treatment resistant depression, defined as an inadequate response to at least one antidepressant medication.
For those who respond to ketamine therapy, treatment has been shown to rapidly reduce severe symptoms of depression compared to a host of traditional and alternative treatments (antidepressant medications, talk therapy, electroconvulsive therapy), which can take weeks or months before demonstrating any efficacy.
Striving Towards Overall Wellness
Every patient has a unique relationship to their depression and thus, must work with their primary care physician to arrive at the right mix of treatments in order to curb the symptoms of severe depression and set forth on a path towards overall wellness. As you embark on your treatment plan with Tripsitter Clinic, a licensed physician will evaluate your medical history, current medications you are taking, your struggle with depression, and discuss your goals for treatment.
