What is ketamine?

Ketamine is a drug traditionally used by doctors as an anesthetic to sedate patients before surgical procedures. Classified as a dissociative anesthetic, it causes a sleep-like state and sense of detachment used in this setting. 

Ketamine has also been shown to effectively treat mood disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression that have not responded to traditional medications and treatments.

How does ketamine treat mood disorders?

Ketamine affects neurotransmitters in the brain that help regulate mood and emotion, including dopamine and glutamate. Within hours of administration, it can alleviate debilitating mood order symptoms.

Ketamine has also been shown to promote neural connection growth, improving overall brain function and increasing resilience. 

Can ketamine treat chronic pain?

In addition to mood disorders, ketamine can help treat chronic pain. It blocks pain receptors in the brain and spinal cord, offering significant pain relief for many. 

It may also provide relief by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow. Ketamine is an excellent option for people suffering from conditions like fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, and complex regional pain syndrome.

How does ketamine treatment work?

League Health Urgent & Primary Care delivers ketamine treatment via a small catheter IV inserted into the arm. Administered on-site while you recline in a comfortable chair, ketamine infusions usually take about 40 minutes.

During treatment, you may experience a sense of detachment from your surroundings or enter a dreamlike state. These feelings typically subside quickly after treatment, but to ensure your safety, your team observes for a short period before discharging you from the clinic.

You will need to arrange a ride home after your treatment. It’s important that you don’t drive, operate heavy machinery, or make any important decisions for the rest of the day. If possible, keep someone you trust with you throughout the day to monitor your state of mind. 

If you struggle with a mood disorder that has not responded well to traditional antidepressants or you suffer from chronic pain, ketamine treatment may be right for you. Call the office or book an appointment online today to learn more about ketamine treatment from the compassionate team.
