Ketamine Depression

Depression

Clinically-proven Depression treatment! The symptoms of Depression can place a massive burden on a patient and their family.

Ketamine infusions offer hope for a major reduction in your depression symptoms.

In the last 7-10 years, dozens of Ketamine research studies have shown promising results for the treatment of treatment resistant depression (TRD). Even in the most difficult-to-treat cases, Ketamine can be successful up to 80% of the time. Ketamine is currently the only fast-acting treatment proven to reduce the symptoms of even the most severe forms of depression.

Depression patients should plan on a series of six infusion over two to three weeks. Partial relief is generally noted between the 1st and 4th infusion. After the initial series, most people need a one-time monthly booster. Over time, most patients are able to extend the time between infusions.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression affects up to 15% of mothers. The negative effects on child development are well-established. Previously, the only two treatment options were psychotherapy and anti-depressants. Neither option was very effective and took weeks to take effect. Families were also faced with exposing the infant to anti-depressants through breastmilk. THANKFULLY, there is now a FAST-ACTING option.

Unlike conventional anti-depressants that take weeks to take effect, Ketamine infusions are RAPID ACTING. And since they work so fast, breastfeeding can continue between infusions. Zulresso (brexanolone) was approved to treat post-partum depression in 2019. This infusion is SIXTY HOURS (2.5 days)! The infusion causes excessive sedation and the mother must be continuously monitored throughout… which likely means re-admission into a hospital. During this time, someone else has to care for the infant. Breastfeeding and bonding are significantly interrupted. The total estimated cost is $38,750.

Ketamine infusions are around $395 per infusion and most people obtain relief around the 4th infusion. Mom is only away from her baby for two hours at a time. And Ketamine is actually the preferred procedure drug for pediatrics… so it has been safely used in thousands of children. This means Mom can continue breastfeeding.

Ketamine for Postpartum Depression
Ketamine for PTSD

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a chronic and often disabling condition. Initial research has shown that glutamate plays a major role in the stress response. Ketamine acts as inhibitor of glutamate. Research has been published which indicates even a single Ketamine infusion administered for the treatment of PTSD can rapidly and effectively reduce symptoms. Literature has shown that a single 45-minute Ketamine Infusion can produce rapid reductions in PTSD symptoms as measured by the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale. It is recommended to plan on a series of 6 infusions over two to three weeks for extended effects. Unlike depression, PTSD symptoms seem to improve after the initial series. Most of our PTSD patients rarely need a booster, but if they do a one-time infusion every 4-6six months is effective.

Chronic Pain

Ketamine is most effective with neuropathic pain like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, post-herpetic neuralgia (shingles) and phantom limb pain. We often hear that it is “life-saving.” It has also shown promise with non-neuropathic pain conditions like fibromyalgia. Chronic pain is a complex condition. Therefore, we require a referral from your pain management team or CRPS specialist. If you are transferring here from another area, we will accept records from your other ketamine and pain clinic until you can establish with a local pain management clinic. We do know that Dr Romanik and Dr Pupiales are area pain specialists that are familiar with the benefits of Ketamine and will refer their patients for Ketamine infusions when medically appropriate based on their professional judgment.

Anxiety

Most of the time, patients with anxiety disorders are treated with an antidepressant and/or benzodiazepine. Unfortunately, 30-40% will not achieve remission with conventional treatments. Also benzodiazepines cause drowsiness and are physically addictive, making them poor options for routine use. For the non-responder, there are currently no good options except for possibly Ketamine. Evidence for the use of Ketamine is accumulating for an array of anxiety disorders, including general anxiety disorder (GAD) and social anxiety disorder (SAD). we require a referral from your pain management team or CRPS specialist. If you are transferring here from another area, we will accept records from your other ketamine and pain clinic until you can establish with a local pain management clinic.

What to Expect Infusion ABQ

What to Expect

Ketamine infusions should be a part of a comprehensive treatment plan. For all patients, your overall mental health care must be directed by a primary care or mental health provider. We have found that many providers are not familiar with the amazing benefits of ketamine therapy or actively resist it. Therefore, a referral is not always required.

However, we do require that all patients schedule a history and physical exam with our Certified Nurse Practitioner prior to your first Ketamine Infusion. This exam determines if you are a candidate for ketamine and assesses if you have any health conditions that make Ketamine unsafe. These conditions include, uncontrolled hypertension, increased intracranial pressure, heart failure, and allergy to Ketamine.

We are happy to meet with you to answer your questions about whether ketamine is a good fit for you. Just schedule a free consult.
