Ketamine is an anesthetic medication that is now used for treating depression and other conditions. We provide ketamine infusion services for depression which has not responded to other treatments. Although not currently FDA approved for the treatment of depression, intravenous ketamine treatment of depression is supported by over a decade of scientific research. Working through a different mechanism than typical antidepressants, ketamine provides far more rapid results than traditional treatments. Not everyone responds to ketamine, but many patients report improvement within hours to days of beginning treatment.
Esketamine (Spravato™), an intranasal medication related to ketamine, was recently approved by the FDA for treatment-resistant depression.
An evaluation in the office is required before approval for ketamine treatment, even if you have received ketamine treatments somewhere else in the past.
