Ketamine for Depression Treatment

Since the 1960s, ketamine has been one of the most widely used drugs around the world. However, doctors are just now discovering the positive effects ketamine can have on those who suffer from major depressive disorders.

How Does Ketamine Help With Depression Treatment?

Unlike other traditional treatments: SSRI’s and other natural depression treatments, ketamine works fast. Many patients report feeling better within several hours of their very first ketamine Infusion.

In addition to the fast response rate, ketamine has been shown to help treatment-resistant depression patients as well. Around 80% of those who have utilized Ketamine for Depression Treatment has reported a positive response to the treatments.

What are the different types of depression?

Depression itself varies greatly from case to case. Some people may suffer from persistent depression, while others may only get it temporarily or episodically. There is a litany of different versions of depression, each with their own symptoms and triggers.

Some of the typical diagnoses of depressive disorders may include:

  • Major Depressive Disorder (MDD): Also known as Clinical Depression or Unipolar Depression. The most common form of depression. It can be just a single episode, but some people may experience it periodically throughout their lives.
  • Postpartum Depression: A type of depression usually brought on by the hormonal shifts women experience the months or year following childbirth.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):  Depression caused by a change in the circadian rhythm of the body, usually bringing on depression during a specific season of the year.
  • Situational Depression: While the symptoms are much like Major Depressive Disorder, this is depression brought on by a specific event, such as the death of a loved one or a life-threatening event.
  • Persistent Depression: Also known as dysthymia or chronic depression, this is depression that lasts for two years or more.
  • Manic Depression/Bipolar Disorder: Characterized by periods of mania alternating with periods of intense depression.
