So, how does ketamine infusion therapy help people living with depression? Ketamine’s initial treatment was as an anesthetic, starting in the 1960s. But, as time passed, it was recognized that ketamine, when used as a low-dose therapy, can help to combat a number of medical and psychiatric issues and not just for anesthetic purposes. Essentially, it’s believed that ketamine, when administered in low doses, helps to stimulate the clearing of proteins built up in the brain that can lead to a number of symptoms.
While individuals who have bipolar disorder with depression cannot take traditional antidepressants, recent studies have indicated that therapeutic IV Ketamine infusions can help. Ketamine is a powerful anesthetic that is well-tolerated in almost all patients who take it.
When administered at a sub-anesthetic level, Ketamine has a powerful, fast-acting antidepressant effect. Ketamine’s properties through H N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonism help to reset brain function, bringing individuals who receive the treatment back to a normal mood baseline, before they ever felt depressed.
