Ketamine: the antidepressant alternative

According to a study by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 21 million U.S. adults will suffer from major depression at some point in their lifetime. This number equates to 8.3% of the American population, with the highest prevalence amongst 18-25-year-olds. As such, Chrysalis Ketamine is offering ketamine IV infusions to help you treat the symptoms of depression, most notably where other, more traditional, forms of medication have failed.

As explained by Dr. Karpanian of Chrysalis Ketamine, both major depression and persistent depressive disorder can bring about several debilitating symptoms. Whereas major depression tends to cause more severe symptoms, persistent depressive disorder is usually more long-lasting, causing symptoms to linger for years. Symptoms of both conditions can include feelings of hopelessness, frequent bouts of tears, irritability, fatigue, and more.

So how does it work?

To treat the symptoms of depression, Chrysalis Ketamine offers ketamine infusion therapy to rapidly boost the activity of glutamate in the brain. “The promptness of ketamine in yielding an antidepressant effect occurs because this drug bypasses the conventional serotonin path and goes straight to switching on glutamate,” explains Dr. Karpanian. Unlike conventional SSRIs, which can take weeks to work, this method is known for providing almost instantaneous relief from your symptoms.

Due to the neuroplasticity of the brain, ketamine can rapidly reform your brain cell connections, promoting improved memory, thinking, and mood. “Ketamine consistently works within a few hours and the effects of one treatment can last days to weeks, says Dr. Karpanian. “During this time, it enhances the ability to form new neural connections and new neural patterns.”

When undergoing ketamine IV therapy, it is best practice to combine your treatment with regular talk therapy to enhance healing. Often referred to as ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP), this innovative approach to treatment enables you to process your emotions, thus increasing ketamine’s antidepressant effects.

A satisfied customer said: “I highly recommend Dr. Karpanian if you're seeking transformative care in a serene and supportive setting. He also set me up with a coach who spoke with me before and after the ketamine session who was outstanding as well. She really helped me better understand some of what came up during the infusion. From start to finish, the entire experience was everything I could have hoped for!”
