Chrysalis Ketamine's IV therapy has been designed to support patients dealing with OCD, where other, more traditional, treatments have failed. According to data from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the lifetime prevalence of OCD among U.S. adults stands at 2.3%, with over half of these cases falling under the category of ‘serious impairment’. Dr. Karpanian, of Chrysalis Ketamine, reports a 40% success rate in OCD patients utilizing ketamine therapy to overcome their obsessions and compulsions so it could help you too!

The Rapid Action of Ketamine

According to a study by the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, many conventional OCD treatments take between 8-12 weeks to start working. Ketamine, however, is known for having rapid onset anti-depressant effects, providing you with almost instantaneous relief from your symptoms. A recent study showed that OCD scores declined by 49.7% in the first hour following IV ketamine administration, demonstrating its effectiveness in treating obsessive thoughts and behaviors.

So how does it work?

Ketamine therapy works by boosting the activity of glutamate in the brain. This neurotransmitter is responsible for healthy brain function, helping to regulate mood, learning and memory. Dr. Karpanian explains how a glutamate deficiency can increase the likelihood of developing a mood disorder, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, and recommends glutamate-boosting ketamine therapy, in conjunction with healthy lifestyle changes, to obtain the best results.

“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,” he says. “This is remarkably different from conventional antidepressants, which ultimately boost serotonin activity levels in several different brain areas to ultimately affect glutamate. “
