What is Ketamine Injection Therapy?
The substance used in Ketamine injection therapy has been around since the early 1960s. However, the substance was authorized by the government for use in 1970 for soldiers injured during the Vietnam War. Depending on the dose size, this drug can help sedate a person or numb them to their senses. It allows a person to detach from their environment and the pain they are experiencing.
This substance is frequently used as an anesthetic. A person can receive it intravenously, intramuscularly, or orally. If it isn’t being utilized as an anesthetic, the substance blocks pain signals from the brain. Infusion therapy also has been found to have antidepressant effects and may be helpful. If the person has a positive response to infusion therapy, it can rapidly reduce suicidality (life-threatening thoughts and acts) and relieve the other serious symptoms of depression. If the patient struggles with depression combined with anxiety, it is a great treatment method.
The U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) categorizes this substance in a Schedule III class. This label allows the doctors to use it for medical purposes and prescribe a certain amount to the patients.
Injection Infusion Therapy
This drug, Ketamine, works expeditiously faster when compared to any painkiller or antidepressant medication out there. For those who suffer from anxiety, PTSD, or treatment-resistant depression, it can truly be a lifesaver.
You will receive Ketamine infusion therapy via a slow intravenous (IV) drip. You quickly will experience the therapy’s calming and extremely therapeutic effects in your brain’s regions responsible for controlling your behavior, mood, and feeling pain.
Because infusion therapy has rapid-acting anesthetic properties, you will benefit the moment it enters your bloodstream. Patients experiencing an intense depressive episode, anxiety, panic attack, chronic pain, or suicidal thoughts will benefit greatly from the therapy’s instant and lasting relief.
