About Ketamine
For more than 50 years, ketamine has been safely administered to induce anesthesia on the battlefield, in emergency rooms,  and in surgical settings.  In recent years, ketamine has been used off-label to successfully treat depression, mood disorders, and chronic pain.
 

"About 80% of people who were prescribed ketamine showed relief from depressive symptoms. The benefits discovered placed ketamine in the World Health Organization's list of essential medicines, which encourages its use far and wide."

Ketamine for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Researchers studying the biological foundations of  PTSD have found “mounting evidence for a role of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in stress responsiveness, the formation of traumatic memories, and the pathophysiology of PTSD. Ketamine treatment targets these biological elements. In a double-blind study, scientists found that ketamine infusion therapy "rapidly and significantly reduces symptom severity in patients with  PTSD compared with midazolam."

"One likely target for ketamine is NMDA receptors in the brain. By binding to these receptors, ketamine appears to increase the amount of a neurotransmitter called glutamate in the spaces between neurons. Glutamate then activates connections in another receptor, called the AMPA receptor..."

"Ketamine-mediated synaptic plasticity changes appear to occur within a matter of hours after ketamine administration. “The current thinking is that eventually, 6 to 12 weeks after initiating treatment with traditional antidepressants, dendritic growth and increased synaptic connections occur but with ketamine, these can occur within 24 hours of the infusion,” Dr Masand said..."

Ketamine for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

A recent study of the effect of ketamine on OCD patients showed that they "reported dramatic decreases in their obsessive-compulsive symptoms midway through a 40-minute infusion," and that at least half of those patients reported that their obsessive-compulsive symptoms were diminished the following week. We recommend six 40-minute treatments over two to three weeks for a maximum effect. One patient in the study reported that, after ketamine therapy, “I tried to have OCD thoughts, but I couldn’t.”

Ketamine for Bipolar Disorder

Individuals suffering from bipolar disorder frequently try to find relief from their symptoms in the depressive phases of the illness. In a recent study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, scientists demonstrated that "40 minutes after receiving ketamine, [patients'] depressive symptoms lessened significantly."  This dramatic change resulted from a single intravenous infusion of ketamine, which is an NMDA (glutamate) receptor antagonist. We recommend six 40-minute treatments over two to three weeks to ensure that improvement lasts for the maximum possible time before you need a booster dose.
