Ketamine is was introduced in the 1960’s as an anesthetic drug. Subsequently, studies have shown that it has improved depressive symptoms and suicidal ideation. Today, more people are seeking alternative treatments to depression and chronic pain and have turned to Ketamine.
Its primary mechanism of action is inhibition of the NMDA receptor (in the neurons). However, it also acts on many other receptors including serotonin, dopaminergic, and glutamate receptors. It is thought that ketamine resets your receptors and heals synapses. Ketamine’s use in chronic pain and mood disorders, in low dose ,compared to anesthetic dose, is considered “off label” and not many providers understand its usefulness. The potential side effects of low dose ketamine are negligible and many people tolerate them well.
Ketamine infusion may help alleviate symptoms in many conditions, such as Treatment Resistant Depression, PTSD, OCD, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, FMS, and others.
