“I had no sense of purpose. After only two treatments, I’m finally getting my life back and have a significant decrease in pain.”
Gina suffers from fibromyalgia, a chronic muscular disorder that leaves her in pain, depressed and unable to live her life to fullest. Ketamine treatments helped Gina take control of her life again. Watch to learn how Gina is doing after she sought help from the medical professionals at Pacific Ketamine Institute. Individual results may vary.
I had happened to come across Pacific Ketamine Institute by chance, but it was a miracle really. I didn’t know that ketamine was offered in Southern California area. Prior to having the treatments, I have fibromyalgia, the pain was really bad. Depression was really bad. I would say with feeling no sense of purpose and feeling it was hard to go on. Since I’ve only had two treatments, I feel a lot more functional, more enthused about work and my family, and feeling like I’m getting my life back. That’s after two treatments, and a significant decrease in pain.
I agree. It’s like getting my wife back after so long of the depression and the pain. It’s wonderful. I’m hoping for the long term results that really sticks in and really keeps her where she is now. I really appreciate it.
Thank you. Yes, thank you.
Treating depression is often a non-linear path. Most of our patients have been through years of trying one medication after another, and often times from doctors who don’t talk to each other.
You’ve been advised by your doctor to try an SSRI (or have tried several already) to treat your depression. It takes 6-8 weeks to see if it works. The side effects are terrible and work immediately. After a few months, you realize that you feel terrible still, and are frustrated that you wasted months with a drug that was intended to make you feel better, but it made you feel worse. Did you know that SSRIs only work 20% more than a placebo? For everyone else, they don’t work. But the side effects are debilitating.
Unlike SSRIs or SNRIs that take weeks to see if they work, most of our patients feel immediate relief from their depression the first day that they do their initial ketamine treatment. In some cases, it takes 2-3 treatments for the benefits to kick in, but in over 85% of our patients who have used IV Ketamine as their modality to treat depression, they see a major improvement in their quality of life and relief from their depression and pain.
85% success rate and it works immediately. Sounds much better than the alternative, doesn’t it?
