What Are The Benefits Of Ketamine Infusion Therapy For Depression?

Ketamine has the ability to go to work right away, unlike most antidepressants, which take weeks, sometimes months, to provide relief.

Ketamine’s potential as an antidepressant was recognized more than a decade ago. Ketamine Infusion Therapy works differently than commonly used antidepressants such as Prozac, Zoloft, and Effexor, which may explain why people who aren’t helped by standard treatments respond to ketamine when other medications don’t help.

Research suggests that depression can be attributed to losing certain neurons due to prolonged exposure to stress. Ketamine for depression focuses on activating certain neurotransmitter receptors and pathways which causes these neurons to re-grow.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ketamine Treatment

How is the infusion experience?
We check a set of baseline vital signs, such as your blood pressure, heart rate, oxygenation, and your weight. We start an intravenous (IV) line and begin the infusion, which takes about 45-60 minutes. During this time we keep the environment private, quiet, and relaxing. We do monitor you intermittently throughout the infusion. You may listen to your own choice of soothing music.

How long before it works?
Rarely, patients report an improvement in mood and general well-being after the first treatment. Most patients experience a more gradual outcome that occurs over the course of the treatments. We base our treatments on the latest research studies that recommend a series of 6 treatments to begin, and gauge response. The treatments are spread over a 2-3 week period.
How long do the effects of Ketamine last?
The duration of effect is very individual, and can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months, and beyond. Patients may require a booster infusion after that time, based on their response, and how they feel as time goes on.
Does insurance cover this?
Most insurance companies are still not covering the cost of the treatments, however, we recommend that patients contact their insurance company and discuss the possibility of coverage for Ketamine treatments. Our billing staff can work with you to provide the appropriate codes as needed. Individual insurance careers can vary in their coverage of Ketamine. Please note: we do not participate with, nor bill Medicare or Medicaid.
