Ketamine Infusions for Anxiety Treatment
How Does Ketamine Help Treat Anxiety?
Scientific research has highlighted ketamine’s unique ability to treat anxiety and other mood disorders. There is still much to be understood about how exactly ketamine works on the brain. Scientists tend to focus on ketamine’s effect on glutamate, a neurotransmitter associated with memory, learning, and mood regulation found throughout the central nervous system.
Most current research shows ketamine has an excitatory effect on glutamate. The heightened glutamate activity allows new pathways to form. These new formations correlate with reduced stress, an increased ability to process information, and improved mood regulation.
Many researchers are considering that the positive effects of many antidepressants may be a result of regulating glutamate, although less directly than ketamine. Because of this indirect process, SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants often take weeks to start improving symptoms of anxiety, if they do at all. Ketamine often produces results and relief from anxiety symptoms during the first session.
