Ketamine Infusions for Anxiety Treatment
Over the past 50 years, ketamine has gone from a powerful anesthetic to a prominent alternative for antidepressants. What was once used as a sedative on the battlefield has become an invaluable resource for various physical and mental issues, known both for its transformative power and speedy results.
Traditional medications like antidepressants can take months to start working. Ketamine therapy, on the other hand, offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.
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.
