How Does Ketamine Help Treat OCD?
It is believed that one of the leading causes of OCD and other mood disorders is the overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps OCD by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the effects of OCD symptoms.
By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may be able to amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the empty space between neurons. Glutamate then interacts with the AMPA receptors.
Together, these receptors bring about the discharge of multiple molecules that boost the brain’s neuroplasticity – essentially, ketamine infusions allow the brain to reset and restore important nerve connections.
