KETAMINE: A Story that Changed Lives

KETAMINE: A Story that Changed Lives

Ketamine is one of the most widely used and safest anesthetics in the world according to the World Health Organization who list it as an essential medicine.  Researchers at Yale have been studying low-dose ketamine since 2000 in controlled clinic settings for patients with severe depressions unresponsive to other antidepressants. 

The results have been dramatic: In several studies, more than half show a significant decrease in depression symptoms in 24 hours. Overall, around 4 out of 5 went on to find significant improvement. Ketamine is now extensively used for difficult-to-treat depression, anxiety, anxious bipolar depression, PTSD, OCD, and chronic pain. Ketamine is a great, safe and effective drug

Ketamine for Pain

“It’s clear that ketamine IV makes sense for pain – that’s what it was designed to do,” Dr. Reginald Richardson MD.

Traditional medication treatments include antidepressants, anti-epileptics, and opioids. Treatment is often based on a trial-and-error approach. Only 30 to 40% of patients experience adequate to good pain relief from these methods.

Dozens of clinical trials have shown IV ketamine (intravenous ketamine) is effective for treatment-resistant chronic pain syndromes, especially different forms of neuropathic pain and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Ketamine for Depression

The NIMH estimates that in the United States, 16 million adults had at least one major depressive episode in 2012. That’s 6.9% of the population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. In fact, it is a leading cause of disability.

Ketamine is not a cure for depression and does require ongoing maintenance treatments once stabilized. However, because of this physiologic change, many patients can feel improvement in as little as 1 – 2 treatments. It is absolutely possible for Ketamine patients, in conjunction with psychological support and other integrated wellness programs, to experience a life with little to no depression symptoms.

Ketamine IV Offers Rapid Relief from Suicidal Thoughts

Ketamine’s anti-suicidal effect appears to come from its unique ability to work in several different ways at the same time. Research continues to uncover the exact mechanism of ketamine. In the process, this research is helping us make significant new strides towards understanding more about depression and suicidality itself.
