“Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.” Thomas Insel Director, National Institute of Mental Health
There is evidence that ketamine can aid in the treatment of several disorders. At Integrated Pain Solutions, we use ketamine to aid in the treatment of depression, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and chronic pain.
Ketamine helps treat the following symptoms: inability to feel pleasure, anxiety, insomnia or excessive sleep, irritability, difficulty concentrating and making decisions, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, thoughts of suicide, social avoidance, feelings of sadness or emptiness, and fatigue.
The treatment of these symptoms ultimately improves a person’s daily function, and overall quality of life.
