Ketamine Infusion Treatments

 

Ketamine for Treatment-Resistant Depression 

Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is a term most commonly used in clinical psychiatry to describe cases of depressive disorders, such as Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorders, that do not respond adequately to at least two antidepressants.

In the last 20 years, research has consistently shown that low doses of ketamine, administered intravenously, can rapidly relieve depressive symptoms in patients whose depression has been otherwise untreatable.

Ketamine vs ECT: Which Is Best For Resistant Depression

ECT feels about as good as it sounds. Usually, this therapy consists of a patient receiving brief electrical pulses or shocks over the scalp while thankfully being completely under anesthesia, usually every other day for a week or two.

But what more and more patients and clinicians are coming to discover is that Ketamine infusions are showing lots of promise as the go-to therapy to treatment-resistant depression.

Read on to discover the differences and benefits of ECT and Ketamine infusions as they pertain to improving or curing treatment-resistant depression.
