Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine is an anesthetic that was once used mainly on the battlefield. It has emerged to be a promising treatment for treatment-resistant depression, major depression disorder, and several chronic pain conditions. Esketamine, an intranasal ketamine spray, is FDA approved for the treatment of treatment-resistant depression and for depressive symptoms in adults with major depressive disorder with suicidal thoughts or actions. Studies have demonstrated that a sub-anesthetic dose of ketamine can induce rapid and sustained antidepressant actions in treatment-resistant patients. Ketamine for the treatment of depression is unique as it induces rapid antidepressant effects unlike the delayed effect of currently approved anti-depression medications.
