Some of the highlights from this week's episode on Ketamine:

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is a schedule 3 dissociative anaesthetic, which has shown promising antidepressant effects that are both rapid and robust. It has been safely used for years as the ideal anaesthetic in hospitals and medical settings, as it works without suppressing the respiratory function. At lower doses, it can cause an altered perception of sight and sound, pain relief, and dissociative states, similar to an out of body experience. When used under medical supervision, studies have shown ketamine infusions to have significant effects in healing treatment-resistant depression

The Reputation of Ketamine

Taylor discusses the reputation of Ketamine and how it is wildly known as a Party drug, with this being said the topics discussed in this weeks episode and the use of Ketamine to help mental challenges is completed in a controlled environment and with a Medical Professional

If you or someone you know is experiencing issues relating to Ketamine or other drugs please contact a medical professional as soon as possible

How does it help fight Depression?

Ketamine has the ability to go to work right away, unlike most antidepressants, which take weeks, sometimes months, to provide relief. Ketamine Infusion Therapy is an IV procedure performed in office by Dr. Ditzell. Unlike an injection such as a flu shot, the stick of the IV needle can barely be felt because it will not hit muscle, so there is virtually zero pain involved even for people who are sensitive to needles. Dr. Ditzell will monitor your response during the infusion and you won’t lose consciousness or awareness of your surroundings, as the ketamine dose and rate used for infusions is only a small fraction of what is used in surgery. Please contact our office to discuss Ketamine Infusion Therapy, and to see if it is right for you
