How does ketamine infusion therapy treat PTSD?
Ketamine normalizes levels of a brain chemical called glutamate that regulates the stress and anxiety caused by PTSD. The type of ongoing stress caused by PTSD leads to impaired nerve communication. Ketamine can repair that problem which helps relieve your symptoms.
Mental health professionals often prescribe medications to treat the symptoms, like depression, associated with PTSD. You may also receive psychotherapy to help you deal with your memories and emotions.
What should I expect during ketamine therapy?
We administer ketamine therapy in the office using an intravenous (IV) infusion. You can relax during the infusion while our team continuously monitors your heart rate and blood pressure.
To achieve optimal results, you need a series of sessions, typically six infusions, over two to three weeks. You may need occasional maintenance sessions, depending on how long your results last.
