How does ketamine treat Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?
Low doses of ketamine do an exceptional job helping patients experience relief from their symptoms of OCD.
Ketamine directly targets the brain neurotransmitters called glutamate and GABA and quickly balances their levels in your brain. This differs from typical treatments, because the treatments don’t directly affect the GABA and Glutamate directly. They first target other neurotransmitters – a process that takes weeks before depression starts to improve.
