Suicidal Thoughts Specialist
Ketamine Infusion Clinic & Pain Management Specialists located in Richmond, Arlington, & Norfolk, VA
At MindPeace Clinics, we know treating suicidal thoughts is critical. Yet most conventional medications take between two and eight weeks to take effect, if they help at all. Ketamine infusion therapy can offer hope for quick improvement of suicidal thoughts. If you have suicidal thoughts, don’t hesitate to call your nearest MindPeace Clinic, or make an appointment online.
How does ketamine treat suicidal thoughts?
Ketamine produces quick results, and is one of the best options for patients with suicidal thoughts. Standard psychiatric medications take weeks before they improve your symptoms – and that’s if they’re effective for you.
By comparison, ketamine often takes effect within 24 hours of your first infusion. The medication quickly makes its way to your brain, where it directly restores levels of a brain chemical called glutamate.
As ketamine balances glutamate levels, most patients experience rapid improvements in suicidal thoughts and accompanying conditions like depression and anxiety.
What should I expect during ketamine infusion therapy?
We administer ketamine using intravenous (IV) infusions. During your infusion, our experienced medical team monitors your heart rate and blood pressure while you relax in a comfortable reclining chair.
You’ll receive a series of six treatments over about two weeks. Though you may feel better after your first treatment, the extended treatment produces longer-lasting results.
If you have suicidal thoughts, don’t wait any longer to get treatment. Call MindPeace Clinics, or schedule an appointment online today.
