What Is Ketamine?
If you have heard of ketamine, It’s likely that you’ve heard of ketamine in the context of its history as a club drug (Special K). It’s an anesthetic drug and has been used to treat both animals and people over the years. While it has a history of being misused, with the right guidance ketamine can help to ease pain – especially in lower doses. It helps sedatives to work and it can help those who need it use fewer addictive painkillers, such as morphine.
As a club drug, ketamine altered sight and sound, causing hallucinations and making people feel spaced out from their surroundings. Outside of a clinic setting, ketamine can be dangerous. However, with the right help and advice, it can be a miracle for those suffering with severe depression. It’s previously been known as a horse tranquilizer used by veterinarians, and it’s one of the essential medicines according to the World Health Organization. With its use as a painkiller, ketamine is known as an effective drug for chronic pain disorders. It’s also a breakthrough drug for depression, PTSD and anxiety, too.
As part of a treatment program that is regulated and carefully monitored, ketamine is a safe drug to use. It has the potential to be addictive, but as part of ketamine infusion therapy, it is unlikely. Patients are monitored very carefully and they take low doses of the drug, monitored in a medical setting. There are strict protocols to ensure safe delivery and results are recorded to make adjustments as necessary.
Therapy Reset: How Ketamine Therapy Works
At Therapy Reset, our process is not a complicated one. Ketamine is intravenously administered to patients, meaning that it is fed through a line in the vein. In small doses, ketamine is passed through, with the session itself lasting around 90 minutes. For most patients, ketamine infusion occurs in six doses over up to six weeks. Treatment occurs once or twice a week and it can help some to have further treatment every few weeks after the first dose. It’s a treatment that works due to its long-lasting effects. Patients are awake and responsive during the treatment and it’s not administered in doses that are enough to put patients to sleep. Patients will feel good after treatment, but not high or hallucinogenic.
One simple infusion can make patients feel better for several days, and it’s a preferred pain relief option when in a treatment program, extending the effects over several weeks. Most patients experience the first two treatments before they have a “resistance phase” where their symptoms return. Around treatment five or six is when they can break through their symptoms and have relief that lasts for a longer time. Most antidepressants take a few weeks before they begin to work, but ketamine takes effect on the depression as it leaves the body.
