IV Ketamine is currently the ONLY fast acting treatment proven to reduce the symptoms of even the most severe forms of depression including suicidal ideation.
Major depression affects more than 16.2 million American adults, or about 6.7% of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year.
Approximately 70%- 80% of women will experience, at a minimum, the “baby blues” and many more will experience the more severe condition of postpartum depression and its other subtypes.
Research has shown that a series of low-dose Ketamine infusions rapidly reduce depressive symptoms and produces results that may last as long as 2-3 months.
Clinical studies have demonstrated between 50% – 80% of patients receive clinically significant results from even ONE ketamine treatment even in treatment resistant depression (TRD).

If you have been experiencing some of the following signs and symptoms most of the day, nearly every day, for at least two weeks, you may be suffering from depression:

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
  • Long term feelings of hopelessness, or pessimism
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
  • Decreased energy or fatigue
  • Moving or talking more slowly
  • Feeling restless or having trouble sitting still
  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
  • Difficulty sleeping, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
  • Appetite and/or weight changes
  • Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
  • Aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems without a clear physical cause and/or that do not ease even with treatment

Ketamine Depression Treatment Protocol:

  • 1-hour low-dose infusion: 40 minutes of active infusion and a 20-minute active recovery before being released to go home
  • The low-dose infusions typically start around 0.5 mg/kg/hr and may be adjusted to the response of the patient
  • Initial series of 6 infusions administered over several weeks
  • Maintenance infusion sessions are conducted every 3-5 weeks after initial series

The number and frequency of treatments are variable from patient to patient depending on factors such as the severity of the symptoms, the other medications a patient may be on, and the patient’s response to the treatments.
