Ketamine Facts

  • Ketamine is a FDA approved powerful safe anesthetic known as an “NMDA receptor antagonist” and “AMPA receptor stimulator” that was developed more than 50 years ago.
  • It has been safely used in chronic pain management for over 20 years.
  • Within the last 15 years it has been safely used in the treatment of mood disorders: depression, treatment resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, psychiatric disorders, and chronic pain when administered at precise, carefully controlled sub-anesthetic dosages by a skilled and licensed medical provider.
  • In the last 10 years prominent institutions all over the world including Yale University, The Mayo Clinic, Mt. Sinai Medical School, The National Institute of Mental Health, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Stanford University regularly reported a 70% success rate or higher in IV Ketamine’s efficacy in the treatment of these medical conditions.
  • Ketamine provides relief by blocking NMDA receptors which creates a favorable chemical environment for neuron growth.
  • This provides time for repair and regeneration of neural pathways, which often reduces symptoms associated with mood disorders, PTSD, and chronic pain.
  • Ketamine also works by being an AMPA receptor stimulator which results in increasing BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor)
  • BDNF stimulates new receptors and synapses (vital connections between neuron)
  • Research suggests a deficiency in synapses is link to depression and other mood disorders.
