HOW DOES KETAMINE TREATMENT WORK FOR DEPRESSION?
Ketamine has the ability to go to work right away, unlike most antidepressants, which take weeks, sometimes months, to provide relief. Ketamine Infusion Therapy is an IV procedure performed in office by Dr. Ditzell. Unlike an injection such as a flu shot, the stick of the IV needle can barely be felt because it will not hit muscle, so there is virtually zero pain involved even for people who are sensitive to needles. Dr. Ditzell will monitor your response during the infusion and you won’t lose consciousness or awareness of your surroundings, as the ketamine dose and rate used for infusions is only a small fraction of what is used in surgery. Please contact our office to discuss Ketamine Infusion Therapy, and to see if it is right for you.
