Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Ketamine infusion is a novel and fast acting treatment for stubborn depression. You may be asking yourself what is ketamine? Ketamine was once used as an anesthetic in the battlefields in the Vietnam War in the 1970s.It is also used as an anesthetic in the operating rooms.

Ketamine is now gaining ground as a promising treatment for some cases of hard to treat depression. The mood -related benefits of ketamine may stem from the fact that it works through a unique mechanism. Ketamine modulates the activity of glutamate, a brain chemical thought to play a role in stimulating the growth of new brain connections. It also appears to encourage the release of other molecules that help brain cells communicate with each other along with establishing new pathways.

Most of the research on ketamine’s potential benefits for depression and other mood disorders was done using an intravenous (IV) version of the drug. Studies show that a single infusion of ketamine can improve mood within two to four hours in some people with treatment-resistant depression. Some people who are very depressed and are planning suicide have been helped by ketamine faster.

Starting in 2014, specialized clinics throughout the United States began offering IV ketamine infusions off-label to treat severe, stubborn and treatment-resistant depression. Independent outpatient ketamine clinics are popping up all over the U.S.A. Dr. Kranthi Kiran was one of the first few psychiatrists in the United States who used Ketamine infusion therapy for treatment-resistant depression. He is now offering this novel treatment for stubborn depression in India.

American Center for Neuropsychiatry which operates out of a day-care surgical center in Hyderabad, India, is currently offering this novel and promising treatment for severe depression and suicidal thoughts. We have a backup team of very experienced anesthesiologists on-site during the procedure in case of a need for them. Ketamine infusion is administered over a period of 40 to 60 minutes in our day-care surgical center under supervision of Dr. Kranthi Kiran. The patient needs to be closely monitored during the infusion and for about one to two hours after the treatment by our experienced team of doctors and nurses.

The benefits of Ketamine infusion may be obvious within a couple of hours after the first infusion. Most studies suggest eight initial treatments done twice a week. After the initial course of treatment our expert Dr.Kranthi Kiran can help patients decide whether to stop Ketamine or continue treatment at longer intervals for maintenance depending on the case. The benefits of Ketamine infusion treatment may last for a few weeks to a few months.

KETAMINE - Hope for people with serious and stubborn depression : 

Treatment -resistant depression can deprive people of hope for the future and hope that they will ever feel better. Ketamine can provide relief for people who have not found relief with any other treatments for depression. Given its efficacy in people considering suicide, ketamine may be lifesaving.
