Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Do you have “stubborn” or treatment resistant depression?
Are you still feeling depressed after trying multiple antidepressants and psychotherapy?
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, Ketamine infusion therapy may be your best option for recovery.
Although antidepressant medications and psychotherapy are helpful to many people suffering from depression, many studies show that 40% or more of these patients fail to benefit from this approach and are considered to have treatment resistant depression.
What Is Ketamine?
Ketamine is an anesthetic medication that has been around for over 60 years. Although Ketamine infusion therapy is not FDA approved for the treatment of depression or other psychiatric disorders, research over the past 20 years has shown it to be the most rapid and effective treatment available for depression and suicidal thinking.
This “off label” (non-FDA approved use) use is proving to be an effective treatment for conditions such as:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Chronic pain
- Chronic Headache Disorders
- CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome)
These treatments are now being provided by large academically affiliated centers across the country such as Harvard, Columbia, and the Cleveland Clinic.
The Remedy offers the only full-service psychiatric clinic in Minnesota with a full range of options to treat your “stubborn” treatment resistant depression. In addition to Ketamine infusions, we also offer cutting edge treatments such as FDA-approved Spravato, ketamine assisted psychotherapy and dTMS (deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation using the Brainsway device).
