A Ketamine-Based Nasal Spray For Depression Has Just Been Approved by The FDA

The Food and Drug Administration approved a novel antidepressant for people with depression that does not respond to other treatments – the first in decades to work in a completely new way in the brain. The drug, a nasal spray called esketamine, has been eagerly anticipated by psychiatrists and patient groups as a powerful new tool to fight intractable depression. The spray acts within hours, rather than weeks or months as is typical for current antidepressants, and could offer a lifeline to about 5 million people in the United States with major depressive disorder who haven’t been helped by current treatments. That accounts for about 1 in 3 people with depression.

How We Can Help

How We Can Help

Ketamine infusion therapy revolutionized how psychiatric conditions are treated. Current treatments including anti-depressants, work on the neurochemicals called monoamines. Ketamine works rapidly on the NMDA receptors. For many patients with treatment-resistant depression, Ketamine infusion therapy offers a rapid resolution of symptoms. At Ketamine Therapeutics we have a team of physicians and nurses who offer a safe monitored setting for ketamine infusions.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy Can Effectively Treat

Major Depression

Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. 

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over.

Severe Anxiety

For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships.

Alcohol Use Disorder

An alcohol use disorder (AUD) is drinking that causes distress and harm. It is a medical condition in which you: drink alcohol compulsively, can't control how much you drink, feel anxious, irritable, and/or stressed when you are not drinking.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Sexual trauma and trauma due to violence are common. Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness marked by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, self-image, and behavior. These symptoms often result in impulsive actions and problems in relationships.

Suicidal Ideation

46000 people died by suicide in the US in 2016. Well-known personalities such as Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade fell victim this illness. There is excellent evidence that Ketamine infusion therapy is beneficial for suicidal depression.
