Chicago, Illinois -
IV Solution & Ketamine Centers of Chicago wants to point out that intravenous (IV) ketamine therapy is safe and effective for the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is a chronic and disabling condition. PTSD is common in military personnel and veterans who have witnessed or experienced a shocking, dangerous, and frightening event. While it is common for people who have experienced such events to have short-term symptoms, these will gradually go away but not for people with PTSD.
Those who have PTSD may feel scared and stressed even when they are no longer in such a situation. Some will recover after six months or longer, but some people develop chronic PTSD. Studies have shown that ketamine, an antagonist of the glutamate N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, may be an effective and rapidly acting intervention for patients with PTSD and also for treatment-resistant depression (TRD).
The ketamine infusion at IV Solution & Ketamine Centers of Chicago will be done in a private infusion room. During the 45-minute infusion, the patient will be lying down comfortably and will be wearing a blood pressure cuff and other regular monitors. After the infusion has started, the patient will feel a bit drowsy and will begin feeling like they are floating or free. If there is any anxiety, they will adjust the dosing. While feeling drowsy, the patient will not likely fall asleep. Patients are encourage to bring along a headphone and listen to music during the treatment session. After the infusion is completed, the patient is allowed to rest for around 30 to 45 minutes before taking an arranged ride home. The drowsiness may last for a few hours after the infusion.
The length of response to the infusion will differ with each patient but this will increase with later treatments. Patients may experience relief from their symptoms for one to two months and for as long as six months after the first series of six infusions for depression. After that, single booster infusions will be provided to control the symptoms. Those who want to know more about the ketamine center can visit their Facebook page.
