A new option for treatment-resistant depression

IPS Research is now providing ketamine infusion therapy for individuals with treatment-resistant depression.
Ketamine infusion therapy is being studied for use in treatment-resistant depression, however the FDA has not granted approval for this purpose. Studies have shown the drug can offer rapid improvement in symptoms, particularly in patients for whom other treatments have failed. The results doctors are seeing with their patients receiving ketamine has been significant enough that we want to help offer this as a service to those who may benefit from its use. Research is ongoing to determine the long-term effectiveness.

How does ketamine infusion therapy work for depression?

Traditional antidepressants given for depression work by affecting the number of neurotransmitters in the brain. They can take weeks or months to reach peak effect and still may not offer adequate relief from depression symptoms. Ketamine blocks a different type of receptor during the infusion. Inhibiting this receptor starts a cascade in the brain which produces a protein that triggers growth of new neural connections. Researchers suspect this “rewiring” is part of the antidepressant effect. Ketamine is also a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and there is a strong correlation between depression and chronic inflammation. This anti-inflammatory effect may also contribute to the antidepressant impact.
