HOW KETAMINE INFUSIONS WORK
As far as treatments for depression go, Ketamine is completely different from every variation of antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication available on the market. When ketamine is administered in a very precise way, it triggers a sequence of events in the brain, which ultimately results in the repair and re-growth of neurons in communication pathways that had previously been damaged or killed. Some researchers have observed that prolonged exposure to stress causes these neurons to die, resulting in depression, but ketamine causes them to re-grow within hours, relieving the depressive symptoms almost immediately. This is an oversimplification of a very complex topic, and the latest research hints there may be several other mechanisms involved that also play important roles. The exact mechanism that causes ketamine to relieve depression is still under study.
