The current effects of ketamine therapy for patients with depression are very positive. But as with anything in this space, more research needs to be done. Respected institutions like Johns Hopkins are doing some groundbreaking research on psychedelics in general. And their results have been very exciting. After turning our backs on these drugs in the previous decades, it seems that we have overlooked their potential benefits. They have what appears to be the ability to help with everything from depression, anxiety, PTSD and more.
However, long-term effects of ketamine therapy in keeping depression at bay remain understudied.
This is a question we get asked all the time. Ketamine is a drug that has some baggage to it. And we get that. It has been thought of as a party drug for a long time. But the research and evidence says it can help people with drug-resistant levels of depression, anxiety and PTSD. Which means if you have tried other methods of treatment to no avail, then you may want to consider ketamine therapy.
And when we refer to ketamine therapy, this isn’t a rave. Or going out to the desert. These therapies are conducted by professionals in safe and secure settings. While you may think of the drug as something from the black market, the DEA has actually categorized it as a Schedule III drug. Which puts it on the same level as Tylenol and codeine.
If you think this type of therapy could help you, then we suggest giving it a try. Don’t let the stigma of what this drug has been used for stop you from getting the help you need. And as always consult your doctor before any decisions.
