Ketamine for Anxiety
The single most common mental illness in the United States, anxiety disorders affect about 40 million American adults. Even with treatment, many patients do not reach adequate clinical relief from their symptoms with conventional medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. Failure to obtain relief from the debilitating symptoms of anxiety can have a tremendous negative impact on your quality of life, but there is hope.
Often, anxiety disorders are treated with SSRIs or other drugs that may take weeks to have an effect, if they are effective at all. Breakthrough research indicates relief may not lie in SSRIs and benzodiazepines but in a decades-old anesthetic called ketamine. For anxiety treatment-resistant depression and a host of other chronic conditions, this treatment is showing great promise in clinical trials.
