Migraines Q & A
What are migraines?
Migraines are more than just headaches. They cause throbbing pain and disabling symptoms that can last for days. In addition to severe pain that usually affects one side of your head, migraine symptoms often include nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light.
Refractory chronic migraine is an especially severe type of this condition that doesn’t respond to treatment. But groundbreaking research from Thomas Jefferson University shows that ketamine infusion therapy provides effective and fast-acting relief to people suffering from chronic migraines.
How does ketamine infusion therapy treat migraines?
Ketamine is a well-known anesthetic medication that acts on your brain’s N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors.
Our experienced team at the Ketamine Clinic of Spokane delivers a low dose of this medication intravenously to provide rapid relief from severe neurological and psychiatric conditions, including chronic migraines, depression, and suicidality.
Ketamine acts quickly and may provide significant improvement after only one treatment session. But individual results vary, and many patients need about six infusions over the course of three weeks for optimal relief.
