PTSD Q & A
What is PTSD?
Some people who experience scary or dangerous events develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a mental health condition that can cause fear and anxiety that persists for months or years afterward. Specific symptoms of PTSD vary from person to person, but always include:
When you have PTSD, these symptoms last more than a month and negatively affect your ability to function.
How does ketamine infusion therapy help PTSD?
Ketamine works on specific systems in your brain, including N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. More research is necessary to fully understand how it functions, but brain imaging studies show that ketamine rebuilds broken neural pathways.
In addition to acting as an anesthetic medication, ketamine provides rapid relief from treatment-resistant psychiatric and neurological conditions, including chronic migraines, anxiety, suicidal ideation and depression.
During infusion therapy, your Ketamine Clinic of Spokane provider administers the ketamine intravenously while you relax. The dose of ketamine is much lower than what’s necessary for anesthesia, and your skilled provider monitors your safety at all times.
