Major Depression

Major depression is debilitating for thousands upon thousands of Americans—but ketamine infusions offer hope to those who thought they had none.

Every year, 13 million to 14 million Americans have major depression. Of those who seek treatment, 30% to 40% will not get better or fully recover with standard antidepressants. These patients who do not recover are at significantly greater risk to abuse drugs and alcohol. They also have increased hospitalizations and suicide attempts. A growing body of research shows that ketamine infusion therapy may be the newest greatest hope for these patients.  Using ketamine appears to be a helpful alternative, for those who have exhausted traditional treatment options. Current data suggests ketamine infusions are appropriate for patients with treatment resistant unipolar or bipolar depression, without psychotic features and lack substance-use disorders.
