How Safe Is Ketamine When Used To Treat Depression?
Im not suicidal, so will I see any benefit from it? (Im severely treatment-resistant)
Ketamine is safe when used in depression
Ketamine is safe when used in treatment resistant depression. One will not see any serious side effects if given by a good psychiatrist.
Multiple infusions are needed and the results are good during treatment. But once the therapy is discontinued the relapse of symptoms is seen.
So we can say its safe to be used in depression, but the response is not very promising as initially thought.
Thanks. Please let me know if you have more doubts.
Yes, this will prevent the relapse of symptoms.
Yes, if they are planning maintenance infusions then this will prevent the relapse of symptoms. No need to get worried.
Once you are better then the drugs will also help in maintaining the remission.
