Keep in mind there are several kinds of depression, and your symptoms may look different from someone else’s. Your depression treatment plan will look different, too.
What is IV Infusion Therapy?
The demand of activity around using Ketamine to treat depression is recent. But research goes back decades. About 1/3 of people in the US with depression have treatment resistant depression. A past patient, Margaret Clifford, was shocked as anyone else when Ketamine has completely wiped out her depression. She feels like the feel like this is the person she is supposed to be.
How is Depression treated with Ketamine Therapy
What really differentiates Ketamine from common depressants is how it affects the brain. Ketamine can repair neurons and synapsis that typically don’t function properly with depressed patients. Anti-depressants usually focus on increasing chemicals in the brain like Serotonin and Ketamine. Attitudes are changing and access to the drug as a medication is becoming more readily available. For example, the FDA has approved the nasal form of Ketamine. Users can get relief in minutes or hours rather weeks or months like the typical anti-depressants.
The pricing for mood disorder treatment is as follows:
- $499 per infusion
- Initial consultation fee – insurance, or $100 self-pay
Arizona Infusion Center accepts payment via credit card, health savings account and CareCredit. Refer a patient to us and receive $200 off of a maintenance infusion if they undergo treatment.
