Make a difference with one infusion therapy at a time
Why Ketamine Infusions?
After a single Ketamine Infusion, a patient can feel almost immediately the weight of OCD that has been lifted. This is exciting because this is the first time a drug had rapid affects in OCD. Ketamine works differently from standard OCD medication like anti-depressants. It opens up new lines of investigation for drug development.
How can an IV infusion help with OCD ?
Our IV medications contain compounds that block Glutamate imports. Too much glutamate may lead to self hyperactivity. OCD causes a hyper-active thought control circuit without a stop signal. Patients without a stop signal are bombarded with OCD thoughts. Glutamate is the main chemical messenger that’s involved nerve cell communication. Low doses of Ketamine had been shown to be safe and effective to treat major depression. In a single low dose, Patients reported complete sedation of their OCD.
