Ketamine treatment for depression in Santa Monica, South Bay, Tarzana, and Los Angeles.

Ketamine nasal spray for depression therapy is a new, innovative path to breakthrough-resistant depression. It can help you or your loved one to get relief finally.

Depression is a pervasive and debilitating mental health disorder that affects more than 300 million people, making it the leading cause of disability worldwide. It is different from the usual up-and-down moods. Unquestionably, it challenges everyday life.

Indeed, when long-lasting, depression is a severe health condition. Not only it causes a person to suffer greatly, but it also causes poor function at work, school, and interpersonal relationships. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds.

What’s the difference between Ketamine nasal spray for depression and other anti-depressants?

There are many treatments for depression today. While these drugs relieve depression for some, there is a weeks-long delay before they take effect, and some people with “treatment-resistant” depression do not respond at all. So when compared with Ketamine, these agents have a delayed onset of action — increasing the risk for organ failure and suicide in this subset.

And here, we have an additional opportunity: Ketamine increases neuroplasticity. Usually, in severe forms of depression, the ability to learn is reduced, which makes it challenging to conduct psychotherapy and neurofeedback. Contrarily, with Ketamine, patients become more susceptible to psychotherapy and neurofeedback.

A vital time window appears where you can intensively work with the patient to achieve sustainable change.

Ketamine is especially effective for depression caused by chronic pain or the main symptom of which is pain.

What else can Ketamine treat?

Gradually, more and more studies about the effectiveness of this substance appear: for example, ketamine therapy has worked well in post-traumatic stress disorders. In addition, Ketamine seems to reduce cravings for reuse in opioid dependence.

Finally, Ketamine is both FDA approved and insurance-covered treatment. Find out if your insurance qualifies HERE.

What is Ketamine nasal spray for depression?

Spravato is a FDA approved nasal spray form of Ketamine. Ketamine causes neurogenesis, which is different than traditional anti-depressants that work on the chemical levels in a patient’s brain. Ultimately, as many as 75-80% of people with depression have a significant improvement in their mood in as little as 1-2 treatments.

Spravato – Ketamine nasal spray for depression

Warnings and information

You should not receive Esketamine (Spravato) if you are allergic to it or have untreated or uncontrolled hypertension (high blood pressure).
Tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • heart disease;
  • high blood pressure;
  • alcoholism; or
  • if you drink large amounts of alcohol.

Ketamine may be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant.

Spravato may affect brain development in a child under three or an unborn baby whose mother receives Ketamine during late pregnancy. Effects on brain development could cause learning or behavior problems later in life.

Adverse brain effects from Ketamine have been seen in animal studies. However, studies in human children receiving single short anesthesia uses have not shown a likely impact on behavior or learning. More research is needed.

Sometimes, your doctor may postpone a surgery or procedure based on these risks. Treatment may not be delayed for life-threatening conditions, medical emergencies, or surgery to correct specific congenital disabilities.

Ask your doctor for information about all medicines used during your session.
It may not be safe to breastfeed shortly after receiving this medicine. Ask your doctor about any risks.

How is ketamine given?

We give Ketamine (Spravato) as nasal spray in our clinic.
We watch your breathing, blood pressure, heart function, and other vital signs closely while you are receiving ketamine.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since ketamine is usually given for anesthesia, you are not likely to be on a dosing schedule.

What happens if I overdose?

Because we give Ketamine by a healthcare professional in a medical setting, an overdose is unlikely to occur. We will be watching your vital signs closely, while you are under taking this medication to make sure the medication is not causing any harmful effects.
