Anxiety is not always easy to spot. Many factors contribute to and complicate anxiety, such as genetics, personal and family history, and current stressors. While anxiety is far from uniform, some common symptoms to be mindful of are:
Over the past 50 years, ketamine has gone from a powerful anesthetic to a prominent alternative for antidepressants. What was once used as a sedative on the battlefield has become an invaluable resource for various physical and mental issues, known both for its transformative power and fast results.
Traditional medications like antidepressants can take months to start working. Ketamine therapy, on the other hand, offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.
While there is still much to be understood about how ketamine works on the brain exactly, research has focused on ketamine’s effect on glutamate. It’s a neurotransmitter associated with memory, learning, and mood regulation found throughout the central nervous system.
Most current research shows ketamine has an excitatory effect on glutamate. The heightened glutamate activity allows new pathways to form. These new formations correlate with reduced stress, an increased ability to process information, and improved mood regulation.
Many researchers consider that the positive effects of many antidepressants may be a result of glutamate regulation, although less directly than ketamine. Because of this indirect process, SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants often take weeks to improve symptoms of anxiety, if they do at all. Ketamine often produces results and relief from anxiety symptoms during the first session.
