Ketamine infusion therapy is a treatment option for major depression and other mood disorders. Some people do not respond sufficiently to traditional treatment plans, which usually consist of oral antidepressants and talk therapy. The last and very effective resort is electroconvulsive therapy (EST). However, EST causes significant memory loss and has a bad reputation for a barbaric method. For people who still experience symptoms of mental health conditions while taking oral antidepressants, it can be easy to lose hope. Ketamine infusion therapy is a safe, evidence-based, fast-acting option to help manage treatment-resistant depression symptoms.
