FAQs about

Ketamine Treatment

Depression in Westchester

What are the symptoms of depression?

Depression can cause:

  • Sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Worry
  • Inability to feel joy
  • Disinterest in usual activities
  • Appetite and weight changes
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep changes
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Preoccupation with death

Depression can prevent you from living your regular life. Alongside emotional symptoms, depression can cause physical issues like headaches and stomachaches. Many people with depression also experience anxiety and chronic pain.

What treatments are available for depression?

Antidepressant medications and psychotherapy are the most common approaches, but more than 30% of people don’t find relief with those methods. Up to one-third of patients who do get results from antidepressants later experience depression recurrence (breakthrough depression). Antidepressants can also cause problems like libido loss, weight gain, insomnia, and dry mouth.

If your depression doesn’t improve with traditional treatment, ketamine treatment for depression offers another path to recovery. Ketamine works on brain neurotransmitters but acts differently and works faster. People with depression have low levels of two important neurotransmitters, glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). These neurotransmitters play a major role in mood and well-being. Ketamine quickly reverses the deficiency, repairs broken brain connections, and builds new ones. An impressive 73% of patients who completed a full course of ketamine treatments over six months demonstrated a dramatic 60% improvement on the depression scale.

How ketamine treats depression

Ketamine works differently from traditional antidepressants. Traditional antidepressants typically target neurotransmitters like serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. In contrast, ketamine affects glutamate, the most abundant neurotransmitter in the brain. By modulating the activity of glutamate, ketamine promotes synaptic plasticity, which is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections. This process helps repair damaged neural pathways associated with depression, leading to rapid and significant improvements in mood.

How does ketamine treatment for depression work?

Ketamine depression treatment in Westchester happens on-site at Marpa Minds. Our clinic has state-of-the-art equipment and private treatment rooms with natural sunlight for your comfort. 

Treatment method:

Ketamine Nasal Spray: Spravato®, a ketamine nasal spray, is FDA-approved to target treatment-resistant depression. You administer the spray yourself under the skilled guidance of the Marpa Minds team. Spravato works alongside your regular antidepressant.

Spravato® nasal spray offers rapid results, often within hours of treatment — very different from antidepressant medications that usually take weeks or months to work. Most people feel dramatically better by the third treatment. Ketamine doesn’t cause the side effects that often happen with antidepressants. A few people experience mild nausea or, very rarely, vomiting. The team can quickly alleviate any discomfort of this type in the office. Other side effects are extremely uncommon given its dosing is lower than that used for anesthesia.

Ketamine is uniquely suited to treat depression effectively, and the results prove it. It is an example of the trend toward exploring the healing power of psychedelic medicine.
