Ketamine was discovered in 1962, first tested in humans in 1964, and was approved for use in the United States in 1970. After its US approval, it was greatly used for surgical anesthesia in the Vietnam War, due to its safety. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system. Ketamine is known to have relatively fast effectiveness for the treatment of non-psychotic, treatment-resistant unipolar and bipolar major depression, various pain syndromes, OCD, PTSD, and Major Anxiety. Some physicians report other mood and pain disorders where Ketamine has also shown rapid relief. We compound ketamine in most dosage forms.
The Biological Effects of Ketamine
There are the neurobiological effects and benefits when receiving ketamine. Through these effects, we would expect a general improvement in overall mood, an increase in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and bolstering of neurons that have been worn down over time by the body's physiological response to things like anxiety and depression. The biological effects are dose-dependent, and happen regardless of an individual's subjective experience with the medicine.
The Subjective Effects of Ketamine
There are also subjective or phenomenological healing effects that ketamine can provide at medium/high doses. These effects include novel ways of thinking, disconnection from thoughts or emotions, dilation of time or space, out-of-body experiences, and more. These experiences vary between each individual and each treatment, but can be essential catalysts for deep transformation when treating mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety with ketamine.
Rapid Dissolve Tablets & Troches
One form of oral formulation is sublingual rapid dissolving tablets and troches, which offer fast dissolution and rapid absorption while bypassing the liver.
Ketamine nasal spray is another common form used by most ketamine clinic MDs. They can gradually and carefully increase the dose to 2 sprays in each nostril (40mg) every 4 to 6 hours as needed. Ketamine is also a great asset in the fight to reduce opiate burden for patients. Its potential, dual effect of controlling pain and treating depression is very useful as those two conditions are usually interrelated and occur concurrently in a lot of patients. Another potential benefit is for patients suffering from alcoholism.
