For the Treatment of Mood Disorders
The wide range of chemical processes that occur in the human brain are very complex and fully understanding them is something that neurobiologists spend their entire lives doing. That being said, here is a very simplified explanation of how ketamine interacts with receptors and chemicals in the brain to cause anti-depressant effects, even in patients with severe Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD). It’s important to note that this interaction is exclusive to ketamine IV therapy, a mood disorder treatment where ketamine is given slowly, intravenously, and at a sub-anesthetic dose. This route of administration (ROA) is crucial for the therapeutic effect of ketamine.
