Results of Ketamine Infusions
Most patients who receive ketamine infusions are satisfied with their treatment and remark almost immediate relief in their depression symptoms. A one-week randomized trial showed antidepressant properties in patients within two hours of receiving treatment. Another clinical trial that involved adults with bipolar depression showed statistically significant decline in depression symptoms within 24 hours of treatment.
