Currently, the most common treatment for anxiety and depression is prescription medications. Unfortunately, these can be costly and lead to uncomfortable side effects including weight gain, constipation, fatigue and more.
But now, Ketamine infusion therapy is gaining attention for its effective role in a multi-modal approach to treat and overcome not only chronic and neuropathic pain, but also depression and anxiety. The World Health Organization has even listed Ketamine as one of its essential medicines. Used alone or in combination with oral medication, Ketamine infusion therapy is a promising treatment for patients who suffer from these conditions.
Given the fact that anxiety and depression disorders are the most common mental illness in the US, affecting more than 40 million adults each year, the need for an effective, fast-acting treatment that provides immediate relief for patients is now more important than ever. If you rely heavily on oral medications, Ketamine may help minimize your narcotic intake and provide maximum long-term relief, helping you take back control of your life.
At the Pain and Healing Institute in Los Angeles, they combine a passion for medicine with great compassion when treating their patients. The practice boasts of two, double board-certified doctors (Drs. Samimi and Lalani) with extensive training in psychiatry, anesthesia, and pain. They create individualized treatment plans that address all aspects of anxiety and depression.
