Myth #1: Traumatic Events are the only cause of depression.

Traumatic events may trigger depression, but it is not the only risk. Biological, genetic, and environmental causes may induce depression. Depression can also occur for no reason at all. It’s important to talk to your provider and find a support system to help pull you through an episode.

Myth #2: Depression will disappear on its own.

Without treatment, depression can persist for months or even years. Depression can lead to self-harming behaviors or suicide. When you find a treatment for depression that works for you, it can help you to create normalcy and daily functioning that you’ve been missing.

Myth #3: Antidepressants are your only treatment for depression.

Anyone with depression can enjoy life again in many other ways. Lifestyle changes, coping strategies, mental health support, and medical treatment options can make people feel better. Ketamine is one option that may help to treat your depression. It’s important to talk to your provider, or make an appointment with The Crane Center, to see how ketamine treatment can fit into your life.

Ketamine is an effective treatment – one that can make a significant difference in living a high-quality life.

What about the Side Effects of Ketamine Treatment?

The side effects vary. They may include tingling or floating sensations since ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic. During your treatment, you may experience dizziness, nausea, or blurred vision. Ketamine works differently for each person, that’s why it’s so important to talk to a specialist and see how it can fit into your regimen.

We monitor you in the clinic for side effects for 2 hours while receiving your treatment.

Low-dose ketamine has an outstanding safety record and shows great promise. In a study with recovering veterans, there were practically no side effects recorded over five years of using low dose ketamine.
