Benefits

Why Ketamine is Effective for Depression Treatment

It’s Rapidly Effective

Conventional antidepressants can take weeks to months to become effective. Ketamine’s benefits often begin to appear within hours, and clinical trials with ketamine have shown peak mood elevation about 24-36 hours after treatment, continuing to have a lasting effect throughout the week.

You Don’t Have to Take it Every Day

Unlike other psychiatric medications that are typically taken daily, ketamine treatments are far less frequent, which results in far fewer side effects. Our clients often begin with weekly administration during their initial four-session program and then transition to less frequent sessions in subsequent programs.

It can promote awareness for new perspectives with enhanced neuroplasticity

One of the many benefits of the guided ketamine experience is to create a psychedelic, or “mind-revealing,” state of consciousness in order to facilitate lasting, meaningful personal growth and transformation.

The biological and neurochemical basis of ketamine creates an ideal state for making powerful, positive changes in your life. The actions and behaviors you take can be received more fully, and settle in more naturally, through the neuroplastic state ketamine induces.

What is the neuroscience behind ketamine therapy for depression disorders and symptoms?

We know that ketamine modulates additional receptor types, but the glutamate receptors seem to play the most important role in ketamine’s ability to treat depression and anxiety.


Neurons have a number of different binding sites for glutamate, but when it comes to ketamine, two are of particular interest: the NMDA receptor and the AMPA receptor.


By increasing the level of glutamate transmission while also shifting the balance of glutamate activation from NMDA to AMPA receptors, ketamine rapidly upregulates neuronal production and release of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). Aptly called fertilizer for the brain, BDNF is a protein that helps promote the growth, maintenance, and survival of neurons—in other words, it enhances neuroplasticity.

Can I use ketamine for anxiety treatment if I’m on other anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications?

The answer is often yes. Each person’s health profile is unique, and during your video consultation, a clinician will work with you to determine the best treatment plan based on your evaluation and health history. Some medications are contraindicated with ketamine, so please be sure to walk through your current medications with your clinician.


Some Mindbloom clients have been able to safely taper off their anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications under the close supervision of their existing psychiatric providers, following improvements from ketamine therapy.

Which other conditions / diagnoses is ketamine-assisted therapy used to treat?

In addition to ketamine for anxiety, ketamine therapy is backed by research and used by Mindbloom to treat depression. 


Ketamine has also been used successfully to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), OCD, chronic pain, and is an emerging treatment for other diagnoses.

How long will it take to see results or outcomes from my treatment?

To achieve lasting outcomes, we recommend our clients play an active role in their treatment and work closely with their clinician and guide to integrate the benefits of treatment into their day-to-day lives.

How does ketamine for depression work?

Ketamine therapy helps you facilitate an increased capacity for enhanced thought patterns, assisting in deconstructing old patterns and behaviors, and does so by enhancing your brain’s neuroplasticity — the ability to adapt and respond appropriately to its own activity.


For individuals with depression, neuroplasticity is diminshed by chronic stress, anxiety, and other depression-related symptoms.
