Ketamine for depression — free talk Nov. 16, 2016

dr-enrique-abreuEven scientists are calling ketamine a miracle drug for its use in treating depression.

Come listen to Dr. Abreu talk about the use of ketamine intravenous drips for the treatment of depression. Dr. Abreu works at the Portland Ketamine Clinic.

Ketamine infusions may help patients with treatment-resistant severe depression, bi-polar depression, PTSD, and major depressive disorder. Thousands of patients treated with ketamine have shown significant improvement in their symptoms.

An initial series of six infusions takes place every other day for 12-14 days. Subsequent single booster infusions may be required to keep symptoms at bay. Resolution of symptoms may last anywhere from two weeks to three months.

Although ketamine is not covered by insurance and is fairly expensive, it is a last resort that works for many people.

Patients often experience brief mild hallucinations and out of body experiences during treatment. Come learn more about ketamine from Dr. Abreu. Some patients who have been helped may also be on hand to share their stories.
