Ketamine infusions work differently from traditional medicines, which may require regular intake to have lasting effects. In some instances, patients find that the medications are ineffective and fail to treat the disorder. On the other hand, ketamine infusions work faster and are more efficient as part of a treatment regimen. Instead of targeting neurotransmitters as SSRIs and other traditional medications do, ketamine aims to radically change neural passageways and help develop healthy neurons as if resetting the brain’s connections. In many cases patients experience life-changing relief.
