KENTUCKIANA MEDICINE IS NOW OFFERING A NEW INSURANCE-COVERED THERAPY FOR TREATMENT-RESISTANT DEPRESSION (TRD)
KETAMINE SPRAVATO is a NEW FDA-APPROVED TREATMENT COVERED BY SOME INSURANCE COMPANIES, INCLUDING MEDICARE for patients suffering from Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD) and suicidal thinking. The patients should have tried at least two other antidepressants and have NOT been able to get relief from their depression symptoms.
KETAMINE SPRAVATO is nasal spray Ketamine Therapy that the patient self-administers in a controlled environment at a REMS–certified KETAMINE SPRAVATO treatment center such as Kentuckiana Medicine.
KETAMINE THERAPY WORKS extremely well. About 70 to 85 percent of patients with severe depression who try ketamine treatment say it’s effective, compared with 58 to 70 percent of ECT “shock therapy” patients. Other studies show that only around 37 percent of people who use ANTIDEPRESSANT drugs experience full remission. This number drops even lower past the first year of use.
Ketamine Therapy works for depression through a different mechanism than other “antidepressants.” Ketamine is described as a “nervous system reset of the brain,” creating a massive number of new connections of the brain’s neurons [nerve cells] and balancing your brain’s chemicals which helps brain cells communicate with each other along these new pathways, affecting mood, thought patterns and cognition.
With Ketamine, researchers saw a rapid “reconnection” of the brain network. But, more than that, they discovered that after Ketamine treatment, there was brand new nerve growth.
“Ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.” Thomas Insel, Director, National Institute of Mental Health
Alice Levitt-Medical Writer and Editor: “I had come to believe that my depression was a terminal illness. I tried ketamine to treat my depression. Within a day, I felt relief… Ketamine may have saved my life… After the final infusion, I had the initiative to start writing again. The following week quickly filled up with activities, both work, and fun. I was living for the first time in months. It’s been three months since my last treatment, and I’ve even started to feel excited about my future.“
