Ketamine and Covid-19
Long after the fire of a COVID-19 infection, mental and neurological effects can still smolder. Early on, patients with both mild and severe Covid-19 say they can’t breathe. Now, after recovering from the infection, some of them say they can’t think.

KETAMINE TREATMENT – FIND OUT IF IT IS RIGHT FOR YOU
There is new hope for sufferers of Depression and other NeuroPsychiatric conditions – the medication Ketamine.
Ketamine has rapid and sustained antidepressant effects in depressed patients. Over 85% of patients with depression, including Treatment-Resistant Depression, experience rapid relief of symptoms after Ketamine therapy. The majority of patients with bipolar disorder, chronic anxiety, PTSD, OCD, panic disorder, or agoraphobia will also have significant relief or even complete resolution of symptoms after Ketamine treatment.
Many of these patients have suffered with symptoms of depression for years or decades, and some have even considered or attempted suicide.
Prior to Ketamine, they had no hope for a better quality of life. Many patients experience immediate relief from depression after a single Ketamine infusion.
With a short series of low-dose infusions, symptomatic relief can last for weeks or months – including immediate relief from anxiety, anhedonia (inability to experience joy), physical fatigue, dysphoria (melancholy), cognitive impairment, insomnia and more. When physical symptoms are relieved, patients experience a dramatic improvement in mood.
Impressive Results – Depression Treatment Ketamine
The fact that Ketamine as a treatment for depression works rapidly on 85% of patients is astonishing, and its discovery has profoundly changed depression research and our understanding of the very nature of depression. Academic medical centers including Yale University, the University of California, and Mayo Clinic, are treating more and more of their patients with Ketamine.
Many people don’t seek a depression treatments because they fear the stigma attached or are ashamed to admit they can’t handle their own lives. Worse yet, only 30% to 40% of those people who do seek treatment will get significantly better with commonly prescribed antidepressant medications.
Ketamine works very rapidly, with many patients noting a dramatic elevation in mood within a few hours or days, compared to several weeks with standard drugs. Better yet, Ketamine does not have the weight gain, erectile dysfunction, reduced sexual/orgasmic response, drowsiness, insomnia, or dry mouth side effects of other psychiatric medications.
Note: AKTARI now treats Chronic Pain Disorders as well as NeuroPsychiatric Syndromes. Some patients with depression, bipolar syndrome, or other neuropsychiatric disorders also suffer from some degree of chronic pain.
