Why Ketamine for Suicidal Ideation?
Ketamine has proven effective in treating suicidal ideation and other mood disorders, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, and bipolar disorder.
Unlike many traditional medications for suicidal ideation, like SSRIs, which can take months to start working, ketamine therapy offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.
How Does Dura Medical Treat Suicidal Ideation?
For treating suicidal ideation, traditional methods may not be effective. That’s when TMS and ketamine may be viable options. While the administration of these therapies differs, both can be fast-acting and highly effective for various mental health disorders.
TMS and ketamine therapy are more effective than conventional medications for suicidal ideation in patients that have not responded to previous medication trials. Both treatments address the brain areas most commonly associated with depression. Ketamine works chemically, while TMS works electromagnetically to rewire the brain, diverting regions and actions linked with suicidal ideation.
