Ketamine and Major Depressive Orders Such as PTSD

Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think, and how you act. Depression causes feelings of sadness and a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. If gone untreated, it can lead to not only further emotion problems, but physical ones as well.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people, or roughly 5% of the world’s population, suffer from depression. It is a debilitating condition for those who don’t receive treatment and has led many to turn to alcohol or drugs, and even suicide.

Types of Depression

  • • Treatment-Resistant Depression
  •   Treatment-Resistant Depression, or TRD, is a type of depression in which the subject has not responded to two or more different attempts of trying anti-depressants, along with having completed a complete psychiatric assessment.
  • • PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  •   Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health disorder that can develop after a traumatic situation, such as witnessing a natural disaster, car accident, combat, or sexual assault. Up to 80% of individuals will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime, but fortunately most do not develop PTSD. Signs of PTSD may start much later after the traumatic event and also may come and go over time. Those affected by PTSD may find it hard to sleep due to the upsetting memories and may also find it difficult to complete everyday activities such as going to work and spending time with loved ones.
  • • OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
  •   Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, is a disorder in which someone has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and sensations that drive them to repeat these compulsions. The person performs these recurring behaviors in order to reduce the obsessive thoughts. Not doing so often causes great anxiety in the person. About 2.2 million American adults are affected by OCD. Obsessive-compulsive disorder behaviors can range anywhere from mild to severe. If left untreated, it can cause an uncomfortable home existence and limit ability to function at work or school. OCD can also be accompanied by eating and
  • anxiety disorders. Signs usually begin to appear as early as childhood through early adulthood.

  • • Suicidality
  •    Suicidality, or suicidal thoughts or suicidal ideation, refers to someone who has become preoccupied with thoughts or suicide. This includes anywhere from an occasional thought to the serious consideration and planning of suicide, as well as the practicing of the motions that would be involved to attempt to end one’s life. Suicidality is often accompanied by severe depression. Many hotlines and various resources are available for those experiencing suicidal thoughts of any kind.
