Medical professionals treat depression using many approaches each cutomized to the form and type of depression . Traditional technques include psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, antidepressant medications, and electroconvulsive therapy. Newer approaches involve deep brain stimulation and ketamine depression therapy.
Ketamine depression therapy is best used after traditional depression treatment techniques have not helped. Unlike antidepressant medications, which can take weeks to show results, ketamine deression therapy has the advantage of showing positive results in many individuals as soon as the first treatment.
Ketamine depression therapy may be given by injectable, or nasal spray forms under strict medical supervision. Ketamine nasal spray may have more side effects than the intraveous injection, as the drug may be absorbed into the blood stream at different rates in different people, thus causing the "Goldilocks Effect" with some people getting too much too fast and having severe side effects, some people do fine with just the right amount, and some people get too slow absorption and not as much benefit. These issues with the nasal spary are still being evaluated. The eskatamine nasal spray is typically more expensive than intravenous ketamine.
