What are the Symptoms of Suicidal Ideation?

Suicidal ideation shows up in a variety of ways. Signs and symptoms and intensity levels differ from one person to another. A number of people experience numerous symptoms whilst others only experience only a few. Among the most prevalent symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling trapped or hopeless about a situation
  • Mood swings
  • Giving away belongings or getting affairs in order when there’s no other logical explanation for doing this
  • Developing personality changes or being severely anxious or agitated, particularly when experiencing some of the warning signs listed above
  • Changing routine, including eating or sleeping patterns
  • Doing risky or self-destructive things, such as using drugs or driving recklessly

How Does Ketamine Help Treat Suicidal Ideation?

It is believed that one of the leading causes of suicidal ideation and various other mood disorders is the overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps anxiety by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the effects of anxiety symptoms.

By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may be able to amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the empty space between neurons. Glutamate then interacts with the AMPA receptors.

Together, these receptors bring about the discharge of multiple molecules that boost the brain’s neuroplasticity – essentially, ketamine infusions allow the brain to reset and restore important nerve connections.

What is The Ketamine Experience Like?

During your ketamine treatment for suicidal ideation, we go above and beyond to make sure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their own private rooms. Infusions typically last 45-60 minutes for mood disorders, while infusions for chronic pain conditions require a larger dose.

A number of patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this dissociation effect is what aids with your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy.

These are all ordinary components of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team there to monitor you and be readily available during your infusion.

What are The Side-Effects of Ketamine Treatment?

As a new treatment option for suicidal ideation, ketamine does have a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, disrupted vision, lightheadedness, nausea, or some slight anxious feelings during treatment.

Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication utilized in “off-label” use for infusion therapy. Off-label use indicates that it is a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops with time.

Ketamine may cause a slight elevation in heart rate and blood pressure.
