Ketamine Therapy For Anxiety Disorders
Depression and severe generalized anxiety can be devastating, but there is hope. Invictus Clinic treats the most severe cases of depression and anxiety with low-dose ketamine infusions — with tremendous, often life-saving, success!
Recent studies on Ketamine Therapy have shown “Within 24 hours of receiving ketamine, 70 percent of patients with treatment-resistant depression saw an improvement in symptoms.” As a result, they designated ketamine One of The Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2017.
How Does Ketamine Help People With Anxiety?
One of the biggest benefits to Ketamine Infusion for anxiety treatment is its ability to sometimes bring relief to anxiety symptoms within minutes or hours, rather than the weeks or months your typical antidepressant may take.
Research into Ketamine infusions for treating anxiety disorders is still ongoing, but it is generally believed that Ketamine helps to foster connections between synapses and helps to restore damaged connections between nerves (essentially “rewiring” the brain), as well. Because of this, Ketamine infusions are helpful for not only depression or other mental health disorders but also Neuropathic disorders like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or fibromyalgia.

What You Need To Know About Anxiety
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF ANXIETY DISORDERS?
Anxiety tends to vary between each individual case, but there are a few basic types of anxiety disorders most cases can be identified as:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Characterized by consistent worry, anxiety, and tension, even if there is nothing to bring it on.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Characterized by recurrent intrusive thoughts (known as obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (known as compulsions). These compulsions, sometimes called rituals, are performed in an attempt to prevent these obsessive thoughts or make them subside. The compulsions typically only offer temporary relief, however, and can further contribute to anxiety.
Panic Disorder Characterized by repeated episodes of intense fear that bring on physical symptoms such as chest aches, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, dizziness, or abdominal distress.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Brought on after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening or traumatic event.
Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) Characterized by intense anxiety and self-consciousness in everyday social situations. It may be limited to only public speaking, but some people may experience symptoms whenever they are around other people.
Agoraphobia Characterized by avoidance of places or situations that trigger feelings of anxiety or panic.
WHAT ARE THE COMMON SYMPTOMS OF ANXIETY DISORDERS?
Anyone suffering from an anxiety disorder may find themselves having difficulty functioning in their everyday life, and may fall behind at work or at school. Anxiety disorders can also affect your relationships with your loved ones or your physical health as well.
Although symptoms can vary from case to case and disorder to disorder, some of the most common symptoms include:
- Feelings of nervousness
- Feelings of restlessness
- Increased heart rate
- A sense of impending doom
- Trouble sleeping
- Trouble concentrating
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Avoiding things that trigger your anxiety
People with high stress or childhood trauma may be more likely to develop an anxiety disorder, as well as people with a family history of anxiety or other mental health disorders. Anxiety disorders can bring a higher risk of developing depression or heart disease, and some may turn to substance abuse to try to alleviate the symptoms of their disorder.
GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER
Generalized anxiety disorder can develop in anyone, from children to adults, and is different in everyone. If your anxiety and worry are interfering with your daily activities and personal relationships, it may be time to seek treatment.
Learning to manage the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder can be a life-long challenge for some people. However, it can be improved with psychotherapy or medications, as well as general lifestyle changes.
Symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Consistent anxiety and worry about things that are out of proportion to the reality of the events
Perceiving normal situations as threatening
- Difficulty with managing uncertainty
- Fear of making a bad decision
- Being unable to relax
- Being unable to concentrate
Causes of Generalized Anxiety Disorder
There may not be a single cause when it comes to developing an anxiety disorder, but research indicates it may be caused by a variety of biological and environmental factors, including but not necessarily limited to:
- Different brain chemistry in different people
- Genetics or family history
- Childhood and development
- Temperament and personality
