How Quick is the Onset?
Unlike traditional antidepressant medications that may take weeks to exert their effects, IV ketamine therapy has a relatively rapid onset of action. Some individuals may experience significant improvements in mood within hours or days after a single ketamine infusion. This immediate relief can provide hope and motivation, especially for those experiencing severe depressive symptoms.
Ketamine has an FDA indication for the treatment of resistant depression. People who struggle with depression, anxiety, and PTSD have reported improvements after a series of ketamine infusions.

Ketamine is the only legal psychedelic therapy available in Indiana. Check out the video below to hear Dr. Dee Bonney explain the ways in which Ketamine infusions works by decreasing glutamate levels in the brain. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter. It also increases levels of brain-derived neuotropic factor (BDNF), which is thought to be responsible for the neuroplasticity of the brain.
Neuroplasticity is the brains ability to form new tracts, allowing us to reframe old traumas and get out of self-defeating internal monologues.
