How Does Ketamine Help With Depression Treatment?

While scientists are still not 100% certain as to how ketamine help with treatment-resistant depression, many researchers believe it has to do with ketamine being an NMDA antagonist.

When ketamine binds to these receptors, an increase in glutamate is seen. An off-balance Glutamatergic system has been linked to various mood disorders.

Glutamate is a key molecule in the modification and remodeling of synapses, which underlies learning and memory storage.

What is Depression?

Depression is a condition that causes an overwhelming feeling of sadness, emptiness, and loneliness. People may experience anger or suicidal thoughts during their time with depression. Depression can affect the way you function day-to-day because it makes everything seem so much more difficult than they really are.

In 2019 an estimated 19.4 million adults in the United States had at least one major depressive episode. This number represented 7.8% of all U.S. adults. There is also a significant increase in the number of youth in our country living with major depression.

What Causes Depression?

There are many different factors that have been associated with the onset of depression. The following are some of the major risk or predisposing risk factors for developing depression.

  • Major life events
  • Stressful relationships
  • Physical illness
  • Traumatic experiences/events
  • Abuse of alcohol or other substances
  • Medications that affect serotonin levels in the brain (such as SSRI’s)
  • Lack of sleep or excess sleep

The chemicals your brain produces – serotonin and norepinephrine – might be out of balance when you’re depressed (called neurochemical imbalance). This can distort your perception and prevent you from functioning normally in day-to-day life no matter how hard you try to “snap out” of it.

What Are The Symptoms of Depression?

Symptoms of depression can be different from person to person. But, if you have any of the following symptoms more than occasionally it could be a sign that you might have depression:

  • You feel unhappy or blue
  • You feel slowed down in physical activity
  • You lose interest in activities that used to give pleasure
  • Thoughts about death and suicide
  • Changes in appetite/weight loss or gain

This is often referred to as “the rollercoaster” feeling of living with depression.
