What Are The Symptoms of a Migraine ?

- Nausea and vomiting
- Impaired speech
- Blind spots in their vision
- Flashing lights
- Tingling in the extremities or one side of the face
How Does Ketamine Help With Migraines?
The exact mechanism that leads to ketamine treating the symptoms of migraines is still not entirely understood by research. Research suggests that it produces an antidepressant effect by targeting the brain’s NMDA receptors. By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the 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 meaningful nerve connections.
The Ketamine Infusion Experience
During treatment, 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 chronic pain conditions like require a larger dose.
A number of our patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this disassociation 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 anxiety, ketamine does have a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, disrupted vision, lightheadedness, nausea, or some slight anxious feelings after 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.
