According to the PTSD United, 70% of adults in the United States experience some type of traumatic event in their lives. Of those, 20& go on to develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). That comes out to roughly 44.7 million people in the US suffering from PTSD. Unfortunately, a great many of these cases have proven treatment-resistant, even after multiple attempts and several different antidepressants.
Ketamine is an exciting new avenue for those seeking treatment because the effects of Ketamine’s relief on the symptoms of depression can be felt within hours, rather than the usual four-to-six weeks it takes for a standard antidepressant medication to take hold.
