Leaders in Ketamine Anxiety Treatments

Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles is recognized as one of the leading centers offering ketamine for anxiety treatment. This breakthrough treatment has shown remarkable results for patients suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other types of mood disorders where anxiety is a prevalent symptom. Those who suffer from moderate to severe anxiety often find it difficult to cope with the stressors of daily life and may not respond well to conventional therapies such as antidepressant medications, psychotherapy, or other treatment options. Ketamine Infusion Therapy can have a calming effect on the nervous system, helping many people suffering with anxiety to get the relief they need.

Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety can be triggered by stress and life events, but some people experience high levels of anxiety on a day-to-day basis. If anxious thoughts are taking over someone’s life, it can be difficult for them to get through their day, complete tasks, maintain interpersonal relationships, and even sleep at night. Anxiety disorders are often the result of brain chemistry, environmental factors, substance abuse, or a combination of several triggers. Trying to operate in a highly anxious state can take its toll on relationships and compromise the quality of life of those who suffer and those around them.

Understanding Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Those who have persistent anxiety symptoms that last for at least six months may be diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Patients with anxiety may also suffer from depression or other mood disorders. Some may even experience physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, restlessness, fatigue, nausea, and trembling.

Is Ketamine Right For Me?

Choosing a Treatment for Severe Anxiety

While it’s normal to worry and be anxious about life events or unpleasant situations from time to time, those negative feelings typically dissipate once the event is over. In people with anxiety disorders, those negative feelings and unhealthy thought patterns stick around even after triggering circumstances have passed. In some cases, anxious people can become very sensitive and over-reactive to mild stressors.

Common, conventional anxiety treatments include:

  • Learning stress reduction techniques
  • Avoiding drugs and alcohol
  • Conquering fears
  • Healthy lifestyle changes
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Psychotherapy 
  • Benzodiazepines such as Valium, Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin
  • Antidepressants including Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, Lexapro, Celexa, and Effexor
  • Tricyclics such as Tofranil and Anafranil
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) such as Nardil, Parnate, and Marlin
  • Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Does Ketamine Help Anxiety?

Yes, intravenous ketamine therapy can be a highly effective treatment for people suffering with anxiety. The relief ketamine treatment for anxiety can produce tends to occur quickly while not producing any of the negative side effects of prescription medications, no long-term side effects, and the experience itself is often found to be calming and peaceful.

Benefits of Ketamine Infusion Therapy for Anxiety

Unlike prescription medications that can take weeks to months to work and require constant monitoring to ensure proper dosing, ketamine infusions are administered on a short schedule until symptoms subside. Most patients suffering from anxiety and other mood disorders notice relief from their symptoms within a few days of their second or third infusion, about midway through their initial series of infusions. Patients utilizing ketamine for anxiety may also be able to reduce or eliminate dependency on prescription drugs to manage their symptoms. They may also find that they have more energy to make the lifestyle changes needed to keep anxiety at bay. Follow up infusions are usually done on an as-needed basis and in pairs, so patients do not need to repeat the whole series.

Lauren – Mother of PTSD and depression patient

I saw my son once again.

Although all the medical treatment Matt has received was valuable in some way, the only time in 16 years I saw the person who is my son once again quietly emerge, was after the ketamine infusions.

Allen – Engineer

My successes have been phenomenal.

I have cut down on my Effexor to 75 Mg per day. I have eliminated lithium from my regiment and haven’t needed ambien for about month now to sleep. My klonopin I’ve reduced to once every other day. The infusions really helped my depression and chronic pain in my neck. My depression has never been better and I am cutting down on my other medications with great success. Thank you, thank you Dr. Mandel!

Katharine – Registered Nurse

When I found Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles,

When I found Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles and began to research the treatment, I felt my spirits lift. I felt hope. From the moment I called their office, I knew I was in good hands. As someone who works in healthcare, I couldn’t believe how kind and attentive Dr. Mandel and his entire staff were. I know they really care about me. The treatment is the only thing in more than 30 years that has produced such rapid and dramatic improvement in my mood.

Keith – Lawyer

My doctor recommended that I try ketamine

My doctor recommended that I try ketamine at this time because he considers that there is now enough clinical information to make an informed decision about its effectiveness and side effects, and specifically recommended Dr. Mandel, who even with a glowing recommendation from someone for whom I have tremendous respect, vastly exceeded all of my expectations.

Alex – Teacher

Dr. Mandel has truly made my unlivable life, livable again.

Dr. Mandel has truly made my unlivable life, livable again. My ability to get out of bed early and or nearly right as I wake up has significantly improved. I’m able to keep up with my incredibly hectic schedule. My overall mood is high and lethargy is low. My social anxiety is at an all time low, and I haven’t had a panic attack since my first infusion.
