Take Control of Your Life With Intravenous Ketamine For OCD

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can be difficult to treat with conventional medications and psychotherapy, which is why treating patients with ketamine for OCD is becoming increasingly popular.

People diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) often feel anxious without any due cause and may experience distressing thoughts that cause them to perform activities, such as keeping things symmetrical or exhibiting perfectionistic behavior, as a response to these thoughts. Ketamine therapy has proven to be a very effective option for people suffering from anxiety and severe OCD; treatment may help prevent obsessive and intrusive thoughts.

Understanding Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is a type of anxiety disorder where an individual has recurring thoughts, ideas, or obsessions that make them feel anxious enough to respond with a compulsive behavior. Once the individual has completed their compulsive ritual—such as cleaning something in a certain way, sorting something or lining up everything symmetrically—they feel better temporarily. However, the cycle continues to the point the individual feels like their thoughts and behaviors are out of their control.

OCD Treatment Options

OCD can be distressing for some individuals while others learn to live with it, though many seek out OCD therapies to help relieve side effects of their condition—including individual and group psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and prescription medications.

High levels of anxiety are a recurring underlying theme of OCD so treatment typically involves reducing such symptoms. For those in need of severe OCD treatment, a variety of therapies are often used. However, traditional OCD therapies don’t work for everyone.

Alternative Therapies for OCD

Ketamine is growing in popularity as one of the most effective alternative therapies for OCD. That’s because while medications and therapy can help to keep symptoms of OCD under control, many patients dislike the side effects of antidepressants or the idea of becoming dependent on these drugs for long periods of time.

Intravenous ketamine OCD treatment is an attractive treatment alternative for those suffering from OCD, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Low-dose ketamine infusions can be especially effective for lifting anxiety and a low mood, thereby eliminating or significantly reducing the compulsive behaviors and obsessive thoughts associated with OCD. Exposure therapy after completing a course of ketamine treatments can help restore healthy brain function and aid individuals in creating healthier rituals to cope with everyday life.

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!

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.
