With the percentage of U.S. adults taking antidepressants at an all-time high, the clinic’s recently announced ketamine IV therapy offers an research backed solution for reducing the medications used for depression and pain – a crucial consideration given that many antidepressants, especially SSRIs, can cause insomnia, headaches, and digestive problems.

With this announcement, the clinic hopes to encourage more Massachusetts residents struggling with depression or side effects from antidepressants, to seek its adjunctive ketamine treatment which boasts a well-documented high efficacy rate. In multiple recent studies, one-time intravenous ketamine was shown to have rapid and demonstrable improvement for treatment-resistant depression.
Ketamine IV therapy has been shown to help as many as 70% to 80% of patients. In a study published by NIH, one dose of ketamine provided significant improvement in depression-related symptoms, which continued one month after the treatment. The lasting effect, as documented in this study, suggests that ketamine has the ability to alter a patient’s neuroplasticity, which can result in a permanent reduction in depressive thought patterns.
Thrive IV’s ketamine IV therapy usually consists of six-8 sessions taking place over a 2- to 4-week period. The clinic’s primary physician, Dr. Pellegrino, first meets with patients for an in-depth consultation where they discuss their symptoms, medications, medical history, and concerns, to develop a personalized treatment plan.
