The announcement outlines what clients can expect from their visits to the center with the team offering a detailed consultation and bespoke treatment plan for each patient. Typically, a series of six infusions prove effective for depressive disorders, delivered over a two to three-week period.
According to an article published by the Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment journal, ketamine appears to have anti-depressive and anti-suicidal effects on those suffering from bipolar disorder (BD). Treatment failure rates and suicide risks are higher for BD patients than for those with major depressive disorder. BD currently affects around 1% of the population as per the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
Thrive IV can help clients for whom standard anti-depressant medications have proved ineffective. However, the ketamine infusion can both support and be taken in conjunction with existing pharmaceutical drugs as prescribed by a physician.
The clinic ensures all clients are made as comfortable as possible during the procedure with a soft, reclining chair, calm lighting, and gently uplifting music to soundtrack the sessions. Appointments last between 40 minutes and one hour and include a low-dose infusion and around 20 minutes of recovery time.
Patients’ vital signs are monitored throughout the procedure to ensure their safety and well-being at all times.
