Focused on providing you the right treatment for the highest level of success

Intravenous ketamine treatment offers hope to those with severe depression, anxiety and PTSD. This includes patients with major depressive disorders, postpartum depression, bipolar depression and severe anxiety states. Severe depression takes a huge toll on your everyday life. Ketamine therapy offers a chance to find hope again. Many patients have tried numerous oral medications, but have found little to no relief as well as difficult to tolerate side effects.

Over the past several years, a number of published research studies have shown that a series of 6 infusions over 2 weeks of low dose ketamine can lead to rapid improvement of severe depression. According to  Washington Post, many experts, such as Thomas Insel (former Director of the National Institute of Mental Health), are calling ketamine “the most significant advancement in mental health in 50 years.” Houston Ketamine Therapeutics administers ketamine via IV infusion, which is the only route of administration that is scientifically proven to work. Dr. Prashad has the ability to tailor the treatment to fit your unique needs. This personalized approach leads to a higher rate of success, and approximately 80% of patients respond to IV ketamine treatment when using this approach. Dr. Prashad will also make comprehensive treatment suggestions that may include therapy, dietary changes, exercise, sleep hygiene recommendations, and addressing underlying biological causes of depression that may be contributing in order to achieve the best results.

“Ketamine is giving us the ability to fight treatment resistant depression in an entirely new way. It is offering new hope to individuals fighting for the future.”
