Patients affected by Postpartum Depression are often desperate for relief from the feelings of sadness, lethargy, helplessness, and even suicidal thoughts. A major problem is antidepressant medications take time to work. And, mothers of newborn infants can feel desperate for immediate relief of their depression symptoms. In addition, most antidepressants can be passed along in the mother’s breast milk, putting the infant at risk from these medications. Antidepressant medications can also lead to severe side effects including increased sleepiness and weight gain. Meanwhile, talk therapy is often only effective after months of treatment. Ketamine is a big deal because Ketamine depression medication has been found to provide immediate relief in up to 70% of patients who have tried it. This includes patients with major depression, postpartum depression, severe anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar depression, and even pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Ketamine is unique because it has the potential to provide immediate relief in patients that need rapid relief and improvement of their mental and physical symptoms. Please note: There is not sufficient data to say that Ketamine can be given to breastfeeding mothers. So, in an abundance of caution, Virginia Infusion Therapies recommends NOT to breastfeed after Ketamine infusions.

Furthermore, patients such as those with postpartum depression require and benefit from rapid relief of their symptoms, so that can properly care for their infants.
