Ketamine Hangover Q&A

What is ketamine?

Ketamine is an anesthetic that surgeons use as a general anesthetic during procedures to stop pain signals and induce unconsciousness. 

But ketamine is also given in low doses to treat conditions like depression, anxiety, and migraine pain. Ketamine is an antagonist of the brain receptor N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), binding to the brain receptor to get the desired effects. 

The actions of the ketamine prevent the neurotransmitter glutamate from binding to the brain receptors. Glutamate is a chemical messenger that transmits messages between nerve cells. Blocking glutamate forces the neurotransmitter to create new neural connections to deliver messages.

Researchers theorize that the new neural connections made by glutamate are how ketamine provides relief from chronic health conditions like depression and pain.

Ketamine hangover is one of the therapies available at StrIVeMD Wellness and Ketamine. The skilled team provides intravenous (IV) therapies to help you recover from the side effects of alcohol or other substances.

These substances may leave you dehydrated and cause headaches, body aches, and fatigue. They may also deplete the body of vital nutrients.
