It’s a frustrating situation, to have this incredible new Ketamine treatment for depression – a treatment that is capable of changing and saving lives. Without insurance coverage this available treatment is rendered inaccessible to many. The overwhelming majority of insurance companies will not cover the cost of ketamine infusion therapy, leaving millions of Americans to suffer in the despair of severe depression. Ketamine clinics are operating around the country, but average prices of $500-800 per infusion are burdensome at best. At the Injection & Infusion Clininc of Albuquerque, even though we are offering the lowest-priced ketamine infusions in the country ($299), this potentially life-changing treatment is still not an option for many people.
Ketamine is a generic pharmaceutical that has been FDA-approved as an anesthetic and pain medicine since the 1970’s. Because the drug has been in use for so many years it cannot be patented. Without a patent, pharmaceutical companies cannot achieve a financial return on the unbelievably expensive and lengthy FDA approval process. When there are no profits to be had, the fact that this drug could truly transform the way that we treat depression, is not a factor for the pharmaceutical companies.
Since 2000, there have been countless case reports and studies published, all of them saying the same thing: ketamine is the most remarkable depression treatment we’ve seen, rapidly and safely improving depressive symptoms in 70-80% of patients, including those who have resisted other treatment methods. There are still questions about exactly how ketamine works, but report after report continues to indicate that it does.
People experiencing debilitating depression continue to find hope in the offices of Ketamine clinics around the country. The Injection & Infusion Clinic of ABQ is one of them. We have seen this drug have outstanding results; we have seen joy reenter lives; we have seen them begin to live a rich and fulfilling life.
