Ketamine for Migraines
Treatment options for migraines
- Prescription medications may be diagnosed to alleviate pain and reduce the frequency and intensity of attacks.
- Hormone therapy can control many of the symptoms of hormonal changes, such as those during menopause. In many cases, this can be effective at reducing migraine symptoms.
- Lifestyle changes such as stress management, calming techniques, and meditation may reduce symptoms.
Although these treatments can be effective, they are limited in their capabilities and do not provide a magic cure. They may mitigate the frequency and intensity of migraine symptoms, but they do not completely eliminate the problem, nor are they effective in all cases. In addition, some medications may produce adverse side effects that are more unpleasant than the migraine headaches themselves. But there is one treatment shown to be particularly efficacious in reducing the severe pain associated with migraine headaches: ketamine infusion therapy.
The science behind Ketamine for migraines
Does Ketamine for migraines work?
Using Ketamine for migraines has proven results. A 2016 study showed ketamine infusion therapy for migraine treatment to be a highly successful method of treating painful symptoms in all patients. Even for sufferers of particularly stubborn migraines, the intense pain and frequency of headaches were reduced to a great degree. Medications and other treatment options require a commitment of several weeks or months and may not even be effective in the end. The process of administering Ketamine for migraines requires a few short infusion sessions until symptoms are relieved. This usually occurs before the third session but is often sooner. Migraine medicines often produce unwanted side effects, but ketamine infusion therapy has none. Patients report reduced symptoms and increased comfort as a result, with no lingering after-effects.
