Anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18% of the population every year.
Understanding Severe Anxiety
Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, severe anxiety disorders can seriously affect day-to-day living. Normal anxiety is a natural reaction to stress. Anxiety motivates you to move away from dangerous situation, complete projects or assignments, and pay attention to your surroundings. An anxiety disorder, however, involves intense and excessive anxiety - and usually includes other longer-lasting symptoms, including: feelings of detachment, impairment, persistent worrying or obsession with concerns, inability to relax, trouble sleeping, fatigue, body aches, and more.
Severe anxiety is highly treatable, yet only 37% of those suffering receive treatment. This is unfortunate because anxiety disorders respond well to ketamine infusion therapy.
Ketamine Infusion Therapy for Severe Anxiety
Low dose ketamine infusion may be a useful treatment for patients with severe anxiety that do not respond to usual treatments. In a recent study, Ketamine was shown to have rapid benefit in treatment resistant general and social anxiety disorders, with relief for up to seven days.
