The OCD Relief You’ve Been Searching For

Ketamine Infusion Therapy for OCD Treatment in Fort Worth, TX

At Vigeo Wellness in Fort Worth, TX, we are proud to offer the latest mental health treatment options. In addition to high levels of safety standards and patient care, we utilize ketamine infusion therapy for the treatment of OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), as well as other mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and PTSD that have not responded to traditional treatments or medications.

Our mission at Vigeo Wellness is to give those who are affected by OCD a second chance at taking back control of their life.  Ketamine infusions are a groundbreaking and efficient OCD treatment that have been scientifically proven to provide fast relief for those who have a treatment-resistant condition.

What are the Symptoms of OCD?

For many, OCD can be temporary, but for most, it will linger and bring on many episodes throughout one’s life. During these episodes, symptoms can look like:

  • Contamination Obsession with Washing and Cleaning Compulsion. Identified by obsessive notions about contamination and compulsions of extreme cleaning or washing.
  • Harm Obsessions with Checking Compulsions. Identified by obsessive thoughts about potential damage to yourself or others and compulsions including checking rituals to relieve your anxiety.
  • Symmetry Obsessions with Ordering/Arranging/Counting Compulsions. Characterized through obsessive thoughts about symmetry and compulsions to make every little thing orderly until they are “just right.”
  • Obsessions Without Visible Compulsions. Identified by intrusive thoughts about religious, intimate, or aggressive themes. Triggers related to these themes are typically steered clear of as much as possible.
  • Hoarding. Characterized through obsessive anxieties about getting rid of items or belongings you may need one day.

Why Ketamine for OCD?

Ketamine infusions are quickly becoming one of the most popular treatment options for various mood disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), depression, anxiety, PTSD, and bipolar disorder.

Unlike many traditional medications like SSRIs which can take months to start working, ketamine therapy offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat OCD?

Scientists believe that ketamine helps with OCD by rapidly boosting the activity of glutamate, a neurotransmitter inside the frontal cortex of the human brain, while also allowing new pathways to form in the same area.

The promptness of ketamine in yielding an antidepressant effect occurs because this drug bypasses the conventional serotonin path and goes straight to switching on glutamate.

This is remarkably different from conventional antidepressants, which initially boost serotonin activity levels in several different brain areas to ultimately affect glutamate. This process usually takes weeks, sometimes months, while ketamine produces an almost instant result and relief from anxiety symptoms.

Are There Any Adverse Effects of Ketamine?

As a new treatment option for OCD, ketamine has a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, double or blurred vision, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, and slight anxiety feelings after being given a dose. This treatment method is not in development because this is an FDA-approved drug utilized for “off-label” or less typical use.

An “off-label” use indicates that it is a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops in time.

As a good example, the medication Prazosin’s purpose was to treat hypertension in 1976. Still, it is now also used to treat nightmares in individuals with PTSD, a use that was not initially approved.

Where Will I Receive My Ketamine Infusions?

We strive to ensure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their private rooms during treatment.

A number of our patients refer to a “dissociation” effect. This disconnection effect aids your treatment and delivers a positive response to your ketamine therapy for many patients.

This is all an ordinary component of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team to monitor you and be readily available to you during your infusion.

Is Ketamine Treatment the Right Solution for You?

Are you ready to take back control of your life? Are you tired of trying one medication after the other to only be left with those same feelings of OCD? Then ketamine infusions might be an excellent option for you.
