Ketamine in the Media

We like to share information on ketamine treatments when we see it pop up, especially when they involve treatments that we offer where our patients have seen great success. Recently, published a short excerpt highlighting the benefits of ketamine as a treatment for chronic resistant depression, suicidal thoughts, and anxiety.

The episode from explores ketamine as a treatment for depression.

The medication is considered a dissociative anesthetic and has been used for decades as a pain reliever, but more recently, it has been used to also treat depression.

According to the video, ketamine works differently from traditional antidepressants, which can take several weeks to become effective. Ketamine can work within hours or days, and helps people with treatment-resistant depression or those who have not responded to other treatments.

A recent study is cited that found that ketamine reduced suicidal thoughts in patients with depression, and also it improved mood and anxiety levels. We will note that the study’s authors caution that more research is needed as the long-term effects of ketamine on the brain are still unknown.

Many clinics, such as SOMA, offer payment options.

The video also discusses how ketamine treatment can be expensive and is not covered by insurance. We accept Care Credit, offer payment plans, and can work with you to submit claims on your own. We also work with most major insurance companies to cover Spravato© treatments.

Finally, the video includes comments from a psychiatrist who cautions that ketamine is not a “magic bullet” for depression and that patients should work with a mental health professional to determine the best treatment plan for their individual needs.

One thing we emphasize not only to our patients but also our partnering mental health providers is that we do not replace your psychiatrist or therapist. We require a joint effort and will coordinate our treatment plans with your mental health provider to best treat you. Every care plan is unique.

At South Omaha Medical Associates we offer a variety of ketamine treatments, including intranasal Spravato© (Esketamine) and IV ketamine. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (531) 267-0711. We are currently accepting patients for both IV Ketamine treatments and Spravato©. We would also like to announce a second location coming soon near 144th & Center St. in Omaha NE!

Esketamine Nasal Spray Bests Quetiapine XR in Difficult-to-Treat Depression

According to this article on MPR, results have been announced from a trial phase that compared

“the short- and long-term efficacy, safety, and tolerability of esketamine nasal spray to quetiapine extended-release (XR) in adults with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder.”

In other words, patients who were given  Spravato® were shown to have achieved remission at week 8 and remain relapse free in the longer term up to week 32 compared to patients on Seroquel XR.

Según este artículo sobre MPR, se han anunciado los resultados de una fase de ensayo que comparó

“la eficacia, la seguridad y la tolerabilidad a corto y largo plazo del aerosol nasal de esketamina con la liberación prolongada (XR) de quetiapina en adultos con enfermedades graves resistentes al tratamiento para desordenes depresivos.”

(traducido internamente por SOMA)

En otras palabras, se demostró que los pacientes que recibieron Spravato® lograron la remisión en la semana 8 y permanecieron libres de recaídas a largo plazo hasta la semana 32 en comparación con los pacientes que recibieron Seroquel XR.

We are a Spravato REMS certified clinic and would be happy to help you seek treatment today.

Nebraska Ketamine therapy

SOMA is a Spravato certified REMS center!

What is Spravato® Therapy?

SPRAVATO®  (esketamine) is an effective method in treating adults with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). It is an intranasal prescription medicine, used along with an antidepressant taken by mouth, for Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD) in adults. TRD is defined as the failure of two or more oral antidepressants of adequate dose and duration. 

If you are struggling with depression and have tried two or more antidepressants without relief, it’s time to talk to your doctor or schedule an evaluation to see if Spravato®  is the answer.

Each treatment lasts about two hours where patients are monitored in a comfortable setting in our clinics.  (Due to the side effects of the Spravato®  treatment, you are not allowed to drive afterward – you must have a friend, family member, or a ride share service pick you up.) We have a number of available room choices depending on what you like to do during your treatments.

Any specific questions please call us at: 531-267-0711
