Common questions about ADHD & Mood Disorders + ketamine.
When should I get help for ADHD?
ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects the brain’s executive functioning skills, including attention, focus, and impulse control. When you have ADHD, your brain may struggle to regulate these skills, causing challenges in daily life.
While it’s natural to experience occasional distractibility, forgetfulness, or restlessness, persistent symptoms that interfere with your ability to function can indicate ADHD. These symptoms can affect your work or school performance, relationships, and overall quality of life.
If you find that your symptoms of ADHD are impacting your daily life, it may be time to seek help.

How does ketamine infusion therapy treat ADHD & Mood Disorders?
Ketamine infusion therapy has been found to be effective in treating both ADHD and mood disorders. Ketamine works by interacting with glutamate, a neurotransmitter that is involved in mood regulation, attention, and executive functioning skills. This interaction helps to rebalance brain chemicals and create new nerve connections, leading to improved symptoms.
Overall, ketamine infusion therapy has shown promise in treating ADHD and mood disorders by targeting the underlying brain chemistry that contributes to these conditions. If you are struggling with ADHD or a mood disorder and traditional treatments have not provided relief, ketamine therapy may be an option worth considering.
