Anxiety Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a group of mental health conditions that trigger persistent, invasive, and often irrational fears and worries that interfere with your ability to function. 

Generalized anxiety disorder is the most prevalent type of anxiety, causing fears about everyday issues like family, health, work, and chores. Other types of anxiety, such as separation anxiety and social anxiety, cause specific worries.

While everyone feels nervous or anxious from time to time, anxiety disorders cause distressing symptoms that interfere with your ability to complete your regular activities and disrupt your quality of life. You may start to avoid certain situations, places, or even people who trigger your anxious feelings. 


When should I talk to a doctor about anxiety?

You should make an appointment to talk to a doctor about your anxiety when your symptoms interfere with your life. Anxiety is treatable, and you can learn to manage your negative thoughts and feelings before they impact your behavior. 


How is anxiety treated?

Traditionally, anxiety is treated with a combination of medication and therapy. However, conventional treatment doesn’t work for everyone. 

Charlotte Ketamine Center provides evidence-based ketamine therapy, including intravenous infusions and inhaled nebulizer options. 

Ketamine affects different neurotransmitters and often provides rapid relief of anxiety symptoms when other treatments have failed. In most cases, you have an initial course of treatments followed by one or two maintenance treatments a month, depending on your needs. 

All ketamine treatments are provided in the comfortable, professional offices at Charlotte Ketamine Center. 

A member of the clinical team stays with you throughout your treatment and observes you for up to two hours after your treatment to monitor the immediate effects of the medicine. 

Some patients experience “out of body” or floating sensations or become extremely tired. You need a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointments. 


How do I know if ketamine therapy is right for me?

If you have an anxiety disorder, but conventional treatments haven’t worked for you, make an appointment at Charlotte Ketamine Center. They offer thorough exams and consultations to determine if ketamine therapy is a treatment option for you.
