Episode 35 - Alternative treatments for mental health with Dr. D Dubose
Dr. D Dubose, a renowned psychiatrist and certified transcranial magnetic stimulation physician, shares his insights on alternative treatments for mental health, particularly in his work with ketamine and TMS. He specializes in treatment-resistant depression and has seen the devastating impact of depression on individuals and their families. Dr. Dubose believes that the stigma and lack of knowledge about these treatments have been a barrier to people getting the help they need.
History of Ketamine
Ketamine has been used since 1963 as an anesthetic, but it was observed 20 years ago that it had an antidepressant effect, which scientists researched and eventually led to the FDA approval of Esketamine, a nasal spray called Spravato. Ketamine and TMS have shown themselves to be effective modalities for treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and other mental health problems. Dr. Dubose stresses the importance of patients having access to more options to treat difficult mental health problems.
