The Difference between Psycholytic and Psychedelic Doses of Ketamine

Welcome to MINDEllipse, a virtual mental health clinic specializing in at-home ketamine treatment for depression and anxiety. Our goal is to help you achieve a sense of peace and wellness in the comfort of your own home. We offer two different plans, New Beginnings, and Long-Lasting Peace, that vary in their administration of ketamine. In this article, we will explore the difference between psycholytic and psychedelic doses of ketamine and how they can help those suffering from depression and anxiety.

Ketamine is a dissociative medicine found to have promising results in treating depression and anxiety. MINDEllipse offers two plans for at-home ketamine treatment: New Beginnings and Long-Lasting Peace. The New Beginnings Plan is a macrodose plan which involves the administration of a psychedelic dose of ketamine twice a week. This dose is intended to take patients on a “trip,” similar to the experiences one may have on other psychedelic substances such as MDMA or psilocybin. This experience aims to help individuals confront and work through their underlying psychological issues.

On the other hand, Long-Lasting Peace is a plan consisting of a daily microdose of ketamine. This dose is intended to provide patients with a psycholytic experience, which means it is not psychedelic but still affects the psyche. Rather than taking individuals on a “trip,” this dose is intended to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety, such as low mood, lack of motivation, and negative thought patterns.

The main difference between a psychedelic and psycholytic dose of ketamine is the amount of the medicine administered. A psychedelic dose of ketamine is typically much larger than a psycholytic dose and is intended to take the individual to a different state of consciousness. However, a psycholytic dose is much smaller and designed to be more therapeutic. Both doses are effective in treating depression and anxiety, but they work differently.

One of the benefits of at-home ketamine treatment with MINDEllipse is the ability to choose which plan is right for you. For some individuals, a psychedelic experience may be necessary to confront and work through their underlying psychological issues. For others, a daily dose of ketamine may provide a more sustainable and manageable level of relief from symptoms of depression and anxiety.

In conclusion, at-home ketamine treatment with MINDEllipse allows individuals to choose between a psychedelic or psycholytic dose of ketamine. Both doses have been found to be effective in treating depression and anxiety. New Beginnings offers a macrodose of ketamine twice a week, intended to provide a psychedelic experience for patients. Long-Lasting Peace offers a daily microdose of ketamine, which provides a psycholytic experience designed to relieve depression and anxiety symptoms. With MINDEllipse, individuals can choose which plan suits their unique needs and preferences.
