Effective Treatment for Bipolar Disorder

Effective Treatment for Bipolar Disorder

If you’re one of the almost 6 million Americans who suffer from bipolar disorder, I have news for you. Treatment is here, and it works!

According to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), bipolar disorder is the 6th leading cause of disability, and can decrease your lifespan by over 9 years! More than 20 % of people who suffer from bipolar disorder contemplate suicide. Lastly, it can often take over 10 years to get an accurate diagnosis. Only 1 in 4 are able to obtain an accurate diagnosis in less than 3 years.

Bipolar disease can reveal itself at any age from early childhood through a person’s 40’s and 50’s. If you have a parent who suffers from depression or bipolar disorder, your chances of struggling with this disease are increased. Lastly, while this affects both men and women equally, women tend to have greater depression symptoms. This can present treatment challenges, as traditional treatment for depression can result in manic episodes for persons suffering with bipolar disorder.

Success rates with Lithium, which is considered by some the gold standard for bipolar treatment, are only around 40-50%. In addition, individuals who are fortunate enough to be successful with medications still deal with constant monitoring and unpleasant side-effects.

There is now an option.

Ketamine infusion therapy offers an effective strategy to control the depression in Bipolar Disorder without causing a manic episode, as many traditional antidepressant medications do. In addition, traditional “mood stabilizers” or antipsychotic drugs such as Abilify, can cause increased weight gain, sometimes by as much as 70-100 pounds. For someone struggling with depression, weight gain is counter-productive, increases depression and causes self-esteem issues. When you suffer from any chronic condition, the last thing you need is something that makes you feel worse about yourself. Ketamine therapy can control the depressive part of bipolar disorder without the unwanted and worsening side effects. If you suffer from Bipolar Disorder, especially Bipolar II (which is primarily depressive episode) this may be the answer for you.
