TREATMENT FOR

BIPOLAR DISORDER

KETAMINE FOR BIPOLAR DISORDER

Bipolar disorder has proven to be one of the most challenging mental illnesses to treat. Bipolar disorder has highly variable symptoms, and it can often take years to get an accurate diagnosis. Bipolar disorder causes rapid mood swings between depression and mania. People with Bipolar Disorder will often feel euphoric one day, only to feel extremely depressed the next moment. Although the manic periods can seem ecstatic, most patients agree that the depressed stages (that can last on for weeks) make the mental illness unbearable overall. Consequently, many people who have bipolar disorder struggle in their day to day life,  maintaining functional relationships, and have trouble focussing on study or work.

What causes Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder has highly variable symptoms, and it can often take years to get an accurate diagnosis. Bipolar Disorder causes rapid mood swings between depression and mania. People with bipolar disorder will often feel euphoric one day, only to feel extremely depressed the next moment. Although the manic periods can seem ecstatic, most patients agree that the depressed stages (that can last on for weeks) make the mental illness unbearable overall. Consequently, many people who have Bipolar Disorder struggle in their day to day life,  maintaining functional relationships, and have trouble focussing on study or work.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder:

  • Experiencing periods of extreme elation followed by periods of extreme depression

  • Restlessness, poor concentration, rapid speech, and forming unrealistic plans

How is Bipolar Disorder treated?
 

In conventional cases, bipolar disorder is usually treated with the help of mood stabilizers. Unfortunately, these drugs often have adverse side effects that can impair a patient’s ability to live a normal life and have proven to be ineffective in many cases. Fortunately, recent research has found that ketamine treatments can be highly effective for treating the depressive phase of Bipolar Disorder. helping the brain to cope with the extreme feelings of pain and agony.

Ketamine is generally a great option for patients who experience severe periods of depression or angry outbursts. When outbursts occur less frequently, patients tend to feel less afraid of harming their loved ones. Patients also usually report fewer night terrors associated with their mental illness.
