Bipolar depression, also known as bipolar disorder, is a mood disorder distinguished by alternating periods of mania and depression. Sufferers often feel extremely happy and full of energy during the manic stage but then fall into a period of misery and discord during the depression stage.
According to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, bipolar disorder is the 6th leading cause of disability and can decrease one’s lifespan by over 9 years. More than 20% of people who suffer from bipolar disorder contemplate suicide.
Unlike antidepressants and other medications commonly prescribed for bipolar patients, IV ketamine therapy provides significant relief in a matter of hours. Many patients notice relief from symptoms in just one or two days of their second infusion. They do not have to worry about any of the unpleasant side effects that are common among antidepressants. In fact, results of a 2015 study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Practice reveal ketamine therapy is especially effective in patients with treatment-resistant bipolar depression. Those who have tried conventional treatments and actively sought out help from support groups or counseling may benefit greatly from ketamine infusion therapy.
