Unlike antidepressants and other medications commonly prescribed for bipolar patients, using ketamine to treat bipolar depression can offer significant relief within the span of a few hours.
Many patients notice relief from symptoms within hours and longer-lasting relief within the days following their second infusion. The best part is that there isn’t concern about any negative side-effects that accompany many conventional antidepressants.
Ketamine therapy has been used as an effective substitute for treatments like ECT and TMS, which might require months of costly, continuous treatment just before the patient sees results.
To get the most out of your treatment, you must educate yourself about bipolar disorder and trust the treatment plan your doctor, therapist, or healthcare provider has set out for you.
