Ketamine Infusions for Bipolar Disorder

Those suffering from Bipolar Depression experience consistent changes in mood and energy levels. Manic episodes are periods of feeling very “up” and energized, and depressive episodes are the “down” or hopeless periods. Generally speaking, there are four different variations of Bipolar Disorder, but they all experience both manic and depressive episodes.

One of the innovative new treatment options available for bipolar disorder, Ketamine is an FDA-approved anesthetic that research shows can bring relief in up to 80% of patients.

The Four Types of Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar I Disorder – This consists of manic episodes that last at least a week at a time, or manic episodes featuring symptoms so severe that the person should seek immediate medical care. Those with this type of Bipolar Disorder often also experience depressive episodes that last around two weeks at a time. They may also experience episodes featuring symptoms from both manic and depressive episodes at the same time.

Bipolar II Disorder – Those with Bipolar II Disorder still experience hypomanic and depressive episodes, but don’t experience symptoms as strong as Bipolar I.

Cyclothymic Disorder (Cyclothymia) – This disorder is defined by periods of numerous periods of depressive and hypomanic episodes that last for at least 1 year (in children/adolescents) or 2 years for adults, but these symptoms may not meet the traditional requirements for hypomanic or depressive episodes.

Other Specified/Unspecified Bipolar Disorders – There are some other Bipolar Disorders that do not match these three categories but still are classified as Bipolar Disorder.

When should I seek treatment?

Those suffering from Bipolar Disorder are often unable to see how their condition and emotional instability are affecting their lives and the lives of their loved ones, and therefore don’t receive the treatment they need. If you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of depression or mania, you should seek medical treatment from a doctor or mental health professional.

What are the signs of a manic episode?

  • An increase in energy levels
  • An increase in activity levels
  • Feelings of jumpiness
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Sped up speaking and thinking
  • Take on a lot of projects at once
