What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder, previously known as manic depressive disorder, is a mood disorder characterized by extreme highs (known as mania) and extreme lows (depression). These drastic shifts can have broad effects on one’s behavior, energy, mood, cognition, and daily life. While there are both mild, moderate, and severe variations of Bipolar disorder, those afflicted experience erratic instances of depression, mania, and hypomania. Bipolar disorder carries with it the highest lifetime suicide risk of any psychiatric condition. Common treatments for Bipolar disorder include prescription pharmaceuticals such as mood stabilizers, antidepressants, and anti-anxiety medications. Counseling and psychotherapy are also common therapy options for those suffering from Bipolar disorder, particularly following extreme “up” or “down” episodes.

Ketamine: The New Hope in Bipolar Therapy

Because those with Bipolar disorder tend towards treatment-resistance, it has become a challenging mental health condition to treat in the worlds of pharmacology and psychotherapy. Ketamine therapy has been proven as a safe and innovative alternative to traditional care due to its ability to provide fast-acting relief of the most severe symptoms of bipolar disorder (manic, hypomanic, and depressive episodes). Often, patients who have seen little to no relief utilizing traditional therapies find a tremendous amount of sustained relief after their first week of ketamine treatments.

Backed by Evidence

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) conducted a well-known clinical review of ketamine in the treatment of Bipolar disorder demonstrating the promise of this breakthrough therapy in the treatment of such a challenging and burdensome condition concluding “Ketamine appears to have rapid antidepressive and antisuicidal effects”.
