What Are The Types Of Bipolar Disorder?

There are a few different types of bipolar disorder, but all of them have typical symptoms of manic and depressive episodes. It is essential to verify which type you are suffering from because treatments vary between them.

Bipolar I Disorder - Mania and Depression

Bipolar I disorder is the most common form of bipolar disorder, and it is also the most severe. You must have had at least one manic episode, but most people with bipolar I disorder have also gone through at least one major depressive episode.

Bipolar II Disorder - Hypomania and Depression

If you have bipolar II disorder, you will have recurring episodes of both major depression and hypomania (a less severe form of mania). If you ever go through a manic episode, your diagnosis will then be changed to bipolar I disorder.

Cyclothymia - Hypomania and Mild Depression

This is a milder form of bipolar disorder, where the mood swings are not severe enough to be classified as mania or major depression.

Why Ketamine for Bipolar Disorder?

Ketamine infusions are quickly becoming one of the most popular treatment options for bipolar disorder and various mood disorders, including treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and more.

Unlike many traditional medications like SSRIs which can take months to start working, ketamine therapy offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat Bipolar Disorder?

Scientists believe that ketamine helps with bipolar disorder by rapidly boosting the activity of glutamate, a neurotransmitter inside the frontal cortex of the human brain, while also allowing new pathways to form in the same area.

The promptness of ketamine in yielding an antidepressant effect occurs because this drug bypasses the conventional serotonin path and goes straight to switching on glutamate.

This is remarkably different from conventional antidepressants, which initially boost serotonin activity levels in several different areas of the brain to ultimately affect glutamate. This process usually takes weeks, sometimes months, while ketamine produces an almost instant result and relief from anxiety symptoms.

Are There Any Adverse Effects of Ketamine?

As a new treatment option for bipolar disorder, ketamine has a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, double or blurred vision, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, and slight anxiety feelings after being given a dose. This treatment method is not in development because this is an FDA-approved drug utilized for “off-label” or less typical use.

An “off-label” use indicates that it is a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops in time.

As a good example, the medication Prazosin’s purpose was to treat hypertension in 1976, but it is now also used to treat nightmares in individuals with PTSD, a use that was not initially approved.

Where Will I Receive My Ketamine Infusions?

We strive to ensure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their private rooms during treatment.

A number of our patients refer to a “dissociation” effect. For many patients, this disconnection effect aids your treatment and delivers a positive response to your ketamine therapy.

This is all an ordinary component of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team to monitor you and be readily available to you during your infusion.

Is Ketamine Treatment the Right Solution for You?

Are you ready to take back control of your life? Are you tired of trying one medication after the other to only be left with those same feelings brought on by your bipolar disorder? Then ketamine infusions might be an excellent treatment option for you.
