Ketamine - A New Treatment for Bipolar Disorder
According to the National Institute of Mental Health,
around 2.8% of adults in the United States had bipolar disorder in the past year. Of those cases, around 83% of them had serious impairment. Unfortunately, a great many of these cases of Bipolar Disorder have proven treatment-resistant, even after multiple attempts and several different antidepressants.
Ketamine is an exciting new avenue for those seeking treatment because the effects of Ketamine’s relief on the symptoms of depression can be felt within hours, rather than the usual four-to-six weeks it takes for a standard antidepressant medication to take hold.
