What Are The Signs and Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder shows up in a wide range of ways. Signs and symptoms and intensity levels differ from one person to another. A number of people experience numerous symptoms whilst others only experience only a few. Among the most prevalent symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling sad, hopeless, or irritable most of the time.
  • Lacking energy.
  • Difficulty concentrating and remembering things.
  • Loss of interest in everyday activities.
  • Feelings of emptiness or worthlessness.
  • Feelings of guilt and despair.
  • Feeling pessimistic 
  • Self-doubt.

What are the Types of Bipolar Disorder?

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

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 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.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat Bipolar Disorder?

It is believed that one of the leading causes of bipolar disorder and various other mood disorders is the overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps anxiety by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the effects of anxiety symptoms.

By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may be able to amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the empty space between neurons. Glutamate then interacts with the AMPA receptors.

Together, these receptors bring about the discharge of multiple molecules that boost the brain’s neuroplasticity – essentially, ketamine infusions allow the brain to reset and restore important nerve connections.

What is The Ketamine Experience Like?

During your ketamine treatment for bipolar disorder, we go above and beyond to make sure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their own private rooms. Infusions typically last 45-60 minutes for mood disorders, while infusions for chronic pain conditions require a larger dose.

A number of patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this dissociation effect is what aids with your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy.

These are all ordinary components of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team there to monitor you and be readily available during your infusion.

What are The Side-Effects of Ketamine Treatment?

As a new treatment option for bipolar disorder, ketamine does have a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, disrupted vision, lightheadedness, nausea, or some slight anxious feelings during treatment.

Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication utilized in “off-label” use for infusion therapy. 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 with time.

Ketamine may cause a slight elevation in heart rate and blood pressure.
