Be Honest With Providers

At avIVa Infusions, you will have a free consultation with an experienced physician who will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs. Once you are cleared for ketamine therapy to treat your bipolar disorder, we will schedule your treatments and let you know everything about how to prepare and what to expect during and after.

Stay Consistent

An essential part of the healing process is to develop a healthcare plan and stick to it. Do not skip ketamine infusions, psychotherapy sessions, or neglect to take your prescribed medications. These treatments may take months at a time, and they may not alleviate all of your symptoms, but recovery takes time. Have patience and trust your healthcare providers.

Educate Yourself

To learn is to understand, and to understand it to heal. Learn as much as you can about your disorder so that you pick up new ways to combat it. Your family and friends can also become educated on the nature of your symptoms so that they too can help understand and help you towards feeling better.

Keep a Journal

You should also work with your therapist and/or healthcare provider to learn what triggers your symptoms. It may help to keep a journal so that you can discover patterns in your manic or depressive episodes. This way, with the help of your therapist and/or healthcare provider, you can formulate a plan on what to do next time one of your symptoms begins to show.

Take Care of Yourself

It’s important to keep in mind that while alcohol and/or drugs may help reduce the pain of bipolar symptoms temporarily, they will only create more problems and worsen your symptoms in the long run. It also carries the risk of making your illness harder to treat.

Eat Well

Beyond this, try to make sure you’re eating healthy whenever possible, as well as making physical activity a priority. It can come in the form of walking, jogging, swimming, working in the garden, or cycling. Also, try your best to keep a consistent sleep schedule. These activities combined can help you feel some relief from your symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder, sometimes referred to as bipolar depression or manic depression, is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings of emotional highs (known as mania) and lows (known as depression).

During periods of depression, you may experience feelings of sadness or hopelessness, and you may lose interest in your hobbies. When you experience periods of mania, or the less extreme form called hypomania, you may feel euphoric or energetic. These extreme mood swings affect sleep patterns, energy levels, behavior, and your ability to think clearly.

These mood swings typically only occur a few times a year, but bipolar disorder is nevertheless a lifelong condition that cannot be “cured” in the traditional manner of speaking. Fortunately, there are treatments both old and new that can provide relief from symptoms.

What are the types of bipolar disorder?

There are a few different types of bipolar disorder, but all of them have common symptoms of manic and depressive episodes. It is important 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.

Manic/Hypomanic Episodes

Hypomania is a less severe form of mania, but they feature almost exactly the same symptoms. Mania and hypomania both can lead to problems in your performance at work or in school or conflict in your personal relationships. In severe cases, mania can even trigger a break from reality, psychosis, and can require hospitalization for proper treatment. To be classified as a manic or hypomanic episode, you must have at least three of the following symptoms:

  • Being abnormally energetic
  • Increased agitation
  • Euphoria (an exaggerated sense of self-confidence)
  • Change in sleep patterns
  • Unusual talkativeness
  • Being easily distracted
  • Poor decision-making
Depressive Episodes

Major depression comes in episodes with symptoms strong enough to make your everyday life exceedingly difficult. You may find it hard to keep up with your everyday responsibilities. The common symptoms of depressive episodes are:

  • Feelings of sadness
  • Feelings of emptiness
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in hobbies
  • Changes in appetite
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of guilt and shame
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions
