Depression Can Wear You Down Little by Little
Sometimes when you live with depression and anxiety, it’s not just one big thing. The little things can wear your down and make everyday life challenging. Feelings of sadness, anxiety, loss of interest, and hopelessness can accumulate and become crippling.
When treating depression with antidepressants, a 10 – 12-week trial is necessary to achieve remission. Despite the wonderful advances in antidepressants, one third of those treated don’t experience relief even after the 10-12 week window.
For that one third of people, the symptoms continue to linger and build. They likely worsen over time and the veil of depression and anxiety gets harder and harder to deal with. Luckily, there’s hope in ketamine treatments.
Rapid Relief Is Possible With Ketamine Infusions
Ketamine IV infusions are being used with great success in St. Louis for hard-to-treat cases of depression. The benefits of ketamine can be felt by the patient within 24 hours and can reverse suicidal tendencies thereby buying the patient and therapist more time for appropriate interventions.
In fact, research shows that up to 75% of patients who suffer from treatment-resistant psychiatric illnesses do experience quick and substantial relief after receiving ketamine infusions. Each case, of course, is different, but most patients who receive ketamine treatment do experience remission.
The only way to get better is to get help for what’s wrong.There’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about when it comes to treatment-resistant depression and anxiety. COPE St. Louis provides a comforting and non-judgmental environment to help get you on the road to healing.
