Flashback to the year 1987 . . .
A time when the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozac) first hit the market as an FDA-approved antidepressant. It was a life-changing drug that brought astonishing results to depressed patients across the globe.
Now, in 2019 . . .
Here we are, almost Thirty-three years after the introduction of Prozac. It’s been decades, but depression is still the leading cause of disability and poor health worldwide. Even though we’re thankful for Prozac and its major contribution to the mental health field, we know that antidepressants don’t work or cause unwanted side effects for one-third of people.
At Montana Psychiatry, we turn to innovative solutions for relief and restoration for our patients. Tools that help us truly help get people well. Tools like IV Ketamine and its proven transformative benefits.
Rapid Relief of Symptoms
Based on searches of major medical centers over the past 15 years and in our clinic’s experience, up to 70% of all patients may experience significant and rapid relief. In some cases, that’s relief within hours! IV Ketamine is a treatment option for those who have lived under the weighted blanket of major depression and despair. It can bring renewed energy, hope, motivation, and relief.
Ketamine Treatment for Mood Disorders is NOT One-Size-Fits-All
Ketamine infusions can trigger actual changes in your brain structures and systems. These changes can give you the best chance of remission. But, for some patients, more treatments may be necessary for you to achieve remission.
With ketamine clinics popping up everywhere, it’s important to choose a psychiatrist who is skilled in administering ketamine for your best chance of remission. If you or someone you love suffers from major depression, know that there is hope beyond traditional treatment. IV Ketamine is available at Montana Psychiatry to help rapidly improve your mood and functioning.
