ketamine for depression

Ketamine treatment plan for depression

There are many times in life when solutions to a problem are not ‘one size fits all’. What works for one person simply doesn’t always work for another, and in certain cases, there are large group of people who are left floundering, simply because they don’t fit ‘the norm’.

What is the ‘norm’ anyway? We are all individual, and that means we all respond to all situations in life totally differently.

If you are a sufferer of depression, and you have been for a long time, you have probably tried antidepressant medications, perhaps even more than one. For many people, this treatment route works, but for many others, it simply doesn’t. What are those people supposed to do?

Thankfully, there is another option at hand, and here at Trifeca Health, we are dedicated to helping those who simply don’t respond to antidepressants. Under the watchful eye of NYC Psychiatrist  Dr Edward Fruitman, M.D., we offer a Ketamine treatment plan for depression which is resistant to antidepressant medication.

First things first however, why is it that some people simply don’t tolerate antidepressants?

Regular antidepressants can take a while to work, and that could mean that the sufferer simply can’t wait long enough for the relief effects to work. On top of this, there are often side effects which come attached to these medications, and whilst many people can deal with them, not everyone can. If the effects are prolonged and unpleasant, this can have a counteracting effect on the person’s depression too, which makes them feel even more down, and even more hopeless. It’s a vicious circle.

The key to treating depression is to get the right balance for each individual person. Here at Trifecta Health, we recognise the key role that Ketamine has to play in depression relief. This is an old anaesthetic medication, but it has been shown to help relieve depression symptoms quite quickly in patients who have had no joy or response in the past to regular antidepressant medications.

Of course, Ketamine is a strong drug, and should only be taken in a controlled and regimented manner. For that reason, those patients who we believe could benefit from taking Ketamine for their depression symptoms are put onto a strict treatment plan, which is monitored and reviewed on a regular basis. Many patients also find relief of their symptoms to some degree around 24-48 hours after their first treatment, and if nothing occurs during this time, that is a strong indicator that Ketamine is not the right option for that particular person. The fact that the drug is so fast acting is therefore what makes it so impressive.

The bottom line here is that anyone struggling with depression should not be struggling alone. Antidepressant medications are not effective for everyone, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have another road to look down. We are committed to helping sufferers of unresponsive depression, and we have several treatment options to discuss. If this sounds like something that you would like to discuss further, don’t hesitate to give us a call today.

Help is Closer Than You Realize!

No matter who you are, it’s harder to ask for help than many people give credit for. Whether it’s out of pride, worry, fear, or something else entirely, saying the words ‘help me’ is one of the hardest things for a human to do.

Here at Trifecta Health in New York we are under no illusions about this subject, and whenever someone reaches out to us for assistance, we deal with it in the most sympathetic and proactive method possible. Under the watchful eye of Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. we offer a huge range of services across a variety of different subject matters.

But, first things first, how do you utter those immortal words?

Nobody is going to accept help until they are ready, and it’s often said that you will know it when the time comes. How do you recognize this? Perhaps a true feeling of desperation, a willingness to accept anything that makes you feel better, not being able to see a light but desperately wanting to do so. These are all signs that the time is coming, and when it comes, you are certainly not alone.

The good news is that you do not have to travel too far to venture to one of Trifecta Health NYC offices, to gain that all-important assistance that will put you on the road to recovery. Whether you are struggling with adult attention deficit disorder (ADD/ ADHD), depression and anxiety, weight issues, substance and alcohol misuse, or something else entirely, we have four offices which are strategically located to be in close distance to everyone who needs our expert help.

We have an office in Downtown, on Broadway to be specific ( 115 Broadway, Suite 1300, New York, NY 10006. Tel: (212) 233-2830) , another in Midtown (1430 Broadway, Suite 900, New York, NY 10018. Tel: (212) 302-1848) , one in Central Park West (415 Central Park West, Suite 1AF, New York, NY 10025. Tel: (917) 745-3885), and earlier this year we opened our Park Avenue office ( 30 E 60th Street, Suite 2403, New York, NY 10022. Tel: (212) 233-2838), which means that no matter where you’re residing, and no matter where you’re working, help is only within a quick drive or stone’s throw away from you.

Trifecta Health is a private confidential clinics in New York that offers adult ADHD, Depression,  Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatments and Weight Management services.

Guided by renowned Top NYC Psychiatrist, Dr. Edward Fruitman M.D., Trifecta Health combines expert psychopharmacology and psychotherapy to create a tailored treatment plan specific to each individual’s needs.

You can easily factor consultations and treatment into your day if you work, and it goes without saying that we are ultra-confidential, meaning that your appointment is not going to be displayed for all to see when entering and leaving your consultation.

Picking up the telephone and making that first call is going to be the hardest part of the deal, but once that mountain is overcome, the view from the top will be fantastic in time. Of course, we are all too aware of the struggle that many people encounter with making that first move, and that is why our staff are trained in their profession to the highest standard.

Nothing is harder than admitting a perceived failing, but then asking for help is certainly not a failing, it is a huge strength that you should be congratulated for, and something you should give yourself a huge pat on the back for. Only once you have made this step can you look forward to reaping the rewards of your actions, and here at Trifecta Health, we offer some of the greatest rewards around.

Let us help you climb your own personal mountain, and give us a call today at (800) 385-3905.

Get Help from Trifecta Health

“Help, I need somebody, Help! Not just anybody …”

The Beatles bopped along to this major hit back in the day, but perhaps they didn’t realize the profound effects of their words so many years down the line.

What is the hardest word for you to say?

Is it “sorry”, is it “please”, is it something else?

For many people, especially someone who is really struggling, the hardest word to say is certainly ‘help’.

Admitting that you need help is a strong thing to do; there is certainly on failing in saying “please help me, I’m struggling”, if anything, you’re displaying strong leadership and strength in yourself. For many however, that first step can be a difficult one to pluck up the courage to take.

“Help me if you can I’m feeling down …”

If you have ever suffered with the effects of depression, you probably couldn’t put your finger on how it felt; maybe you just felt sad, maybe you saw no brightness in the world, maybe you just felt completely and utterly dark and dismal. When you are struggling with these feelings, it’s difficult to seek help because you’re scared that your symptoms and feelings will be dismissed as just going through a tough time. The truth of the matter is however that you aren’t just going through a tough time, you’re struggling with a very real condition.

When you seek help, you will be greeted with a kind, warm, and helpful person who will talk to you and go through the treatment options. Here at Trifecta Health, we appreciate the struggle that many people go through in order to come to us, and we envy your strength and courage to do just that. From there, life gets easier because you are on the track to getting better.
