Help for Your Major Depression

Help for Your Major Depression

Major depressive disorder, also known as clinical depression, casts a cloud over your entire life. Your psychological symptoms of sadness, hopelessness, low energy, and even unexplained body pain make going to work or having fun with family and friends an almost impossible challenge.

For some individuals, treatment methods like antidepressant medications and therapeutic counseling don’t do enough to reduce the difficult symptoms of major depression. If you’re struggling with this kind of treatment-resistant depression, you should know that you still have options.

Dr. Bryant S. Edwards and the infusion therapy experts at Iconic Infusions, PLLC provide ketamine infusion treatments that effectively help with major depression symptoms. Come visit our Briarwood Hills, Fayetteville, North Carolina office, and learn more about how professionally monitored ketamine infusion therapy could improve your condition.

Treatment-resistant depression

Depression affects your life in multiple ways. Negative emotions like sadness seem to trap you, and you can’t maintain interest in your usual activities.

You might struggle to get enough sleep, or end up sleeping more than you physically need to, due to major depression. Depression affects your relationship with food, your ability to pursue your hobbies, and your most important personal relationships.

You don’t have to struggle with these symptoms alone. Even if antidepressant medications don’t relieve your condition, you still have effective treatment options available to you. Intravenous (IV) ketamine infusions can often help when nothing else seems to work.

How ketamine infusion therapy helps

Ketamine, historically used as a surgical anesthetic, provides effective treatment for many patients with otherwise treatment-resistant depression. Dr. Edwards uses low doses of ketamine to block N-Methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in your brain and trigger the growth of new neural connections.

As many as 70% of patients with major depression who try ketamine infusion therapy see improvement in their symptoms and condition. You feel results immediately after your infusion treatment, and results can be long-lasting.

At Iconic Infusions, PLLC, we approach major depression from a multidisciplinary angle, finding new ways to treat your condition and relieve your symptoms. Our goal is to restore you to full wellness. We work with a team of interdisciplinary experts to address your major depression effectively.

Getting started with ketamine infusion therapy for depression

Dr. Edwards reviews your symptoms and medical history before starting your treatment, then works with you to put together a custom infusion therapy plan. We can combine your IV ketamine treatments with IV vitamin therapies, oxygen therapy, and more, supporting and re-balancing your whole body/mind system.

Ketamine infusion therapy can have some moderate side effects. You might feel dizzy during your infusion therapy treatment, and it’s common for blood pressure to rise during treatment. But you don’t need to worry about these side effects damaging your long-term health or wellness, as most fade soon after your treatment session ends.
