Bipolar Disorder Q & A
What is bipolar disorder?
Formerly called manic-depression, bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes extreme shifts in your mood, energy, and ability to function. Symptoms of bipolar disorder occur in distinct states (episodes) that include:
A manic episode involves high energy and activity along with an exaggerated sense of well-being or self-confidence. During a manic episode, you may experience a break from reality (psychosis). Mania causes symptoms that last at least seven days or are so severe that they require hospitalization.
A hypomanic episode involves many of the same symptoms as mania but is less severe than a full-blown manic episode. Hypomania may involve increased talkativeness and a decreased need for sleep, but not the psychosis or extremely dangerous behavior of mania.
Most people with bipolar disorder experience at least one depressive episode. Symptoms of depression include changes in sleep patterns, appetite, and persistent feelings of hopelessness. Severe episodes of depression may lead to suicidal thoughts or attempts.
If you’re thinking about hurting yourself, go to the nearest emergency room or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988 right away.
How does ketamine infusion therapy treat bipolar disorder?
If you have a clinical diagnosis of bipolar disorder and continue to experience moderate to severe symptoms despite these treatments, you may be a candidate for ketamine infusion therapy. We do not treat bipolar disorder in the manic phase.

Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic medication for decades. Now, ketamine offers rapid relief to people suffering from treatment-resistant psychiatric conditions like bipolar disorder.
