Do you suffer from depression? Major Depressive Disorder manifests in about 7.1% of the U.S. population in a given year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, with even higher rates across a lifetime. As you seek treatment for this condition, Psyche in Denver, CO, can help. We offer a variety of depression treatment options, including some of the newest and most advanced options available, for people with depression that does not get better with standard medication and therapy.
How Can We Help You?
Depression can seem never ending, but with the right treatment, recovery and relief are possible. For people who have not gotten better with depression treatment in the past, the frustration can be intense, but with new, advanced treatment options, like the ones offered at Psyche, recovery is becoming a reality for more people every day. To fight treatment-resistant depression, Psyche provides the following services:
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure in which a powerful magnet, similar to one found in an MRI scanner, is used to stimulate and heal the area of the brain that is affected by depression. Though many people may not have heard of it, this treatment has been cleared by the FDA and is recognized as an effective treatment for depression by the American Psychiatric Association. This treatment is very effective in reducing and often stopping the symptoms of depression for people with depression that has not responded to more traditional medications and therapy. It is also a good choice for people who tend to have negative side effects from medication.
Each session takes less than half an hour, but the best results come from daily therapy for four to six weeks.
Intranasal esketamine (a form of ketamine) therapy is administered in the office for patients with treatment resistant depression and major depressive disorder with acute suicidal ideation. This mediation is taken in conjunction with an oral antidepressant. This option can help to boost the effect of a more traditional antidepressant in people who have not gotten relief from those medications alone.
Psyche can help you understand if this is the right treatment option for you. As it can cause some side effects like sleepiness, dizziness, or dissociation, we carefully evaluate our patients for this and all treatments, and we monitor throughout the treatment process to increase safety, according to guidelines established by the FDA.
The team at Psyche is pleased to provide evaluation of psychiatric condition(s) as well as your past and current medication treatment. We are experts in psychiatric pharmacology, and we will work with you to determine a medication plan that you can understand and feel comfortable with, then we will prescribe any needed medication and follow up with you over time, making adjustments as necessary. Our knowledge of medication management for depression can help you by going beyond some of the more traditional treatment approaches, combining science and caring to help overcome depression while minimizing side effects.
You may be a candidate for more than one of these treatment options! Our experts can help you decide if pursuing multiple treatment strategies simultaneously will give you a better chance at experiencing relief from your symptoms. Often, people with depression start to accept that they will never fully recover. With powerful new treatment options, and Psyche’s commitment to continually offering the latest in evidence-based depression treatment, we see patients every day who experience recovery that they did not believe was possible!
