Treatment Resistant Depression
Have you been treated for depression but your symptoms haven’t improved, you may have treatment-resistant depression. Taking an antidepressant or going to psychological counseling (psychotherapy) eases depression symptoms for most people. But with treatment-resistant depression, standard treatments aren’t enough. They may not help much at all, or your symptoms may improve, only to keep coming back. They also have significant debilitating side effects, such as headaches, nausea & vomiting, sexual issues, and high blood pressure.
If you have been prescribed by your doctor a number of antidepressants and your depression symptoms continue despite treatment, contact Synergy of Monticello Inc for other specialized treatments for your Depression.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Synergy of Monticello Inc. offers TMS which is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective.
This treatment for depression involves delivering repetitive magnetic pulses, so it’s called repetitive TMS. TMS is typically used when standard treatments such as medications and talk therapy (psychotherapy) don’t work.
Spravato is another form of Depression resistant treatment that Synergy of Monticello Inc offers. Spravato is a brand-name prescription medication that’s prescribed for treatment-resistant depression (TRD). TRD is depression that hasn’t improved after treatment with two or more antidepressants. Spravato contains the drug esketamine. It’s approved for use in adults, but not in children.
Spravato comes as a nasal spray. It’s taken under the supervision of a healthcare provider at a certified medical facility. Spravato should be used in combination with at least one other antidepressant medication that’s taken by mouth. Spravato is administered once or twice a week for a duration established by your doctor.
