Your wellness is our priority. Alivation’s medication management includes the use of prescription medication to help control symptoms of behavioral health problems. Patients who frequently experience severe anxiety, mood swings, ADHD and other mental health problems can find relief by using medication. Your doctor will get your full medical history and potentially initiate DNA testing to ensure the correct medication and help avoid the risk of side effects. If you are prescribed medication, your doctor will typically schedule a follow-up appointment in two to four weeks.

When a person experiences acute problems in life, medication can help. When the situation resolves itself, the patient will discontinue using medication. But sometimes, patients have a chronic condition where using medication on an ongoing basis greatly improves their quality of life.

Ketamine is fast-acting medication created in the 1960’s with several applications. It is currently being used as a treatment option for those suffering from treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Those who suffer from depression have a lower amount of BDNF factor, a protein related to depression, in their brain. Ketamine increases the synthesis of this protein, producing higher levels and more consistent levels in the brain. Ketamine also improves the functioning of one’s neuronal network, making it more effective and efficient. This correlates to improved mood, energy, motivation, concentration, along with lower anxiety.

These factors can lead to additional challenges in your daily life. For those who suffer from depression, hearing loss can further complicate one’s social life, leading to frustration and unease in social interactions.
