THE SYMPTOMS

While your psychiatrist would be able to assess the health issue, it’s necessary to understand the psychotic depression symptoms and causes that could include:

  • Prolonged agitated behavior
  • Feelings of prolonged anxiety
  • Extreme aggression and mood instability

THE SYMPTOMS

  • Confusion or constant worries and fear or apprehension
  • Instances of insomnia, delusions, and hallucinations
  • Physical immobility could be a concern

TREATMENT OF
PSYCHOTIC DEPRESSION

The psychotic depression treatment is often done in a clinical or hospital setting. With regular monitoring, the psychiatrist, a professional in the field, is capable of using various medicines that can stabilize the mood and make things better for the patient. This is achieved using combinations of antidepressants and antipsychotic medications. The use of proper medications activates the neurotransmitters which allow communication between the nerve cells and brain areas that regulate the patients’ ability to organize thoughts that help them to perceive reality better. The treatment is generally safe and patients adapt well to the medications too. In case your loved one has symptoms of psychotic depression, do not delay the treatment, speak to psychiatrists at SCPC TMS today, and schedule a consultation.



EFFECTIVENESS OF PSYCHOTIC DEPRESSION TREATMENT

While psychotic depression causes can be many, the treatment is often very effective. Most patients tend to recover in months but medical follow-up is almost always advised. At times, a regular follow-up could become necessary. In some cases, the treatment may not be as effective as expected. When this happens, the psychiatrists make use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). SCPC TMS psychiatrists would be able to assess the symptoms better and suggest a treatment plan. Never ignore psychotic depression. A well-planned treatment can help most of the time. Speak to a psychiatrist today.
