Lithium For Treatment Resistant Depression

New Depression Treatment | July 2016
Robert D. McMullen, MD 10 min Video About New Depression Treatment. want to know about new Depression treatments visit our website http://tmsbraincare.com/new-depression-treatment/ or visit our office: TMS BrainCare #2, 171 W 79th St, New York, NY 10024 tmsbraincare.com (212) 362-9635 Transcript ======================================================================== …I’m a psychiatrist and I specialize in treatment-resistant depression. I went to medical school at Georgetown University and I did my residency in Psychiatry at Columbia Presbyterian. For 36 years, I've been specializing mainly in the treatment of difficult psychiatric cases, depression as well as other illnesses and especially treatment-resistant depression. In the last 5 years, I have used a new modality called TMS (trans-cranial magnetic stimulation) and I'll get back to this but I want to mention a few other things that are new that help treatment-resistant depression. One thing is very low dose Lithium like only 150 milligrams a day whereas somebody with manic depression might be on 1200 and to our surprise this low dose often helps people with depression in a week or two. I have 36 people I’ve collected in the last two years that had a significant antidepressant effect within two weeks. Another thing that is somewhat new is taking vitamin D. We make this (it’s a hormone it’s not actually a vitamin, it’s a steroid hormone)… we make this in our skin, at least we make one step of making it, when the sun hits the skin. So all of us are low on this since we no longer are farmers, we are [Inaudible 01:55] and we work in offices and we [Inaudible 01:58] and people should take about 5000 IU once a day and there’s a small but significant proportion of people that they are being low on vitamin D is contributing to their depression. Another new modality is trans-cranial direct-current stimulation- that's a long name, but it means running a little electricity from say the shoulder over to the left forehead and this small amount of electricity has an effect on the brain which is been shown to help depression and I have used it in dozens and dozens of people and sometimes it has been successful. It’s not as successful as the TMS. The TMS is really a revolution in psychiatry. The first machine got FDA approved in 2008 and I obtained the machine in 2010. What it consists of is a giant magnet and the magnet is caused by running electricity through a copper coil and your pulse, enormous amount of electricity through this coil and that causes the magnet to go briefly on and briefly off. So if you put this magnet over the brain you can either stimulate a certain area of the brain, usually when you stimulate the left fore head, which is the left dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex technically or we do an inhibitory treatment on the right side of the brain and if it’s excitatory, it makes the neurons easier to discharge, if it's inhibitory it calms down the neurons and make them less easy to discharge and somehow this causes the depression to remit over about 2 or 3 weeks you'll see good benefits and then by 6 weeks you hope that at least half the people that their depression would be completely gone.

Optimizing Lithium Treatment
Mayo Clinic Psychiatrist Mark Frye, M.D., discusses how to best optimize lithium treatment. Lithium is a mainstay in bipolar disorder treatment and is commonly used to augment antidepressants for major depressive disorder. Research has found lithium to be quite helpful in stabilizing mood. Minor fluctuations in thyroid function due to lithium use and generally within the range of normal and not cause of concern.

What can be done for treatment resistant depression?
What Can Be Done for Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD) For more info https://tmsbraincare.com/can-done-treatment-resistant-depression-trd/ Robert D. McMullen, MD, a psychiatrist who has been working with people suffering from treatment-resistant depression (TRD) for over 30 years, reports that there are a variety of options that can be used to try to bring patients to 100% mood normalcy. Call (212) 362-9635 Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy has been very successful - often bringing complete relief to patients who have never had normal moods. TMS machines use two copper coils that touch each other, making a figure-eight electromagnetic field. Different parameters can be use with TMS, such as adjusting the pulses and placements of the coils on the head. Various combinations can be tried until the individual get the optimal results. If a person is not brought 100% to feeling normal, medicines that augment TMS can be added to the treatment. These include the traditional anti-depressant medications, such as Prozac and lithium. Supplements such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC), EPA in fish oil, statins, NSAIDs and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have also been shown to bring relief to some people. Non-medicine behavioral strategies should also be included in the treatment. One hour of exercise five days a week has been shown to be a tremendous anti-depressant. Also, a light box with florescent bulbs giving off 10,000 lux is beneficial. There are other augmentation strategies that can be used. Trying one treatment after another can be frustrating and take a great deal of patience on the part of the patient. He must trust his psychiatrist and be willing to wait a length of time to determine if a treatment is working or not. It may require trying many different treatments until the right combination is found. Treating depres.sion can be complicated but reaching 100% mood normal is well worth the effort.

Bipolar Medication:  Lithium
I hope you enjoyed the video! Here is a link to test your knowledge: http://empowern.com/2015/08/bipolar-medication-lithium/ Lithium belongs to the drug class: antimanic agents and it is sold under the US brand names: Lithobid, Eskalith, Eskalith-CR. More than 5.7 million American adults or 2.6 percent of the population age 18 or older in any given year have bipolar disorder. Lithium is helping some of this American. It has become one of the first and widely used psychiatric drugs for the treatment of bipolar disorder in the United States, since its approval in the 1970s. It also has become one of the most studied psychiatric medications. Indication: Lithium is an effective drug for bipolar disorder as its properties help to prevent, as well as stabilize, manic-depressive mood swings that occur in this psychiatric condition. By controlling mood disorder, it also reduces the risk of suicide. This is an advantage of lithium that is lacking in some other drugs. But it is more effective in preventing depression than it is in preventing mania. However, it needs time to develop and reach its ideal therapeutic level in the body before it induces any effects. Usually it takes about 1-3 weeks, however, in the case of sudden or acute bipolar episodes, if lithium hasn’t reached its optimum level in the client’s body, it can be prescribed along with other medications for effectiveness. Lithium can also be prescribed for other psychiatric disorders besides bipolar disorder. It can be useful when other drugs fail in conditions such as schizophrenia, major depression, and certain psychiatric problems in children. Mechanism of Action: Although lithium had been used for more than 50 years in the treatment of bipolar disorder, its mechanism of action was unknown; until 1998. Scientists didn’t know the cause of mood swings in bipolar disorder either. A study made in 1998, by a group of researchers from Wisconsin University shed light on how lithium works and why it is effective. It was concluded that lithium acts on certain nerve cells in the brain and the receptors of the neurotransmitter glutamate. Lithium has a dual effect on these receptors, and using this, it helps to regulate the level of glutamate between cells, preventing it from reaching too high or too low concentrations. According to the director of this research, Dr. Lowell Hokin, who is also a school professor of pharmacology at Wisconsin University; too little glutamate between neurons cause depression, while excessive amounts of glutamate cause mania. But it is also believed that there are more causes and factors involved in these disorders besides the level of glutamate, but nevertheless, the study has been very helpful as it has uncovered the fundamental causes of bipolar disorder.

Medications for Depression & Bipolar | Robert D. McMullen, MD
Robert D. McMullen, MD about Medications for Depression & Bipolar http://tmsbraincare.com/medications-bipolar-depression-hd-video/ Medications for treatment of Depression & Bipolar disorders Major depressive disorder is also known as major depression, clinical depression, or unipolar depression. The term unipolar refers to the presence of one pole, or one extreme of mood- depressed mood. This may be compared with bipolar depression which has the two poles of depressed mood and mania (i.e., euphoria, heightened emotion and activity). Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) causes serious shifts in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior—from the highs of mania on one extreme, to the lows of depression on the other These are of 2 types • Bipolar I disorder involves periods of severe mood episodes from mania to depression. The highs may even require hospitalization of the person. • Bipolar II disorder is a milder form of mood elevation, involving milder episodes of hypomania that alternate with periods of severe depression The depression that people with bipolar disorder experience is generally of a melancholic or psychotic type and therefore more biological in its nature. The depression found in these bipolar patients can be difficult to treat than unipolar depression as the antidepressants can cause them to have greater mood swings. These patients need to be on mood-stabilizing drugs. The antidepressants alone can actually increase the manic episodes and worsen the disorder. Antidepressants: divided into three main classes: • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) - were developed in the 1980's and are the most common prescribed today. They are sold under brand names such as Prozac, Paxil, Prozac, Luvox, Zoloft, Celexa • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) There are three types of MAOIs, phenelzine,(Nardil) isocarboxazid and tranylcypromine, ( Parnate) and moclobemide.) • Tricyclic drugs (TCAs). (sold as Amitriptyline, Imipramine) For effective control and to limit the side effects a combination can be used such as Wellbutrin (or bupropion). Mechanisms of action are different hence lower doses of both help control side effects. The combination of Zoloft and wellbutruim earned the popular name Welloft. The MAO inhibitors are more effective than the SSRI drugs. But can cause severe weight gain and therefore patients need to work on diet control, else the spike in blood pressure can be dangerous. They are contraindicated with drugs that work on serotonin. Lamictal (or Lamotrigine) was FDA approved for treating depression in 2003.The main advantage being, no sexual dysfunction, no sexual side effects and no weight gain. There is no sedative effect and dosage is generally much less than used for seizures. If any of the above mentioned combinations are ineffective in controlling depression, the thyroid hormone replacement drug Cytopan or Cytomel or Synthroid can be added to any of the above drug. Atypical anti-psychotics such as low doses of Zyprexa, or Abilify, or Seroquel, and the latest Quetiapine can also be prescribed. 150 mg of Lithium, normally prescribe for Bipolar at much higher doses, can be used safely without having to get regular blood checks.

I lost 25 lbs in 4 weeks and was in full panic or near panic for 8 weeks straight mixed with the darkest most painful depression I cold have ever imagined. I immediately could not work and had to move in with my parents who, along with many siblings and friends, had to watch me 24/7 as I was a danger to myself. Eventually I was hospitalized in the Psych Ward for a week. Getting through each day seemed truly unbearable and I knew I would surely die. I have been put on many many different SSRI's SNRI's Tricyclics, Mood stabilizers, anti psychotics, holistic meds, acupuncture and even a form of shock therapy called RTMS. I barely saw any improvement in my condition for a full year. It was decided I had treatment resistant depression and I spent nearly every moment in tears. Weeks after starting my newest round of medications (Seroquel & Nortryptaline) as a last ditch effort, I had my blood drawn for possible hormone imbalances and my Testosterone levels came back 200 ng/Dl and 150 ng/Dl. The average 25 year old male has 750 ng/Dl. With this discovery I for the first time had any type of possible explanation as to why I was not getting better and why I might be so so sick. The symptoms of such Low T are very similar to those of major depression. I started Testosterone replacement therapy soon after and have been checking in with the world and documenting my experience with treatment as well as giving my insight and perspective on various topics of mental health. I am blessed to say that I have slowly, over the last 5 years, been improving and becoming more stable which I never thought to be possible. My low T manifested itself in the form of Major depression, anxiety, and depersonalization/ derealization for over a year. Treating my low testosterone has been 1 HUGE part of the puzzle but I have had to continue to work hard to hold on to my mental stability with many set backs. Gaining some mental stability back is nothing short of a miracle as I was near death for what felt like forever. I do not consider myself to be totally healed yet but I am closer now then ever before and aim to use what I have been through to help or at least offer support to others in need I was able to successfully come off my Seroquel and Pamelor. I work out all the time as a part of my mental health recovery!!! Weight training and all kinds of cardio rule much of my free time and I also share this on my channel.

Ketamine Intervention and Treatment-Resistant Depression
Many patients with depression do not respond effectively to first line antidepressant treatments, and for those who do respond it usually takes at least 3 weeks from the time of starting treatment to see any clinical benefit. Mayo Clinic is eager to find and develop promising new ways to diagnose and treat treatment-resistant depression. Dr. Susannah Tye, a researcher within the Mayo Clinic Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, discusses research on optimizing depression treatment with ketamine intervention for patients with treatment-resistant depression.

Low Dose Lithium for the Treatment of Mood, Behavioral, and Cognitive Disorders by Dr  Greenblatt
Dr. Greenblatt Lithium has been widely prescribed and researched as a mood stabilizing drug, yet it continues to be one of the most slandered and misunderstood therapies in medicine. Cast under the darkness and mystery of psychopharmacology, what many have ignored is that lithium is not solely a synthetic chemical or pharmaceutical concoction; it is a mineral that is essential to human health. Present in trace amounts in the foods we eat and the water we drink, lithium is a critical nutrient for many aspects of human physiology. This presentation will explore the exciting and promising new research implication of how low-dose nutritional lithium may improve human health, prevent cognitive decline, dementia, and suicide, and aid in the treatment of ADHD.

Antidepressants in Bipolar Depression: An Update
In this webinar, Dr. Ghaemi will overview the use of antidepressant medication in the treatment of bipolar depression. Antidepressants have been repeatedly proven ineffective, and even harmful, in bipolar depression in the most valid scientific evidence, namely numerous randomized clinical trials, yet they remain widely used in clinical practice. They are in fact the most commonly used class of medication in bipolar illness, given to about 50% of patients, whereas the most proven effective treatment for bipolar illness, lithium, is only given to about 10% of subjects. Similarly, other proven effective mood stabilizers, like valproate and carbamazepine, are much less prescribed than antidepressants. Thus, clinicians routinely are prescribing ineffective and harmful medications for bipolar illness, and they routinely are withholding the most effective and helpful medications for bipolar illness. Learn more from Dr. Ghaemi: check out "The Psychiatry Letter" here:http://www.psychiatryletter.org/ The Psychiatry Letter provides analysis on diagnosis and therapeutics based on our best scientific evidence and our most convincing psychiatric concepts, even if they conflict with the conventional wisdom, including DSM labels or FDA indications. Unlike many other clinical advice or newsletter sites, our articles are written by active clinicians who are also researchers, with extensive scientific credibility, with hundreds of scientific articles or books.
