According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 14–17% of the adult population will experience a condition called Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), also known as “clinical depression,” during their lifetime. MDD is usually treated with talk therapy and/or medication; however, a key clinical study shows that over 40% of these patients might not respond to medication as they suffer from a condition called Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). These patients need to seek an alternative treatment for their symptoms.
Both Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine nasal spray are alternative treatments for MDD that have been shown to be safe and effective for those with TRD.
Mindful Health Solutions provides psychiatric services, including prescribing and monitoring medication for patients with MDD. We are dedicated to treating patients with TRD and helping our patients find relief. We are California’s premier provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for patients with TRD. We also have found great success treating patients with FDA-approved esketamine, a prescription nasal spray that can only be administered in a certified treatment clinic with medical staff trained to prescribe and dispense esketamine and is Risk Evaluation and Mitigation (REMS) certified. Sometimes patients with TRD will benefit from a combination of medication and TMS or esketmine, and Our Clinicians will work with patients to find the right combination to relieve their depression.
