Experience A Postpartum Depression Breakthrough With ZULRESSO™

Medical Reviewer: Nima A. Fahimian, MD

Published:

The first few weeks of caring for a newborn come with sleepless nights, frustration, joy, and many other emotions. Newborns are exhausting! It’s normal for new moms to feel anxious, tired, and overwhelmed because having a baby is a significant life change. But sometimes, these feelings can signify more than just a case of the Baby Blues, and it’s not something even the best moms can ‘shake off.’

Pervasive depressed mood, lingering anxiety, and feelings of inadequacy can build up over time. Top that with frequent sleep disruptions, increased irritability, and pure exhaustion, and it’s easy to see why 1 in 7 women suffer from postpartum depression.

Understand Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is more than a case of the Baby Blues. It’s normal to feel a bit more worried or have mixed feelings when you are a new mom. The symptoms of postpartum depression are far more serve and last longer. Some common symptoms of postpartum depression include:

• Low or depressed mood
• Severe anxiety or panic attacks
• Trouble bonding with your baby
• Fear that you are a bad mother
• Feelings of hopelessness, shame, or guilt
• Thoughts of harming yourself, your baby, or others

Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are a type of antidepressant medication that are commonly prescribed to women with PPD. The downside is that these medications can take weeks or months to kick in, which feels like an eternity for new moms who are already struggling. The key to treating PPD requires fast-acting medicine. ZULRESSO™ is a novel, single-use medication administered intravenously that may be the solution and it’s now available at Bespoke Treatment.

The First-Ever Drug Specifically Approved For PPD

The FDA has approved ZULRESSO™ as the first therapy indicated for the treatment of postpartum depression (PPD) in adult women. Unlike traditional antidepressant medications that take several weeks to take effect, ZULRESSO™ has the ability to provide rapid relief of depression symptoms. Clinical trials have shown a greater improvement in PPD symptoms after treatment, measured using a standard depression scale. Patients see symptom relief beginning as soon as treatment is complete, and generally see results that last at least 30 days.

It is important to take care of yourself. All moms deserve to experience the joy of motherhood and PPD doesn’t have to hold you back. Ongoing symptoms of PPD can have serious consequences and should not be ignored. The good news is that PPD is treatable with your doctor’s help.

Reviews

As someone who has struggled with depression for years, I was skeptical about trying alternative treatment options. However, the team at Bespoke Treatment made me feel comfortable and supported throughout the entire process. Not only did their TMS therapy provide significant relief for my depression symptoms, but I also had a positive experience with their ketamine therapy. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions and address any concerns I had.

I can't recommend this place enough. I had an incredible experience with the treatment I received here. From the administrative staff to the medical team, I really appreciated the outstanding care and attention I received and always felt listened to. There was never any sense of rushing or a "one size fits all" approach, which is sadly very much the norm elsewhere. I highly recommend coming here for the excellent quality of services, professionalism, and warmth that are so important when you're needing mental health treatment.

TMS was amazing for me . I loved my treatments , the doctors, the staff as well as the office itself. Its an amazing place to go for your wellbeing . Everyone is super nice, kind and extremely professional. The place is very easy to get to with available parking. Basically no stress. I felt very comfortable with my technician and all his knowledge about TMS . I also loved Dr. Fahimian . He is extremely educated and knowable in his field. His patience in taking his time to answer all my questions and concerns were highly appreciated.

I was severely depressed when starting treatment. I could not handle meds and had big hopes that TMS would work. It absolutely did wonders for lifting my depression. I have my life back. I have motivation to do things and energy to achieve goals. I really wasn’t sure if the TMS method would work, but it did and I am forever grateful. It even helped with my ruminating thoughts. I’m able to be in the moment and get back into doing things I enjoy. I highly recommend TMS to anyone who needs it.
