MOOD DISORDERS

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Major Depressive Disorder, also called Clinical Depression, is a pervasive depression that persists for at least two weeks, but can last for months and even years. After two years, MDD is then re-classified as Persistent Depressive Disorder. Major Depressive Disorder affects how a person thinks, feels and acts.
 
These severe symptoms reach every facet of a person’s daily life, from how they sleep and eat to their interactions with other people. MDD is a serious medical disorder and requires treatment. There are many treatment options for MDD.

Traditional antidepressant medications are often ineffective and can have debilitating side effects, including: weight gain; insomnia; fatigue; sexual dysfunction; nausea; and indigestion. Consequently, patients often discontinue their drug therapy and are left with few alternatives.

Fortunately, there are groundbreaking treatment alternatives with far fewer side effects that are effective and safe. At PACE we focus on these TMS innovative treatments that help the brain heal itself, and an excellent alternative for patients looking for a natural treatment option.

If you think you or someone close to you may be suffering from Clinical Depression here are some common symptoms of to consider:
•    Loss of interest or pleasure in most activities

•    Aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems without a clear physical cause and/or that do not ease even with treatment

If you have several of these symptoms, it is important to know that you are not alone and that you can get help. All forms of depression need to be treated.
 

Postpartum Depression (PPD)
Having a baby can be one of the happiest and most important events in a woman’s life. While life with a new baby can be thrilling and rewarding, it also can be hard and stressful at times. No matter how many classes they attend and books they read, most women are unprepared for the emotional, physical and mental demands that they will experience as a new mother.
 
An estimated 60-80 % will experience either Baby Blues or Postpartum Depression, PPD.

Postpartum Depression can have a negative impact on:
•    Conflicts with Partner
•    Child’s temperament
•    Child’s cognitive development
•    Mother-child bonding

Benefits of Treating Postpartum Depression
•    Happier mom means happier baby
•    Greater bonding with your newborn
•    Better physical health
•    Improved communication
•    Restored relationship intimacy

Postpartum Depression is an episode of Major Depressive Disorder after the birth of a baby. The symptoms are similar, please see the information on MDD. Traditional antidepressant medications have several side effects that can complicate treatment for new mothers. Nursing mothers are often dissuaded from continuing to breastfeed if they are suffering from Postpartum Depression in order to treat their depression with drugs. However, there are many treatment options including TMS that are non-systemic and therefore don’t impact the child.
