It’s Time to Sit up And Take Notice of ADHD/ADD

Edward Fruitman No Comments
add-treatment-nyc

Times change fast, whether we’re talking about technology, fashion, viewpoints, or general culture, but the same can be said for health-related issues too.

Once upon a time, if a person was constantly late, couldn’t focus, was randomly irritated, and often found it extremely hard to finish anything, they were considered to be lazy, or even simply irrational. Of course, you can’t always put a label on someone’s behavior without really checking deeper into the issue. You could take this one step further and talk about so called ‘naughty children’ – it was often the case that if a child was disruptive, had difficulty focusing and didn’t find it easy to learn new things, that they were just lazy and naughty overall. It wasn’t until a few years ago that ADHD/ADD was found to be a very real thing, and therefore an answer to the above issues.

You don’t have to be a child to suffer from ADHD, and ADD is a very real thing too. Diagnoses of ADD/ADHD are on the rise, and more and more adults are finding that they fit the symptom bill too. The worrying thing however, is that countless adults are out there trying to deal with their symptoms, thinking they are somehow just difficult, when really there is a problem that they could have help with, but they don’t know about it.

ADD/ADHD is not something to throw into a non-descript bin, it is not something which isn’t real, and it isn’t something which is just a random tag-line for a condition which isn’t a case of reality. The sheer amount of research which has gone into understanding this sometimes debilitating condition has shown that whether child or adult, ADD/ADHD is something which should be taken notice of.

Here at Trifecta Health, under the watchful eye of NYC Psychiatrist Dr Edward Fruitman, we have a range of ADD/ADHD treatment options available for sufferers of the condition, whether diagnosed at the time of meeting or not. We can help you understand your condition, manage it, and we can offer treatment to help make light that much easier for you and your family/loved ones. We also understand that ADHD/ADD doesn’t just affect the sufferer, it affects everyone around them too, and we have a range of advice and counseling options to get you through the first initial understanding stage, and to arm you with the knowledge, hints, and tips to live your lives with the methods to jump over any potential stumbling blocks that may lie ahead or crop up from time to time.

The bottom line here is that more understanding has to be put into this condition, to really help people understand that it isn’t just a case of being ‘scatty’, or lazy, perhaps unorganized, or simply not being bothered about being on time. ADD/ADHD makes a person think and act in a different way, and it can be extremely upsetting for the person concerned. The good news? Help is certainly very much at hand.

Anxiety is Nothing to Laugh About

Edward Fruitman No Comments
anxiety-depression

If you’ve ever had a bout of anxiety before, you don’t need anyone to tell you how upsetting and even debilitating it can be. Obviously, depression obviously comes alongside anxiety too, but it is possible to suffer from just the latter alone.

You don’t have to be having major anxiety attacks to feel like you are dealing with an anxiety disorder, and it’s quite a common issue for the general population of the world to feel anxiety to a large degree from time to time.

Having said that, what happens when anxiety becomes an almost permanent part of your life? What do you do when those dark thoughts of ‘what if’ become so crippling that you start worrying uncontrollably about things that haven’t even happened yet, and probably will never happen at all?

Generalized Anxiety Disorder in New York is a very real issue, and here at Trifecta Heath we recognize this completely. We have a range of treatment options available for anyone who gets in touch with one of our Manhattan offices, and under the expert and watchful eye of NYC Psychiatrist Dr Edward Fruitman, we aim to get you back on the right path, away from uncontrollable thinking, ‘what ifs’, overthinking, panic, and general anxiety overall.

There is a big difference between anxiety and simple worrying. We all worry from time to time, this is normal, and it is actually a coping mechanism from natured, designed to help us recognize a potential threat and deal with it accordingly. Of course, nature doesn’t always accurately recognize a real threat, from a perceived one, and when you start to worry uncontrollably about a perceived threat, you’re stepping into overthinking territory.

Anyone who suffers from an anxiety disorder tends to be a chronic over-thinker, and stopping this process is extremely difficult to say the least. A lot of cognitive behavioral therapy is needed in these cases, to help the sufferer recognize that the worst case scenario is very unlikely to happen, and even if it does, there are ways to cope with it, and obviously, nothing is ever as bad as what we think it’s going to be.

You can’t tell this to an anxiety sufferer however, not until they are ready to address the problem and put in real time and effort to conquer the problem.

Is someone who suffers from anxiety always going to suffer from it? Probably to a small degree, yes. When anxiety spikes however, it can control life and it can be extremely unpleasant. The idea is to prevent these spikes from happening, by teaching the sufferer mindset tricks, changing the way they deal with issues that are potential triggers, and putting into place coping mechanisms for the future. There are prescription-based treatment options which can work alongside this too, and these work together to create a much more balanced sense of harmony, and kick out those troublesome thoughts for good.

If you are suffering from anxiety in New York, or if you are prone to it and you want to talk about way out of the whole situation, then don’t hesitate to give us a call today at (800) 385-3905.

How Does Summer Make You Feel?

Edward Fruitman No Comments

depression-treatment-nyc

Break free from depression with Trifecta Med Spa!

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and there is a distinct smell of barbecue in the air.

Summer is supposed to be a time of happiness, wellness, joy, and sun tans, but for many this simply doesn’t occur.

There is a lot of healing effect which comes from the sun, but if you’re suffering from low mood, anxiety, or depression, the sun doesn’t seem to do very much at all.

Here at Trifecta Health, we understand just how debilitating these conditions can be, and while everyone around you is probably telling you that you should smile, you should be happy, the sun it out and its summer time, we know that you simply can’t push yourself out of the darkness and into the sunlight quite so easily.

Now for the good news.

With the help of our understanding, highly trained, and highly professional staff, all under the watchful eye of Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. we can offer a range of different treatment options, all with the aim of helping you see that sunshine for the joyful occasion it really is.

You might be rolling your eyes at this point, because you’ve probably tried several treatment options in the past, and failed to get the response you wanted. Don’t roll your eyes too hard however, because we specialize in helping those who simply can’t find relief from regular treatment methods, and we offer several more specialized alternatives, which all have very high success rates.

From TMS therapy to Ketamine to regular antidepressants with cognitive behavioral therapy combined, there are several options available to you, and we screen every single client to find the best possible treatment for them, with the best outcome available.

The bottom line is that one size never fits all, so an in-depth consultation to find the right course of action is a definite must do. Once we identify which treatment option is the one to give you the best chance at kicking depression and anxiety on the head, we design a schedule, consulting with you every single step of the way.

Summer time is often a trigger for people to try and force themselves to get help – and if the sun is peeping through those clouds and making you wonder why you’re not feeling in a similar mood, perhaps now is the time to speak out and ask for help. A little like the holiday season, there is something about summer which means we are ‘supposed’ to feel a certain way, and when you simply don’t feel that way, you believe you’ve failed.

This simply isn’t the case, and with a little help and support you really could be feeling the sunshine on your skin and revealing in the high just like everyone else around you seems to be doing too.

Don’t hesitate to give us a call today at (800) 385-3905 and speak to one of our friendly and highly trained staff. There is much help at hand, and you simply need to ask.

While Hollywood films and TV shows might paint life to be a fairy tale, with every single problem having a happy outcome, reality really isn’t that simple. Sometimes we have problems which are difficult to deal with, and we really can’t see a way out. Of course, there are some facets of these films and TV shows are true, because if find the strength to reach out and ask for help, you can find an avenue and road towards a brighter future.

Here at Trifecta Health New York we know just how difficult life can be when you are dealing with a variety of different problems, and under the watchful and professional eye of Dr Edward Fruitman MD, we offer a range of services and support to individuals.

Of course the initial reaching out for help part of the deal is probably the hardest, but it’s important to realize that asking for help is not a failing, it’s actually an incredibly strong and brave thing to do. The first step is always the hardest, but the good news is that from there the road towards recovery and maintenance is much easier and much brighter.

For instance, if you are suffering from ADD/ADHD, you might not even know how to deal with your condition, in fact, you might not even have been diagnosed. We are committed to helping our New York clients not only deal with the condition in a treatment way, but also learn the mechanisms and methods to live with the condition successfully, both for the individual and the friends and family involved too.

On the flip-side, if you are one of the countless individuals suffering with depression and anxiety, you might feel that you simply have to face it alone, but that’s really not the case! We recognize that this is a condition where one size certainly doesn’t fit all, and we offer a range of treatment and cognitive therapy options to help you conquer the condition once and for all.

Maybe you have been struggling with substance and alcohol addiction for some time, and you feel you want help, but you simply can’t bring yourself to ask for it. The first step in this case will certainly be the hardest, but find the strength to reach out and you will be rewarded with help, support, and the very real possibility of a brighter future as a result. Equally, if you have suffered with your weight for a long time, having tried a range of different avenues that haven’t worked, and you’ve found your self confidence and body image disappearing down the drain as a result, we offer support and treatment for such problems, meaning you can finally learn to love the image you see in the mirror, as well as finding renewed, positive confidence within yourself too.

This Christmas time, why not look deep within yourself and face your problems. Yes, it’s a hard road, but it is probably going to be the best decision you ever make, as well as the best journey also. Give a call to Trifecta Health Clinic to find top NYC Psychiatrist.

Boost your overall happiness at Trifecta!

Here at Trifecta Health we are dedicated to helping the residents of New York City beat a variety of different health-related issues, putting a smile back on their face and boosting overall happiness.

Let Trifecta Health Help Kick-Start Your New Year in The Best Possible Way!

New Year can be one of two things – it can either be a happy time of joy and positivity, or it can be a depressing time, when the year’s upsets and disappointments come back to haunt us. For those suffering with issues such as depression and anxiety, for instance, this can all add up to a very less than celebratory mood.

It is very important to stay positive, no matter what is happening in your life , like a character of great book about struggles and victories “From Rags to Riches” by Irene Inker. Of course, life is certainly too short to be anything but happy, however if you tell that to someone who simply can’t find it in themselves to raise a smile, you’re not going to get the reaction you were hoping for.

Do You Need Help?

There are many different issues in life which can affect our self-esteem, happiness, and our overall mood, and whilst for most people this is simply a passing phase, a feeling, for others it can be something much more serious than that. If a feeling plagues your life and drags you down, should you cope with it, or should you try and beat it?

Of course, you should try and beat it, and that first step, that first admission, is the key to your successful journey.

Here at Trifecta Health we offer a range of services to our clients, all under the expert eye of top NYC Psychiatrist Dr Edward Fruitman MD. Many of our treatment options and services are holistic and many of them are revolutionary, giving you an option when other areas don’t seem to have worked in the past. For example, if you have battled with depression and you have found that regular medication and cognitive therapy methods haven’t worked for you, we offer a few other routes to try, such as TMS therapy, Ketamine treatment, and Botox for depression.

Of course, it may not be depression that is your issue, it could be something completely different, such as substance and alcohol addiction issues, or it could be weight management problems. If you are suffering from ADD/ADHD, or you are the partner or family member of someone who is, we offer a variety of different treatment options and advice routes for you too.

Make This Year The Year You Make a Change

All too often we are told to ‘keep calm and carry on’, but why should you go through life battling a problem that you simply don’t have to battle with? The biggest step, and the bravest step, you will make is reaching out and asking for help. While it might not be smooth sailing completely from that point on, it is the hardest part of the deal – if you are brave enough to do that, can you imagine what else you can conquer?

Make the upcoming New Year the time you make that change in your life, and look forward to a happier and brighter future. Call Trifecta today at (800) 385-3905

Ketamine – Fast, Effective Relief for Depression Sufferers

Edward Fruitman No Comments
ketamine-treatment-depression

Depression is an unpredictable and highly unpleasant beast, and one which often doesn’t follow a set pattern in terms of treatment and response. What works for one person, often doesn’t work for another, and that leaves sufferers in a quandary on where to go next.

Depression is considered to be down to a change in activity levels of neurotransmitters, usually Serotonin, Norepinephrine, and Dopamine. These are the three main neurotransmitters which are responsible for mood and how a person really feels; when there is a reduction or change in production, this can lead a person to feel low, down, and then depression sets in, taking things further downwards. Here at Trifecta Health NYC we are committed to helping our clients in their endeavors to win their battle with depression, paving the way to a brighter future.

The main treatment option for depression is down to anti-depressant medication, but this can often come with unpleasant side effects, or basically doesn’t work for certain people. One next step is the use of Ketamine to help with depression symptoms.

Under the watchful eye of highly skilled Dr Edward Fruitman, MD, here at Trifecta Health we understand that any treatment of this kind can be upsetting, but all our New York clients go through an in-depth consultation appointment, to identify the best treatment option for them. If Ketamine is thought to be a way forward, a series of tests will be undertaken, to check for any contraindications, before a testing injection is given, to give the patient peace of mind when it comes to any adverse reactions. If all is well, a regular injection is then given. The actual feeling of Ketamine in the system lasts for around two hours, and can leave the patient feeling a little drunk or intoxicated, but not unpleasantly so. When the patient is feeling aware and steady, they are discharged home.

How quickly does Ketamine work?

Following the initial ‘drunken’ feeling, the effects will wear off, but the improvement in depression symptoms should be evident in around 24 hours of the injection. In order to maintain this benefit, a treatment needs to be completed twice per week for the first two weeks, and then weekly. The main aim is to create a better mood and feeling for the patient, and then transfer onto a more mainstream anti-depressant medication for maintenance of symptoms thereafter.

Is Ketamine for depression safe?

Here at Trifecta Health NYC we are highly trained in treating all kinds of depression with a various field of treatment types. We test all our patients very carefully to check for any contraindications to Ketamine treatment, before deciding on the best way forward. The actual dose of Ketamine giving during a treatment is around ¼ of that given during a traditional anaesthetic, so it is actually quite small, considering the huge benefit it gives a person from their depression symptoms.

If you are struggling with depression and you feel like you’ve exhausted all your options, give us a call today at (800) 385-3905 and chat to our friendly staff about your further options. We can certainly help you towards a brighter, happier future.

Consider TMS to fight depression

Edward Fruitman No Comments
tms-fight-depression

Here at Trifeca Health Center NYC we are proud to offer TMS therapy to patients who are struggling with the effects of depression, all under the watchful eye of Dr Edward Fruitman MD

Depression is not a fun deal, that’s a certainty. Anyone who has ever suffered with low mood will tell you how bad it feels, but when you step it up and suffer from full blown depression, there really doesn’t feel like any hope or light in the world at all. Winter time can be a troubling time for many, with the festive season not too far away, and the guilt of not really feeling that festive coming from nowhere. The important thing to remember here however, is that you are certainly not alone.

 

The first port of call when you visit the doctor suffering from this upsetting condition is usually anti-depressant medication, but that doesn’t work for everyone, and can sometimes bring about unpleasant side effects, which may be impossible to deal with. If that’s the case, where do you turn?

 

TMS therapy, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, as it is better known, is an FDA approved treatment for major depression, and for those who haven’t found any help from anti-depressants, or who can’t deal with the side effects.

 

Beating that winter feeling

 

Of course, simply feeling down because of the time of year is normal, but when the feelings turn into something much darker, it’s time to take action. TMS could be the answer, a downtime-free process which works to send complex magnetic pulses to the part of the brain which is responsible for altering and affecting mood.

 

Each session takes around half an hour, and basically involves you sitting in a chair, whilst you let our highly skilled staff work their magic. A magnetic coil will be placed at one side of your head, and will penetrate the brain with magnetic pulses, targeting the prefrontal cortex, which kicks into action your own neurotransmitters, altering cells and creating a balance. What happens then? You get up and go about your daily business, that’s what!

 

The number of treatments required to achieve a lasting result depends on the person, and this is something that will be discussed with you at your initial consultation. We are dedicated to helping the residents of Manhattan NYC beat their winter depression concerns, looking forward to a festive season that is packed with happy memories, rather than worries that darken such a bright and sparkly time of year.

 

What’s next?

 

If this sounds like something you would like to discuss, don’t hesitate to call our helpful and professional staff today and schedule an appointment. We know that every single person who walks through our doors is an individual, and as such as target treatment in a totally individual way too, creating a bespoke plan to suit your needs and the severity of your condition.

Call us today at (800) 385-3905 and look forward to a brighter and happier future.

HCG Diet – Say Goodbye to Those Stubborn Extra Pounds

Edward Fruitman No Comments
best-weight-loss-program-nyc

HCG Diet in New York at Trifecta Health Medical Center

Diets are restrictive, and they are hard-work, but if you put in the effort and a single-minded approach, the results are certainly more than worth it.

Does this sound like a statement you’ve used as a mantra over recent years?

Weight loss is hard, and when you feel that you are overweight and you’re struggling to lose those extra pounds, your self-esteem can be badly damaged as a result. Your mood and everything in your life can instantly become negative, and you avoid looking in the mirror because you basically don’t like what you see.

While this is a sadness, it is a truth, but there is always a silver lining to every cloud!

Here at Trifecta Health, we are proud to offer a variety of different weight loss and weight management programs, all under the watchful eye of Dr Edward Fruitman MD, right in the heart of Downtown Manhattan NYC. No matter what your circumstances, we can help put together a program which will lead you to weight loss success, and one such diet which is very popular, and very effective, is the HCG diet.

What is The HCG Diet?

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, and this is a hormone which naturally occurs in the bodies of pregnant woman. By undergoing this diet you are basically tricking your body into thinking you are pregnant, and that means you are going to be burning fat stores, rather than eating fat and adding to your bulk.

The diet involves injections of the HCG hormones, as well as a calorie restrictive diet; you will be consuming 500 calories per day, which although low and certainly tough to follow, has been shown to be highly effective in losing around 15-20 pounds per month. The other perk is that those stubborn areas of fat, the ones which don’t seem to want to leave us, are targeted especially, and successfully eradicated.

Is Everyone Suitable for the HCG Diet?

No. The HCG diet is very restrictive, and therefore you will need an in-depth consultation prior to beginning. If the diet isn’t suitable for you, perhaps for a medical reason, then there are many other options we can explore, putting together a bespoke weight loss program for you to follow.

You will have a series of tests before beginning the HCG diet, as well as a chat about what it involves, checking that you are very clear on how to follow it, as well as the injection schedule for the HCG hormone. Put simply, our highly trained and friendly staff will help you understand the diet, as well as being there for you every step of the way, in case of problems, difficulties, or questions.

If you are struggling with weight loss in New York, either you can’t seem to manage it alone, or you just don’t know where to start, then it’s time to pick up the phone and call us today. We are dedicated to helping the people of New York reach their weight loss targets, becoming happier and healthier as a result.

Adult ADHD in New York

Edward Fruitman No Comments

adult-adhd-nycADHD seems to be surprisingly under diagnosed in adults in New York City and thus under treated.  So many adults struggle with ADHD in silence thinking it is just them or they are doing something wrong- when in actuality there is a real issue at play that has several treatment options that can dramatically improve the quality of life experienced.

Trifecta Health in New York City is a leader in the accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of ADHD in adults. So how do you know if you genuinely have ADHD?  Of course a professional evaluation is the only way to be certain but there are a few common things that adults with ADHD do:

  • Do you find yourself putting off mundane tasks like unloading the dishwasher or folding laundry until you have no clean underwear or no clean silverware?
  • Do you go online to do one thing for work or school and before you know it are sucked into endless YouTube videos?
  • Do you let your car get down to “E” and pray you can make it to the gas station?
  • Do you look forward to spending time with friends enjoying leisure activities then feel guilty because you did not accomplish your “need to do” list for the day or week?

These are common behavior traits of adults with ADHD- of course if you put off matching socks it does not mean that you have ADHD it may just mean you don’t like matching socks.  The key is when the behaviors negatively impact your personal or professional life- once behaviors do that- it is time to address them with a professional.

Trifecta Health in Manhattan NYC has many treatment options and the clinicians are experts at tailoring the treatment to the individual.  As everyone is different, everyone needs an individualized treatment plan to achieve the best results possible.

Treatment can include support groups, talk therapy, medication, and other behavior modification tools to support you as you adapt to living with ADHD.  Trifecta Health’s practitioners will work with you as an individual to find the best options for you.

Once a patient has experienced effective treatment they often cannot imagine how they managed before treatment; it truly can be life changing.

Often, people report feeling better about themselves, improved performance at work, less stress at home and reduced feelings of depression.  So often people with ADHD blame themselves and think it is their fault- that they are just lazy failing to realize that there is a genuine issue to be addressed.

Call Trifecta Health at (212) 233-2830 to arrange and appointment with one of our highly trained and experienced clinicians if you are at all concerned about adult ADHD.

Adult ADHD and Relationship

How Adult ADHD affect your relationship and how to manage it

Relationships, in which one of the partners has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD, can bring the worst of times together.  So, if you feel pain and anger in your relationship, is time to wonder more deeply about the cause of that behavior or negative thoughts.

Adult-adhd-nyc

The primarily step in this manner, will be to identify symptoms and the cause of the problems. Most of time the partner without the symptoms suffer the most in that relationship.

If your partner has ADD/ ADHD, you may feel ignored and lonely. While they try to manage their social life and all the frustrations from it, you will feel pain and disagreement between two of you. If the case of cause is that both partners have ADD/ADHD, then your area of communication will be lacking of misunderstanding, a lot of disagreements and frustration.

If the descriptions sound familiar than your relationship are suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. They key it is to work on your symptoms of ADD/ADHD, and also ask for help in Trifecta Health Medical Center from top ADHD doctors in NYC. Our specialist can help you in eliminating the ADHD symptoms away, of course if you will maintain frequency of your appointments with your specialist.

One of the issue in the relationship with ADHD person is that in the beginning of the stage of the dating  your date can be overactive, and you can explain it through being all or nothing in that relationship.

Another difficulty can be “walking on the egg shell” the partner will get the feeling of frustration of not meeting the expectations of partner who are suffering from ADD/ ADHD. No matter how hard you try, you can’t maintain connection of intimacy for long time.

Fortunately, that can be held if you not postponing or brush it under the carpet.  The first step is to face with that reality and understand that the treatment will benefit not just you but all the lovely people in your life.

Botox helps fight Depression

Edward Fruitman No Comments

Botox treatment is a way to boost your self-esteem and give a kick up the backside to feelings of depression

botox and depression

Trifecta Health and NYC psychiatrist Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. is positive that Botox  treatment in NYC helps with depression symptoms.

Feeling down, low, or helpless may all be varying degrees of depression. Depression can be a dark place, and feelings of worthlessness and low self-esteem go cause you to feel extremely helpless.

Self-esteem can be difficult to keep under control; many things can get in the way of our confidence and prove to be detrimental to our over-all state of well-being. Thankfully, there are a few simple things we can do to help; and although they may not be the solution for everyone, they can be extremely beneficial in making us feel more confident about ourselves, as well as more positive about life in general.

One of the aspects we can improve is your appearance. Unfortunately, with time comes the dreaded signs of aging. While this is inevitable, we do have the wonder product, Botox, to help us. With the short amount of time it takes, the procedure will leave you with almost instant results, as well as the confidence to help you walk a little taller, open your eyes a little wider, and smile a little deeper.

When feeling low, our automatic response is to frown; yet when feeling happy or confident, we smile. However, frowning causes lines and wrinkles that Botox can help eradicate. In turn, you will feel more confident and smile, banishing all of those feelings of helplessness and self-doubt.

Trifecta Health Medical Center and Trifecta Med Spa welcomes anyone who is interested in improving their appearance, self-image and life style. At Trifecta Med Spa Botox injections NYC administered by Allergan® trained & certified NYC Botox doctors. We offer Botox and Xeomin injection treatments in NYC and Long Island. Botox treatment  at Trifecta Med Spa can erase crow’s feet, frown & forehead lines in days and soften your appearance, so you look younger and better refreshed without surgery and downtime.

We, at Trifecta believe that Cosmetic Botox Injections are a safe and effective method in improving appearance and looking years younger. We are ready to support our patients in any endeavor that is designed to improve their beauty, mental health, wellness and wellbeing.

ADHD Treatment Options at Trifecta Health in NYC

Edward Fruitman No Comments

Trifecta Health Medical Center and psychiatrist Edward Fruitman, M.D. offer adult ADD/ADHD treatment in New York City

Medication Treatment Option for adult ADD/ADHD

Part of ADHD treatment at Trifecta Health Medical Center involves medications prescribed to help improve the availability of brain chemicals, dopamine, and norepinephrine. These chemicals act as messengers to help control, attention, movement, and concentration. While the medications prescribed are stimulants, they actually help “calm down” a person with ADHD by allowing them to focus. These medications can safely alleviate symptoms when prescribed and taken as directed. Often the effect on productivity is profound. As these medications can be misused, Trifecta Health Medical has checks in place to ensure that these medications are being used appropriately. If misuse is a problem, Strattera is the medication of choice. Other, off label medications are Desipramine, Effexor, and Buproprion.

ADD/ADHD Counseling

Another part of ADHD treatment in NYC at Trifecta Health is developing strategies to cope with areas of difficulty. This is often done with a counselor to help identify problem areas and to come up with creative solutions to manage them. It in essence is playing to an individual’s strengths, this often involves learning how to shift responsibilities and roles, and delegating other tasks.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for treatment os ADD/ADHD

Trifecta Health Medical Center  and NYC psychiatrist Dr.Edward Fruitman also offer its clients TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is FDA approved for treatment of Depression for patients who did not respond to anti-depressant medications.  The treatment is directed toward the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex, the part of the brain directly involved in ADHD symptoms.  While FDA approved for the treatment of ADHD, there is clinical evidence that indicates TMS for ADHD is very useful, especially if the individual experiences depression or anxiety as well as ADHD- which is common as the symptoms of ADHD can be quite frustrating and distressing.

Trifecta Health Medical Center in the Financial District of New York City is dedicated to helping clients overcome their struggles with adult ADHD by providing safe and effective care managed by an expert in the field: Edward Fruitman, MD. Trifecta Health Medical center offers a convenient location and flexible hours to fit nearly any schedule.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Edward Fruitman No Comments

Edward Fruitman, M.D. explains What is depression.

Bipolar affective disorder which is also known as manic depressive illness, is a mental disorder. This is characterized by times of depression and times of an elevated mood. The elevated mood is known as a mania or a hypermania depending on the severity. There also depends on whether there is psychosis.

During mania a person can act abnormally happy, energetic or they can act irritable. While in a mania a person decisions may not be well thought out with a disregard to the consequences. While there are periods of depression what this may include is crying, poor eye contact with others and a negative outlook on life. There is typically a lack of sleep. The risk of suicide among those with the disorder is around 6% which is higher than the national average and self harm occurs in 30–40% of people with the disorder. Mental health issues other than bipolar can be common to go along with bipolar disorder and these can include anxiety disorder and substance use disorder are commonly associated.

The cause of bipolar disorder is not understood that clearly. The factors that play a role are environmental and genetic. Child abuse and long term stress can be two of the environmental factors that can cause bipolar disorder.

The disorder is divided into two parts. These are bipolar I disorder which is if there is at least one manic episode and bipolar II disorder is when there are at least one hypomanic episode and one major depressive episode. Other conditions that may come across in a similar manner can include substance use disorder, personality disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, schizophrenia, as well as a number of medical conditions.

What is ADHD?

Edward Fruitman No Comments

 

adult-adhd-newyork

ADHD can be characterized by multiple symptoms. Some of these symptoms can include including trouble paying attention, being easily distracted, jumping from one activity to another, procrastinating, disorganization, forgetfulness, fidgeting, talking excessively, impatience, interrupting and difficulty completing tasks. The subtypes to ADHD are inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive and combined.

What happened until recently, was that the inattentive form of ADHD, was labeled as ADD. However, now, the term ADD is no longer used and it has been combined under the banner of ADHD.

What something you need to know about the inattentive type of ADHD is that it’s often overlooked. “While these kids have organizational and attention issues, they lack hyperactivity and impulsivity, which makes their ADHD go under the radar or undetected.” This is according to a multitude of doctors in the field of ADHD. People that have the symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity have a tendency to have an earlier early diagnosis. This is because their symptoms are more pronounce and not as subtle.

Regardless of the type of ADHD a person has the treatment is the same. One way is with medication. These are typically of a simulant nature and these have a positive effect on most people. But cognitive therapy can work well as well teaching the children to organize themselves and slow down. However, teachers and parents need to learn how to manage the disorder as well.

At Trifecta Health NYC we can help you and your family with the treatment of ADHD, so contact us today.

Trifecta Health and NYC Psychiatrist Dr. Fruitman provide a simple steps to overcome your ADHD symptoms.

When you’re living with the symptoms of ADD or ADHD, getting the job at hand done can sometimes be a struggle. Distractions, finding it hard to concentrate and letting the mind wander are all things that can act as a barrier to every day jobs. Here at Trifecta Health Medical Center in New York, we understand how difficult it can be to live with these symptoms, and have come up with several easy to follow ways to make sure that presentation gets written, or to make sure that public speaking episode isn’t quite so nerve-wracking.

Read on!

  • Waiting for the right time to get your job done? Stop right there! Conditions are rarely right; either the rain is lashing at the window, or it’s too hot. Be proactive and sit down, breathe and get on!
  • Strike whilst the iron is hot! Thinking about something rarely gets it done, doing it however, that works.
  • Be confident in your ideas. Put it into action!
  • Be confident, fake it even, because you can be sure that even the most confident of people are nervous deep down.
  • Force the flow of inspiration. Yes, sometimes ideas strike out of nowhere, but when the creative flow is halted, you need to sit down, brainstorm and make that blockage disappear simply by doing.
  • Don’t worry about what has passed or what may come. Live in the present, focus on the now.

It seems simple doesn’t it? However, living with the symptoms of ADD/ ADHD in New York City is far from simple. Focus on these steps and you’ll find the barriers that these symptoms can cause, will lessen and lessen.

Traveling with ADHD

Edward Fruitman No Comments

Best-ADHD-treatment-manhattanIf you or your loved one suffers from ADHD then you will be more than knowledgeable about the difficulties of this condition. Like most things in life, it can be managed, and it’s really a case of knowing the little quirks and tips you can do to make life a little easier.

Travel isn’t the simplest of situations at the best of times, and stress often leaks in to travel days, regardless of whether you suffer from ADHD or not. The key to a calmer onward journey is in being organised, however we all know that being organised isn’t something that comes that naturally to someone suffering from ADHD. It’s because of this that a little pre-planning will go a long way.

Check out these tips.

Write lists
You need to remember so much before you head away on vacation that it can lead to a meltdown. Writing lists means you’re not going to forget something, and that you can easily tick items off your list as you go. Keep a notebook by your bed, take it with you when you’re out and about, and then when something pops into your head that you don’t want to forget, simply scribble it down for later reference. It’s also important to sit down with someone and write a list of the important set things you need to do, so these can be ticked off as you go.

Packing is a nightmare – end of!
Packing is no fun regardless of your situation. Trying to figure out what you need for a certain space of time is just ridiculous, but unfortunately it’s something we have to do. Be methodical, think about what you do in the morning when you get up, e.g. you brush your teeth, you spray deodorant, you wash your face, then think of the things you used to do those actions – pack them! Running through your day in your head like this means you won’t forget something important. Again, write it all down.

Medications
If you take medication for your ADHD, or any other condition you have, make sure you have enough to last you for the duration of your trip. Pack your medications in the labelled boxes, in your hand luggage bag.

Share your ‘safe place’
If you’re travelling with a partner, family, or friends, make sure you tell them where your dedicated safe place is. You know the kind of thing I’m talking about, we always keep our passport in a particular safe place, and most of us forget where that is at some point. Share the location with a trusted person, and you won’t go far wrong.

Stay calm in stressful situations
Travel can be stressful, especially air travel when you have to stand and queue in an airport for a length of time and can easily become fidgety or restless, but try and stay as calm as possible. Distract your mind from the waiting, take your iPad or a book, something to keep your attention as much as you can, and if you come up against a situation that is stressing you out, don’t flash react to it, listen to what is being said and done first.

Whilst it’s easy to travel in essence, the ins and outs of a travel day are enough to make the calmest person scream at times. Those suffering from ADHD can find this particularly difficult but it’s certainly not something that is impossible. If you would like to discuss more about ADHD and tips to manage the condition, give us a call today at Trifecta Health NYC at (212) 233-2830.

Gift ideas for ADHD

Gift ideas for ADHD-affected loved ones in your life

It’s the thought that counts, how many times have you heard that? Well, it’s true, and when it comes to seasonal gifts for your nearest and dearest, it’s important to hit the nail on the head and buy something that is not only fun, but functional too.

If you have anyone in your life who is affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), you’ll be all too aware of the challenges that brings for not only the person involved, but for family and friends too. If you’re stuck for ideas, check out the six suggestions below for inspiration.

1. Key finder!
adhd-help-nycYou might not have heard of these handy products, but for those unorganized times when keys seem to have fallen into a black hole, this is a godsend. Simply attach the tracker to your keys and use your smartphone to locate them. Losing keys and being a little unorganized is a common trait of ADHD, so this is a great, functional idea.

 

2. Handbag organizers/pockets
organizer-bagTrying to find something your seemingly bottomless bag is not only frustrating, but can be a challenge. We mentioned that being unorganized and losing things is one of the main problems with ADHD, but this is a gift that will not only help, but will also look pretty funky too! Coming in all different colors and patterns, simply pop this inside your handbag and organize your belongings in the pockets. Easy!

 

3. Rechargeable phone battery pack
adhd-gadget-nycThis is a great invention for anyone, regardless of ADHD status. Forget to charge up your phone? No problem with this small and portable battery pack, which you simply plug into your phone to give you extra charge. Most smartphones are compatible too.

 

4. Aqua notes
never-forget-ideasForgetfulness is another trait of ADHD, and when something pops into your mind, that you must remember, it can just as easily disappear out of your head, which causes frustration, and obviously the thing you remembered being easily forgotten. These notes stick to the shower wall and when that chore you need to remember pops into your head mid-shower, scribble it down!

 

5. Filofax
adhd-helping-toolBeing organized is a great plan of action when it comes to living with the effects of ADHD, and having it in a phone isn’t always so easy, especially if you run out of charge, or lose said phone! A Filofax makes it easy to organize your day, with to-do lists, and tick lists to follow. They’re also quite cute, in different colors and sizes!

 

6. Armchair organizer
armchair-organizerDo you find that famous black hole also extends to the remote control? The sofa cushions seem to have a habit of eating said remote, and again, we’re looking at being organized. This handy over-the-arm-of-the-chair organizer keeps your remote, phone, and anything else you want to not lose right when you can find it, in easy reach whilst you’re engrossed in a film.

You’ll notice that many of these gifts revolve around organizing life and avoiding forgetful moments. While there are many other effects of ADHD, if you can tackle these, with thoughtful and fun gifts, then you’re certainly well on the road to helping your loved one this festive season.

Don’t struggle with Adult ADHD

Edward Fruitman No Comments

Trifecta Health and Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. offers Adult ADHD treatment in downtown Manhattan

Doctor Edward Fruitman, M.D.Anyone suffering with ADHD, whatever the degree, will tell you the same thing – getting to grips with the symptoms and finding a happy medium to be able to manage them is a difficult thing to achieve.

Just like a problem with blood pressure or a thyroid issue, medication and ways to manage the condition all come down to a trial and error kind of situation, and in the interim, whilst things are a little unstable and up in the air, life can be difficult to say the least. The light at the end of the tunnel however is that once things are on an even keel, and you know exactly what you need to do to keep things that way, life gets better, and can stay better.

ADHD treatment NYC is at hand for those in the area who feel or suspect they may be suffering from ADHD, or for those who have struggled with symptoms for years and haven’t found a happy medium yet.

Medication, behavioral changes, coping mechanisms, understanding triggers, these are all ways to get a grip on the condition that can change a sufferer’s life so drastically.

Do you find that you often feel out of control, unorganized, you’re often late, impulsive, reckless, have a hot temper, can’t focus on one task at any one time, and become increasingly frustrated because of it? Does this cause stress and strain on your relationships, as your close love ones struggle to understand just as much as you do about what is going on? If this sums up your situation perfectly, as well as other additional symptoms and problems, then it’s certainly worth having a consultation with one of our top psychiatrists in Manhattan to determine whether you are indeed suffering with ADHD, otherwise known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

ADHD is one of those conditions that carries a stigma, something that people think only affects children, but that couldn’t be further from the truth, and a huge number of adults the world over suffer from this frustrating and often misdiagnosed condition. Whilst many go untreated because of this misdiagnosis, it’s important to seek help if you feel you may be struggling with any of the symptoms associated.

Don’t struggle for a second longer, call Trifecta Health today (212) 233-2830 for help and advice from our friendly and highly trained professionals, and look forward to a brighter, more easily managed future.

ADHD vs. TIME

Edward Fruitman No Comments

adhd-treatment-nycOur bodies change as we age, as do our needs for health and overall well-being. Research has shown that with time, the symptoms of Adult ADHD may become more severe, which can ultimately become harder to treat. However, there are many safe and effective ways one can combat this phenomenon of “age-related cognitive decline”. Starting with strict and regular monitoring of medication and treatment.

If one’s medication is not safely controlled and examined on a regular basis, one can run the risk of experiencing the negative and dangerous side effects of ADHD medications. Some of these may include; insomnia, elevated blood pressure, elevated heart rate, anxiety, depression, etc. One must check-in with their physician regularly in order to control the risk of these side effects, as these medications may be needed to control the disorder effectively. Likewise, changes in our body as we age can change our medicinal needs; either increasing or decreasing the dosage may become necessary to more effectively control the disorder. Overall, treatment will be safe and effective, if monitored regularly and observed diligently.

Furthermore, one can improve their circumstances by keeping themselves physically and mentally healthy, independently. In other words, one must remember to exercise habitually, as this will benefit both the heart and the brain. Regular exercise is said to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as ADD or ADHD. Additionally, exercise can increase focus and attention span, as the brain works to improve dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Also, one can practice cognitive stimulation, which can improve the brain’s ability to focus and problem-solve more efficiently. Examples of cognitive stimulation would include; crossword puzzles, chess, brain-strengthening games/activities, etc. These ADHD treatment options are tremendously beneficial for a healthy lifestyle, which will ultimately improve one’s ADHD and make it easier for the individual to gain control over tiresome and negative symptoms.

Lastly, it is important to remember not to let ADD or ADHD hinder your ability to live a healthy and positive lifestyle. One should continue to take part in social activities and immerse themselves in positive interpersonal relationships. Hobbies and interests should be prioritized alongside financial stability and professional/career goals. With the right treatment plan, and a monitored and healthy life-style, ADHD does not have to get in the way of your life, no matter how fast time flies. Live every day to the fullest, and remember to keep yourself healthy, focused and motivated!
