Are you grappling with depression? Well, there’s an alternative solution available now. Esketamine, which goes by the name Spravato, introduces a groundbreaking approach to treatment. It’s the inaugural prescription nasal spray designed for:
If you’ve already experimented with two or more oral medications and are still confronted by persistent depressive symptoms, Spravato esketamine nasal spray could represent your next therapeutic step. Spravato, a low-dosage, ketamine-based remedy for depression, operates in a distinct manner compared to oral medications, offering swift relief from depression.
Proven effective for treatment-resistant depression, SPRAVATO® is a prescription medication that, when taken orally in conjunction with an antidepressant, is employed to address the following conditions in adults:
Treatment-resistant depression (TRD).
Depressive symptoms in adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) who have suicidal thoughts or engage in suicidal actions.
Oral antidepressants function by elevating the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine in brain regions that influence mood. In contrast, Spravato operates differently by targeting the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, allowing it to act swiftly and effectively.
ReYou Ketamine Therapy typically accepts insurance for both Spravato medication and its administration. Our dedicated team takes care of all the necessary paperwork, freeing you to concentrate on what truly matters.
While some individuals experiencing depression and other mental health conditions find relief from their symptoms through oral medications, it’s important to recognize that traditional antidepressants may not be both effective and well-tolerated by everyone. Additionally, persistent symptoms can disrupt the comfort and efficacy of talk therapy.
Spravato offers a distinct approach, rapidly alleviating your most challenging symptoms. By acting as an NMDA receptor antagonist that triggers the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), ketamine stimulates the limbic system, which is associated with memory, emotions, and behavior. This mechanism enhances the connection between conscious and subconscious levels of the mind.
