Service Description

Spravato is the only FDA approved Esketamine treatment our there! While depression is a highly treatable problem, it can take time and patience to find a protocol that delivers substantial, sustained symptom relief. Even so, conventional treatment strategies fail to provide adequate or enduring relief for many people. Here’s what you should know about Spravato™, the fast-acting esketamine nasal spray that was recently approved by the FDA to help patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD). HOW KETAMINE TREATS DEPRESSION Ketamine is an FDA-approved anesthetic that’s been widely used in the operating room, on the battlefield, and in veterinary clinics for roughly half a century. At the turn of the century, researchers began exploring ketamine as a possible antidepressant. What they found was promising — ketamine binds to NMDA receptors in the brain, causing the rapid activation of glutamate; glutamate is a neurotransmitter that helps “switch on” key brain circuits that shape your mood and drive your behavior. Traditional antidepressants also activate glutamate, but they do it in a more roundabout way. After they build up in your system for a few weeks, they activate a class of neurotransmitters called monoamines (serotonin, norepinephrine). These newly activated neurotransmitters are what bind to NMDA receptors, activate glutamate transmission, and boost your mood. Because ketamine works directly on NMDA receptors and glutamate, its effects are far more rapid and dramatic — most people experience significant symptom relief within a few short hours. Spravato is the brand-name of the esketamine nasal spray that was approved by the FDA in March of 2019. It’s the first treatment of its kind, and the only NMDA receptor antagonist that’s FDA-approved for the treatment of persistent depression in adults.
