What Is Spravato And Treatment-Resistant Depression?
Spravato is the trademark name for esketamine, a nasal spray used alongside oral antidepressants to treat depression. Notably, it's approved for individuals with treatment-resistant depression. Given under medical observation, Spravato affects certain receptors in the brain to help form new pathways and mitigate the symptoms of depression.
You might have treatment-resistant depressive disorder if:
- You are verified as having a form of depression
- You have already tried at least two different antidepressant medications
- You are currently dealing with moderate to severe depression symptoms
