What Is Spravato And Treatment-Resistant Depression?
Spravato is the proprietary name for esketamine, a nasal spray taken along with oral antidepressants to manage depression. Specifically, it's sanctioned for individuals with treatment-resistant depression. Given under medical direction, Spravato affects certain receptors in the brain to help make new pathways and alleviate the symptoms of depression.
You could have treatment-resistant depressive disorder if:
- You are verified as having a type of depression
- You have already taken two or more different antidepressant medications
- You are presently enduring moderate to severe symptoms of depression
