What is Esketamine?

Esketamine nasal spray is a medication used for the treatment of depression in adults who have not responded to other treatments. It is a type of anesthesia that works by affecting certain chemicals in the brain. It is only available with a prescription and should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.

Why Esketamine?

If you’ve taken two or more oral antidepressants and still experience symptoms of depression, you might have treatment-resistant depression(TRD).

It might be time to talk to your doctor about a different treatment approach. See what makes SPRAVATO® different and learn more about other patients’ experiences with SPRAVATO®.
