What is Spravato? How Does it work?
Spravato is a prescription medicine used with an antidepressant taken by mouth for adults with TRD. Esketamine, the active ingredient in Spravato, has a unique mechanism that targets different pathways in the brain to those affected by other known antidepressants.
Unlike many other antidepressants, Spravato is administered via nasal spray, allowing it to be quickly absorbed. It works to rebalance certain chemical messengers in the brain that affect mood. Post-treatment observation is also necessary, ensuring patient safety and monitoring potential side effects.
If you’ve tried two or more different treatments for depression, but your symptoms persist, it can feel frustrating. Sometimes, standard treatments may not be effective enough, or your symptoms may only temporarily improve before returning.

Interested in other depression treatment options?
