Be Prepared to Manage the Depression Med Esketamine (Spravato)
You'll hear buzz about new Rx esketamine (Spravato, sprah-VAH-toh) nasal spray for treating adults with resistant depression.
Some experts already use low-dose IV ketamine infusions in these patients...since growing data suggest this may "jump-start" improvement.
Esketamine is the active isomer of ketamine. It's given intranasally twice a week for 4 weeks...then once every 1 or 2 weeks.
