What is Spravato ?

SPRAVATO® (esketamine) is the first prescription nasal spray,  approved by the FDA taken with an oral antidepressant, for:

  • Adults with treatment-resistant depression
  • Depressive symptoms in adults with major depressive disorder with suicidal thoughts or actions

Spravato is considered by many to be one of the biggest breakthroughs in depression treatment since the advent of Prozac. Spravato is the brand name for esketamine.

Spravato is prescribed by a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner, and administered in a controlled environment.  The effects of Spravato are felt within hours, compared to traditional depression medication which can take several weeks to months to take effect. Spravato can serve as a catalyst for therapeutic growth for many for whom more traditional mental health interventions have fallen short.
