What is Spravato (Esketamine)?

Spravato is an FDA-approved nasal spray designed to treat major depressive disorder in patients who do not respond to traditional antidepressant medications. It has been rigorously studied in clinical trials and is FDA-approved for clinical use. Spravato therapy offers new hope for individuals struggling with chronic, severe, and treatment-resistant depression, helping them find the relief they need.

How Does Spravato (Esketamine) Work?

Spravato, also known as Esketamine, operates differently than traditional oral antidepressants. One of its key benefits is that its antidepressant effects are typically felt more quickly.

Spravato targets the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, which is a receptor of glutamate, the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the human brain. NMDA receptors play a crucial role in regulating the brain’s ability to build and maintain neural pathways, a process known as neuroplasticity.

While the exact cause of depression remains unclear, a leading theory suggests that a reduction in neuroplasticity is a contributing factor. By binding to NMDA receptors, Spravato promotes neuroplasticity, potentially alleviating the symptoms of depression more effectively than traditional treatments.

Questions about getting started?

What is the Difference Between Ketamine and Esketamine?

Unlike intravenous (IV) ketamine infusions, Spravato (esketamine) is FDA-approved and can be covered by most health insurance policies, including those in Peekskill, NY.

Ketamine and esketamine are closely related compounds. Esketamine is the “S” enantiomer of ketamine, meaning it is a mirror image of the ketamine molecule. This slight variation allows esketamine to be suspended in a fluid and administered nasally. As a result, patients in Peekskill, NY, can benefit from the convenience and insurance coverage of Spravato treatments at our Westchester County clinic.

What Can I Expect from a Spravato (Esketamine) Treatment in Peekskill, NY?

Your individual experience with the benefits of Spravato may vary, but here are some general guidelines:

  • Patients must be evaluated and approved by a physician before starting treatment.
  • You will administer the nasal spray yourself under the supervision of your doctor.
  • After Spravato is administered, patients must remain in our Westchester County healthcare setting for 2 hours of observation. During the observation period, most patients like to relax, listen to calming music, and/or use a meditation app.
  • You will not be allowed to drive on treatment days.
  • The general recommendation for most patients is to schedule treatments twice per week for the first 4 weeks. Then, treatments will be weekly for the next 4 weeks.
  • After 8 weeks of treatments, you and your doctor will discuss how long you will stay on Spravato based on your response and how long symptoms remain in remission.

What are the Possible Side Effects of Spravato?

Compared to oral antidepressants, many patients report little to no significant side effects with Spravato. Some potential side effects that may occur right after the administration of Spravato include the following:

  • Feeling a bit tipsy, happy, or excited
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Feeling disconnected from yourself, your thoughts, feelings, and things around you (dissociation)

Is Spravato (Esketamine) Safe for Me to Take?

In general, yes. The use of Spravato in patients with depression has been rigorously studied in clinical trials and is approved by the FDA.

Although no medication is without some possible risks, the FDA has determined that for qualified patients, the benefits of treatment with Spravato for depression outweigh the risks. Combined with the expertise and supervision of our medical professionals at Marpa Minds the overall risks are low.
