What is Spravato (Esketamine)?

Spravato is an FDA-approved nasal spray that can be an effective treatment option for some patients with major depressive disorder who aren't responding to traditional antidepressant medications.

Rigorously studied in clinical trials and FDA-approved for clinical use, Spravato therapy may be able to help those with chronic, severe, and treatment-resistant depression finally find relief.




How Does Spravato (Esketamine) Work?

Spravato, also known as Esketamine treatment, works differently than oral antidepressants. The antidepressant effects are usually felt faster compared to traditional oral antidepressants.  

Spravato targets the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. NMDA is a receptor of glutamate, the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the human brain. NMDA receptors play an integral role in regulating the brain's ability to build and maintain neural pathways. The process of creating and reinforcing new neural pathways is called neuroplasticity.

While the cause of depression is not fully understood, one compelling theory is that a reduction in maintained neuroplasticity is a factor. Spravato binds to NMDA receptors in a way that encourages neuroplasticity.
