Is Spravato Right For Me?
Spravato, an esketamine nasal spray, is a unique medication that targets specific kinds of depression.

Then call The Counseling Center to discuss future steps.
*This assessment should not be considered a substitute for a proper clinical appraisal.
What Is Spravato And Treatment-Resistant Depression?
Spravato is the proprietary name for the drug esketamine, a nasal spray used along with oral antidepressants to treat depression. In particular, it's approved for those with treatment-resistant depression. Taken under medical observation, Spravato affects particular receptors in the brain to help form new pathways and mitigate the symptoms of depression.
You may have treatment-resistant depressive disorder if:
- You are confirmed to have a type of depression
- You have tried at least two different antidepressant medications previously
- You are presently experiencing moderate to severe depression symptoms
