Esketamine Nasal Spray: A Breakthrough Treatment for Bipolar Depression

Esketamine nasal spray is a new and innovative treatment that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of bipolar depression. It is a game-changer for those who have not found relief from other treatments. At Nao Medical, we understand the impact that bipolar depression can have on a person’s life, which is why we are proud to offer esketamine as part of our comprehensive approach to treating mental health conditions.

What is Esketamine Nasal Spray?

Esketamine nasal spray is a type of medication that is delivered through the nose. It is a form of ketamine, a medication that has been used as an anesthetic for many years. However, esketamine is used in much lower doses than ketamine used for anesthesia.

How Does Esketamine Nasal Spray Work?

Esketamine works by targeting the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. This receptor plays a role in depression and anxiety, and by targeting it, esketamine helps to reduce symptoms of bipolar depression. Studies have shown that esketamine can start working within hours or days, compared to traditional antidepressants that can take several weeks to start working. This makes it an ideal treatment option for those who need relief quickly.

How is Esketamine Administered?

Esketamine nasal spray is administered in a clinical setting under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Patients inhale the medication through their nose, and the effects can be felt within minutes. Patients who are prescribed esketamine will need to come in for regular treatments, which can vary in frequency depending on their specific needs.

What are the Benefits of Esketamine Nasal Spray?

Esketamine offers several benefits for those who are struggling with bipolar depression. Some of the benefits include:

  • Rapid onset of action
  • Potential for rapid relief of symptoms
  • Effective for treatment-resistant depression
  • Safe and well-tolerated
