What is Esketamine Nasal Spray?
Esketamine is a type of ketamine, which is a dissociative anesthetic. Unlike other ketamine treatments, esketamine is administered as a nasal spray.
How Does Esketamine Nasal Spray Work?
Esketamine nasal spray works by targeting the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. By doing so, it increases the production of glutamate, a neurotransmitter that is essential for maintaining brain health.
Who Can Benefit from Esketamine Nasal Spray Treatment?
Esketamine nasal spray is specifically approved for adults with treatment-resistant depression. This includes individuals who have not responded to at least two antidepressant treatments.
What is the Esketamine Nasal Spray Treatment Process?
The esketamine treatment process involves multiple steps to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. First, you will need to schedule a consultation with a mental health professional to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. If you are eligible, you will need to receive the esketamine nasal spray in a supervised setting, such as a medical office or clinic. During the treatment, the esketamine nasal spray is administered through your nostrils. You will need to remain under medical supervision for at least two hours after the treatment to monitor for any potential side effects, including dissociation or sedation.
