Welcome to A Ray of Hope: Great Lakes Institute of Neurology and Psychiatry, your trusted neurology and psychiatry care provider located in Libertyville, Illinois, and Kenosha, Wisconsin. We understand how challenging treatment-resistant (TRD) or clinical depression can be for patients and their families. If you’ve tried multiple medications and therapies without success, we offer a promising new option: Spravato (esketamine) nasal spray. This innovative treatment can provide significant relief for those struggling with TRD or clinical depression.

What is Spravato?

Spravato is an FDA-approved esketamine nasal spray specifically designed to treat adults with treatment-resistant or clinical depression. Esketamine is a derivative of ketamine, an anesthetic that has shown rapid antidepressant effects. Spravato works differently from traditional antidepressants, targeting NMDA receptors in the brain to help alleviate depressive symptoms.

How Spravato Works

In our brain, there exist neurotransmitters (Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine) and they travel along neuropathways. When these neurotransmitters exist in balance, we feel the typical highs and lows of life. However, when these neurotransmitters exist out of balance, we can feel sad, even when we want to feel happy. Conventional antidepressants function by supplementing us with the neurotransmitters missing from this balance. However, if the neuropathway is compromised, the neurotransmitters cannot exist in balance. Esketamine, however, works to repair these neuro pathways so that, together with conventional antidepressants, these neurotransmitters can exist in balance.

  • Mechanism of Action: Spravato targets NMDA receptors, which are involved in mood regulation.
  • Administration: Administered as a nasal spray under medical supervision in our clinic.
  • Rapid Relief: Patients often experience improvement in symptoms within hours to days.

Benefits of Spravato for Treatment-Resistant Depression/Clinical Depression

Spravato offers several advantages for patients who have not responded to other treatments. Here are some key benefits:

Rapid Onset of Action

Unlike traditional antidepressants, which can take weeks to show effects, Spravato can provide relief within hours to days. This rapid onset is crucial for patients in severe distress.

High Efficacy

Clinical studies have shown that Spravato is effective in reducing depressive symptoms in patients with TRD, offering hope to those who have tried other treatments without success.

Improved Quality of Life

By alleviating depressive symptoms, Spravato helps improve overall functioning and quality of life, enabling patients to engage more fully in daily activities and relationships.
