Ketamine For Depression
At Park Avenue Medical, we know the frustration and pain associated with depression, especially when treatments fail again and again. Our patients often remark that Spravato® (esketamine) has changed their lives like no other treatment, thoroughly improving their mental state. We love helping our patients defeat their depression, and we hope this new technique will help us treat more people. We only use Spravato® (esketamine) for treatment-resistant depression, so we will try to treat your depression in other ways before trying this treatment.
Before treatment begins, the patient’s physician or psychologist must refer them to Park Avenue Medical for treatment with Spravato® (esketamine). The patient should refrain from eating for at least two hours and drinking for at least 30 minutes before treatment. We administer Spravato® (esketamine) nasally, and we monitor the patient for 2 hours afterwards to ensure the patient feels okay.
