Can Ketamine Therapy Help You?

Amelia's Story of Hope and Exploring New Options


In this video, we meet Amelia, who bravely shares her experience with treatment-resistant depression and how Spravato Ketamine Therapy offered her a newfound sense of hope. For years, Amelia battled a relentless darkness. Traditional medications left her feeling emotionally flat, and therapy provided only fleeting relief. Determined to find a solution, Amelia explored Spravato, a ketamine-based therapy for depression


”It’s like these monsters were in the basement of my house, banging at the door to try to get into the rest of the house and to me and, like, destroy me. So I always felt like I was trying to suppress that depression.”



The video delves into Amelia's journey with Spravato. We hear about the treatment process itself, which typically involves receiving a low dose of Spravato nasal spray twice weekly in a healthcare provider's office.


What is Spravato?


Spravato is the brand name for esketamine, a medication derived from ketamine, a medication historically used as an anesthetic. Ketamine has shown promise in recent years as a rapid-acting treatment for depression, particularly for those who haven't responded to traditional medications. However, due to its potential for misuse, Spravato is a tightly controlled substance and can only be administered in a certified healthcare setting under the supervision of a qualified doctor.


A short-term study of Spravato Ketamine Treatment, has shown some remarkable results. This particular study found that patients receiving Spravato alongside an oral antidepressant experienced a more rapid and significant reduction in depressive symptoms compared to those who received a placebo nasal spray with an oral antidepressant. Interestingly, the study also showed that most of this improvement occurred within the first 24 hours after the initial Spravato dose. While both groups continued to improve over the four weeks of the study, the gap in improvement between the Spravato and placebo groups remained consistent.


Ketamine Therapy Provides Hope for Amelia

Amelia's story, along with the promising results of clinical studies, offer hope for those struggling with treatment-resistant depression. However, it's important to remember that Spravato is a relatively new treatment, and while Amelia's experience is encouraging, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution.


By sharing her story, Amelia offers a beacon of hope for those struggling with treatment-resistant depression. The video doesn't claim Spravato is a cure-all, but it highlights its potential to help manage depression and rediscover a sense of well-being.
