Millions of Americans suffer from clinical depression and take an antidepressant to help subdue their debilitating symptoms. While medications have helped many people, antidepressants do not work for everyone. Many people still suffer from feelings of hopelessness, sadness, lack of enthusiasm, loss of energy, and interruptions in sleep and appetite.
Antidepressants are not meant to be taken indefinitely. Patients can quickly develop an addiction to these medications, and the effectiveness of the medicines can weaken over time. Ketamine Nasal Spray is now available to patients who have completed a set amount of time on an antidepressant. To combat addiction, patients are taken off antidepressants at a specific time. Unfortunately, some people find that no longer having the medication brings back their depression symptoms in full force. With Ketamine Nasal Spray, patients can continue to see the benefits of depression therapy without being placed on an extended dose of antidepressants.
An intranasal Ketamine spray is prescribed to all patients following the conclusion of IV Ketamine treatments to continue the benefits they have achieved through therapy for depression. One of the most significant benefits of an intranasal Ketamine spray is that it is fast-acting. While oral antidepressants can take weeks to enter into a person’s system and start working fully, nasal Ketamine spray works right away. Patients have noted relief in symptoms within just a few hours, and this relief can last for several days. Ketamine has significant effects on glutamate, which is a neurotransmitter that is prevalent in the brain. The intranasal Ketamine spray works differently from other depression drugs because of its immediate impact on the brain’s makeup.
