Combat Depression With SPRAVATO in Millbury

It's not easy to live a fulfilling life when depression is getting in the way. And even though there are a range of treatment options out there, they won’t be the answer for every person. If it seems like you’ve been through them all and still suffer from debilitating depression, The Counseling Center At Millbury might have an alternative. Our licensed clinicians are experienced in combating treatment-resistant depression with a medication called SPRAVATO® in Millbury.


Spravato (esketamine) CIII is a nasal spray utilized to manage treatment-resistant depression (TRD). If you have tried no less than two antidepressant prescriptions with limited improvement in depressive symptoms, utilizing SPRAVATO may be beneficial. Many patients finally find relief for their depression when taking SPRAVATO in conjunction with an antidepressant. A good number of patients who take SPRAVATO with an oral antidepressant benefit from reduced depressive symptoms by four weeks. Scientific studies have demonstrated that the advantages of taking SPRAVATO may be felt within one day of the initial treatment.

SPRAVATO is a derivative of ketamine. It is the lone formulation of ketamine in Millbury and the US currently allowed for treating depression. It boosts neurotransmitters in the brain and helps them better communicate to regulate mood and diminish harmful depression symptoms.

What Are The Signs Of Treatment-Resistant Depression?

Numerous sufferers successfully treat symptoms of depression with medication. But if you’ve taken at least two antidepressants with minimal or zero change, you might be inflicted with treatment-resistant depression. Indications of this disorder include:

  • No response to antidepressants and therapy over multiple weeks
  • Brief improvements offset by a resumption of symptoms
  • More severe or longer occurences of depression
