Intranasal Ketamine Treatment (Spravato)
Achieve Medical Center is pleased to announce that we are now offering an FDA-approvied intranasal ketamine treatment called Spravato to treat depression and provide short-term symptom relief, often during a crisis. In most instances, the results of ketamine therapy lasts a few days or weeks, during which we encourage our patients to continue with additional mental health services to ensure a more long-term positive outcome.
What is Ketamine? Ketamine is a FDA approved anesthetic drug that is used to relieve depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and chronic pain syndromes. Ketamine has been shown to provide rapid- acting anti-depressant effects with low-dose infusions. It has been associated with quick improvement in depressive symptoms, with results lasting days to weeks. Ketamine may improve your symptoms of depression, but these effects may not be long-lasting.
