Re: US FDA approves new depression drug (esketamine nasal spray)

The article below, from NPR, discusses the cost of treatment (high!) and compares this newly-approved treatment (esketamine) with ketamine, which is sometimes used off-label to treat depression (and which is apparently cheaper).

"FDA Approves Esketamine Nasal Spray for Hard-to-Treat Depression"

Re: US FDA approves new depression drug (esketamine nasal spray)

Spravato? Sounds like a wine! Seriously, it DOES sound promising... But you'll only be able to use it under supervision? This does happen. I had friends who were in a GROUP, they'd catch a van to a psych clinic twice a month to take a particular medicine. So, Spravato groups? Spravato clinics?
