Esketamine treatments can be effective in treating Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). It has been effective in reducing symptoms of depression for patients who are considered treatment-resistant. Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) means that an individual does not respond to traditional forms of depression treatment such as antidepressants. 

Every patient responds to therapy differently, however research shows that depression symptoms were “much improved” or “very much improved” in patients after one to three months of esketamine treatment. We will also monitor your response to the course of treatment. Before every session, an A Better Way clinician will ask about any side effects you may be experiencing, symptoms of depression and whether or not you are experiencing improvement in your depression symptoms.
