Default Has anyone tried Spravato?

Has anyone tried the newly-approved (in the US) drug Spravato? I was wondering if it worked as wondrously as it is purported to?

Well, it depends on your condition. Ketamine is "successful" for 30% of treatment-resistant depression sufferers like me for instance.

I'm not saying 30% is bad (it's actually very good), just that its wondrousness depends on your condition.

Sorry, to answer your question, no, I've only tried Ketamine, which made me more depressed, depressingly enough.

i'd seek out esketamine if it was an emergency and I was sick and tired of going in and out of the useless ER. i have treatment resistant depression and am on an SSRI. basically just lay in bed all day with no energy. but this treatment is only for a few weeks isn't it. why isnt it long term
