Treat Depression With SPRAVATO in Fair Lawn

It's hard to live a rewarding life when depression is getting in the way. And although there are a range of treatment options available, they don’t all work for everyone. If you’ve explored various possibilities and still agonize over incapacitating depression, The Counseling Center at Fair Lawn might have an alternative. Our accredited clinicians are skilled at treating treatment-resistant depression with a medication called SPRAVATO® in Fair Lawn.


Spravato (esketamine) CIII is a nasal spray used to manage treatment-resistant depression (TRD). If you have tried no less than two antidepressant medications with limited alleviation of depression symptoms, using SPRAVATO could benefit you. Many patients finally gain a reprieve from their depression when taking SPRAVATO alongside an antidepressant. Many people who take SPRAVATO in tandem with an oral antidepressant report decreased depressive symptoms by four weeks. Clinical studies have indicated that the effects of SPRAVATO can be felt within one day of the initial dose.

SPRAVATO is derived from ketamine. It is the lone formulation of ketamine in Fair Lawn and the US currently approved for treating depression. It boosts neurotransmitters in the brain and allows them to transmit messages more effectively to control mood and reduce negative depression symptoms.

What Are The Signs Of Treatment-Resistant Depression?

Many sufferers are able to manage symptoms of depression with common medications. But if you’ve tested out no less than two antidepressants with minimal or zero benefit, you could have treatment-resistant depression. Indications of this disorder include:

  • No or limited improvement with antidepressants and therapy over several weeks
  • Temporary improvements offset by a resumption of symptoms
  • Longer and more severe incidents of depression
  • Onset of anxiety or more frequent anxiety

If you are afflicted with any of the above, seek advice from a medical specialist to explore the next steps.

Who May Benefit From SPRAVATO?

SPRAVATO is prescribed only to adults diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression. There are possible side effects, and the presence of specific pre-existing conditions could exclude you from starting SPRAVATO.

At The Counseling Center at Fair Lawn, we only provide safe, effective forms of treatment contingent on your unique circumstances. Prior to recommending medicine to combat mental disorders, we invariably review your psychiatric and physiological history. You’ll consult with one of our physicians to determine if SPRAVATO is appropriate for you along with other antidepressant prescriptions and continuing therapy.

*Insurance and Self-Pay options are available.

If we deem you to be a suitable candidate for SPRAVATO at our Fair Lawn location, we’ll order a prescription for the nasal spray and set up a plan for taking it at our qualified facility. You may use SPRAVATO for as long as you and your clinician feel it helps you deal with your depression.

How Does SPRAVATO Assist With Substance Use Recovery?

An abundance of people who are afflicted by treatment-resistant depression experience alcohol or drug use disorders. Depression makes it hard to do the work to conquer these addictions. At The Counseling Center at Fair Lawn, we offer therapy for alcohol and drug addiction and their underlying mental illnesses. If you haven’t found an effective treatment for depression at present, and it’s hindering your addiction recovery, we could prescribe SPRAVATO.
