Am I a candidate for esketamine nasal spray?

Esketamine nasal spray is FDA approved for two indications:

  • Treatment-resistant depression (patients who have tried previous oral antidepressants with unsatisfactory results)
  • Depressive symptoms in adults with major depressive disorder with suicidal thoughts or actions
