“Depression has been a thread in my life for decades. When I was a young mother raising two children, I would spend hours a day in bed playing solitaire to block out my despair. I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and spent years taking one antidepressant after another. Nothing worked for me. Eventually, I was diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression. I read about the clinical trials for SPRAVATO®, and my psychiatrist said I was a candidate.
“SPRAVATO® helped me get beyond the depression symptoms that held me back for so long. Today, I’m leading a class in mental health, building a greenhouse in my backyard and spending time at the beach with my dog, Oshi. I’ve been on SPRAVATO® and I go every other week for my treatment. Having my depression symptoms improve after a lifetime of struggle has been amazing.”
This is Robin’s experience and individual results may vary. When discussing treatment with SPRAVATO®, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about your complete medical history, including if you have a history of abusing prescription or street drugs or a problem with alcohol. Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant. Your healthcare provider will discuss the possible side effects of SPRAVATO® so that you can decide together if SPRAVATO® is right for you.
