Sometimes, you need additional care or treatment to help you move forward on your path. Alongside therapy and psychiatry, we offer Spravato and transcranial magnetic stimulation as well as nutrition support.
Spravato is the brand name of the intranasal form of esketamine and is approved by the FDA for severe, treatment-resistant depression. This treatment is meant to supplement an oral antidepressant in order to further improve symptoms of depression.
Spravato may be an appropriate course of treatment for individuals who have tried multiple oral antidepressants from different classes and did not have an adequate response or could not tolerate the side effects.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is used to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. TMS has demonstrated the ability to create changes in these areas of the brain that regulate mood.
While psychotherapy and antidepressants are typically highly effective in treating major depression, they may not work for all people. TMS may be used as an alternative treatment or to augment medications or psychotherapy. Individuals who haven’t had a good response to antidepressants or who haven’t tolerated psychiatric medications could be good candidates for TMS.
We currently offer TMS at our Irvine office, and are in the process of opening a treatment center in Oakland. For more information or to schedule, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-588-8995.
