You have probably heard of ketamine. Esketamine is a derivative of ketamine that is branded as Spravato, which is now FDA approved to treat treatment resistant depression. Studies have shown that ketamine can also help with suicidal thinking, certain anxiety disorders, PTSD symptoms, certain pain disorders, and tinnitus. Intranasal esketamine works quickly, effectively, and with few known side effects.

While the evidence for this is still in its infancy, some clients feel that this can help determine that certain supplements can be beneficial.
