The FDA approved Spravato, which contains esketamine, a cousin of party drug ketamine. Medical experts believe this drug will be more effective than other famous drugs such as Prozac.

The drug is developed by Johnson & Johnson and will be administered as a nasal spray to be used with an oral antidepressant.

To avoid addiction and abuse, Courtney Billington, president of Janssen Neuroscience (part of Johnson & Johnson) says, “Spravato will not be dispensed directly to a patient to take at home. It will only be available in approved and certified treatment centers.”
