Esketamine Treatment at Renaissance Behavioral Medicine

Welcome to Renaissance Behavioral Medicine, where we offer cutting-edge treatments to help you achieve optimal mental health. Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD, a double board-certified adult and child psychiatrist, is dedicated to providing innovative and effective treatments for mental health disorders. One such breakthrough therapy is Esketamine Treatment for treatment-resistant depression.

What is Esketamine Treatment?

Esketamine is a groundbreaking therapy approved by the FDA for individuals suffering from treatment-resistant depression. Unlike traditional antidepressants that can take weeks to show effects, esketamine works rapidly to alleviate symptoms of depression, offering new hope for those who have not found relief with other treatments.

How Does Esketamine Work?

Esketamine is administered as a nasal spray under the direct supervision of a healthcare provider. This innovative treatment targets the NMDA receptor in the brain, which is thought to play a role in mood regulation. By acting on this receptor, esketamine can quickly reduce depressive symptoms, providing relief when other medications have failed.

Our Approach

At Renaissance Behavioral Medicine, we prioritize your safety and well-being. Our trained professionals oversee each esketamine treatment session to ensure it is administered safely and effectively. Here's what you can expect:

  1. Initial Consultation: Your journey with esketamine treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Etefia. During this consultation, we will assess your medical history, current symptoms, and previous treatments to determine if esketamine is the right option for you.

  2. Treatment Sessions: Esketamine treatments are conducted in a controlled medical environment. The nasal spray is administered, and you will be monitored closely by our healthcare team. Each session typically lasts about two hours, allowing time for the medication to take effect and for post-administration monitoring.

  3. Monitoring and Support: Throughout the treatment process, Dr. Etefia and our team will closely monitor your progress and watch for any potential side effects. We provide ongoing support to ensure you feel comfortable and informed at every step.

  4. Follow-Up Care: After the initial treatment phase, follow-up sessions are scheduled to maintain the benefits of esketamine therapy. Dr. Etefia will work with you to develop a long-term plan to manage your depression and support your overall mental health.
