Meet i-spero®

It commonly takes months before clinicians identify effective antidepressant treatment for their depressed patients. During this period a person's ability to work and function socially is severely impaired. i-spero® helps sufferers get better faster and return to work sooner.

Compliance in first 8 weeks


i-spero® will help to get the patient on the right treatment at the right time, and allow both the patient and care providers to monitor symptoms through to recovery. This will improve primary care resilience whilst avoiding unnecessary referrals to secondary care and specialist providers associated with a lack of primary care capacity. This benefits the whole health system economy.
