Spravato Esketamine is a nasal spray treatment used to treat Treatment Resistant Depression and Major Depressive Disorders with suicidal thoughts. Spravato is used in conjunction with oral antidepressants and it is effective in significantly reducing extreme depressive symptoms when compared to only taking oral antidepressants. Spravato Esketamine is FDA approved and covered by most insurance. This treatment can be done only in a Spravato Certified Treatment Center.
Spravato nasal spray is administered at the doctor’s office. It is advised not to eat at least 2 hours and not to drink 30 minutes before the treatment. Each device will contain 2 sprays. Relax on a chair and spray one time in each nostril by slightly tilting your head back. You will be required to stay in the doctor’s office for at least 2 hours to monitor for any side effects.
The dosage of the medicine depends on the severity of the illness diagnosed. Typically, the treatment will be for 2 times a week for the first four weeks followed by once a week for another four weeks and so on. The dosage can be increased or decreased by your doctor depending on the improvements in your mental health condition.
Some of the side effects after Spravato treatment are:
All of these side effects do not appear for everyone. Your doctor will continuously monitor you for 2 hours to notice any major side effects after the Spravato treatment. Some patients might feel sleepy after the treatment, hence you will need someone to drive you back home after the treatment.
You need to discuss with your doctor if you have any allergies to medicines/food. If you take any particular medicine regularly, then you need to mention it too.
