Spravato is an in-office treatment that’s similar to ketamine and comes at you through your nose.
We are excited to offer this treatment as an in-network provider. It is a very affordable option for those with insurance who would like try ketamine therapy and see if it’s right for them, their family members or friends!
This treatment is for those with depression who have failed at least two antidepressants. Patients will be required to have someone drive them home and will need to stay in our office for two hours. The initial treatment consists of twice-weekly treatments for four weeks and then treatment once weekly. Ongoing treatment is usually required, which is what we also see with IV ketamine. The long-term safety study showed that esketamine was generally tolerable, with no new safety signals with dosing up to 52 weeks.
Spravto is for those with depression who are not only unable but unwilling to tolerate the side effects of traditional antidepressant medications.
Patients will be required to have someone drive them home and will need to stay in our office for two hours.
With each treatment, Spravato aims to heal your body and mind. The initial session consists of two weekly treatments for four weeks before transitioning to only one day per week.
The long-term safety study showed that esketamine was generally well tolerated, with no new safety signals emerging when subjects were dosed up to 52 weeks.
Today’s most commonly used oral antidepressants are thought to treat depression by increasing levels of neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine) in areas of the brain that affect mood.
SPRAVATO® targets the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor and is believed to work differently than currently available oral antidepressants. The exact way that SPRAVATO® works is unknown.
