Using Spravato nasal spray for treatment-resistant depression can help you feel better physically and emotionally. Spravato is a prescription medication that reduces depression that hasn’t gone away with other treatments. It’s a nasal spray that’s FDA-approved to help you feel better as quickly as possible.
Common symptoms you may have with depression include:
Your psychiatrist might first recommend oral medication, psychotherapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), lifestyle changes, or other treatments before trying Spravato. For best results, they often recommend you take oral antidepressants in addition to using Spravato.
Spravato is a controlled substance, meaning it has a high risk of dependency and the potential for misuse. If you’re a candidate for Spravato, your psychiatrist closely monitors your use of the product to ensure it remains your best treatment option. Spravato is only available for in-office use, as you use the spray under medical supervision.
During Spravato administration at Compassionate Psychiatric Services, you get to relax for up to two hours in a comfortable room containing reclining massage chairs. During treatment, you can read a book, listen to music, or watch other types of entertainment to make each experience enjoyable.
Your psychiatrist helps you breathe in Spravato nasal spray and makes each treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
To determine if you’re a candidate for Spravato, your Compassionate Psychiatric Services specialist discusses your symptoms and medical history.
They review your current treatment regimen and complete a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation by asking you a series of questions. Your mental health specialist reviews the pros and cons of each treatment to find one that’s best for you. They could suggest you make lifestyle changes and undergo counseling sessions in addition to using Spravato nasal spray.
Compassionate Psychiatric Services also offers pharmacogenomic testing to analyze your body’s likely response to common psychiatric treatments.
