Learn Whether SPRAVATO® Is Right for You
Anyone who lives with depression knows how difficult it is to find a treatment that works in the long term. For most patients, treating depression is a trial and error process that can seem unending. If few other treatments have relieved your depression symptoms, be sure to consider SPRAVATO®. This innovative medication has been shown to improve depressive symptoms when prescribed by a medical professional. The team at Ketamine Care is well versed in the pros and cons of this nasal spray, and we’ll help you determine whether SPRAVATO® is right for you.
What Is SPRAVATO®?
SPRAVATO® is a prescription nasal spray that can significantly reduce the symptoms of depression when used in conjunction with antidepressants. This medication is particularly effective for adults with depression that hasn’t responded to traditional treatments. Despite SPRAVATO®’s numerous benefits, it should never be used as an alternative to hospitalization.
Care Following SPRAVATO® Treatments
Good news—SPRAVATO® treatments don’t require any significant aftercare! However, we ask our patients to refrain from driving or any activity that requires complete alertness. Our physicians recommend waiting to do these activities until the next day after you’ve gotten plenty of sleep. We also encourage our clients to watch for any potential side effects and to call their doctor if they experience any of these rare, but serious, symptoms:
- High blood pressure
- Shortness of breath
- Severe headaches
- Problems thinking or remembering
- Changes in vision
- Frequent or painful urination
