Spravato™ Q&A

What is Spravato?

Spravato is an FDA-approved nasal spray containing esketamine, an anesthetic sometimes used during pain management and mental health treatments. This solution is effective for treating major depressive disorder (MDD) with suicidal actions or thoughts and treatment-resistant depression, which is a form of depression not relieved by traditional antidepressants.

What can Spravato address?

Spravato can ease symptoms of depression, including

  • Social isolation
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities
  • Anxiety
  • Extreme sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Worthlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Substance misuse
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Physical aches and pains

Spravato provides fast results, much quicker than many other mental health treatments.

At the first sign of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or other mental health concerns, see the Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC team for an evaluation. 

Is Spravato right for me?

To diagnose and treat depression, a provider discusses your symptoms, medical history, past treatments, medications, and lifestyle. During a psychiatric evaluation, they inquire about your mood, past trauma, medications, behaviors, emotions, and more. Your specialist determines if you’re a candidate for Spravato, ketamine infusions, or combinations of depression treatments.

You may not be a candidate for Spravato if you have a blood vessel disease, a history of bleeding in your brain, or allergic reactions to ketamine or other Spravato ingredients. 

What happens when using Spravato?

When using Spravato nasal spray, your provider shows you how much to take and when to use it. It’s important to follow their instructions exactly to achieve the most effective outcome. Spravato treatment is safe, painless, and effective without extensive downtime.

What should I expect after my treatment?

When leaving the clinic after using Spravato, have a family member or friend drive you home. Take the rest of the day off work.

The Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC specialists can also infuse ketamine into your bloodstream or provide lifestyle coaching, therapy referrals, and medication management. 

Your Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC provider determines when it’s safe to schedule your next Spravato treatment session.  We are a Certified Center for Spravato treaeatment. Call the office any time with concerns or questions.
