Spravato REMS Therapy
New days lie ahead with Spravato for those with treatment resistant depression
Treatment resistant depression (TRD) is defined as depression that fails to respond to two or more antidepressant medications at maximum dose and duration. Unfortunately, many patients with depression fall into this TRD category. Studies show that about 1 out of every 3 depressed patients suffer from TRD.
Spravato (esketamine), an FDA-approved nasal spray, is used to treat TRD and major depressive disorder accompanied by suicidal thoughts, and comes in the form of a nasal spray. Spravato is not a medication that one takes at home and can only be administered in Spravato treatment center.
Treatment resistant depression can be hard to treat, but now patients and doctors have a new safe and effective treatment option, Spravato Therapy. It is important to remember that depression is a chronic condition that can get better with treatment.
Spravato nasal spray is administered by the patient under the supervision of a specialty trained healthcare provider and is not prescribed to the patient to be administered at home. For those with suicidal thoughts or actions, Spravato does not take the place of emergency help or hospitalization when needed or directed by a physician.
When visiting our treatment center, patients can expect to relax in a massaging chair in a quiet room for approximately 2-hours while being monitored closely by our trained Spravato specialists.
