Cool Spring Psychiatric Group offers Spravato, a physician-supervised nasal spray therapy for the treatment of treatment-resistant depression and major depressive disorder with suicidal thoughts or actions. Read on to find out if Spravato treatment in Franklin is right for you or your loved one.
WHAT IS SPRAVATO?
Though its exact mechanism of action remains unknown, research suggests Spravato works by targeting the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, which plays a role in the brain’s ability to regulate mood. At the same time, new synapses are created to rapidly alleviate the most severe symptoms of depression.
Spravato must be administered by a licensed medical professional and is not meant to be taken regularly. In addition, Spravato is not meant for use as a medicine to prevent or relieve pain.
WHAT IS ESKETAMINE?
After decades of study, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2019 approved a ketamine-based nasal spray—Spravato—for the treatment of clinical and treatment-resistant depressions. The nasal spray is used in conjunction with an oral antidepressant.
SIDE EFFECTS OF SPRAVATO
Side effects tend to peak within 40 minutes of treatment and wear off within two hours. Healthcare providers are required to monitor those taking Spravato for at least two hours after taking it. In any event, your psychiatric provider will review the side effects when discussing whether Spravato is right for you.
