SPRAVATO®

    spravato logo

    SPRAVATO® is a prescription medicine, used along with an antidepressant taken by mouth, for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) in adults.

    Treatment-Resistant Depression

    Treatment-resistant depression is diagnosed in adults who were struggling with major depressive disorder and had not responded adequately to at least two different antidepressants of adequate dose and duration in the current depressive episode.

    Treatment with SPRAVATO® 

    SPRAVATO® is taken along with an oral antidepressant. You will administer SPRAVATO® nasal spray yourself under the supervision of a provider at Redefine Healthcare. SPRAVATO® sessions are twice a week for the first four weeks, and then once a week after the first four weeks. After this, SPRAVATO® is usually taken either once a week or once every two weeks, but can vary depending on the response.

    Advantages of SPRAVATO®

    • Alternative to ketamine infusion: IV Ketamine infusions have been shown in multiple large randomized controlled clinical trials to be safe and effective as a treatment for depression. However, some patients prefer not to have an IV infusion. Spravato provides an alternative, FDA-approved ketamine based treatment for depression.
    • Medical supervision: During your SPRAVATO™ treatment regimen, your doctor will work closely with you to ensure your well-being. You will receive each dosage at the office.
    • New option for treatment-resistant depression: SPRAVATO™ is one of the first new types of depression medication in decades. If you don’t have success with other depression medicines, SPRAVATO™ may be an alternative for you.

    Today’s most commonly used oral antidepressants are thought to treat depression by increasing levels of neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine) in areas of the brain that affect mood.  SPRAVATO® works differently in that it targets the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor and is believed to work differently than currently available oral antidepressants.
