Spravato Q&A

What is Spravato® nasal spray?

Spravato is a prescription nasal spray medicine, often used with oral antidepressants to reduce symptoms in adults with treatment-resistant depression. So if you haven’t responded well to other mental health solutions, Spravato might be a good match for you.

What are the signs and symptoms of depression?

Signs and symptoms of depression include:

  • Restlessness 
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Feelings of worthlessness, guilt, or self-blame
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Drug or alcohol misuse 
  • Back pain or other aches and pains
  • Tearfulness, sadness, hopelessness, or emptiness
  • Insomnia or other sleeping problems
  • Angry outbursts
  • Irritability or frustration 
  • Loss of interest
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety

You might notice ongoing body aches and pains due to depression. The condition can develop because of genetic traits, family history of depression, or traumatic events. Examples include ongoing diseases or illnesses, divorce, car accidents, job loss, or a death in your family.

Spravato is a simple, non-invasive solution for depression that can restore your quality of life and help you find happiness when other treatments haven’t worked.

Is Spravato treatment for depression right for me?

To find out if Spravato is the right depression treatment for you, the Dura Medical team discusses your medical history, lifestyle, symptoms, and preferences. They ask you a series of questions during a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and may order blood tests to detect or rule out underlying medical problems.

What should I expect during Spravato treatment?

When taking Spravato, follow your Dura Medical provider’s instructions to ensure the best results. Simply use the nasal spray as directed and call your provider if you experience negative side effects or have questions or concerns about your treatment.

Your mental health specialist might recommend you try more than one type of treatment for depression. They may suggest you make lifestyle changes, try counseling or psychotherapy, receive ketamine infusions, or undergo transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

The Dura Medical team personalizes each treatment for depression or other mental health disorders to give you the best outcome. They monitor your mental health and make changes to your treatment plan as needed.
