What to Expect with Spravato Treatment

Spravato (esketamine) is taken as a nasal spray in our office.

 

After you administer Spravato, you will be observed in our office for at least two hours. One of our health care professionals monitors you for side effects.

 

Spravato can cause a temporary increase in your blood pressure. We will check your blood pressure before taking Spravato, and for at least two hours after you take it.   

 

We recommend that you bring headphones and your favorite music, a book, or some other diversion to enjoy during this time. 

 

You will need someone to drive you home.

 

The usual treatment pattern is to take Spravato twice a week for the first month, then less frequently.
