Need To Know
At My Psychiatrist, we understand the importance of utilizing all available treatment options for mental health conditions, which is why we are proud to be a certified Spravato treatment center.
What is Spravato?
Spravato is a medication used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD) in patients who have not responded to first-line treatments, including oral antidepressants and psychotherapy. MDD is a serious and life-threatening condition affecting over 16 million people in the US and over 300 million worldwide.
It can cause individuals to be unable to work, maintain relationships, attend to self-care, and in severe cases, may lead to hospitalization or suicide. MDD is considered the leading cause of disability worldwide and is associated with increased mortality rates.
How Can I be Treated with Spravato?
At My Psychiatrist, we offer Spravato treatment to patients referred by their treating psychiatrist and have determined it is an appropriate option for their condition. The first month of Spravato treatment is twice weekly for 30 days, followed by once weekly for 30 days, and then once weekly or every two weeks. Your treatment plan will be individualized to meet your unique needs.
To learn more about Spravato and determine if it may be a good option for you, we encourage you to review the information provided on our website, including the literature and informative videos on the Spravato website.
Please note that initiating treatment with Spravato is more involved than other treatment options. We encourage you to review and decide if the process is feasible before scheduling your consultation.
Schedule your initial consultation with My Psychiatrist to determine if Spravato may be an appropriate treatment option for you. It is important to note that scheduling a consultation does not guarantee treatment with Spravato. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to determine if this medication is covered under your current plan.
