What is Spravato™?

Spravato™ (esketamine) is a groundbreaking prescription nasal spray designed to treat adults with treatment-resistant depression. It is the first FDA-approved medication of its kind, offering a novel approach to mental health treatment. Unlike traditional antidepressants that primarily target serotonin, Spravato™ acts on the NMDA receptor in the brain, influencing glutamate, a neurotransmitter involved in mood regulation. This distinct mechanism of action helps alleviate depressive symptoms more rapidly and effectively for those who have not found relief with conventional therapies.

Spravato™ is often used in conjunction with an oral antidepressant to enhance its efficacy. The treatment involves the patient self-administering the nasal spray under the supervision of a healthcare professional in a clinical setting. This ensures both safety and proper monitoring during the process.

The introduction of Spravato™ represents a significant advancement in the field of depression treatment, particularly for individuals who have struggled to find relief through other means. Its ability to work through a different pathway in the brain provides new hope and potential for rapid improvement in depressive symptoms.

At Cambridge Biotherapies, we are committed to offering innovative treatments like Spravato™ to help our patients achieve better mental health outcomes. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing the highest level of care and support throughout your treatment journey.

How Spravato™ Works

Spravato™ is administered under the careful supervision of our healthcare professionals at Cambridge Biotherapies treatment centers. Here’s what you can expect from the treatment process:

1. Preparation

Before starting Spravato™ therapy, patients undergo a thorough evaluation to determine eligibility and to set therapeutic goals. This involves an initial consultation where we discuss your medical history and current condition.

2. Administration

Spravato™ is a nasal spray that patients self-administer in our treatment center. The process is straightforward: patients use a nasal spray device to deliver the medication into their nostrils. Each session is supervised by our trained staff to ensure proper administration and immediate support if needed.

3. Monitoring

After administering Spravato™, patients are monitored for at least two hours. This monitoring period allows our healthcare team to ensure your safety and to observe any immediate effects of the medication. You will be in a comfortable, controlled environment designed to help you relax and experience the treatment’s full benefits.

4. Integration

Following the treatment session, we conduct follow-up appointments to assess progress and provide ongoing support. These integration sessions are crucial as they help patients process their experiences and incorporate the therapeutic benefits into their daily lives. We work closely with you to adjust treatment plans as necessary to optimize outcomes.

Spravato™ works by targeting the NMDA receptor in the brain, which affects the neurotransmitter glutamate. This action helps to rapidly reduce depressive symptoms and can provide relief within hours to days, compared to weeks or months for traditional antidepressants. By using a different mechanism of action, Spravato™ offers a new and effective option for those with treatment-resistant depression.

At Cambridge Biotherapies, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of care throughout your Spravato™ treatment journey. Our experienced team is here to support you every step of the way, ensuring a safe, effective, and compassionate treatment experience.

3. Enhanced Efficacy with Oral Antidepressants

When used in conjunction with an oral antidepressant, Spravato™ enhances overall treatment effectiveness, providing a comprehensive approach to managing depression.

4. Supervised Administration for Safety

The administration of Spravato™ in our treatment centers under the supervision of healthcare professionals ensures a safe and controlled environment. This monitoring helps manage any immediate side effects and provides patients with the support they need during the treatment process.
