FIND HOPE FOR YOUR TREATMENT-RESISTANT DEPRESSION!
SPRAVATO can have a rapid antidepressant response and is added on to an antidepressant and the rest of your regimen. It is the first new mechanism of action to treat depression that has come out in over 30 years. The initial course of treatment is twice a week for four weeks then once a week for four weeks. If it continues to be successful it can be done 2 to 4 times a month for maintenance. I’m hoping that it can be effective for those of you who have not gotten an adequate response with the currently available treatment.
SPRAVATO is given through nasal inhalation and it must be given in the office. It requires 2 to 3 hours of medical monitoring before you are allowed to go home. Someone must drive you home and you cannot drive for the rest of the day. After a good nights sleep you are fine and able to return to normal activities. There are physical effects that occur during the 2 hours after the treatment is given, but resolve by the time you are discharged.
Lakes Psychiatric Center is a REMS certified treatment center. Dr. Lyons is our Spravato treatment center psychiatrist and will assess your appropriateness for Spravato, obtain the insurance approval and then she will meet you for a consultation. She will prescribe the treatment and we obtain the medication on your behalf, as you will never have it in your possession since it is a controlled and highly regulated substance. We have our Registered Nurses and their assistants who will supervise the administration and medically monitor you after the treatment is administered.
The first step is to contact us so we can gather information as listed below in the Initial Documents List is to do a benefits investigation regarding your coverage for the medication.
My clinic coordinator will respond to your inquiry and guide you through the process.
