Expect to review your overall medical and depression treatment history in deciding with your healthcare provider whether SPRAVATO® is right for you.
What to Discuss with your Healthcare Provider
Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have a history of abusing prescription or street drugs, or a problem with alcohol
Do not take SPRAVATO® if you have a blood vessel disease (aneurysm), an abnormal connection between your blood vessels (arteriovenous malformation), a history of bleeding in the brain or if you are allergic to esketamine, ketamine or any of the ingredients in SPRAVATO®
Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have heart, brain or liver problems; if you have psychosis; or if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed. You should not take SPRAVATO® if you are pregnant.
Planning Your Treatment with SPRAVATO®
SPRAVATO® can only be administered under the supervision of a healthcare provider at a certified SPRAVATO® treatment center. Desert Bolt Behavioral is a REMS certified SPRAVATO treatment center. This could be a different location than your regular doctor’s office. Your healthcare provider will continue to be involved with your care during SPRAVATO® treatment and will be available to answer questions or address concerns as you undergo treatment.
If you are a new patient at Desert Bolt Behavioral, your first visit will be a consultation. The treatment center will:
receive your medical information from your healthcare provider
conduct its own assessment to determine if SPRAVATO® may be right for you
verify your insurance information as part of your eligibility confirmation
If SPRAVATO® is recommended, Desert Bolt Behavioral will build a treatment plan with you and enroll you in the SPRAVATO® REMS Program. You may start treatment on your next visit.
