SPRAVATO™ is taken twice a week for the first four weeks
After the first four weeks, SPRAVATO™ is taken once a week for a month

What should I tell my doctor before taking Spravato?
Before you take SPRAVATO™, talk to your doctor about your full medical and depression treatment history, including if you have a history of abusing prescription or street drugs or a problem with alcohol.
What are the side effects?
Ketamine is given in small doses for the treatment of depression. As such, a typical side effect is mild sedation. Some patients complain of mild nausea, which is easily treated with anti-anxiety medication. Some patients have mild elevations or reductions in blood pressure.
Is Spravato addictive?
No, administered at small doses in a medical setting, there is no evidence that Spravato is addictive. In contrast, those who abuse ketamine recreationally do so at very high doses to induce psycho-active affects.
