Spravato is a nasal spray that will be administered to you in our office under observation of a healthcare professional. You will spend two hours relaxing in our beautiful and peaceful office while the medication takes effect. The course of treatment varies from person to person, but in general, you will come to our office twice a week for 4 weeks, then once a week for 4 weeks, and then as needed.
