The exact way Spravato (Esketamine) works to treat mood disorders has not been fully determined, although it is believed to work by changing the activity of certain natural chemicals in the brain.

Spravato (Esketamine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms.

Spravato Dosage

The recommended adult starting dose of Spravato (Esketamine) is 56 mg given intranasally (into the nose) twice a week for 4 weeks. Depending on how you are feeling and how well the medication works, your doctor may adjust the dose. People with Japanese heritage or people over the age of 65 may require lower doses of Spravato (Esketamine). Talk to your doctor if this applies to you.

Each spray device delivers 2 sprays (one in each nostril) for a dose of 28 mg of medication. If your dose is more than 28 mg, wait 5 minutes to allow the medication to be absorbed and then repeat this process with a second device.

Spravato (Esketamine) is usually taken until 6 months after the symptoms of depression have resolved.

Before using the device, gently blow your nose. Do not prime the device before using it. This will cause medication to be discharged from the device and you will not get the full amount of medication for each dose. Tilt your head back approximately 45 degrees and place the tip of the device into one nostril. Hold the other nostril closed and gently inhale through your nose as you activate the spray. Gently sniff, to keep the medication in your nose. Breathe through your mouth. For the second spray, repeat this process with the other nostril.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Spravato (Esketamine) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Spravato (Esketamine) must be given at the doctor's office or clinic where blood pressure and mental changes can be monitored for at least 2 hours after using the medication.
