Psychiatric Medication Management
Nurses Diversified Systems (ND Systems) provides psychiatric medication management evaluation and assessment. But what does that really mean? That can sound like a scary, and intimidating thing especially if you have not taken any psychiatric medications before, had bad experiences in the past with medications/treatment, or if you are not sure if medications are the best option for your symptoms.
There can be a lot of unknowns! But understanding how a psychiatric nurse practitioner can help you, learning what the phrase “medication management” means and knowing what to expect with your psychiatric assessment visit may reduce any concerns. Understanding this can be one of the most important steps to help get treatment for mental health symptoms.
SPRAVATO Treatment Center
ND Systems is a certified SPRAVATO Treatment Center that can administer SPRAVATO nasal spray to improve the symptoms of depression in those who have treatment-resistant depression (TRD) in adults at our Fairbanks and Kenai locations.
The safety and benefits of SPRAVATO® nasal spray, taken with an oral antidepressant, were studied in a clinical program involving short- and long-term trials across more than 1,700 adult patients with treatment-resistant depression that compared SPRAVATO® plus an oral antidepressant to a placebo nasal spray plus an oral antidepressant. These studies evaluated the efficacy and safety of SPRAVATO®, both short-term and long-term for up to one year, for treatment-resistant depression.
SPRAVATO® (esketamine) nasal spray CIII is available only through a restricted distribution program called the SPRAVATO® REMS because of the risks of serious adverse outcomes resulting from sedation and dissociation caused by SPRAVATO administration, and abuse and misuse of SPRAVATO. SPRAVATO® is intended for use only in a certified Healthcare Setting such as ours.
We will answer all your questions and address all your concerns concerning all psychiatric medication and its management. There are various treatments available that do not require any medication at all. We will provide a psychiatric medication management program specially designed for you. Our office to visit for a Spravato consultation is located in Fairbanks and Kenai Alaska.
