Model: American Standard Silhouette 4771.222
The faucet is about 13 years old. Whenever I turn either the hot or cold
handles, the water comes out at a lower rate than usual. However, I can
increase the rate of flow by giving the side sprayer a quick squirt and
stopping. Why would altering the water's path for a moment do this? Is the
side sprayer defective since the pressure is building up inside its line
instead of letting it go to the faucet?

Could be problems with the diverter, or the aerator.
I'd start by unscrew the aerator, and soak it in
vinegar, bang it out, look for sediment. That's the
easiest part to remove.
