Rat study shows how ketamine combats depression
from Psych Central
Two out of three participants in clinical studies with previously untreatable depression experience a fast and long-lasting end to their depressive symptoms after receiving ketamine intravenously. The effects of ketamine generally last about a week — much longer than would be expected with ketamine's six-hour half-life in the body. But the exact mechanism behind ketamine’s success has remained unclear.
