Many people have heard of ketamine as an animal anesthetic or as a club drug. What most have not heard about this drug is the extensive studies about its rapid impact on depression and anxiety. The dosing of ketamine is critical. When used for treatment it is given in 1/10 to 1/20th the dose for anesthesia and is given slowly over 45 minutes rather than over 1 to 10 seconds.
Symptoms that have seen improvement, often within hours, include moodiness, decreased concentration, low self-esteem, impaired sleep, decreased sexual desire, impaired appetite, and suicidal thoughts. In fact, the recent study at Yale University showed that ketamine can re-establish interrupted nerve connections that are necessary to process and overcome traumatic memories.
