Ketamine for Treatment-Resistant Depression (Research Study)

Study Published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

A group of Physicians and PhDs recognized that patients with treatment-resistant depression responded well to ketamine but wanted to do more research into the safety and tolerability of the drug. They analyzed research from studies done over a span of 6 years to determine not only how effective ketamine is but also how safe and tolerable it is for patients. Outcome: The researchers discovered that no patients had persistent psychotomimetic effects, adverse medical effects, or increased substance use and concluded that ketamine is safe and well tolerated.

The information gathered in this study will, hopefully, lead to more research on ketamine as a viable treatment not only for treatment-resistant depression but also anxiety, PTSD, and other serious mental health conditions.
