Depression is a common, severe and potentially life-threatening syndrome. There are several clinical studies that suggest ketamine infusion therapy can have therapeutic effects in treatment-resistant depression.
Ketamine has been long used since 1970s as an anesthetic in surgery and in veterinary sciences. It was widely used by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War and remains a standard anesthetic in emergency rooms around the world.
However, in recent years, there has been a growing interest in the use of low-dose ketamine for the treatment of a variety of conditions including severe and treatment-resistant depression. Its rapid and robust antidepressant effect has been studied and has shown significance in decreasing the severity of depression and suicidal thoughts.
