Study shows 40% of patients treated with ketamine had depression symptoms disappear – Daily Mail

While its use as an antidepressant may be controversial among health experts and regulators, the anesthetic drug ketamine has shown great affect as an antidepressant in recent trials - potentially even curing the disease in some.

Researchers at MindPeace Clinics, a ketamine therapy clinic in Arlington, Virginia - just outside of Washington D.C., found that more than 70 percent of patients who used the drug had improvements to their mood, with 40 percent reporting no symptoms of depression after 10 routine infusions of the drug.

The study adds to growing evidence that ketamine - along with other - psychedelic drugs - could be effective treatments for mental health conditions like depression. While some clinics do use the drug off-label, which is legal but not recommended, some experts say that the relief from depression provided by ketamine is fast and short - while typical antidepressants take longer to provide relief but are more long lasting once they do.
