A decade ago, Yale scientists noticed that small amounts of ketamine improved chronic depression that proved resistant to other treatments. Since then, scientists have been trying to explain why. Understanding how ketamine affects the brain could lead to the development of anti-depression drugs that help millions, including fibromyalgia patents who suffer from depression and can’t find a way to treat it.
But large doses of ketamine prove dangerous and can cause dangerous problems like psychosis, which is how it received its reputation as a party drug nicknamed “Special K”. Preventing such misuse is vital.
