Ketamine has become the first in an emerging wave of therapeutic psychedelic substances aimed at treating depression, ptsd, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. Patients who have not received relief from other conventional medications may qualify for ketamine. Traditional pharmaceutical therapies for depression such as SSRIs and SNRIs take a few weeks to become effective. Ketamine may produce significant changes after just one dose, or within the first three doctor-supervised doses of the drug in the first week of therapy.
