Drug trials for depression

Postby Ice.Maiden » 02 Apr 2014, 20:02

The UK's just completed its first trials in using ketamine as a cure for depression. The findings appear to be "exciting", after patients with a history of depression reported feeling "as I used to" after as little as 6 hours of treatment. It seems incredible that a drug which's used as an anaesthetic on humans and animals could have the opposite effect and act as a mood stabilizer, but as with amphetamines, it acts on the levels of dopamine in the brain as well. Interesting.
