✦ A Bit About Ketamine ✦

Ketamine has been used globally in surgery and emergency rooms as a dissociative anesthetic since it was discovered in 1962. Recent studies have shown ketamine to significantly reduce feelings of anxiety in patients diagnosed with both generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and social anxiety disorder (SAD).

In these studies, participants were reported as having no adverse side effects to their intravenous ketamine treatment. Studies have also shown ketamine IV therapy to be particularly successful in decreasing symptoms for patients diagnosed with anxious depression.
