Ketamine

Ketamine is an FDA approved anesthetic drug that has been

used in hospitals worldwide since the 1960s.  In the last few

years numerous articles in medical journals have shown

efficacy in using ketamine in sub-anesthetic doses to treat

depression and some chronic pain syndromes.

 

The current hypothesis is that Ketamine works by blocking

the NMDA receptor which increases the levels of

Glutamate. Glutamate is the major excitatory

neurotransmitter in the nervous system. This increase will

activate the AMPA receptor increasing the release of BDNF

(Brain-derived neurotrophic factor). This factor is

responsible for repair of damaged neurons with regrowth
of important dendrites and synapses needed to achieve a

normal mood.
