How New Ketamine Drug Helps with Depression
'The FDA approval of esketamine gives doctors another valuable tool in their arsenal against depression—and offers new hope for patients no one had been able to help before. “This is a game changer,” says John Krystal, MD, chief psychiatrist at Yale Medicine and one of the pioneers of ketamine research in the country.'

Why Ketamine Is the Best Drug on Earth
'It starts with how the medicine works. Ketamine's predominant action in the human brain is to block the NMDA receptor, which normally activates neurons. When this receptor is blocked, the central nervous system begins to lose responsiveness. At lower doses, ketamine produces a mild state of hypnosis, pain relief, and alters the perception of sight and sound.'
the history of ketamine and how it works
The Full Story
Ketamine was originally developed and used as an anesthetic due to its analgesic, hypnotic, and amnestic properties at higher doses. Ketamine is unique in that no other drug possesses all three of these properties, making it the only complete anesthetic. It also maintains the highest safety profile because it does not cause respiratory depression. In 1970, the FDA approved ketamine for anesthesia and at the time, its predominant use was to aid wounded soldiers on the battlefields in Vietnam. However, people began to notice the hallucinogenic properties of ketamine, causing a rise to its use as a recreational drug known as “special K”. The use of ketamine in modern medicine began to expand as researchers discovered the extensive benefits in pain management and psychiatry, most notably treatment resistant depression. The ketamine euphoria is described as a pleasant dissociative sensation, lasting a short period of time. Today, ketamine has emerged as possibly the single greatest breakthrough in antidepressant therapy.
Traditional antidepressant medications such as escitalopram, duloxetine, and bupropion, act on serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine receptors, often taking weeks or months for full therapeutic effect. Ketamine works differently as an NMDA receptor antagonist, signaling a neuronal cascade that halts the inhibitory pathways in the brain and activates the major excitatory pathways. This leads to a reversal of the effects of chronic stress and depression in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. The result is a more robust antidepressant response. Not only does ketamine work effectively against refractory depression, it also provides the most rapid response. Patients often feel immense relief after just a single, well tolerated infusion of ketamine. Additionally, ketamine has also been shown to rapidly reduce suicidal ideations. Now, there is growing evidence for ketamine’s efficacy in other psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD, and anxiety.
With the surge of interest in ketamine, research has proven its efficacy in many difficult to treat chronic pain conditions. NMDA receptor activation normally causes neuropathic pain, hyperalgesia, and opioid resistance. When ketamine antagonizes the NMDA receptor, the neural transmission of pain is blocked and the tolerance to opioids is decreased, making pain medication more effective. With prolonged use, ketamine will "reset" damaged neuronal pathways in the nervous system, allowing the body to return to a more normalized state. For these reasons, ketamine is extremely effective for treating refractory chronic pain conditions such as CRPS, RSD, fibromyalgia, and chronic back pain.
