What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is a generic dissociative medication that has a 50-year history of safe use as an anesthetic and analgesic agent. Recently, ketamine has shown to have great promise as an off-label treatment for Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD), PTSD, OCD, drug and alcohol addiction, other psychiatric diagnoses, as well as chronic pain conditions. The doses used for these therapies are a fraction (10-30%) of the doses used in anesthesia procedures.
