Ketamine

Define

Ketamine was developed in the 1960’s for both medical and veterinarian purposes. It is still used on a regular basis for these purposes in the hospitals as part of anesthesia protocols and for pain relief. New therapeutic uses for ketamine have been identified in the last few years. The two main areas identified are for psychological therapies (e.g., depression and PTSD) and chronic pain (e.g., refractory pain syndromes and chronic regional pain syndromes). It is a dissociative compound/drug that works in the brain helping “reset” itself but causing an odd feeling with a sensation of separation of mind and body that can have therapeutic benefit for these psychological and pain conditions.
