What is Ketamine?

Approved as an anesthetic by the FDA in 1970, ketamine was first used in the 1960s in Belgium, and it would eventually become a popular choice for treating injured soldiers during the Vietnam War. Because ketamine is one of the only anesthetics that does not slow breathing or heart rate, patients do not need to be on a ventilator for ketamine use.

Ketamine is often given by first responders to patients in highly agitated states, which is how the link between ketamine use and mental health symptom management first interested researchers.

The drug comes in several different forms, but the only form approved as a medication for depression is a nasal spray delivery system, esketamine. Ketamine can also be infused intravenously or taken orally as a lozenge.
