Ketamine is ‘magic drug’ for depression – Telegraph

Ketamine: Just say ‘neigh!’

This interesting article in the Telegraph references some medical research into this fascinating shamanic ally substance:

The drug has traditionally been used as an anaesthetic for animals and, in some cases, humans – but has also established itself as a nightclub favourite in recent years, where it is nicknamed Special K.

But studies have found it can treat depression within hours, even when years of alternative treatments have failed.

And the effects of just one dose can last up to 10 days.
