Scientists may have found a new miracle cure for depression with the sedative ketamine.
As we reported recently, scientists may have stumbled upon a new miracle drug for depression and suicidal thoughts. But not many people are aware just how major a discovery it is and how significant the benefits were.
Using the sedative ketamine, scientists were able to successfully treat clinically depressed individuals. And the treatment was successful in a matter of hours instead of weeks like most antidepressants.
The study involved 80 people, which were split into two groups. One group got ketamine, while the other got a different sedative, and the difference between the two was massive, surprise scientists. The findings could totally change how depression is treated in the future, as well as how we understand how the illness works.
