Dr. Adam Prus discusses using ketamine as a treatment for depression and the challenges that arise from prescribing a psychedelic drug for treatment. A case study revealed that ketamine taken by depressed patients resulted in a substantial reduction in depression symptoms. Ketamine has been referred to as the academics' drug, meaning that it will never be used as treatment because of liability, cost, and possible negative effects.
