Ketamine is fast-acting medication created in the 1960’s with several applications. It is currently being used as a treatment option for those suffering from treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Those who suffer from depression have a lower amount of BDNF factor, a protein related to depression, in their brain. Ketamine increases the synthesis of this protein, producing higher levels and more consistent levels in the brain. Ketamine also improves the functioning of one’s neuronal network, making it more effective and efficient. This correlates to improved mood, energy, motivation, concentration, along with lower anxiety.
