What is Ketamine?

A synthetic drug known as ketamine is classified as a dissociative anesthetic and is included in the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines. It was first developed in 1963, approved for use in 1970, and has since been widely adopted due to its fast-acting, safe, and short-lasting effects.

While ketamine is commonly used as an anesthetic in surgical and emergency settings due to its favorable safety profile, it has also shown promise in managing both acute and chronic pain conditions.

In recent years, ketamine has gained increasing attention for its potential in treating a variety of mental health conditions. Studies have explored its effectiveness in treating depression, substance use disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other mental health conditions.
