Ketamine is comparable to ECT for patients with treatment-resistant depression, study shows

At The Drake Center, we're committed to offering cutting-edge treatments that support the body, mind, and spirit. Recent research adds to the growing body of evidence for the use of ketamine in treating treatment-resistant depression.

A new study involving over 400 participants found that intravenous ketamine was "not inferior" to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), the current gold standard. Intriguingly, patients who took ketamine twice a week for three weeks had slightly better results than those who underwent ECT three times per week over the same period. Link to article:
