Good Chance: Ketamine is currently being studied in clinical trials, and there have been some promising results. The clinical approval process takes quite a bit of time, and ketamine will be looked closely to try to be as clear as possible regarding possible risks.

NO!!: Ketamine is an anesthetic. It is definitely never to be used to treat depression!
