I just came across this article online about a horse tranquilizer that researchers at Yale have discovered works as an effective anti-depressant. it's called Ketamine and is a party drug a.k.a. "special K". the study indicates it works rapidly and lasts 7-10 days, although it can cause short term psychosis. hmmm. here's the link to the article: Study touts horse tranquilizer Ketamine as ‘magic’ anti-depressant | Raw Story i have not experienced clinical depression but i know countless people who have and i know their frustration of doctors who just push pills on them and they might or might not work and they are still depressed. it would be really awesome if there could be a breakthrough to treat depression. without clinical trials and FDA approval, i suppose this is little more than a hopeful possibility at this point. i thought it was itneresting enough to share.
