For decades clinicians and scientists have been searching for an alternative to rapidly treat patients with TRD. This dilemma may be partly resolved for some patients. A new use for an old drug, ketamine, promises to be effective for treatment of TRD. This new role for ketamine will be explored with particular emphasis on whether it is effective, and if so, how durable its benefits are.
