Over the years, there’s been a great number of studies done on ketamine. The earliest studies done on ketamine just measured the depression relief experienced by patients. Later studies were able to look at more narrowly-defined conditions and mood disorders, like bipolar, PTSD, or social anxiety. Studies have shown that ketamine can treat specific symptoms like suicidality and negative thought patterns. One way researchers were able to this was by looking at the effect of multiple infusions, and other methods of administering ketamine. Also, there have been ketamine studies that focus just on adolescents, patients who suffer from addiction and many other variations of psychiatric and neurological problems.
