Physician’s Weekly continued its #PWChat series on Thursday, Nov. 16, with Steven P. Levine, MD, on the use of ketamine to treat depression.

The discussion focused on why there is a need for alternatives to antidepressants, like ketamine, for treating depression, how ketamine, a psychedelic club drug, ever became even a possibility for the treatment of depression, what makes ketamine a promising alternative to antidepressants and other standard depression care, and much more.
