    •  THE crucial issue, from article linked above: (3+ / 0-)
      Efforts to develop drugs that replicate the effects of ketamine have produced some promising results, but they do not act as quickly as ketamine. Researchers are investigating alternatives they hope can duplicate the efficacy and rapid response of ketamine.
      Those "alternatives" will, of course, be new and patentable -- and thus worth billion$. Until then, the "drug-resistant"chronically depressed are welcome to suffer needlessly...
