Quotable Quote

Chief Psychiatrist Dr. John Krystal of Yale Medicine explains that with most medications like Valium, the antianxiety effect lasts only when the medication is in your system, and when the effect wears off, you can get rebound
anxiety. With Ketamine, it triggers reactions in your Cortex that enable brain connections to regrow. It is this reaction to Ketamine, not the presence of Ketamine in the body that constitutes its effects.
