Ketamine May Ease Depression By Acting Like an Opioid, Study Suggests
Ketamine, once known primarily as a club drug, has in recent years gained legitimacy among some scientific experts as potential therapy for hard-to-treat depression.

But new research points to what could be a major drawback of the drug. It seems to behave like an opioid in the brain, which experts worry...
