Psilo Talk 2:  Tell me About Ketamine
Speaker: Diane Hendel
It's in The Post; it's on CNN. It's legal! There's legitimate research supporting the use of ketamine for depression. How does it work? What makes therapeutic ketamine a good choice? What's the difference between IV/IM/oral ketamine? What are treatment options? What about the companies that will ship it to my door? 
Most importantly, will my depression resolve? And what's the talk about ketamine as a true psychedelic?
Ask your questions; we have the answers (or we'll get them for you). We'll also brainstorm together about new topics to discuss in this new Saturday time.
