Single-Dose ketamine followed by daily D-Cycloserine in treatment-resistant bipolar depression

Share This Post

Abstract

Bipolar depression is a leading cause of disability in the United States. Recently, N-methyl-D-asparate glutamate-receptor (NMDAR) antagonists, such as ketamine, have been shown to induce remission in bipolar depression. Nevertheless, ketamine use is limited by transient effects and psychogenic potential during repeated administration.
