Ketamine therapy produces a sense of calm, peace, and joy, and patients may also feel their senses are heightened during the treatment. Patients may experience a response that can be described as increased calmness, elevated mood, and decreased thoughts of suicide. Some experience a drug-induced euphoria and sustained antidepressant effect in patients with treatment-resistant depression. A series of treatments have been shown to dramatically improve the length of response to treatment.
