People are all waiting for a vaccine to be able to eradicate the crisis triggered by the novel coronavirus. While we all know that Pfizer is on the right track at the moment, more treatments are still analyzed to treat the symptomatology until a vaccine is released.
Ketamine, a potential treatment for Covid-19
It’s been just reported by Ketamine Institute that ketamine may have a new role in combating the cytokine storm that’s associated with severe Covid-19 infections.
Ketamine is a safe and effective anaesthetic medication that’s been developed in the ’60s, and it’s popular for the ability to rapidly improve symptoms of depression, PTSD and anxiety.
Now, the drug might find its way to the front line of the global fight against the novel coronavirus.
Besides the ability to treat mood disorders and chronic pain as well, ketamine has been known to have the ability to reduce inflammation, and it’s been used in the ’90s to treat critically ill patients who were suffering from the near-fatal rabies virus.
It’s been just revealed that experts from the Beaumont Healthcare System use it in combination with Naltrexone in order to help patients with Covid-19 infections.
