Even if ketamine proves not to be an effective long-term antidepressant, it could prove very useful for getting people through crises while waiting for a long-term antidepressant to kick in. How much pain could be avoided, and how many lives saved, with something that could turn depression around overnight. Even if its effectiveness petered out after a few weeks, that could be exactly the time needed to get the effect out of a standard med.
