Brief Summary: Depression and suicide are two leading mental health and public health issues in Taiwan. However, until now, the optimal treatment for refractory depression and suicide is still lacking. Previous USA studies suggested a low dose NMDA antagonist Ketamine infusion can significantly reduce depression and suicide. In our study, we firstly investigate the anti-suicide and anti-depressive effects of ketamine in Taiwan. If we can find the similar antidepressant and anti-suicide of ketamine in Taiwanese, this result will have a great influence in the current suicide and depression prevention programs.

Conditions:
  • Major Depressive Disorder
