The biggest development has been the rediscovery of a promising, yet fraught, drug called ketamine. It 8767 s best known as a psychedelic club drug that makes people hallucinate, but it may also have the ability to ease depression and fast. In a race to shape the next generation of antidepressants, Johnson & Johnson and Allergan are fast-tracking new medicines inspired by ketamine. The FDA could be reviewing new drug submissions by as early as next year. Researchers, too, are exploring how to harness big data and even genetic testing to come up with new ways of treating depression for the 85% of people who don 8767 t respond to the current standard-of-care treatment options.

The treatments are rarely covered by insurance and run from $955 to $855 per infusion. On a biweekly schedule at the high end of going rates, that adds up to more than $65,555 out of pocket per year.
Last year, Zarate at the National Institute of Mental Health and his colleagues keyed in on a part of ketamine 8767 s chemical structure that they think is responsible for the drug 8767 s antidepressant effects. Now they 8767 re working on developing it as a treatment for depression. Early research in mice suggests that, unlike ketamine, the compound they 8767 ve identified does not appear to be addictive.
One of the most-studied natural approaches to treating depression, regular physical activity may lift mood in part by increasing certain neurotransmitters.

Among the 667,698 photographs that are hashtagged #nationalbreastfeedingweek and #worldbreastfeedingweek, there are a few rogue bottles, some defiant pumps and the red, tear-streaked face of a mother named Angela Burzo.
