Ketamine produces anti-anxiety effects

Ketamine, the dissociative anesthetic with psychedelic properties,
"can reduce symptoms of treatment–resistant anxiety disorders.

Previous research had found that ketamine produced an antidepressant effect in patients with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder. The new study provides the first evidence that ketamine improves symptoms of anxiety in patients with treatment-resistant anxiety who are not currently depressed."
