September 26: Psychedelics Beyond Serotonin: Ibogaine & Ketamine

While most psychedelics produce their effects by modulating serotonin, there are exceptions of worthy mention including ibogaine and ketamine. While vastly different in their effects, both ibogaine and ketamine appear to modulate either glutamate or opioid systems. Ibogaine is often touted for its powerful anti-addictive properties, although it carries risks of cardiotoxicity. Ketamine has built a strong evidence base in the treatment of depression, amongst other refractory conditions. The fourth installment will take a closer look at each of these ‘novel’ psychedelics.
