As of this writing (August 7, 2006), a study of 18 patients with depression was conducted using ketamine - a glutamate blocker that targets the NMDA receptors.  This treatment helped over 70% of those patients within one day of treatment  - giving hope to many patients and physicians that depression sufferers need no longer wait several weeks for conventional anti-depressants that work on dopamine and seratonin.

Ketamine is usually used as a form of anesthesia for both humans and animals.  If this glutamate blocker stops pain so well - is it a leap to imagine that MSG, (which raises blood levels of free glutamate and stimulates the NMDA receptors that Ketamine blocks) may actually cause the pain on fibromyalgia?
