This drug has been used in the treatment of severe substance abuse problems. Recently, researchers tried to modify the substance so that it can be used as a psychiatric drug. They used it to treat major depression. They found out that it was very effective in treating depression.
Researchers say that they have been successful in treating depression using ibogaine treatment. They believe that this can be used as an alternative to anti-depressant Ibogaine treatment medications because it is much safer. The chemical is also known as iboga. It is extracted from the root bark of Tabernanthe iboga plant.
The scientists say that the benefits of the drug come from the ibogaine. They were able to treat the patient with the help of low doses of ibogaine and traditional therapy. However, they have not studied the long-term effectiveness of this treatment. It is not clear whether the results are permanent or if they last longer than the initial period.
