Elon Musk suggests his prescription ketamine use is good for investors

In a new interview, Elon Musk said that prescription ketamine has been helpful in treating his occasional depressive episodes and suggested that taking the drug has been beneficial to his companies’ investors.

Musk, speaking with former CNN anchor Don Lemon in an interview published online Monday, said he takes a small amount once every two weeks sometimes less frequently to treat what he described as to chemical tides that can cause your depression.

Ketamine is useful for getting one out of a negative mood, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO told Lemon.

Lemon asked Musk if ketamine could interfere with his government contracts and standing on Wall Street. Musk said no echo language has used in the past to explain his drug use.

From Wall Street’s point of view, what matters is execution, the tech mogul said. Are you creating value for investors? He then went on to promote the valuation and sales of Teslas. From an investor’s point of view, he said, if there’s something I’m taking, I should continue to take it.

Musk added that he initially mentioned his use of prescription ketamine to X because I thought maybe this could help other people.

Video of the exchange was released five days after Lemon announced that Musk had canceled his deal for a new talk show on X just hours after a difficult interview at Tesla’s headquarters in Austin, Texas .

Xs’ verified corporate account confirmed that the company had decided not to enter into a commercial partnership with Lemons show, but that the former CNN host was still welcome to post his content on the social media service.

Lemon was fired from CNN last April. X said in January it had struck a deal with him as part of what the company billed as a push to expand video offerings. The platform also teamed up with former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, and sports talk radio host Jim Rome.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the use of ketamine in muskrats. In an article on the subject, the newspaper reported that some Tesla and SpaceX executives were concerned about the billionaire tycoons’ drug use.

Lemon asked Musk if he ever abused ketamine, which the billionaire said he is taking under a doctor’s supervision. Musk replied: I don’t think so. If you use too much ketamine, you can’t really do work, and I have a lot of work.

Musk’s comments about ketamine are notable, in part, because he has previously slandered other drugs used to treat depression.

In an April 2022 tweet, for example, Musk said he believes the prescription antidepressant Wellbutrin should be pulled from the market. In response to this publication, health professionals defended the effectiveness and safety of the drugs.

In recent years, ketamine, a powerful anesthetic, has gained more attention as a potential treatment for people seeking alternative therapies for depression, anxiety and other conditions.

The drug was recently linked to the death of Friends actor Matthew Perry, who died from the acute effects of ketamine, according to an autopsy report.

In a brief introduction to Musk’s interview, Lemon said he didn’t know exactly why Musk had decided to scrap his deal. I challenge you, Elon, to watch the entire interview and explain to the world why this is not what you say you want at X, Lemon said, alluding to Musks stated desire to turn X into an arena for Freedom of expression.

Lemon also released the first episode of The Don Lemon Show on YouTube and said he plans to release future installments on platforms like Spotify, iHeartRadio and just about anywhere you stream content.

In a post on X last week, Musk said Lemon lacked authenticity and that his approach was basically just CNN, but on social media.

Musk’s interview with Lemon was controversial at times. Musk stood up when Lemon first brought up ketamine, saying, “It’s pretty private to ask someone about a prescription.”

The interview touched on other hot topics, including Musk’s recent meeting with former President Donald Trump and the proliferation of hate speech on X, which Musk acquired in October 2022 when the platform was still known as Twitter.

In a follow-up interview with NBC News’ Chloe Melas, Lemon described Musk’s demeanor during the interview as somewhat cold, adding that he seemed to get more and more uncomfortable as it went on.

He said The Don Lemon Show would air three days a week and tackle anything in the zeitgeist. He and his team are looking for new media partners, but he did not provide details about those talks.

He added that he hopes X will live up to his end of the bargain. But if the company doesn’t, he said, then of course legal action will have to be taken, but I’m still not sure I was at that point.
