WHAT IS KETAMINE
what is ketamine ?
Ketamine is a general anesthetic that has been used in human and veterinary medicine for over 50 years. Ketamine blocks pain, causes amnesia, and reduces the need to breathe by depressing the central nervous system. It’s also known as “Special K” or ‘K’ because of its ability to cause hallucinations at high doses. The drug can be injected, snorted or swallowed as a pill and it may be abused by those who want to experience these effects recreationally. When ketamine is taken with other drugs like alcohol, cocaine or amphetamines it can increase their effects which could lead to serious health problems such as coma and death. Users should avoid taking this drug without first consulting a doctor about any preexisting medical conditions
Ketamine is a drug that can be used in medicine and veterinary practices. Ketamine was originally synthesized in the early 1960s by Calvin Stevens and its use has been documented since 1970. Ketamine, known by many street names such as “special K,” has become an illegal substance due to its high potential for abuse.
It is often used illegally at night clubs or raves because of the dissociative effects it produces, which alters both body perception and thoughts. It’s also sometimes called a date rape drug because it renders victims unable to resist sexual assault when they are under the influence of ketamine.
Ketamine is a powerful anesthetic that has been used to treat chronic pain, as well as for those who are suffering from depression. It is the second most commonly abused drug in America and a Schedule III controlled substance. Its effects typically last about an hour, so it can be difficult to know when someone needs help if they have taken too much of the drug. Thankfully there are several signs you can look out for if you suspect someone has overdosed on it: slurred speech, impaired motor function, drowsiness or confusion, increased blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, nausea and vomiting – any one of these could mean that their life depends on getting help quickly! If you think that the person might have.
