Ketamine hydrochloride is a powerful anesthetic designed for use during operations and medical procedures that can leave a user unconscious and vulnerable.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
Ketamine produces a range of effects, from intoxication to delirium, distorting perceptions of sight and sounds and producing a feeling of detachment from the environment and self. Ketamine can impair attention, make a user unable to move and feel pain, cause hallucinations and even amnesia. When combined with simple activities like driving, this drug can become deadly.
Using ketamine can cause profound physical and mental problems, including impaired learning ability and memory, high blood pressure, amnesia and potentially fatal respiratory problems.
