Risks and Side Effects of Ketamine

Street ketamine naturally originates from legitimate pharmaceutical sources that have been illicitly sidetracked onto the black market. This means that the problems of purity and chemical content, usually associated with street drugs, are absent. However, this does not mean that ketamine is a ’safe’ drug.The dissociative actions of ketamine mean that it is often considered to be a ‘date rape drug’. A date rape drug is one that is slipped into a persons drink. When the drink is consumed, the person is rendered unconscious and is at great risk of attack.

Dangers of recreational ketamine use include;

Increased heart-rate, depressed consciousness and breathing, Can lead to oxygen starvation to the muscles and brain, Vomiting, Temporary paralysis, Coma and eventually death.

Ketamine is also known to be psychologically addictive; it is not uncommon to find users taking it daily.

Other ketamine problems:

Ketamine is often obtained in the commercial form Ketalar. This contains a preservative, benzethonium chloride, which is itself a potentially psychoactive ingredient.

Most brands of ketamine contain the same proportions of S(+) and R(-) stereoisomers (racemic ketamine), however, at least one brand has been found to contain only the S(+)stereoisomer. In line with researchers, S (+) ketamine is more likely to restrain breathing and induce a faster loss of consciousness than R (-) ketamine.
