Signs of Ketamine Abuse.

Ketamine, also known as Special K, is a veterinary tranquilizer. It was also used as an anesthetic during the Vietnam War. It comes in liquid form, clear to light amber in color, for vet use and can be dried in an oven and the residue powdered and then snorted.
It can also be injected, smoked or ingested.
As this is an anesthetic, the user has a higher than normal pain threshold.
Its effects are similar to PCP but less violent.
There is a rapid start and the effects last 30 minutes to two hours depending on the dose.

Symptoms of abuse are:

  • Raised pulse and blood pressure
  • Elevated body temperature
  • Pupils are normal
  • Hallucinations- often vivid.
  • Pain blocked
  • Seizures
  • Vomiting
  • Delirium
  • Violent or bizarre behavior
  • Confusion/disorientation
  • Slurred speech
  • Blurred vision

Special Dangers

  • Flashbacks and visual disturbances are common, even weeks later.
  • Users may become catatonic, known as the K-Hole.
