Possible though unlikely. Ketamine is not one of the substances tested for in drug tests.
Ketamine is not a tranquillizer. Ketamine is used in hospitals all around the world "for the induction and maintenance of anesthesia". All anesthetics are very powerful and potentially dangerous drugs, and using them recreationally is deemed to be a highly dangerous practice.
The majority of drug tests are urine tests. There are two types.
Standard urine tests
cannabinoids (cannabis, marijuana, hash) A marijuana drug test specifically looks for the level of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) in your body.
amphetamines (amphetamines, methamphetamine)
cocaine (cocaine hydrochloride,
opiates (heroin, opium, morphine,
Advanced urine tests
benzodiazepines (valium, rohypnol)
can detect most drugs
up to 90 days after use.
are rare and expensive,
and usually only done in criminal investigations
Also mouth swabs and saliva
samples can be analyzed for drug use but these are less effective
Sweetlemon, I did not thumbs you down.
Ketamine (Ketalar) is a powerful anesthetic. It's used for producing anesthesia (lack of sensation or feeling) before surgery or other procedures. It's usually administered by injection in a hospital setting or doctors office. It is a controlled substance and is not normally prescribed as a take home medication. As far as what drug classification it would fall under, l would assume hallucinagenics.
Hi, I'm pretty sure ketamine shows up as a major sedative! Are you aware that this drug is a horse tranquilizer? At least my horses have gotten it before, I don't know if it is even used on humans.
best o' luck to you,
