ketamine addiction? does it leave you in a state of mind, where you don't even know where you are sometimes, and what kind of high do you feel from IV use addiction?
Yes. It can cause hallucinations, particularly at larger doses. I just watched a program last night on Ketamine addiction. It was described primarily originally as a horse tranquilizer/anesthetic, but without the effects of sedation on the CNS & respiratory system, as other anesthetic analgesics that can have depressed effects on those systems. A young man in Canada was shown administering several IV's in a row to reach the "K" spot, or something of that nature. I was very surprised to hear them say that when he reaches this state, he will lose all knowledge of his human condition or state of mind; rather, he will not even know what a human is?! It can cause dissociative amnesia.
There are quite a few current research trials going on for its low dose use, as well, in humans as both an analgesic for neuropathic pain & cancer, and as an anesthetic; also for other uses in combination with opioids or sedatives because of its unique characteristics as both an analgesic & an anesthetic. Its sometimes used as a last choice medication for the depression of a bipolar patient.
Dear Jap, Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that is only one molecule different from LSD. It can cause bad hallucinations. This is not a drug that anyone should mess around with. It also stimulates the cardiovascular system... I hope that you or anyone you k ow stays AWAY from it...
