Although it has been regularly abused for recreational purposes, Ketamine which also goes by names such as Special K, Kit Kat, Dorothy and Vitamin K is actually an anaesthetic intended for animals. It is mostly used by youths in clubs.
Ketamine belongs to the category of schedule III drugs, the same class of the drug to which Anabolic steroids and Codeine belong.
Schedule III drugs are those whose regular usage is linked to psychological dependence more than physical dependence.

Ketamine Misuse And Effects
Ketamine decreases the sensations of the body because of its sedative function, that also produces hallucinogenic deliriums. The abrupt high of Ketamine does not typically last for longer than 60 minutes. High dosages (mostly through injections) are likely to result into a condition referred to as the "K-hole", causing the victim to suffer from what is explained as an out-of-the-body state or near-death, where they feel utterly disconnected with the reality of life.
The user feels deadened because of its high tranquilizer prosperities which cause wounds or even worse injuries.
Consumers can not control the safe dosage amount to take because of Ketamine's unstable quality. One can overdose even with a small amount, particularly when Ketamine is taken after alcohol consumption of intake of other drugs. Being a tranquilizer, a user can completely lose mobility. The most common cause of death from taking too much Ketamine is respiratory failure.
Combining Ketamine And Other Drugs
Ketamine is used with various other drugs that can enhance its worse effects and can be much more dreadful. Ketamine's liquid state can be effortlessly blended and added into liquor beverages, weed and tobacco products. Ketamine is a depressant in nature and therefore, it can be lethal when mixed with other depressants or alcohol.
Using Ketamine alongside other depressants is likely to cause a low heart rate as well as poor respiratory performance.
Ketamine can be consolidated and squeezed into a tablet or capsule form with other powdered medication like MDMA (Ecstasy). Considering that MDMA is used as a stimulant, while Ketamine is a depressant, it is risky to mix these drugs. Hallucinogenic and psychedelic drugs, such as DMT or LSD, are usually mixed with Ketamine.
