Ketamine is a dissociative anaesthetic that is used by doctors and vets. Ketamine slows down your brain and body functions and can also cause perceptual changes. It can make you feel relaxed, euphoric and give you an ‘out of body’ experience, known as ‘dissociating’. Ketamine can also make you feel groggy, confused, and numb.
Taking too much ketamine can make you unable to move your body or speak, this is called a ‘K-hole’. Ketamine rarely causes overdoses by itself, but can be dangerous when mixed with depressant drugs, including alcohol.
Recently, a novel substance called fluorexetamine is being sold as ketamine across the country. Doses of fluorexetamine are lower than ketamine and it can produce different effects.
If you are using ketamine, test it first with reagents or at a drug checking clinic.
