Am I addicted to ketamine 1


Depending on the form and amount of ingestion, the effect of ketamine sets in at different speeds and levels of intensity. A dangerous unconsciousness can set in immediately with the effect, which lasts for about a quarter of an hour. Hypothermia or dehydration of the eyes can be some of the dangerous consequences.

The substance can cause strong hallucinations. Users report a feeling of leaving their own body or of dying. In addition to this changed body experience, it can also lead to a loss of taste and smell. "Horror trips" with pronounced feelings of fear, panic attacks or visions of horror occur more frequently than with LSD or psychoactive mushrooms.

As an anesthetic, ketamine also relieves pain. Because of this, there is a risk of unnoticed bodily harm. Other physical effects include:

  • Increase in blood pressure and heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Signs of paralysis
  • Seizures
  • coma

If the dangerous drug is taken together with other substances that affect the respiratory center, such as heroin or alcohol, there is a risk of life-threatening respiratory paralysis.

Ketamine can cause psychological and possibly physical dependence.

When ketamine is consumed frequently, the effects on memory and cognition increase. People who had consumed ketamine for a long time suffered from memory impairment and neurological disorders. Ketamine is particularly dangerous for people with heart disease or high blood pressure. You should rather avoid consuming ketamine completely.
