Ketamine which has street names of Vitamin K, Special K, Cat Valium, Kit Kat, or Dorothy is an anaesthetic abused by people for recreational purposes. Young persons are principal consumers in the nightlife culture.
Just like Anabolic steroids and Codeine, Ketamine is a Schedule three controlled substance and is usually sold with the brand name Ketalar.
Psychological dependence is very common with this kind of controlled substance although physical dependence may also occur.

Using Ketamine without a doctor's prescription is illegal.
Ketamine comes in three forms: a pill, a liquid to inject, or an off-white powder to snort. It is notorious for its use as a predator drug as it has no smell or colour, is impossible to notice it in a beverage, and temporarily disables a person.
Effects Of Abusing Ketamine
Ketamine creates a feeling of total relaxation because its a dissociative hallucinogenic tranquilizer which causes a full body buzz. The abrupt high of Ketamine does not typically last for longer than 60 minutes. The "K-Hole" effect is a strong aftermath that makes consumers feel completely disconnected from the real world and is only reached by users who directly inject large doses of Ketamine.
The user feels deadened because of its high tranquilizer prosperities which cause wounds or even worse injuries.
It is not easily determined by the user to measure what amount is excessive because of its eccentric nature. At times, Ketamine overdose can occur after one has taken a small quantity, especially if they have been indulging in other substances or drinking alcohol.

Other psychedelics including DMT and LSD are some of the drugs that are normally used alongside Ketamine.
