Ketamine Pills is a short-acting anesthetic because of its ability to separate perception from sensation.
Ketamine is occasionally administered to people but, vets use it more commonly for pet surgery.
Street K is most often diverted in liquid form from vets’ offices or medical suppliers’ ketamine pills.
It also has hallucinogenic and painkilling qualities that seem to affect people in unique ways.
We chemically related ketamine to PCP (‘Angel Dust’).
Ketamine Pills as “Special K” or “K” has become a staple at ‘rave’ parties.
It produces a dose-related progression of effects from a state of dreamy intoxication.
And of delirium accompanied by the inability to move, feel pain, or remember what has occurred while under the drug’s influence of ketamine pills.
How is Ketamine Used?
Special K is prepared by evaporating the liquid from the legitimate pharmaceutical injectable product and grinding the residue into a powder.
We have reported drying of the liquid to be accomplished by placing the liquid on warming trays, pancake griddles, or cast-iron skillets placed on low heat.
More recent reports describe the use of microwaves to achieve a fast boiling-off of the liquid to dry crystals.
There has been no reported clandestine manufacture of ketamine (which would be an arduous process).
They have diverted all the ketamine encountered by law enforcement to date licit sources, burglaries of veterinary clinics being the most frequently reported source.
Special-K is usually snorted or swallowed as a powder or injected as a liquid intramuscularly.
Sometimes, it is put on tobacco or marijuana and smoked.
In the past, other drugs were not usually mixed with ketamine.
Now, however, MDMA, amphetamine, methamphetamine, cocaine, carisoprodol, and flunitrazepam have been encountered.
Receiving Ketamine Pills
Ketamine comes in handy and in several forms.
The only one that the FDA has approved as a medication for depression is a nasal spray called esketamine (Spravato). It’s for adults who either haven’t been helped by antidepressant pills, have a major depressive disorder, or are suicidal.
They continue on their antidepressant and receive esketamine at a doctor’s office or in a clinic, where a health care provider watches over them for 2 hours after the dose.
For treatment-resistant depression, patients usually get the nasal spray twice a week for 1 to 4 weeks; then once a week for weeks 5 to 9; and then once every week or 2 after that.
