Ketamine Overdose Signs, Symptoms, & Effects
Recreational Use of Ketamine
Ketamine is an injectable anesthetic drug that has seen a rise in popularity as a recreational club drug. While it is officially prescribed in a liquid injectable form, it is often sold illegally in a powder or pill form. People using ketamine recreationally can snort, smoke, inject, or dissolve the drug into liquids that are orally ingested. Ketamine does not have the reputation for deadly overdoses, like opioids or other drugs, but the short-term and long-term effects of the drug can still lead to dangerous consequences.
- Violent outbursts (due to hallucinations)
