Ketamine adverse effects

Posted on Sep 8, 2016 in Doctor X files, Pattern of use

  I would like to know more about the adverse effects of ketamine.  How much is too much?  How often is too often?   Ketamine should not be used combinated with other depressants (alcohol, GHB, benzos…). Changes in body perception and anaesthetic effect can lead to problems when someone is under its effects. If you get burn (by a cigarrette, for example) or suffer some wound under K effects it is possible that you don´t notice it. Loss of motor coordination is a common adverse effect depending on dosage. There has been some concern about ketamine and neurotoxicity but there...

It is possible that a simple urine test could...

The effect is fast and strong but not lasting in time, it disappears in hours or days and further dosages do not reply this effect.

K can be useful in some clinical...

Ketamine or Methoxetamine

Posted on Ago 25, 2016 in Doctor X files, Pattern of use

  I am thinking about trying dissociatives…what should be the safest option…PCP, ketamine or methoxetamine?   Ketamine is a well known drug, widely used in therapy during 50 years. Recreative use of ketamine has, more or less, 15-20 years. In the last 5 years there have been a lot of scientific reports talking about bladder and urinary problems in ketamine users. It was an unknown problem until 2005 (more or less), and has been detected after 15-20 years of recreative, intranasal use. In general, it only affects to intensive users. Ketamine dependence is another problem...
