What Is Ketamine

Ketamine (Ketalar) is a dissociative anesthetic. Originally it was used by  veterinary medicine. Doctors, particularly anesthesiologists, use it to induce general anesthesia.  It is a trusted general anesthetic for medical procedures that do not require muscle relaxation. General anesthesia denotes a sleep-like state, while dissociative refers to the effect of feeling disconnected.The FDA has approved ketamine for general anesthesia only, but the drug has some off-label uses.

Typically Ketamine is used for broken bones while setting fractures, treating joint dislocations and often for cleaning, repairing and suturing wounds especially with children when Novocaine isn’t enough to reduce discomfort.

Most recently it is also in the treatment of seizures, depression and anxiety. It has been found to be very effective for mood disorders.

*** It is important to note that while ketamine has shown promise in the areas of behavioral health, it is not a cure-all and should only be used under the supervision of a trained medical professional. ***
