Special KSpecial K, or scientifically known as Ketamine, is an anesthetic drug used in surgical procedures on both humans and animals. Special K is used because of its affordability and its lasting high. When used as recreational, this drug produces effects similar to PCP, and a high that can last up to two hours.

Help From Your Addiction to Special K

Several common side effects that one will experience whenever he or she uses Special K as a way to get high include, but are not limited to:

  • Hallucinations
  • Out of body experiences
  • Impaired attention
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of short term learning abilities
  • Impaired motor function
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased heart rate

These effects can last anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the dose used and the individual taking the drugs.

  • Depression
  • Loss of long term memory
  • Learning impairment
  • Increased blood pressure (long term)
  • Physical health diminishes
  • Possible long term damage to his or her liver function and heart function
