Ketamine FAQs

Teens snorting ketamine powder with rolled dollar bills on a glass counter

Ketamine is an anesthetic drug, according to the U.S. National Drug Intelligence Center, and it’s often put to use in veterinary clinics. Human users discovered that it produced hallucinogenic and calming sensations when it was taken, and in time, ketamine became a popular choice among club-going or festival-attending teens.

Just like many other illicit drugs Ketamine has adverse side effects that teens may not be aware of. At high doses, ketamine hijacks the body’s internal temperature-regulating system. That means teens taking large amounts of ketamine tend to experience:

  • Fevers
  • Jitters
  • Nausea
  • Profuse sweating
  • Rising core temperatures

These teens are in the midst of a medical crisis, but they may feel simply happy and serene. Get answers to frequently asked questions about teen ketamine use.
