Version 2.77


A hallucinogen formerly used as a veterinary anesthetic, and briefly as a general anesthetic for humans. Phencyclidine is similar to ketamine in structure and in many of its effects. Like ketamine, it can produce a dissociative state. It exerts its pharmacological action through inhibition of NMDA receptors (receptors, N-methyl-D-aspartate). As a drug of abuse, it is known as PCP and angel dust. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

Phencyclidine (PCP) is a widely used hallucinogen that exhibits stimulating, depressing, and analgesic properties. PCP, also known as "angel dust", causes psychosis and may result in violent behavior. PCP may be a powder, tablet, liquid, spray or capsule, and it may be swallowed, smoked, sniffed, or injected. Effects include increased heart rate and blood pressure, flushing, sweating, dizziness, numbness, drowsiness, convulsions, and coma. PCP can be found 7 days following use and up to 2-4 weeks later in chronic users. Information from Jacobs and DeMott Laboratory Test Handbook, 5th edition, DS Jacobs, WR DeMott and DK Oxley, 2001.
