Descriptions

LP15032-3   Ketamine
Ketamine is a general dissociative anaesthetic for human and veterinary use. Its hydrochloride salt is sold as Ketanest ®, Ketaset ®, and Ketalar ®. Pharmacologically it is very similar to other dissociative anesthetics such as tiletamine and phencyclidine (PCP). As with many other pharmaceuticals, ketamine is used extramedically as a recreational drug. Ketamine is a chiral compound, with two distinct enantiomers. Most pharmaceutical ketamine preparations are racemic, however reportedly some brands have (mostly undocumented) differences in enantiomeric proportions.
