What is Medical Ketamine?

Ketamine, is sometimes used in emergency situations for its exceptional anaesthetic properties. It induces anaesthesia by initially eliminating the sensation of pain, subsequently followed by a loss of consciousness; producing a feeling of deep relaxation and relief of pain in both humans and animals.

It is approved for anaesthetic use throughout many European countries including Switzerland, Germany, and Austria, where it is available as a controlled prescription drug. In the US, Ketamine is a class III scheduled drug, while in the UK it is a class C, approved for use as an anaesthetic in hospitals.

However, due to its sedative, hallucinogenic, and dissociative effects when taken at higher doses, Ketamine has also been commonly abused as a recreational drug.

The use of Ketamine ‘off-label’ for treating depression is a controversial topic. A drug used off-label means it is used while not government-approved. Ketamine is usually tolerated, has widespread acceptance, and is entirely legal to use when written and a patient has supplied informed consent.

When carefully administered in controlled medical practice, Ketamine is entirely safe to use. Due to the low dosages required for Neustart Ketamine infusion therapy, the likelihood of developing an addiction is incredibly low.
