Ketamine Psychedelic Therapy?
« on: 08/10/2011 07:26:37 »
Good day, I am interested in trying Ketamine Psychadelic Therapy. Dr Karl Jansen researches it.

I am just reading about it now. Has anyone a particular insight or has used it?

Firstly - Ketamine is an illegal drug in the United Kingdom - although it is of the lowest class (c) it is still a criminal offence to possess or supply (other than in a doctor/patient relationship or for authorised research).  In Australia it is a Schedule 8 controlled drug (possession without authority is illegal

Secondly - Ketamine is psychologically dependence forming

Thirdly - Its main use is either as an adjuvant treatment (ie it modifies other drugs) or to combat other, more dangerous addictions (heroin, alcohol).  Most of the research is in this area.

There is a bunch of papers on Ketamine Psychadelic Therapy at Google Scholar - but they are documenting events in a controlled medical setting and drugs given for a valid medical reason, not for pleasure or self-discovery.

On second thoughts - I am locking this thread until the administrators / moderators have have had a chance to decide whether we can continue to (legally/legitimately) discuss on our boards

On third thoughts - unlocked

Are there any Sydney Australian Doctors that use this treatment?
