The affects of Ketamine wear off very quickly, sometimes in under an hour depending on the dosage. However, it can stay in your system for up to four days - just because you feel like you've recovered, doesn't mean your body has. As a result, you should not take Ketamine less than four days before a drugs test, as it will probably show up.

• What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is used legally in hospitals and veterinary surgeries as it works as an effective anesthetic if properly administered. It is a synthetic compound, represented as C13H16NOCI. However, it is also used illegally as a hallucinogenic drug, although it has serious risks for those who choose to take it. It is also known as a "rape drug", as rapists use Ketamine in order to sedate their victims.

• What are the risks of using Ketamine?

Ketamine temporarily disconnects the brain from the rest of the body, meaning that the brain fails to process signals such as pain sent from the body. Less serious side effects of using Ketamine include reduced perception and co-ordination, as well as a feeling of being out of control. However, more serious risks include depression, amnesia, high blood pressure, impaired motor functions and problems with breathing that can result in death.

• What does Ketamine look like?

Ketamine can appear in a number of forms. One form of Ketamine is an odorless and colorless liquid, which is usually injected into the muscle or added to a drink. Ketamine can appear as a powder, which is usually an off white color - this can be added to drinks or to substances used for smoking, or it can be snorted. The powder can also be compacted to form off white tablets.

There are a number of names for Ketamine, including special K, K, vitamin K and cat Valium. Less common names include purple, green K and honey oil.
