The media report of the cause of actor Mathew Perry's death included a reference to ketamine as one of the drugs discovered in his post mortem, a reminder that ketamine is a potent anesthetic that should only be administered under the care of a physician - ideally, either an Emergency Medicine Doctor or an Anesthesiologist. Sadly, it appears from the media reports that he may have been self-medicating.
We advise that you do careful due diligence on any facility that you are considering for ketamine therapy, as there are ketamine clinics that are currently owned/staffed by those without sufficient medical training.
Further, any home use of ketamine should be carefully monitored by qualified professionals. We highly suggest you should avoid businesses that offer oral ketamine for home use after a cursory examination and without proper screening for cardiovascular or other risk factors.
Ketamine is a remarkable drug that we believe has the ability to reshape the landscape of psychiatry as we know it. It is a very safe drug when administered by qualified medical professionals. We encourage you to discuss with us any questions you might have on this issue.
