In brief: Don't try it at home

Ketamine acts as an anesthetic that causes sedation and can put you to sleep .
It acts on the cortex and other brain structures. Acting through the brain it can cause depressed breathing, low blood pressure, heart rhythm problems, confusion, hallucinations, jerky muscle movements . It wipes out recent memory. If not administered by a skilled doctor it can be fatal
