Ketalar Injection 50mg/Ml 10ml contains the active ingredient Ketamine Hydrochloride. which is used to put you to sleep during an operation.

Ketalar Injection 50mg/Ml 10ml:

Ketalar belongs to one of a group of medicines called anaesthetic agents, which are used to put you to sleep during an operation. Ketalar may be used in both routine and emergency surgery.

  • Ketalar is used in adults, the elderly and children. The active ingredient is ketamine hydrochloride.
  • Ketalar can be given alone or in combination with other anaesthetic agents.

Ketalar Injection 50mg/Ml 10ml :

  • The dose of Ketalar depends on its use and varies from person to person. When injected directly into a vein at a dose of 2 mg for every kg of your bodyweight, Ketalar produces unconsciousness within 30 seconds and this lasts for 5 to 10 minutes. Because it works so quickly, it is important to be lying down, or supported in some other way when the drug is given.
  • When Ketalar is injected into a muscle, at a dose of 10 mg for every kg of bodyweight, it takes longer to work (3 to 4 minutes) but lasts 12 to 25 minutes.
