Ketalar Injection 100mg/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 Injection 100mg/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.
Ketalar Injection 100mg/Ml 10ml:

if you have ever had a reaction to Ketalar or to any of the other ingredients of the medicine

if you have severe heart disease
if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant or breastfeeding. However, Ketalar may

Effects on your heart and circulation: Ketalar may temporarily raise blood pressure and increase pulse rate. It may also lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate or cause changes in the heart’s rhythm.
Effects on your stomach and intestines: After an operation you may have nausea, vomiting or loss of appetite. This is usually mild and short-lived and you will be able to drink liquids soon after the operation.
Effects on your respiratory system: Ketalar may slow your breathing and/or affect the reflexes which keep your airways clear.
Effects on eyes and vision: Some people get double of vision, unusual eye movements (nystagmus) or slightly raised pressure in their eyes.
If you experience any of the above side effects or any other unusual effects not mentioned tell your doctor at once.
