Ketamax 50mg is an anesthetic medication. Ketamax is used to put you to sleep for surgery and to prevent pain and discomfort during certain medical tests or procedures.
How is Ketamax given?
Ketamax is injected into a muscle, or into a vein through an IV. You will receive this injection in a clinic or hospital setting. Your breathing, blood pressure, heart function, and other vital signs will be watched closely while you are receiving Ketamax. You may feel strange or slightly confused when you first come out of anesthesia. Tell your caregivers if these feelings are severe or unpleasant. You may be shown how to use injections at home. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not fully understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles, IV tubing, and other items used to inject the medicine. Use a disposable needle only once. Throw away used needles in a puncture-proof container. Keep this container out of the reach of children and pets. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.
What should I avoid after receiving Ketamax?
This medicine may impair your thinking or reactions. You will probably not be allowed to drive yourself home after your surgery or medical procedure. Avoid driving or operating machinery for at least 24 hours after you have received Ketamax. Follow your doctor’s instructions about any restrictions on food, beverages, or activity after you recover from anesthesia.
