[Correspondence] Ketamine—the real perspective

We would like to highlight the medicinal value of ketamine. In November, 2015, WHO’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) reviewed ketamine among drugs “with potential for dependence, abuse and harm to health”, to make recommendations to the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) on the need for their international control. The ECDD recommended unequivocally that ketamine should not be placed under international control as they concluded that ketamine abuse does not pose a global public health threat and that such control would limit access for those who most need it as a life-saving anaesthetic.
