The famous TV comedy star Matthew Perry, who portrayed Chandler Bing from 1994 to 2004, passed away at 54. He was discovered unresponsive in the swimming pool at his Los Angeles home in October 2023. The acute effects of ketamine are found to be the cause of Matthew Perry’s death, according to a statement released by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s office.
In his memoirs, Matthew Perry detailed how, at some moments in his fight against addiction, he had become dependent on taking ketamine every day. He claimed the ketamine helped him with his anxiety and depression. Despite having battled drug addiction & health problems for decades, he had been drug-free for 19 months before his death.
Matthew Perry – Cause of Death
According to the report, there were no suspicions of foul play, and the death was an accidental one. Dr Andrew Stolbach, a medical toxicologist with Johns Hopkins Medicine who examined the postmortem report at the request of “The Associated Press” said that the amount of ketamine found “would be enough to make him lose consciousness and lose his posture and his ability to keep himself above the water.” The official cause of death for Matthew Perry is recorded as “acute effects of ketamine,” with coronary artery disease, drowning, and the effects of buprenorphine identified as additional causes.
The postmortem report states that Perry was receiving ketamine infusion therapy; the most recent treatment was given 1 1/2 weeks before Perry’s death. Matthew Perry had high blood ketamine levels and most likely lost consciousness before going into the water.
Ketamine can produce hallucinations and a dissociative effect that makes it appear as though the mind and body are separate. It is well-known for being used in party and nightclub culture. The Federal Drug Enforcement Agency alerts people to the risk of unconsciousness and slowed breathing associated with ketamine overdoses.
