While it’s not available in North America for sale or prescription, Rohypnol is legally prescribed in over 60 other countries and is widely available in Mexico, Colombia, and Europe where it is used for the treatment of insomnia and as a pre-anesthetic. Christian Florida rehabilitation can help reverse this dangerous trend.
Effects on the Body
Rohypnol acts as a sedative, slowing motor skills, and its effects include amnesia, muscle relaxation, and respiratory depression. It is 10 times more potent than diazepam (Valium). Since Rohypnol is a central nervous system depressant, combining it with alcohol intensifies these effects. The overdose risk of Rohypnol is high and becomes even higher when other mixed with alcohol. One of the most dangerous aspects of this drug is the ability to also induce amnesia, making it effective for predatory criminals.
Here are some precautions you can take to protect yourself: Don’t accept open drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) from someone you don’t know or trust. Take your drink directly from the bartender. Don’t take your eyes off them or your drink. Don’t let the server or someone else go to the bar for you. Never leave your drink unattended. If they seem intoxicated or drowsy, get away from the situation or find and also tell a friend.
