Rohypnol what is it?

Rohypnol is the brand name of flunitrazepam. Abuse of two similar drugs appears to have replaced Rohypnol abuse in many parts of the United States. These are clonazepam (Klonopin) and alprazolam (Xanax). Rohypnol how do you know if you’ve been drugged? The best way is to learn the side effects of Rohypnol and how it would make you feel. The effects of Rohypnol can be felt within 30 minutes of being drugged and can last for several hours. If you are drugged, you might feel and act like someone who is drunk. You might have trouble standing and your speech might be slurred. You can even pass out. Rohypnol can cause some of the following problems:

* Muscle relaxation or loss of muscle control

* Difficulty with motor movements

* Drunk feeling

* Problems talking

* Nausea

* Can't remember what happened while drugged

* Loss of consciousness (black out)

* Confusion

* Problems seeing

* Dizziness

* Sleepiness

* Lower blood pressure

* Stomach problems

* Death

Preventing someone from slipping you Rohypnol

One of the most common ways a person will drug someone is by slipping it into their drink when they are not looking. To avoid getting drugged always make sure you see them and what they are doing. If you are at a party or bar make sure you watch them the whole time they are getting your drink. Don't take your eyes off of the glass the whole time. If you are with someone at their house do the same. If they offer you a pop or water tell them not to open it but make sure you do. That way you know nothing can get slipped in.

Rohypnol how and why is it used?

These are drugs that are sometimes used to assist in a sexual assault. Sexual assault is any type of sexual activity that a person does not agree to. It can include touching that is not okay, sexual intercourse, rape and attempted rape. These drugs are powerful and dangerous. Predaters use drugs like Rohypnol due to how easily they can be slipped into your drink when you are not looking. The drugs often have no color, smell, or taste, so you can’t tell if you are being drugged. The drugs can make you become weak and confused, even pass out, so that you are unable to refuse sex or defend yourself. If you are drugged, you might not remember what happened while you were drugged. Date rape drugs are used on both females and males.

Rohypnol is this the only date rape drug?

Rohypnol unfortunately is not the only drug you have to be concerned with being used as a date rape drug. There are other drugs used just as much as Rohypnol. Two of those drugs are called GHB and Ketamine. Along with Rohypnol these drugs are knowingly used by individuals wanting to get this type of “high”. Raves and trance events are generally night-long dances, often held in warehouses. Many who attend raves and trances do not use club drugs, but those who do may be attracted to their generally low cost and the intoxicating highs that are said to deepen the rave or trance experience.

* Rohypnol is usually taken orally, although there are reports that it can be ground up and snorted.

* GHB and Rohypnol have both been used to facilitate date rape (also known as “drug rape,” “acquaintance rape,” or “drug-assisted” assault). They can be colorless, tasteless, and odorless, and can be added to beverages and ingested unbeknownst to the victim. When mixed with alcohol, Rohypnol can incapacitate victims and prevent them from resisting sexual assault.

* GHB also has anabolic effects (it stimulates protein synthesis) and has been sought by bodybuilders to aid in fat reduction and muscle building.

* Ketamine is usually snorted or injected intramuscularly.
