Date rape drugs

Indications of ingestion

  • Abrupt loss of memory;
  • Doubts whether the blackout was triggered by the alcohol consumption;
  • Dizziness, excessive sweating or drowsiness (dream-like feeling) often set in even before the loss of memory.
  • After the victims have come round again they can suffer from strong nausea. This is often exacerbated by many hours of vomiting, panic and anxiety attacks.
  • Even days afterwards, some victims still suffer from concentration disorders; their memory fails time and again, and they forget things they have just remembered.
  • The women and girls affected suffer from strong doubts over their feelings (especially if they do not have any physical injuries from the rape/abuse).
