They are bad news. Rohypnol will make you do things, you can't even begin to imagine. I know people who had distress withall their friends, lost some of them, just after one day of rohypnol. They do not remember what they did, they only heard from others. I have no personal experience with it. Anybody who does?
- According to a University of Florida drug hotline, "Roofies" are often combined with alcohol, marijuana, or cocaine to produce a rapid and very dramatic "high". Even when used by itself, users can appear extremely intoxicated, with slurred speech, no coordination, swaying, and blood-shot eyes...with no odor of alcohol.
Flunitrazepam—marketed under the trade name Rohypnol—is manufactured worldwide, particularly in Europe and Latin America, in 1- and 2-milligram tablets by Hoffman-La Roche, Inc., a large pharmaceutical manufacturer. However, the drug neither is manufactured nor approved for medical use in the United States.
Flunitrazepam is ingested orally, frequently in conjunction with alcohol or other drugs, including heroin. The drug’s effects begin within 30 minutes, peak within 2 hours, and may persist for up to 8 hours or more, depending upon the dosage. Adverse effects associated with the use of flunitrazepam include decreased blood pressure, memory impairment, drowsiness, visual disturbances, dizziness, confusion, gastrointestinal disturbances, and urinary retention. Paradoxically, although the drug is classified as a depressant, flunitrazepam can induce excitability or aggressive behavior in some users.
Flunitrazepam use causes dependence in humans. Once dependence has developed, abstention induces withdrawal symptoms, including headache, muscle pain, extreme anxiety, tension, restlessness, confusion, and irritability. Numbness, tingling of the extremities, loss of identity, hallucinations, delirium, convulsions, shock, and cardiovascular collapse also may occur. Withdrawal seizures can occur a week or more after cessation of use. As with other benzodiazepines, treatment for flunitrazepam dependence must be gradual, with use tapering off.
Flunitrazepam is touted as an effective “parachute” or remedy for the depression that follows a stimulant high. Reports indicate that flunitrazepam is used by drug addicts in Spain and Malaysia to allay withdrawal symptoms and to gain a state of oblivion. Abuse of the drug in Western Europe and the Caribbean has been reported over the last 10 years. In Germany, Roche recently removed the 2-milligram dosage from retail distribution—restricting it to hospital use only—due to the increasing abuse of flunitrazepam in that country.
In the United States, flunitrazepam is used widely in Texas where it is popular among high school students. Flunitrazepam is reported to be readily available in the Miami area, and epidemiologists from that area have stated that it is South Florida’s fastest growing drug problem. Additional reports from Miami indicate that the largest and fastest growing group of flunitrazepam users are high school students who take the drug with alcohol or use it after cocaine ingestion. Two common misperceptions about flunitrazepam may explain the drug’s popularity among young people: first, many erroneously believe that the drug is unadulterated—and therefore “safe”—because it comes in presealed bubble packs; second, many mistakenly think its use cannot be detected by urinalysis testing.
Flunitrazepam is sold under the trade name Rohypnol, from which the street name “Rophy” is derived. In South Florida, street names include “circles,” “Mexican valium,” “rib,” “roach-2,” “roofies,” “roopies,” “rope,” “ropies,” and “ruffies.” Being under the influence of the drug is referred to as being “roached out.” In Texas, flunitrazepam is called “R-2,” or “roaches.”
I have had roofies once before. I will tell you what little I remember. i had about 10-12 friends over to spin records. one friend came over with a little "surprise". I thought he just had some x or somethin'. but once i was informed, i was quite excited. I had heard before that this shit makes you completly oblivient to most everything around you, you just don't give a fuck. me and 5 others each took a hit and waited. the shit kicked in sooner than i thought, i am still amazed about what little i remember. never been a fan of "sitters" but am sure glad we had em'. one buddy actually took some footage on a digital camera while we were high. I woke up remembering hardly anything, and even after I watched the tape, i still couldn't recall. that sure is some fun shit to watch though, definately a keeper. all i know is that i got real fuckin' high and will probaly do it again.
Just realized i came off like a complete psycho in my reply...GOOD
(some occasions call for it) I really hope that post wasnt out of
interest of date rape! If its that bad get a job cleaning toilets and
save up for a hoe no reason to hurt others over a nut. if it was for
date rape purposes then maybe before you act go talk with some victims
(supervised visit of coarse) and there families then re-think. if the
post was not made with harmful intention my bad. otherwise see
you in hell!
p.s. also interview some people in prison for rape before you make up
your mind and ask em how many times they have been a cum dump when the
boys hear what there doin time for
wowzer...for some reason i always thought roofies and GHB were the same thing just different names. Very interesting
post and setting my record strait.
GHB is almost as bad I oly had one experiance with it me and my cousin
and a friend took it about an hour later my cousin was out cold.
I didnt think much off it at first but when someone came buy to pick up
some coke and the lock box key was in my cousins pocket.. well it was
pretty much tossing him around the room I was starting to get scared
then he woke up said about 3 words and fell asleep standing up. this
went on for about 30 min. he talked to me for a while and didnt
remember a thing in the morning. I had fun on GHB but some people just
dont react to it well if he was a woman I have no dought that I or we
could have raped him that shit scares me I warn everyone I know about G
I love it but for females I recomend doing it around someone they trust
I've done roofies many times, we used to do em after school all the
time when I was living in nicaragua[sometimes during school]. I have a
very high tolerance to depresants and benzodiazepines [I took
clonazepan for about 4 years, from 1 to 3 pills a day, mostly orally
but some times snored], I could even take a couple of valium and still
stay awake. So the roofies just gave me a buzz, I felt as if I was
totally drunk, hitting the walls, falling around [kind of hard to
walk]; and it was basically cheaper to get than beer and easier o drink
without too many people noticing.
Some of my friends use to mix it up with coke to stay awake, but I
never really liked tinkerbell, so I use to take tiamina [a caffeine and
b12 pill] when I needed to wake up.
Now a days I don't play around with pills anymore, it just fux up my
mind too much... I just take the ones I have to, at the right dosages.
From the people i know who have done roofies and ghb they have said that roofies was a waste. Ghb was much like alcohol if you didn't have too much otherwise you probably would pass out. Roofies on the other hand have similar effects too, but you won't remember much if anything of what happened which is why people use them for date rape. I think ghb gets a bad rep because it seems to me that people really don't use it much for date rape, because the person could probably remember some of what happened.
Alcohol is really the number one date rape drug. My good friend
was given an almost lethal dose of ruffies by some guy who tried to
rape her. Luckily he just stole her money. She had to go to
the hospital beause that idiot gave her a near lethal dose of the
shit. Don't think about using it as a date rape drug because that
is just wrong. Flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) is schedule 4 in all 50
states in the USA except Oklahoma, Idaho, and Minnesota. It is
schedule 1 in those three states. REMEMBER that alcohol is the
number one date rape drug, but ruffies are very effective because the
victim might just pass out and not remember what the hell happened to
Roofies are nice. I've done them a couple of times. I quit though, since i don't like the amnesia i got from them. I still take them now and then, but if you cant remember having a good time, whats the point?
Roofies is the only benzo you can find in the black market(obviously the only benzo junkies and drug consumers like).
Since 8 years pharma company changed the pill so as preventing being dissolved on alcohol or any liquid.Before this ,was the regular white pill easily dissolved and now appears to be green ,hard to dissolve ,even to take subliqually.It also, if you take it subliqually your whole mouth turns on a green colour.And would say like it most from what been tried and totally aggree with some of the previous posts about aggressiveness, and weird stimulation.
SWIM used to get rohypnol/roofies in Mexico, where they now seem to no longer be available.
Roofies are very, very strong benzos, once described to SWIM as valium * 10. SWIM would never waste a roofie on a girl to get her into bed.
SWIM used roofies (and hundreds of them over a couple year period) to come down off stuff. The comedown off coke, meth (didn't have roofies at this point unfortunately,) or a good Ketamine run can be brutal. Often, one wants to just be asleep immediately. And that's where, for SWIM, roofies come in.
Example: SWIM runs out of coke at 4:10am, he already at 2 or 3 roofies at 4:00AM and is asleep by, say, 4:20am. No comedown issues.
SWIM never even considered taking roofies just to get high, so on this he can't comment.
Aslo a ton of misinfo in this post SWIM's too tired right now to fix. Mainly, GHB his HIGHLY dosage specific, so to say anything good or bad about it without taking dosage into effect is really ignorant. In and of itself it is neither good or bad. SWIM enjoys is quite a bit and knows his personal dosage levels very well.
My best friend and I went away for a night. We started off in the hotel bar. A man sat next to us that seemed nice at first. We had a few more drinks...some we bought...some he bought. He got creepy when he started talking sexual to us, so we decided it was time to leave. We went back to our room. He tried to follow us in there, but we wouldn't allow it. After waiting for a while...we walked to the restaurant to have dinner. We don't remember too much about dinner, but we did order dinner, had probably another drink, paid our bill and walked back to our room. Once we made it back to the room...things got spotty memory wise. (now approx 2 + hrs from being in the hotel bar) I layed down on my bed to pass out, when my friend jumped on me and somewhat aggressively started kissing me saying how much she wanted me and how much she's always wanted me. After trying to fight her off of me for a little bit...I finally gave in and we began "making out". Afterwards...we were able to walk around...eat some left overs and watch about 2 secs of tv, before passing out. We actually woke up a few hrs later and "made out" again! When we finally woke up for good the next morning...both of us knew "somewhat" of what had happened...actually just "flashes" of it and were TOTALLY shocked. We have done MANY trips together in which we've gotten WAY more drunk than this night. Never did we EVER do this to each other or even try. My friend said she got a blood and urine test that afternoon and it came back positive for "roofies". I have yet to see the results, but only because I haven’t seen her since. I did not get tested myself. Everything that I read says you pretty much just pass out if you take roofies. My friend and I have been friends for a VERY long time. She means the world to me, so I don't want our friendship to disappear if indeed it was due to being drugged. Could that guy possibly have put something in our drinks that would have made us act like this or was it maybe something else. Neither one of us have EVER made out with another women and are currently in relationships with men. Please help...I don't want our friendship to go away.
sounds like someone dosed you something...it's an extremely unfortunate bit of society that there are some true sick fucks out there! you and your friend got very lucky that nothing worse happened. it may be somewhat uncomfortable for you both, considering what happened, but your friendship should be able to persevere. give it a little time, talk about it & I'm sure before long you'll both be laughing over it (the making out, not the being drugged.)
in 2007 some friends & i went to vegas. we had just gotten settled into our rooms & i realized i'd forgotten my fave hair product. anyway tried to get them (2 male friends) to walk down the vegas strip with me to drug store & we'd stop for drinks & what not on the way back. neither of them had been to vegas before, but i had been several times. anyway i said screw you bums i'm going out! bad idea! got my hair goop, stopped at one outside bar & ordered one drink (don't think i drank much of it.) was having a conversation with some dude who seemed cool; at least decent enough to converse with over a drink rather than drinking all alone ... remember needing to use the bathroom & that's all i remember until i woke up on the floor in my hotel room.
to this day i have no clue what happened in those hours. woke up with excruciating headache, lost my prescription eyeglasses & of course the hair goop. fortunately i still had the the $2,500 cash in my pocket & my turtleneck was all tucked into my undies so don't think i got raped. probably what saved me was getting up to go pee...which i must have never made it to do cuz i'd obviously pissed myself!
UGH moral of the story...one can never be too careful! especially us women there are some sick, twisted, depraved scum-bags out there! read of cups & straws that are being tested that will detect if a drink has been doped. they work very similar to an instant drug screen, cup &/or straw has indicator lines that appear if certain drugs have been added to the drink.
P.S....i know this is an ancient thread, but confusedandworried bumped it before me (for very valid reasons) so thought what the hell i'll add my, suspected, "roofie" story
The person that bumped this old thread did so because they had a genuine reason to - because they are Confusedandworried about being drugged, so I'd think that would be deemed as appropriate.
To that poster, hello sweetheart, welcome to DF. The only way that you be able to establish more about what caused you to pass out and your friend to behave that way towards you will be to see her lab report. It is possible that you were affected by something other than Roofies, which awoke other feelings towards you that she'd never had before.....and now she's embarrassed. It could have been the alcohol- I remember a time when a friend and I shared a bottle of wine over dinner at a restaurant and were totally and unbelievably wiped. Neither of us could believe that we could be so strongly affected by a half bottle of wine each along with food, but we were.
If you were both drugged by that guy in the bar, and it was Roofies, then I think you had a really lucky escape. Thank goodness you never let him into your room.
Seeing the lab report will tell you if it was Roofies or not.....but even if this attraction was caused by too much to drink and a secret desire that she now regrets acting out....would it bother you enough to end the friendship? Or could you both simply laugh about it and forget it?
As Frmrjunkie so rightly comments, there are some sick people out there, and sometimes it isn't always obvious who they are. I think women today have to be really clued up and suspicious with any strangers. Maybe the only way to be sure that a drink isn't laced is to sit at the bar with the stranger, watch the bartender serve the drink and then never let it out of your sight.
Thankfully, apart from embarrassment, and a bit puzzled by your friend's unexpected advances, you are here to tell the tale.
