Rohypnol 1mg is a benzodiazepine medication with sedating, anti-anxiety, and hypnotic properties. Although it’s prescribed in a number of countries to treat insomnia, Rohypnol has never been legal in the United States. It’s commonly smuggled in, however, and is widely abused.
Rohypnol 1mg is a very powerful drug, about 10 times as strong as Valium. The effects of a single dose, as small as 1 milligram, can last for 8 to 12 hours. Effects begin after about 30 minutes, and typically peak about two hours after ingestion.
Rohypnol 1mg is a sedating drug, and as such can cause extreme drowsiness, slurred speech, decreased blood pressure and impaired coordination. It can also cause paradoxical effects such as aggression, nightmares, and seizures. Confusion is common. Many overdose deaths are attributed to respiratory depression, which is especially common when Rohypnol is combined with alcohol.
When people become dependent on Rohypnol, withdrawal symptoms also become part of the picture. There are a wide variety of possible withdrawal symptoms. These include vomiting, headache, insomnia, heart problems, seizures, hallucinations and delirium. It is important that Rohypnol detox be supervised medically, because withdrawal can be dangerous and even fatal.
Rohypnol 1mg is widely abused, in part, because it is relatively inexpensive. However, it isn’t a safe drug to take recreationally in any amount. The risks are too high and the possible consequences too great.
There are a number of very serious effects associated with Rohypnol. The drug is known as a “date-rape” drug, because it tends to cause disinhibition and amnesia. People who take the drug, either knowingly or unknowingly, may not remember anything that happened while they were under its influence. The effects are intensified when the drug is combined with alcohol, leading to memory loss of up to 24 hours.
Effects may include blackouts, with a complete loss of memory, dizziness, respiratory depression (slowed breathing), disorientation, nausea, difficulty with motor movements and speaking. Rohypnol can produce physical and psychological dependence. Rohypnol is considered a “date rape” drug.
