Dr Gregory Brammer
As an emergency care expert, Dr. Gregory Brammer had his fair share of cases where he helped people suffering from Rohypnol toxicity. Some of these people were young women who unfortunately had gone through unspeakable things. Rohypnol is often used as a rape drug because of its ability to cause drowsiness, sudden blackouts and memory loss.
How They Use It
The drug is used orally almost exclusively, often being slipped into the targeted person’s drink. There are occasions when users crush it before snorting similarly to cocaine, or smoking it, but in the vast majority of these cases, involuntary use is typically unusual.
What It Does
The main reason why Rohypnol got so much attention in the last couple of years was the fact that sexual predators have often used it to incapacitate their victims who were predominantly women. The drug has an extremely strong and sudden effect, causing drowsiness and blackouts, sometimes mere seconds after it enters the body. The other reason why these criminals use this drug is its effect on the memory. Rohypnol causes anterograde amnesia, which means that the victims often cannot remember anything, making the identification of the culprit much more difficult. When someone experiences the symptoms, it is very important to alert medical services and the police immediately.
Dr. Gregory Brammer hopes that parents and children will be more conscious about the devastating effects of this drug.
