What is Rohyphnol?

Rohypnol® is a powerful benzodiazepine and acts as a central nervous system depressant. It has become widely known as the  “date rape” because it has been used to sedate potential victims. In a medical setting, it has been used to treat insomnia  and a precursor to anesthesia in some countries outside of the U.S. Rohypnol® is a trade name for flunitrazepam, a central nervous system (CNS) depressant that belongs to a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines. Flunitrazepam is also marketed as generic preparations and other trade name products outside of the United States. Like other benzodiazepines, Rohypnol® produces sedative-hypnotic, anti-anxiety, and muscle relaxant effects. This drug has never been approved for medical use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration.

What are the Effects?

Benzodiazepines suppress the central nervous system causing sever drowsiness and sleepiness. Amnesia and spouts of memory lapse are common among users and these effects are increased with larger doses. High doses of Rohypnol®, particularly when combined with CNS depressant drugs such as alcohol and heroin, can cause severe sedation, unconsciousness, slow heart rate, and suppression of respiration that may be sufficient to result in death.
