A person’s drink can be spiked to make them more vulnerable for a variety of motives, including theft or sexual assault, and the different types of spiking include a number of substances being added to your drink.
The substances may be alcohol, date rape drugs’, illegal drugs or prescription drugs such as stimulants ,opiates , tranquilizers or sedatives.
Investigations by Healthy Nation show that a number of drugs, mostly sedatives and ‘date rape drugs’ , are being used for this life-threatening illicit activity.
The commonly used drugs include stilnox, amitriptyline, rohypnol, vailum and ketamine.
According to Dr George Njoroge, a board member at the Kenya Medical Research Institute and the founder of Centre of Africa’s Life Sciences, who is credited for spearheading the discovery of the anti-cancer drug SARASAR®, Stilnox belongs to a class of medicines referred to as hypnotics and works by binding to special sites in the brain and makes one go to sleep.
