5 Common Date Rape Drugs and the App that Could Save Your Life


Dr. Pat Basu, Chief Medical Officer of Doctor on Demand, discusses five drugs often used to date rape and the effects they have on the body.

Watch the video above to find out which drug listed below is the most commonly used (you may be surprised).   1. Rohypnol – also known as Roofies; comes in pill form, usually put in drinks; takes about 30 minutes to take effect.

2. GHB – liquid ecstasy; very fast-acting, with the effects being felt within 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Ketamine – fastest of the drugs listed here; used as an anesthetic on animals.

4. Quaaludes – sleep aid; will take effect in at least 30 minutes with alcohol (or quicker in higher doses); can stay in your system for 1 to 3 days.

5. Alcohol  
Also in the video, Dr. Phil explains the Aspire News app that Robin developed that could save someone's life. “If they’re on a date, or they’re in a bar, and they take a drink, and all of a sudden they start feeling woozy, the clock’s ticking,” he says. Watch the video to hear how the Aspire News app works, and visit When Georgia Smiled for more information.
