Since rohypnol has more of chemical make up also it

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

Since Rohypnol has more of chemical make up also it causes a long term effect on having a slow pulse and breathing, leading to unconsciousness, slowed heart rate, suppressed breathing and, ultimately, death.Long-term use of Rohypnol causes significant immunological disorders which causes infections and illnesses such as pneumonia.. GABA promotes relaxation and moderates stress but also supports the immune system in critical ways. A link between damaged GABA receptors and the immune system may explain why people withdrawing from Rohypnol succumb to frequent infections or seem to heal more slowly from wounds. Physical effects will be visual disturbance, decreased blood pressure, mental confusion, gastrointestinal disturbance, and urinary retention. Depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder are among the most common psychological side effects Rohypnol use, while immediate problems can include confusion, restlessness, and irritability. People who have mental health conditions that cause them to suffer from such problems as hallucinations or severe mood swings will only experience worsening symptoms under Rohypnol.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
