Better known by its trade name, Rohypnol, flunitrazepam is a member of the benzodiazepine class of drugs. It’s an extremely potent tranquilizer used to treat chronic insomnia, or as part of anesthesia.

What is Flunitrazepam?

Much more infamously, flunitrazepam is used as a “date rape drug” and a robbery drug as larger doses of it can cause memory loss. Flunitrazepam abuse is exceptionally risky, too.

While it’s easy to build up a tolerance, get addicted, and overdose on all benzodiazepines, flunitrazepam’s potency makes those bad outcomes much more likely.

Detoxing from flunitrazepam abuse can be complex, unpleasant, and dangerous. Flunitrazepam detox should never be done on one’s own.

Seeking help for flunitrazepam addiction must be done at a clinical, medically monitored detox center.
