Putting eye drops in drinks
Please could you tell me how one would know whether a drink has been spiked with eye drops? Would the person feel as if they had a hangover the next day, or would it be a different feeling? Is there any way to tell at the time, maybe by the taste, that a drink has been spiked? Thank you.

Hi Christine

They spike drinks with Retinol, eye drops don't have the same effect. When your drink have been spiked, memmory loss occurs, and you normally can't remember much. You will pass out - "when the date-rape drug" is used in your drink"/ so always drink out of tins/ bottles that you can open yourself.

Good luck, be safe
