spiked by injection in my thigh only 10 mins after entering the club. felt it and told my friend who looked and saw the needle mark. collapsed approx 5 mins later on the dance floor and fell unconscious and couldn’t walk. was carried out by bouncers and my friends told them i was spiked by injection so they carried me into a “first aid room”. 2 “first aiders” who were just bouncers were shown my spike mark to which they dismissed me completely. told me i was “paranoid” and said the wound was old. gave me no actual medical attention or called for ambulance when i kept going unconscious and couldn’t even stand up or walk. carried me outside and left me on the pavement with my friends who didn’t know what to do. my family was never called (i’ve only just turned 19) nor was an ambulance. my friends had to carry me to their uni flat as i couldn’t walk and kept vomiting and falling unconscious. the club handled the whole thing awfully and have traumatised me. i ended up being taken to a&e by my dad in the morning to get medical attention and was given an injection to prevent disease from the needle. we have reported the incident to the police who are trying to get cctv footage as i think i know who did this to me- i also told the bouncers this and said they need to be searched in case they do it to someone else but they ignored me.

Me and 5 of my friends went clubbing in pryzm where one of my friends had been spiked. Everything was fine until all of a sudden she started feeling dizzy, shutting her eyes and couldn’t speak. We went to the toilet where she was sick after we came out and went back to dance where a man approached her and said she doesn’t look to well and said she needed to get out of there. She said no and he kept talking to her. We then went into the other bigger room where he had followed us. None of us realised this until the next morning on videos on our phones and where we had realised she has been spiked as she had an injection on her back.

I had gone out that night only had 4 drinks as I was up early for work I knew myself I was not drunk but as soon as I left the bar I was on a happy buzz but put it down to the alcohol hitting me all at once. Within 30-40 mins of being injected I was unresponsive to other people had no control over the movement of my head my eyes were rolling back or closing no matter how hard I tried to open them, I was aware of what was going on around me but could not speak properly to let people know something did not feel right, again my eyes wouldn’t open no matter how hard I tried so could no communicate properly. I also could not walk without help and could not sit up straight. Other people including bouncers just thought I was drunk but when I got to hospital the nurse had found the puncture mark of the needle. I’m very lucky and grateful I had amazing friends that night that knew something was wrong and contacted my mam and sister to get me help.

I believe my drink was spiked. I started feeling sick, vomiting, the room was strobbing, hallucinations, lost ability to speak and was physically weak. We had a lot to drink but this was nothing like being drunk. Reported it to the bar manager but they didn't really know what to do. Police said hospital could test to see what it might have been, but the hospital said they can't do them in their lab.

I’ve been spiked twice here and almost spiked a third time. The first time both me and a friend were spiked and we came to at the exact same time, somehow we had managed to get ourselves both back to my house but we don’t remember anything at all. The second time I knew what was going on but I couldn’t move my muscles or lift my head up etc. Luckily my friends got me home (my bag had also been stolen). One time I ordered a drink from the bar in the second room and my friend needed the toilet so we went straight from the bar to the bathroom and in the bathroom light I saw my vodka blue drink (which should have been neon blue) was actually green and murky. I poured it down the sink straight away so no one could drink it. I didn’t tell the venue about that as to me it seems pretty clear that someone working behind the bar is spiking girls drinks and I hate confrontation. Every time we have been spiked/almost spiked it was from drinks from the second bar. We are always careful with our drinks and never put them down anywhere also.

Spiked by member of staff - gave us free shots with no reason on a roulette style board. After drinking the shot (had only had 2/3 other drinks and had eaten a whole pizza previously) I don’t remember anything, went to the toilet and passed out, was unconscious and coming round and being constantly sick before collapsing again. Couldn’t move my body or talk. Ambulance was called and I was taken to hospital. Reported to the police but was told It couldn’t be investigated as nothing actually happened to me as my friends were with me at all times.

Drinks were delivered from the bar to the table due to covid restrictions. They were never left unattended. All four of us ended up collapsing and ambulance was called by a member of the public outside due to staff assuming we were drunk and asking us to leave. Begged for help but security staff dismissed us. My mum contacted the bar and was told nothing on cctv!

My friends were out in Livello, both got kicked out of the club by the bouncers (were unsure of exactly why still but it seems that they appeared “too drunk”). May I add they were kicked out alone, with none of their belongings, and the bouncers failed to notify their friends of their exit. One of the girls, who luckily had friends around her was in and out of consciousness and violently throwing up. The other girl, woke up in a&e. Neither of these girls have any memory from the night, which is mentally traumatising. After both of the girls receiving medical attention, high levels of Rohypnol In their blood (the doctors compared the levels to someone who had taken an overdose). One girl has concussion and the other has liver problems as a result of the incident. They are both needing time of work and uni to recover. We are still unaware of who may have spiked them as police enquiries are on going.

i only had 2/3 drinks and i was found passed out in the toilets in a pile of sick. the medical team were useless, i was half conscious and the kept telling me to stop being delusional and silly and that i haven’t been spiked over and over when i knew i had and so did my friends. my friends ended up having to shout at the medical team (they’re medical students) to say that by taking my blood pressure and oxygen saturation you can’t tell if someone’s been spiked yet i was pretty much just left in the room with my friends without medical attention, the treatment of me was awful, it was passed off as me being drunk and i wasn’t happy that they kept calling me silly and telling me to stop being silly, that is not how you treat someone who has been spiked.
