Since about 1990, GHB (gamma- hydroxybutyrate) has been abused in the U.S. for euphoric, sedative, and anabolic (body building) effects. As with Rohypnol and clonazepam, GHB has been associated with sexual assault in cities throughout the country.

Reports from Detroit indicate liquid GHB is being used in nightclubs for effects similar to those of Rohypnol. It is also common in the club scene in Phoenix, Honolulu, and Texas, where it is known as "liquid ecstacy," "somatomax," "scoop," or "grievous bodily harm." In Miami, poison control center calls have reflected problems associated with increased GHB use, including loss of consciousness. In New York City, there have been reports of GHB use among those in the fashion industry. In Atlanta, it is commonly used as a synthetic steroid at fitness centers and gyms.

Coma and seizures can occur following abuse of GHB and, when combined with ecstasy, there appears to be an increased risk of seizure. Combining use with other drugs such as alcohol can result in nausea and difficulty breathing. GHB may also produce withdrawal effects, including insomnia, anxiety, tremors, and sweating. Because of concern about Rohypnol, GHB, and other similarly abused sedative-hypnotics, Congress passed the "Drug-Induced Rape Prevention and Punishment Act of 1996" in October 1996. This legislation increased Federal penalties for use of any controlled substance to aid in sexual assault.

Appearance: A clear liquid, GHB is often mixed with fruit juice to conceal its salty, unpleasant taste.

Actions/Effects: First synthesized by a French researcher in the 1960's, GHB is structurally similar to the neurotransmitter GABA and triggers its effects, by increasing the brain's supply of the neurotransmitters GABA and dopamine. At moderate doses, GHB causes feelings of relaxation, euphoria, and disinhibition much like alcohol. At higher doses, GHB induces a sleep so deep that it can be mistaken for coma.

Risks/Side Effects:  Since GHB occurs naturally in the human body (and serves as a precursor in the production of GABA), the chemical is relatively nontoxic. Still, synthetic forms of GHB can irritate the stomach and cause nausea or vomiting. Confusion and impaired motor skills may also occur, particularly at higher doses, but food can reverse these effects. Use in combination with alcohol intensifies effects and the risk of overdose.

Addiction Potential: Although tolerance to GHB's effects appears with long-term use, it does not produce physical dependence. GHB can be psychologically addictive, however, particularly for those with a history of chemical dependency.

Duration: Effects begin within 5-20 minutes of ingestion and last 1-3 hours, but can be prolonged through repeated dosing.

Medical Uses: GHB is used in Europe to ease childbirth, and has also been used to treat insomnia, narcolepsy, and alcoholism.

Trends: Following incidents of drink "spiking," and allegations that GHB was used in incidents of date rape, federal legislation designating GHB as a Schedule I controlled substance was signed into law in February, 2000, banning possession and sale of the drug throughout the United States.

Information and educational materials on Rohypnol and GHB directed toward college students are available from the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center at 1-800-END-RAPE (1-800-363-7273). These materials are also being distributed by the U.S. Department of Justice to law enforcement agencies throughout the country.
