Great NYT article about Flakka, the new next generation bath salt stimulant.
It’s actually quite sad but since the beginning of this year we’ve seen a spike of these patients hit our Emergency Department.
I know from firsthand experience treating these patients that it is true they experience delirium, psychosis, elevated temperatures, muscle breakdown and in some cases renal failure and death.
Terrible drug, terrible effects on the patients. Read about it here.
Have any Flakka patient care stories you'd like to share? Please post in the comments.
