How can I tell if I have been given a date rape drug?

The effects of date rape drugs feel similar to that of alcohol except at a much faster, more extreme rate. People who have been given a date rape drug will black out and cannot remember events from the previous night. Many times survivors do not remember being drugged because the drug has no taste, color, or smell. The drugs will make you weak and confused and perhaps even pass out. Date rape drugs are used on both males and females.  

Once the drugs begin to wear off, you may feel similar to the effects of a hangover from drinking alcohol.
