Since the Fieldcraft section is no longer here I thought this was the best spot. If I am mistaken please move.

I was told by 2 "shady" characters where I work today that 2 drops of Visine eye drops would knock a person out for a couple of hours. The context they were talking about it in was you meet a girl at a bar she drops some in your drink and then robs you. Of course it was also mentioned as a date rape type thing.

Anyone know if it's true or just Urban Myth?

Urban myth. However, they do seem to cause diarrhea.

Heard the same thing. Waiters/waitresses use it on crappy customers. Haven't tried it as the in-house staff (wife) lives with me. :smile:

YMMV

Whatever Visine will or will not do, in the scenario given the bad guy/girl could put anything in the bottle and use that.

Unfortunately, or as the case may be fortunately Visine changed the formula a few years ago. Seems a few incidents of children drinking it and dying from dehydration resulting from the expulsion. Was a handy thing to have on days when the boss gets to micromanaging, but those days with eye drops are gone now.

Ive heard, tho I would never do anything like it, that a few drops of ATF in the coffee pot will create havoc in the lower intestinal tract. But I would NEVER so anything like that, Im a pacifist and care about my fellow human beings

Use Ether over mouth and nose, 5 seconds they out. Ps Ether also has a chemical reaction with sticky stuff, it will make anything sticky stick like mad. We use it over tape for wounds,it will not come loose.

This particular urban myth is about 50 years old, dating back to when it was true. A drug called scopolamine used to be used in eye drops, and would do this. It is not used in eye drops any longer, and what it is used for is prescription-only.

Scopolamine AKA Burundanga. I worked one case in Bogota where this was used to drug an embassy worker. He disappeared by Parque 93. Alcohol and a pretty young lady we involved (Im so shocked!). We recovered him the folowing day bruised and dirty. He had little knowledge of what had happened...and had lost all of his clothes, wallet, watch. Fortunatly we were able to obtain the surveailence tape what was overlooking the cash register.

A friend of mine used eye drops to this effect on her now ex-husband.

My first response to this started with "C" and followed up with a few other choice words, including "B" and more "C's"; but then I suppose it might have been his fault for drinking with the enemy....

On a more scientific note there are much better choices if diarrhea is the intended purpose, like syurp of ipac.

You guys couldn't be more wrong and you are going to get someone killed. IT CAN and will knock you out but that is if you are lucky. More likely you would cause a coma. At the least respiratory failure. I registered JUST to say this. Don't talk about stuff you DO NOT know about irresponsibly. Its NOT a myth. A SIMPLE Google search would prevent this BAD information! I have about ZERO faith in this site now and will now be leaving not to return. So talk as much @#%@# as you want because Ill never read it.

Thanks and stop being stupid and dangerous.

Not urban myth, in that it can cause illness requiring hospitalization. Most likely, it will cause explosive diarrhea and you'll have to leave the bar (or wherever you are). It can be used by seedy bar personnel to get rid of a troublesome drunk. The more booze in you, I think the greater "problem" you will experience. Not too long ago, a woman was convicted for causing injury for doing this very thing. If I find link, I'll post it.

I know a psycho alcoholic waitress that has admitted she has done this. She always carries Visine with her. Her boyfriend told me, "I never saw her put it in her eyes."

Re: visine

Years back we had a foster kid that was initially diagnosed as failure to thrive when he came to us. Further investigation found munchhausen by proxy. Birth mom was feeding her 1 year old eyedrops for the sympathy she herself received as the caregiver of 'such a tough infant'. That was a horrible case.

Perhaps you should not speak about things for which you are uninformed.

Please crawl back into the hole from which you reared your ugly head. Emphatic wrong assertions are still untrue. Visine is a weak drop and a lousy antihistamine and vasoconstrictor.

Now, atropine 1% drops, which are by prescription only, that can do something.
