'Foxy' Drug Causes Rhabdomyolysis|
Rhabdomyolysis is a condition characterized by disintegration or dissolution of muscle and a known complication of multiple drugs of abuse, but prior to this study hadn't been identified as a risk factor for 'foxy.'
Newswise — A hallucinogenic drug commonly known as “foxy methoxy” (5-MeO-DIPT) has been abused with increasing frequency since the late 1990s, and physicians detail what may be the first report of rhabdomyolysis associated with ingestion of the drug.
According to the case report from the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio, a 23-year-old man was brought to the emergency department because of combative behavior and hallucinations. He’d ingested 25 milligrams (mg) of “foxy” about 30 minutes before his symptoms began.
