Rebel Wilson has opened up about a terrifying nightclub ordeal on Twitter.
The 36-year-old actress told fans that she may have had her drink spiked, urging others to be vigilant when out and about over the weekend.
She wrote: ‘Hey guys, but especially to all the girls out there, please be super careful about what you drink when out at clubs and bars at night X [sic].
‘I had one drink last night at a trendy club which I believe may have been spiked with something. I felt super tired and disoriented.
‘I got home safely but woke up this morning feeling like I’d been hit by a truck. I never thought that would happen to me, but if it does…
‘Please act as soon as you feel something strange and get yourself to safety.’
Thankfully, Rebel recognised that something was amiss before finishing her beverage. She continued: ‘Lucky for me, I only drank 1/3 of the drink and realized something wasn’t quite right in time to get home before it really hit me.’
Rebel didn’t reveal which club she was at, but is believed to have been in LA.
So what are the tell-tale signs that your drink’s been tampered with? Well, according to the NHS, most ‘date rape’ drugs take effect within 15-30 minutes and symptoms usually last for several hours.
If you’re sticking to soft drinks, be aware that alcohol is actually the most common substance used to spike drinks.
Depending on the substance used, symptoms include difficulty concentrating or speaking, loss of balance and finding it hard to move, visual problems (particularly blurred vision), memory loss, hallucinations and nausea.
