Indications of Sizzurp Addiction

Monitoring the Potential for Abuse

Since being approved by the FDA in 1958 as an antitussive, sizzurp began to develop a rapid and steady increase in popularity as a recreational drug. In the 90’s, it exploded in popularity due to its association with crunk music at the time. It acts as a dissociative hallucinogenic similar to ketamine or phencyclidine, making it popular both as a club drug or use in isolation. It causes visual and auditory distortions, distorted bodily perception, excitement, or a disrupted sense of time. Some of the signs of sizzurp abuse include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Body rash and itching
  • Sedation
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Spikes of aggression
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Paranoia
  • Jittering or trembling
  • Confusion
  • Dissinesss
  • Excessively nervous

These conditions could be signs of serious medical problems. If you or a loved one are experiencing these or any other symptoms, please contact your physician immediately and start getting the help you need.
