New Drug In Town – Ivory Wave Bath Salts. Watch Out!

There’s a new drug in town. It’s sold as bath salts called Ivory Wave. It contains a mixture of lidocaine, the local anesthetic used in dental offices and other medical settings, and pyrovalerone, a hallucinogenic stimulant prescribed for weight loss and chronic fatigue or lethargy.

Side effects of pyrovalerone include anxiety, anorexia, shaking, trembling, tremors, loss of appetite and insomnia.

The side effects of lidocaine when it gets into the system rather than being used locally, can include cardiovascular collapse, cardiac arrest, high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythm, nervousness, tingling around the mouth, tremor, dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, seizures, drowsiness, loss of consciousness, respiratory depression, and abnormally low oxygen in the arteries.

Deadly really. As is the combination.

There have been several reports of everything from deaths to going psychotic and being taken to the psych ward of the nearest hospital.

It is said to be 10 times as strong as cocaine, and it lasts a lot longer.

This stuff is not a joke. And there’s a good chance it’s going to make the rounds. In other words, your kids could soon be running into it at parties, in clubs, and so on.

If someone close to you is using drugs, now is the time to get them some addiction help before they run into Ivory Wave or some of these other really dangerous substances.
