    Received a call from my mom tonight saying my brother was hospitalized for suicidal ideations and possible attempt. High possibility of flakka use, he had my father lifeted way off the ground while dragging my other brother, mom, and 2 neighbors with no sign of restraint, my mom described it as super human strength while his body was super hot and every muscle locked and tensed up, also described that his eyes were completely blank and unregistering like nobody was there. Freaking out from reading about it is my brother going to be ok???? Please help

    @Taz93... I'm really sorry to hear about this situation with your brother. I will be praying for him and your entire family. Unfortunately, I have no experience with flakka, so I cannot speak intelligently about whether or not your brother will be okay. I suggest that you and your family consult an addiction specialist. They can probably give you some helpful information.

    Sending lots of healing energy your brother's way.

    Hey there. I'm sorry to hear about that and I'm sure it is scary for the whole family. I don't know much about flakka either, and I do hope that your brother can get the help that he needs. I will also pray for him and your family.

    Wish I could be of more help. Come back and share with us anytime.

    @Taz93 I don't know either on this particular substance, the fact that you described super human strength does tell me most likely it was flakka or pcp however those 2 substances have always scared theshit out of me and I have no personal experience to go off of.I do hope and pray that he makes a full recovery but unfortunately I cannot supply any intelligent information about either substance.
