Further Warnings On Party Pills
Party pills containing the ingredient Benzylpiperazine (BZP) can cause seizures, paranoia and hypothermia, and people should stay away from them altogether, the New Zealand Medical Association says.
People with a history of psychiatric illness in particular should avoid taking the pills, which should not be mixed with alcohol, other drugs or prescription medicines.
The legal status of pills containing BZP, originally developed as a drug to treat cattle with worms, is under question, and the association recommended in a statement today people should not take them until their status is determined.
