LSD warning after woman admitted to hospital

    POLICE are warning drug users who may have taken LSD to seek medical treatment if they are feeling unwell.

    It follows the reported of a woman being admitted to hospital in a critical condition at 4.45am today.

    She was said to have suffered an apparent adverse reaction having taken the hallucinatory drug, also known as 'acid'.

    Police said although critical, initial reports from Gateshead's Queen Elizabeth Hospital suggested it was not considered to be a life threatening situation.

    A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.

    But police fear a further four or five people may also have taken drugs from the same batch at a house in the Gateshead area and may also be feeling ill.

    Superintendent Jo Farrell said: "Anyone who has taken drugs and feels unwell should seek medical attention immediately.

    "Additionally I would ask friends and family of those who were socialising in the Gateshead area last night to check on their welfare as there may be individuals who have taken drugs who are too ill to seek medical treatment.

    "Medical professionals in the area have been alerted.

    "If anyone has any information regarding this they should contact police immediately."

    Anyone with information should contact Northumbria Police, on 03456-043043, or the Crimestoppers' freephone line, anonymously, on 0800-555-111.

    Confidential drug advice is also available from NHS Direct 0845-4647.

    That's pretty fucked for the dealer... he sells LSD to the wrong woman, who likely had a panic attack/bad trip; LSD has an fantastic safety profile. now he's looking at serious charges.

    "LSD in the UK is rarely LSD. Probably DOX, usually is and I have popped 6 tabs of "acid" only to be tripping and awake for DAYS."-swim

    Man arrested after 'LSD recovered at Gateshead party'

    A man has been arrested on suspicion of drug dealing after a woman was taken ill at a party in Gateshead.

    Officers were called to Old Durham Road in the early hours of Sunday after reports the 25-year-old woman had suffered an adverse reaction to LSD.
    She was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead in a critical condition but has since recovered.

    A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing a Class A drug with intent to supply and bailed.

    A spokeman for Northumbria Police said the woman was discharged from hospital on Tuesday and no other partygoers were known to have suffered an adverse reaction to the substance.

    And that says it all! Just as EscapeDummy said:
    And it was said that the hospital didn't consider this a life threatening situation.
