DASH issue warning about new substance MDPV

MDPV is a class B drug that has been cut with legal highs, leading the user in some instances to suffer prolonged panic attacks.

The Drugs and Alcohol advisory service DASH have issued a warning after a new legal high has appeared on the local market, which carries some very nasty side effects.

MDPV is a class B drug that has been mixed with many legal high substances, leading the user in some instances to suffer prolonged panic attacks.

 The legal high market is still an issue across the Isle of Man, DASH say they are still helping people who are experiencing difficulties associated with coming off drugs like Mephedrone..

One of the biggest issues people face when under the influence of MDPV, which could be circulating on the Island,  is that they continue to re-dose to prolong the effects of the comedown, this can lead to heart complications.
