TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, June 27, (PIA) – Not done with eliminating illegal sex enhancements and shabu, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) is again confronting another head-ache: a drug that sends a user on a sexual “flying high.”

PDEA 7 director Espiridion Javier told the Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) in a joint meeting with the Regional Development Council in Bohol Thursday, that the illegal substance is a dangerous cocktail of viagra or cialis, ecstasy and shabu. 

Viagra or Cialis are drugs used to remedy erectile dysfunction; ecstasy (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) and another known stimulant shabu (methamphetamine) renders a user about 4-5 days of tireless sexual hyper-activity, sleeplessness and possible loss of appetite for food, according to Dir. Javier.

Known in party circles as “superman” or “fly high,” because of the soaring sexual it can give, the substance could also cause heart attacks, according to medical experts.

Also known as party, many believe this is owing to the pill, which could be shared by two to eight users, according to an article by Rappler.com.

Sold at P3,000 and up, fly high, Director Javier hinted, could already be in the region.

This poses another high alert status for drug operatives who have their hands full against shabu, nubain, sexual enhancement drugs, marijuana, a few cocaine and other controlled substances which are reportedly present in the region. 

With “fly high” giving 4-5 days of lack of appetite, insomnia and hyper sexual activity, medical experts said users could get ulcers for not eating, and the substance long term effects could be mental dis-orders associated with artificial high. 

As this happened, the Police Regional Office has reported a total Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) value of confiscated drugs in Bohol at P6,862,451.70, most of these shabu, with 117 operations during the reporting period. This constitutes third in the regions’ drug interdiction groups.

This figure is P300,000.00 more than the sum of drugs confiscated in Cebu City, which had P 6554,474.00 in 217 operations, according to the Regional Police Office-7. 

The entire region amassed a total confiscated drug street value of P37 million, topped by over P10 million in operations done by the Regional Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group which had 17 operations, followed by some DDB valued P8, 039,091.00 in 71 operations in Lapulapu City.
