General Description

Methaqualone is a hypnotic and sedative  medication. In the United States it is sold under the trade name Quaalude, while in the Great Britain and South Africa the drug holds the name Mandrax. Its use reached the peak in the early 1970s, when the drug was popular as a hypnotic to treat insomnia, as a muscle relaxant and as a sedative. Along with that, methaqualone gained popularity among hippies and visitors of glam rock clubs and discos in the 1970s.

Chemically, the substance belongs to the quinazolinone class. Acting as a depressant, it increases the activity of the so called GABA receptors within a human brain and the nervous system. The increase of the GABA activity leads to the drop of the blood pressure and slowing down of both breathing and heart rate. As a result, a person experiences deep relaxation. This is namely why people initially used to buy methaqualone as a remedy for insomnia.
