I have seen people imbibe rat poisoning. Heroine addicts who bought heroine laced with rat poisoning, which is not unheard of in heroine. They have seizures, flip out and can;t remember anything about it later.

Most rat poison uses a common blood thinner used by heart attack and stroke victims, warfarin or Coumadin. Another type of rat poison uses thallium sulfate as its active ingredient.

Some of the symptoms are similar, and because symptoms may take hours or days to appear, there may not be any way to see which type of poison was ingested.

Victims that exhibit more than one symptom from this list may have ingested one or both types of rat poison.

  • nosebleeds
  • bleeding gums
  • blood in the urine
  • bloody diarrhea
  • hair loss
  • extensive bruising
  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath


However, all of these symptoms may be caused by other conditions as well.
It is vital that you personally do not try to diagnose the victim's condition. Call 911 or call a doctor or Poison Control Center
