What Causes Dilated Pupils While On Plexus?

default
Posted on Sat, 28 Oct 2017
Question: I was with a lady friend yesterday evening.We had first a shot of single malt and while partaking in snackes (cheeze, sauges and pita bread) each nursed a glass of the best available Cabernet. I notoiced that over the hour and a half her pupils dialated from near normal to really wide. I was concerned. I do know that she is heavily into a food suplement called Plexus - in the course of taking these supplements she has become quite - I would almost say manic - active and positive. Should I be concerned - I personally have a hunch these tings may be dangerous - is this known?

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
It is probable that she had more alcohol than her usual. This caused stimulation of the body chemicals and increased her adrenaline level. This would have led to the dilatation of the pupils. Other recreational drugs like cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine are known to produce dilatation.
There are several products made by the supplement company Plexus and some of them contain stimulants like caffeine which interact with alcohol.

Do get back to me if you have further queries.
