Effects of Rohypnol and symptoms of an attack of vertigo--confusable?

Right. I've found out that the drug I want one of the characters in the piece I'm working on to be given is in fact legal and obtainable in the country where it's set, I've found out what the effects of said drug are... and now I need a piece of information that I have no idea how to search for.

The character in question (a fairly athletic fifteen-year-old boy, if that matters) has vertigo. I need to know if he could initially mistake having been dosed with Rohypnol for an attack. Looking at symptoms of vertigo and possible effects of Rohypnol, I'm guessing that it's possible, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance!
