Did "they" either one or both, suffer from anorexia?

Was it one or more persons trying to force them to take the drugs?

Are the drugs purely meant for mind altering?

Did "they" either one or both, suffer from anorexia? yes. It was probably not anorexia in the strict sense (I know that the puzzle statement might be a bit misleading in this, but I just couldn't resist). Let us say that one of them was eating much less than usual.

Was it one or more persons trying to force them to take the drugs? no

Are the drugs purely meant for mind altering? no, the drug in question was not this type of a drug

are the drugs - medcines? no in the usual sense of the word, although they are referred to as such. did you write the word like this on purpose? I do not want to nitpick at all, but there might be a wonderful coincidence. I'll explain later why I am asking

Are we talking about herbal drugs or similar?

"did you write the word like this on purpose?"
YES but I spelled it wrong - I do it to annoy Woubit.

"I do not want to nitpick at all"
Don't worry, I used to it.

"but there might be a wonderful coincidence."
Or it might be pure fluke or possibly a Freudian phenomenon

"did you write the word like this on purpose?"
YES but I spelled it wrong - I do it to annoy Woubit.
I was just wondering...I bet that when I explain at the end of the puzzle why I was making such a fuss about a misspelled word, Woubit will be delighted.

The herbal drugs:

More than one type? no, just one
Specific drug(s) relevant? it is only the overall effect of the drug which counts; the drug itself is, let us say, a secret mixture of herbs and it would be no use to search for its exact components.
