Eight people have been hospitalised after overdosing on an unknown drug on the Gold Coast.

Four men and a woman from Mermaid Beach and three men staying at Surfers Paradise were taken to hospital after suffering hallucinogenic symptoms, with one placed into an induced coma.

"The drugs that he has taken has compromised his system. We've put him in an induced coma... and he is being looked after at the hospital now," Queensland Ambulance Service supervisor Paul Young told ABC radio.
