you can try and get out of the contract but the burden would be on you, to show and support that as a result of the medication you did not know what you were doing at the time and were under the influence of it. If you can show this and that there was never a meeting of the minds and terms and conditions then a judge could void the contract. Of course, you also need to be able to explain the time lapse and once the medication wore off and you were aware of what you did why you did not act.
