Are the day after effects of Cocaethylene (cocaine and alcohol) and Rohypnol (roofies) similar?

There is a night that I had two weeks ago that was unlike any other, and not in a good way. I was very sick after (which I originally blamed on cocaethylene poisoning, which is what happens when you mix cocaine and alcohol) but now I'm thinking that I may have been given Rohypnol (you know, roofies). There's not a lot I've seen about any day after side effects on cocaethylene, just long term consequences so if anybody knows anything or has experience that would be great. Also, I did not post this so I could be judged-I know what I did was childish and harmful and I feel bad enough as it is, so let's leave it at that.
I went to a get-together with someone I was casually seeing a few weeks ago but on the way, us and one of his friends stopped to get some cocaine from a guy. I never had done it before, but I came with alot of crap on my mind, so I was like f it, I'll do one line. I instantly felt a buzz from it. When we got back to his house, we sat around, smoked cigarettes, and had some beers. Thing is, I didn't know that cocaine prevented you from feeling as drunk. I drank about 7 beers or so within maybe 3 to 4 hours. Normally I'd be comfortably drunk with that, but I just felt tipsy. Later on, the guy I was seeing, his friend, and I went to get more alcohol from his friend's place. He brought out rum mixed with orange juice (forgot what it's called) and wine. We had some but not a whole lot. Thing is, I don't remember A THING after that. I know that it takes a lot more than that for me to actually black out, but I blamed it on the cocaine although I don't know much about the drug. I barely even remember waking up the next morning, but it wasn't that "I drank so much last night that I still feel drunk" feeling.
I remember being in his room (not sure if that's where I ended up sleeping) and him telling me that I threw up in his bed. I didn't believe him at first because I've never thrown up-I have an iron stomach, but it was in my hair. My mind was very fuzzy so much that I don't even remember him driving me home. I felt so sick beyond any hangover I've ever felt, and I just fell asleep for hours when I got home. My friends came to my place and said they'd never seen me worse. My bra was undone and my underwear was in my pocket, something I hadn't noticed before. I had no appetite, everything either made me nauseous or actually vomit and when I did want food it was very specific. I remember feeling very dizzy and confused, and even music sounded different. All I did was sleep and throw up for the next few days (I couldn't even go to work). I remember asking on my way home what happened after we drank the rum and wine, and he said he didn't remember either. Thing about that is, it's a bit strange that we would both black out at the exact same time, considering we had unequal amounts of everything. Also, how did we make it home in one piece if he was driving unconsciously? He completely stopped talking to me that day after he dropped me off, wouldn't answer when I just said hey a few days after and now won't answer any of my questions. Just seems weird.
On the other hand, why would any of them give me roofies anyway, if I had already slept with the guy I was seeing the last time I saw him (meaning he wouldn't need to drug me) and I don't know why his friend would either. I know from what I read that the day after effects of roofies is strikingly similar to what I felt, but before I jump to any conclusions, I want to be sure that it wasn't cocaethylene poisoning. Any input would be great.
