Methamphetamine is a class of amphetamines that has been used to treat ADHD and obesity. It is also known as meth, crystal meth, and speed. While it is banned in Canada, it is medically available in the United States. It is a highly addictive drug, probably more so than others.
It accelerates the central nervous system and can bring a feeling of euphoria. The negative effects include chest pain, racing heart, gastrointestinal issues, and dry mouth. In order to maintain the high, users take increasingly larger doses. Withdrawal symptoms include headaches, depression, and breathing difficulty. Crystal meth will cause hallucinations and paranoid delusions among other symptoms of psychosis as well as sudden and intense violence.
If you have noticed any of these indicators in a friend or family member, it is critical that they seek help from a qualified facility.
