Amp Up With Meth: Experience Psychotic Behavior, Paranoia, Aggression, Delusions, Stroke, Weight Loss, Brain Damage & Death

Methamphetamine can be smoked, snorted, taken by mouth, and injected. Meth comes in a powder form that resembles granulated crystals and in a rock form known as 'ice,' which is the smokable version of methamphetamine that came into use during the 1980s.

The effects of methamphetamine can last up to 12 hours. Side effects include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps, and shaking. During these Meth binges, users will inject as much as a gram of methamphetamine every 2 to 3 hours over several days until they run out of the drug or are too dazed to continue use.

Health Effects:

The effects of methamphetamine use can include, besides addiction, psychotic behavior and severe brain damage. Methamphetamine is highly addictive and users trying to abstain from use may suffer withdrawal symptoms that include depression, anxiety, fatigue, paranoia, aggression, and intense cravings for the drug.

Effects on the Brain:

Use of methamphetamine can cause damage to the brain that is detectable months after the use of the drug. The damage to the brain caused by methamphetamine use is similar to damage caused by Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and epilepsy.

Chronic Meth users will experience out-of-control rages that result in violent behavior, anxiety, confusion, insomnia, psychotic behavior including auditory hallucinations (hearing things), mood disturbances, delusions, and paranoia, possibly resulting in homicidal or suicidal thoughts.

Psychotic symptoms can sometimes persist for months or years after use has ceased. This is a nasty piece of work waiting for your children to discover it.

Her experiences in those classrooms revealed that most of the parolees were abusing drugs at a very young age. Her ebook on this subject covers the disastrous results of child addiction.
