Methamphetamine or meth, well-known as chalk, crystal, and ice is a strong stimulant with high potential for dependency and addiction. Meth works by prompting the brain to create greater amounts of dopamine. Dopamine is a chemical linked with reward, pleasure, motivation, and motor skills. The rapid release of dopamine produced by using meth provides users with an euphoric rush.
The first time users experiment with meth, the effects can be very powerful. However, these effects don’t last long which often causes users to use it several times in a short period of time. This type of behavior is called binging and it can actually make addictions worst.
Methamphetamines can lead to many medical concerns and cause negative reactions. Some of the most common ones are arrhythmia, high blood pressure and increase in body temperature called hyperthermia. Chest pain and high blood pressure may cause irreversible damage to the brain and heart. Long-term side effects can lead to molecular and chemical alterations to the brain which change the motor function and also the personality of the addict.
Liquid meth like most methamphetamines can produce a number of toxic effects in the user’s body which may include athetosis, a condition commonly characterized by tremors and unconscious spasms. Common side effects may include dilated pupils, irritability, talking constantly, sleeping disorders, and extreme nervousness. Other long-term negative effects of liquid meth include damage to major organs in the body which may include the lungs, liver, and kidneys. This drug may also lead the user to experience anxiety, fear, and wearisome behavioral patterns. The user may also feel homicidal or suicidal.
