Amphetamine Use, Abuse and Addiction

Amphetamine Use, Abuse and Addiction

Amphetamines are a class of stimulant, hallucinogenic and entactogen drugs which are all highly addictive and cause a multitude of harmful side effects and symptoms while under the influence of the drug.

Drugs such as ecstasy, ephedrine and methamphetamines (meth) are some recognizable forms of amphetamines. The symptoms and feelings an individual feels while under the influence of amphetamines are similar to cocaine such as euphoria and hallucinations.

Potential harmful effects of using amphetamines include:

  • Hyperthermia
  • Hyperactivity
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • Heightened body temperature
  • Sudden rise in blood pressure

All forms of amphetamines are very addictive so it is important that you reach a local drug rehab center if you are addicted to this type of drug in order to get help.

It can be tough at first going through amphetamine withdrawal symptoms but the professionals and counselors will help you quit using the drug and help you to get your life back.
