[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text uncode_shortcode_id=”242618″]Meth comes as a powder, pill or crystal and is made from a combination of pseudoephedrine (cold medicines) and household cleaners. This drug is unnatural as it is made from a combination of toxic ingredients that send the brain into extreme reactive behaviors that cause:

[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text uncode_shortcode_id=”481322″]Meth is classified as one of the more dangerous substances abused by people today. Users of methamphetamine like the rush of the drug that can last for days on a binge. For those who have social anxieties, any sense of nervousness leaves the body because of the drug’s ability to block out emotion or decision-making capabilities of the brain. The presented myth is that meth can increase physical performance however, it only increases heart rate, raises blood pressures and anxious feelings.
Methamphetamine takes the system into overdrive so the brain is unsure of what is a danger to the body, while those experiencing these binge sessions exhibit episodes resembling psychosis. When the brain is given this amount of dopamine over the course of days or weeks, unnecessary stress is added to the cardiovascular and respiratory system. Without proper nutrition and the lack of sleep that comes with methamphetamine, some users overdose or die from malnutrition and sleep deprivation.

[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text uncode_shortcode_id=”128919″]There are various arguments about the similarities of Adderall and methamphetamine and whether these drugs are considered similar or identical. The reaction or intended use for Adderall mimics those effects that methamphetamine offers users. While Adderall is a prescription drug meant for those struggling with ADHD, it too is taken for recreational use primarily by college and high school students. While Adderall increases concentration in overactive brain conditions, it calms appetite and causes a rush of dopamine and pleasing effects to the user.
When taken in extremely high doses and for extended periods of time, researchers found that the long-term effects on the body resembled methamphetamine. These drugs are classified as stimulants and regardless of prescription should be monitored or prohibited if other options for treatment are available. Addiction forms quickly in both cases and physicians recognize the highly addictive qualities of Adderall, as it is part of the amphetamine family.
