Methamphetamine is a strong Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant that is mainly used as a recreational drug. It is also called as ice, crystal, meth, chalk etc. It is generally a crystalline powder which is white, odorless and bitter tasting. 2 This drug is consumed by snorting (inhaling through the nose), smoking, injecting or by dissolving it in water or alcohol. Sometimes it is even taken orally.

1 Methamphetamine hydrochloride is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) under the trade name Desoxyn. 1 It was mainly prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity in adults and children. Even as it has medical use, it is mainly abused for recreational purposes. Once a person starts consuming Methamphetamine, a strong desire to continue the drug clings to him because it creates a false sense of happiness and well-being. 3 It is said to produce a rush of confidence, hyperactivity and energy.

When low doses of Methamphetamine is taken by an individual it can elevate the mood, increase alertness, elate concentration and provide energy for fatigued individuals. It also reduces the appetite and promotes weight loss initially. Until 1970s Methamphetamine was considered a Schedule III drug and was widely prescribed. 5 But in 1971, the United States government passed the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act which reclassified Methamphetamine and regular amphetamine as Schedule II drugs.

1 Illegal Methamphetamine has its highest prevalence in the United States, parts of Asia and Oceania. 4 A study conducted by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health in the year 2009 found that about 1.2 million Americans over the age of twelve had used crystal meth or Methamphetamine at least once in the previous year.

What it does to your body?

High doses of Methamphetamine can cause adverse effects. High dose may induce psychosis, seizures and cerebral hemorrhage. Chronic high dosage can cause rapid mood swings in the individual which in turn affects his social behavior. Illicit production of meth also contains a host of dangerous chemicals like 5 anhydrous ammonia, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, red phosphorous, lithium, sodium metal, iodine and toluene. These adverse chemicals may leave a trail in the body of the addictive person.Read more...Heroin addiction

In medical practise, methamphetamine is used for the treatment of narcolepsy, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and occasionally, for the therapy of eating disorders. Some say that methamphetamine is three times as powerful as cocaine. The mechanism of its action is so powerful that it can trigger dependency after just a few uses. It may end up changing the whole personality of a person.Having in mind the fact that methamphetamine is one of the most addictive drugs, it becomes evident that meth rehabilitation is a big challenge for the patient as well as health professionals involved in the process.
