Different Forms of Meth
Methamphetamine can be smoked, ingested, inhaled, injected. The diverse ways to get high make methamphetamine more likely to be abused than most other drugs. Crystallized meth creates a euphoric high that declines over time, but often leaves the addict with lack of sleep. There are reports of people using meth to stay up for over a week while using the substance. Sleep deprived and using meth, individuals are more likely to experience hallucinations. Known cases of meth abusers and their stories of staying up for days on end report seeing friends and family members that in reality weren’t there at all. Similarly, its all too common that meth use is mis-diagnosed as schizophrenia as both share similar symptoms. Doctors that work in addiction treatments can clue in on the signs of abuse and help detox the addict to get them back to normal and mentally sound after a spout of meth abuse. Fortunately, many drug addicts that abuse methamphetamine run out of money before they can experience the hallucinogenic effect.
