Using meth can be extremely harmful to your body and mind over time. Crystal meth creates long-term changes in your brain that might be only partially reversible. Meth that is smoked or snorted can result in many respiratory issues, and injected meth, particularly with shared needles, puts you at risk of serious other diseases.
Effects of chronic meth use can include:
- Cardiovascular issues
- Damage to brain cells
- Excessive malnutrition
- Increased risk of stroke
- Parkinson’s disease
- Lung issues
- Major dental issues
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Nasal irritation
- Sores on the skin
- “Track marks” from injections
- Increased risk of contracting HIV and hepatitis
- Trouble sleeping
- Violent or aggressive behavior
- The 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported of people aged 12 or older, 0.9% (or about 2.6 million people) reported using methamphetamine in the past 12 months, and an estimated 0.6% (or about 1.5 million people) had a methamphetamine use disorder.
- In 2021, an estimated 0.2% of 8th graders, 0.2% of 10th graders, and 0.2% of 12th graders reported using methamphetamine in the past 12 months, according to 2021 Monitoring the Future Survey.
- In 2020, according to the CDC, approximately 23,837 people died from an overdose involving psychostimulants with abuse potential other than cocaine (primarily methamphetamine).
Behavioral symptoms include:
- Experiencing intense cravings for meth
- Trouble completing requirements at home, school, or work
- Inability to stop even after physical, mental, or interpersonal issues
- Quitting or cutting back on hobbies because of use
- Spending a lot of time getting, using, or crashing after a meth binge
- Taking more meth for longer than planned
- Using meth in dangerous situations, such as while driving
- Needing to use more meth to feel the same effects
Physical symptoms include:
- Burns on fingers or lips from smoking
- Nosebleeds from snorting
- Track marks from injecting
- Changes in eating and sleeping habits
- Dilated pupils
- Excessive energy
- Fast, rambling speech
- Scratching at skin enough to cause sores
- Significant weight loss
- Talking and moving more than usual
Cognitive symptoms include:
- Slow mental processing speed
- Difficulty with attention
- Memory issues
Psychosocial symptoms include:
- Isolating from friends and family
- Spending time with new friends
- Major, quick changes in behavior
- Mood swings
- Behavior that is aggressive or chaotic
Extreme cravings for more meth are common, which is why medically monitored detox is critical. Following short-term recovery, you may exhibit some cognitive deficits like mental processing speed, attention, memory, and planning that may not fully resolve. Research about the longer-term cognitive effects of crystal meth abuse is ongoing.
Other symptoms of meth withdrawal may include:
- Feelings of fatigue, lethargy, and excessive sleepiness
- Increased appetite
- Dry mouth
- Depression, apathy, and feelings of hopelessness
- Thoughts of suicide
- Paranoia, hallucinations, and delusions
Withdrawal symptoms are primarily psychological and emotional. Methamphetamines are fast-acting with a relatively short half-life (an average of around 10 hours).
The timeline is consistent among users:
- Withdrawal symptoms begin within the first 24 hours of abstinence
- Symptoms peak within the first 7-10 days, then decline steadily
- Average duration of symptoms is about 14-20 days, with 14 days the most reported duration
When detoxing from crystal meth, you may experience relapse and overdose. Upon relapse, many people take their usual dose taken while using, which may be too high and cause an accidental overdose.
Other medical complications and risks include:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Dangerous behavior
- Driving impairment
You are much safer at a medically monitored facility like Restored Path Detox. We’ll prescribe antipsychotic drugs and other medications to treat your symptoms should they develop. You’ll be safer from overdose and healthier in the long run with our help.
