Amphetamines are a stimulant drug. There are various types of amphetamines, like Adderall, that are prescribed to help wit conditions such as ADHD. Others types, such as meth, are highly illegal.
Effects from amphetamines can kick in at any time after taking. Some examples include:
- Teeth grinding
- Repeated scratching
- Increased sex drive
- Dry mouth and large pupils
There are various ways to take amphetamines, including injection, smoking, snorting or swallowing – and there are risks involved with each. Injection and sharing needles is extremely dangerous because there is a huge risk of spreading HIV/AIDS, Tetanus, or Hepatitis B/C. Snorting leads to the risk of bad nose bleeds.
It is also important to realize that there are extreme effects that can come as a result of use, even days after.
