What Are The Effects Of Meth?
Meth affects the brain by causing it to release large amounts of dopamine, one of the “feel-good” neurotransmitters. The effect of dopamine is the feeling of euphoria. Once the meth is no longer affecting the brain, the user experiences an extreme “low” in their mood that is hard to come back from without using meth again.
Long-term meth use can cause anxiety, insomnia, paranoia, confusion, delayed reflexes, and schizophrenia-like symptoms that won’t clear up until an individual stops using it.
How To Recognize Meth Addiction
Signs that you or a loved one may be experiencing a meth addiction include:
Huge mood swings
Lack of effectiveness in work/
