Amphetamine addiction can wreak havoc on a person’s physical and psychological wellbeing, not to mention wreck their relationships and career.

The effects of Amphetamine addiction on your health includes the following symptoms:
- Accelerated heart rate and an increased blood pressure
- Unregulated body temperature, your body will run hotter than normal.
- Insomnia, or poor quality sleep
- Drastic mood swings. Because amphetamine are uppers, your mood may feel quite elevated while on the meds, but when you come off of them your depression may set in.
- When you’re on Amphetamines you will steadily see your appetite disappear. This can cause rapid weight loss.
- Depression and fatigue sets in when you are not high.
- Loss of muscle control
The longer you use the drug, the worse these symptoms get. Eventually your higher blood pressure will cause deterioration in your circulatory system, your heart and your blood vessels. Sustained higher body temperature can cause problems with your internal organs. When your appetite is suppressed for long periods of time it causes malnutrition and deterioration of muscle tissues. Malnutrition can also cause brain function loss. With the abuse of Methamphetamine the addict can also lead to loss of their teeth, psychosis including a common hallucination of bugs or something similar crawling under the skin.
