Methamphetamine overdose: How much meth does it take to OD?

Is it possible to use meth and not overdose?   It’s critical you know the risks, symptoms and signs of meth overdose, especially if you or someone you know is using too much meth.  First, learn how meth works in the body.  Then, understand how meth overdose occurs.

Here, we review meth OD and the severe side effects due to meth use.  We outline the signs and complications of meth abuse, followed by prognosis and methods of treatment. Then, you can ask questions about methamphetamine abuse, how long meth stays in your system, and overdose at the end. We try to answer all legitimate meth questions personally and promptly.

How does unintentional meth overdose happen?

Methamphetamine, like all drugs, has an accepted, medicinal applications. However, meth is generally thought of as the illegal street drug version which is taken as a white crystal-like powder that can be snorted, swallowed, smoked ,or dissolved and injected directly into the body.  Unintentional meth overdose generally happens in two different ways:

1. Acute methamphetamine overdose occurs while taking high doses of meth and can result in harsh side effects, which can be extremely painful and possibly result in death.

2. Chronic methamphetamine overdose occurs when a user continues to abuse meth over a period of time resulting in many harmful physical side-effects, both temporary and permanent.

Meth overdose – How much is too much?

The amount of meth a person must take to overdose will vary depending on several factors. The weight of the user, their general health, natural immunities, and built-up resistance or tolerance to meth all factor in. What’s more, the purity of the meth itself will determine how much meth is too much.

Currently the purity of meth is considered to be quite high, between 60-90%. This means that the potency of the effect on the central nervous system (CNS) is greater than previous mixtures. Common abuse doses are between 100-1000 mg a day. Chronic binge use can be as high as 5000 mg a day.

Meth overdose complications

People who take meth generally experience a sense of euphoria. This is accompanied by increased heart rate and blood pressure, as well as the widening of the pupils. The complications, however, that can occur when taking large amounts of meth, can be extremely serious and result in permanent damage or death.  Methamphetamine overdose can result in:

  • cardiovascular problems
  • convulsions which can result in death if not treated immediately
  • high blood pressure
  • hyperthermia (a rise in body temperature)
  • irregular heartbeat
  • permanent, stroke-producing damage to small blood vessels in the brain
  • rapid heartbeat

Chronic methamphetamine abuse results in inflammation of the heart lining. Those who inject meth damage their blood vessels and cause skin abscesses. In addition, they increase their chances of protracting HIV and hepatitis B and C. This is particularly prevalent among those who re-use needles. Continued use of meth also results in progressive social and occupational deterioration.

The following represent a list of side-effects and complications methamphetamine use can result in:

  • agitation
  • chest pain
  • coma
  • complete stopping of the heart
  • difficulty breathing
  • heart attack
  • kidney damage and possibly kidney failure
  • missing and rotted teeth (called “meth mouth”)
  • paranoia
  • repeated infections
  • seizures
  • severe stomach pain
  • severe weight loss
  • skin sores (boils)
  • stroke

Psychological complications resulting from long-term meth use include:

  • severe inability to sleep (insomnia)
  • major mood swings
  • delusional behavior
  • extreme paranoia

Meth overdose prognosis

When it comes to treating a meth overdose, chances for recovery depend on several factors. First, the amount of meth ingested can affect recovery results. Second, how quickly medical treatment is administered plays a significant role in whether the user will recover.

Methamphetamine overdose death rate

It is difficult determine the number of deaths due to methamphetamine. To begin with, it would be necessary to decide if the death is directly due to an overdose of the drug itself, or due to complications. Indirectly or directly, deaths due to suicide or traffic accidents may also be considered consequences of meth abuse. However, you can learn more about statistics related to meth abuse from the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN), a public health surveillance system that monitors drug-related deaths investigated by medical examiners and coroners.

My sister was found dead in her bed with her boyfriend. Coroner said it was due to an overdose of meth. She and her boyfriend had issues. He says that she had been out the night before and returned home at approx 230am and went directly to sleep next to him in a small bed. He said he awoke at 7 am the next morning and left to get her coffee (first time ever) and when he returned at 730 to wake her he found she was dead.
This seems really suspicious.
How long does after a person does meth, if its a pm overdose, does it actually affect them?
Being that meth is an upper, would it make sane that she would come home and go directly to bed if she in fact had just taken a lethal amount?
Any help you can give is deeply appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi Judi. I am so sorry for the loss of your sister to meth. I know that you are looking for answers to understand more about her death. These very specific questions would be best addressed by a toxologist or even the coroner directly. Even if your sister’s boyfriend was present during her death, there may have been nothing he could have done to help her, especially if he was also intoxicated by meth. I hope that you can find some resolution and the peace that you are looking for around her passing. Keep in mind that after using meth over time, loss of life is always a possibility.

I had just started using meth 3 months ago and on some occasions my friend and I would go 3 days without sleep. We did this once or sometimes twice a week until the very last time, I had a frightening and severe attack.
I had been up smoking meth with only 4 hours of sleep in the last 3 days and also had consumed alcohol that evening. Normally when I smoke meth, it makes me sober and more aware of my surroundings, but this time I had a completely different feeling.
I started to feel dizzy and nauseous, I vomited and felt a lot better. It was 11pm and time for my friend to leave. As she was leaving I felt a strong feeling of paranoia come over me. I felt very light headed and short of breath but was afraid to tell her although I normally share everything with her. After she left, I felt as if I was going to faint or black out. My body felt weak and I was shaking uncontrollably. My breathing started to get faster as my heart was racing and I felt nauseous again. I started to feel as though I couldn’t breathe, then I knew I had to call my friend to come back. She sped back to my place which was 10 minutes away and found me shaking and breathing very hard. I needed to vomit again and I felt a lot better after that. During the next two hours, the feeling came back every 10-15 minutes but not as severe as the first attack. I’d make sure my friend could pull my arms and stretch them out, or do strong cupping movements on my body which I don’t know why but somehow relieved my condition a little.
When the tragic 2 hours was up I could finally rest, although I couldn’t sleep, I was able to just sit back n relax. It was very traumatizing for me and at that moment I thought that this was it, death, this is what it feels like to die struggling. After that I have vowed to never take meth again, even if it were a small amount for recreational use, I still refused to use it.
It is not worth losing your life over a drug like this!
There are some questions I would like to ask you to help me understand what I went through.
Does this sound like I had an overdose or was it due to anxiety/sleep deprivation? I was told from my friend that I was having anxiety attacks because I worried too much and had been paranoid and lack of sleep.
Why did the massage and cupping movements on my back and chest seem to help me in my situation?
Does it become more dangerous to use meth while drinking alcohol?
Am I more likely to overdose when I have been using this drug to stay awake on a longer period of time rather than the first day of using after a good sleep or whatnot?
I hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Monica. Thanks for sharing about your experience with meth. Are you considering using it again and trying to hedge your risks?

My brother is in ICU for overdose of 10 grams of meth. Had seizures,non redponsive,fluid in lungs. His hands and feet look like big swollen punching bag gloves. Will he make it through this or is this the end?????

10:56 am September 13th, 2013

Hello Katherine. I am so sorry to hear about your brother! What do the doctors say? I’d suggest that you speak with them directly about the prognosis for your brother.

I am coming to grips with the death of my husband. He was a tall man 6′ 2 large in body weight. He had High Blood pressure, took Ritalin and many other over the counter medications for reflux, Herpes ( which I gave him from my previous husband) erectile dysfunction injections….The coroner says that he had nothing wrong with his heart. The report says some congestion and oedema of the lungs, no actual amount or number. The reports also says toxicology blood methylamphetamine level of 1mg/litre with amphetamine level of 0.05mg litre. They are putting this down as cause of death..Drug overdose, accidental. I don’t believe this for one moment. There is no way. can you pleas advise if someone can overdose on such a level?… thank you

11:03 am October 23rd, 2013

Hi Michelle. You’ll need a professional opinion from a toxicologist or another coroner. I know that you’re looking for answers, so I’d suggest that you seek the best possible specialist and keep asking questions until you are satisfied. My heart goes out to you.

How do I know I’m having an overdose? I feel tired which is weird and my heart rate is pounding…I feel as though my veins in my hands are going to pop out and be exposed..I’ve smoked meth everyday for the last 3 months but I do sleep 3-4 hours a night

9:33 am December 12th, 2013

Hi basem. It’s possible that you’re experiencing hallucinations caused by long term use of meth. I would suggest that you check in with a detox clinic (by phone or by visiting) to learn more about getting off meth and avoiding long term brain damage that is caused by chronic meth use.

My boyfriend at age 27 used meth about 2-3 times a week on binges for a year. He iv’d it and usually did 1.5mg/night. Can you explain what this means for his health and ability to recover any damage ( he says he feels fine )? Also, how does his prognosis for survival look and over what period of time on average?

11:48 am December 26th, 2013

Hello Joel. Is he still using? Meth can cause long term effects to the brain and body; but the shorter the period of use, the less impact it has on the system.

i have been in and out of the hospital for about 4 month. the first time i went i was diagnosed with viral gastroenteritis. but i would still vomit after it was supposed to go away in 3 days to a week max. this was before i started to smoke meth again. second time i went (due to all the vomiting/nausea still) they said i had irritable bowel syndrome but wasn’t sure since they said there are no real tests to find out for sure. at this time was when i started to use meth again, but when i barely started again i wouldn’t have stomach pains. i then went to the hospital another time and they said my appendix was bigger then normal size, so i got it removed. recently ill have a lot of dry heaves and stomach pain. today the stomach pain was SOOOOO BAD…. i would sleep for about 30 minutes to an hour, wake up and smoke again. then my stomach pains would come back. but when i was 14-17 i would never get these stomach pains from doing meth. so im wondering do i need to go to the hospital once again or what am i supposed to do? please reply to me asap. thank you!!

8:34 pm January 2nd, 2014

Hello Timmy. I’d suggest that you definitely seek medical help. A family doctor is a good place to start, as you can get a full medical assessment and then referral to specialists, if needed. Call the ER if you need to, for sure.

Im danii im 16 and I’ve been sober for two months before last night and the night before that I an expirencing muscle spasms in having very light but hallucinations difficulty breathing and cant sleep but im too scared to tell anyone because everyone here thinks I’m still sober.

12:42 pm February 17th, 2014

Hello Dani. Relapse is common when you’re coming off meth because the cravings are so extreme. Tell on yourself! This is the only way that you can get medical attention and the psychological help that you need to get past the cravings. My best goes out to you!

Hi. I smoke meth once in a while. Like every 2 to 3 months. I also suffer from anxiety and have high blood pressure. This week I started on Thursday night and was up for 2 days with 1 hour of sleep I usually smoke and take 3 hits and won’t hit it until 6+ hours later. So come Saturday I still continue using that night I get about 3 hours of sleep keep in mind I only take no more than 3 hits and wait 6+ maybe even up to 9 hours to hit if again. On sunday I continue I feel drained my body does feel tired the last time I took a hit was at 6:30 pm. After an hour or so I start feeling weird my body is twitching my heart starts beating fast than slows Down I got bad anxiety and felt like I was having an overdose my body felt cold. And I read all about oding and felt I had the symptoms. I take alprazolam (xanax for an an anxiety I usually wait more than 6 hours to take one after I smoked and wait another while before I do it again. So after I started having those symptoms I waited 3 hours and then took xanax which kind of calmed me down. I finally got some sleep about 8 hours My question is can you overdose even though I don’t smoke every little while like other people. Was it a sign of a heart attack or stroke. Today which is Monday I woke up and had bad chest pain that felt like heart burn. It was bad and I felt a little scared and had anxiety which made me think I was having a heart attack. How long does it take for you to overdose after use? Can you overdose hours later or even have a heart attack hours later after last use?

My son was missing for 16 days in Bunbury WA last June and was found 16 days later on 12 July 2013. (Suicide :'( ). His measurements of Meth 0.04mg/1 and amphetamines 0.02mg/1 also alcohol 0.078% and bile alcohol of 0.112% were found in his body. I have no idea of levels that would have been taken. Could you please tell me if this is a high intake or low reading after such a length of time before he was found. Does it remain the same when a person passes or would those levels change? Any answers right now would be of great help as I as his mother believe he did not take his life. We smell a dirty rat and am not sure if he was drugged or in wrong place at wrong time. I look forward to your reply.

10:11 am March 17th, 2014

Hello Shiree. I am so very sorry for your loss. I’d suggest that you consult with a coroner, toxicologist, or Medical Review Officer at a diagnostic drug testing lab to get the answers to the questions you have. I wish you much love and healing to you and your family.

Shiree
9:15 am March 18th, 2014

Thank you for your quick reply. I have consulted both coroner and toxicologist and medical person, but didn’t really get the any of those answers. I just researching as much as I can so as to get some sort of sense out of this whole situation. It was certainly not in Josh’s nature at all. But think maybe he got wrapped up with the wrong people and just need to know if those levels are small amounts or large. I just trying to find some sort of closure but not sure if i really ever will :'(.

Son used 20 years (iv). Clean 61/2. had ulna nerve transposition surgery , six months after operations on both arms pain got worse than before the operation. Have been to three specialists, next to orthopedic surgeon . None of them can seem to find cause. BUT son found that his old “friend” meth takes the pain completely away. His PCP Doctor called him a liar, said there is no way meth takes pain away. I see that it does with my own two eyes,. Why does meth take the pain away, he can work like he did before the arm surgery’s. Now he wants to stop,but is so afraid of the arm pain.. Why does it take the pain away ???

my friend gave me a thick 50 unit shot at 12am friday night…the typical great rush..then 630am mixed me another shot and i did it, went cross eyed and could tell my eyes were going crazy. i started burning up couldn’t focus my eyes on anything, and my eyelids were just closing and it was really hard to stay awake. i felt like if i stood up id fall, i remember thinking i needed fresh air and to not fall asleep. i started heating up and turned all red and shaking really bad uncontrollably, after a bit i started sweating really bad. i told my friend i felt like i was dying. i tried taking a hit of weed, but could barely take one. i got really scared/paranoid i wanted to go to park, but got scared of my friend i was with. i managed to get in my car and get home…now its sunday 10am my chest is still burning and my body is still hot. my tummy in gurgling/little foamy..not sure what to do been drinking water. does this sound normal for meth overdose? im afraid it was a dirty shot and its eating my insides-its so hot inside me….

I don’t know if I’m paranoid or if I’m overdosing! I’ve been smoking meth for about 10 months. After 2 months of sobriety I relapsed last Friday the day I got out of rehab. I’ve been smoking everyday since, not eating, but I have tried to drink. I think I dehydrated myself quickly. Yesterday morning I swallowed a large piece along with smoking but I took 2 10 milligram loritab right before, about 30 minutes after swallowing I started getting stomach pains and felt extremely hot, then for the next few hours I would sweat profusely. I placed a cold towel around my neck and head and stood under the air and started feeling better after a while. I felt fine smoked some more then took a hot shower and during my shower yesterday I started sweating profusely. I could feel the sweat dropping off my face, I cooled myself down then got over heated with more activities and sweat more and couldn’t urinate a lot but when I did it was dark! Well I ate last night and slept from 10 pm til about 5 am woke up and smoked and felt fine on other than a nasty taste in my mouth. I met with a friend at a hotel, he didn’t measure it he just started filling two capsules up with meth we swallowed those, then smoked a couple of bowls. Within 2 hours I was hearing stuff outside of the hotel door I thought the police were raiding it. My stomach hurt again, I got dizzy, extremely shaky, started seeing spots, everything sounded like mumbling to me. The guy I was with went into a daze as soon as I was coming out of mine a little, he was staring off and if I asked him if he was OK he would only mumble about a shirt and stare blankly beside me and his hands and arms were jerking. It scared the crap out of me. He snapped out of it after about 10 minutes. I somehow drove myself back home shaking very badly the whole time with a cold towel around my neck and my air on high and I was still burning up. My husband found me in my car shaking barely able to walk, any movement would instantly heat my insides up. I was having numbness in my arms and legs, I drank more and ate more thru out the day had Luke warm shower that seemed to help some. Then I started having chest pain, but it felt like indigestion almost. I have felt a lot better for several hours now and haven’t smoked or ingested meth in any way in almost 17 hours and all of a sudden I keep feeling these small bugs fly or crawl on me, I haven’t seen one yet but I can only feel them, my husband says I’m still high and paranoid. But wouldn’t I have been paranoid long ago, not now almost 17 hours later my temperature is low, I’ve urinated at least 3 good times that I can remember, now I’m hearing keys jingle outside of my bedroom door and thought something just flew past me into the corner on my bed. I keep biting on the sides of my tongue it’s almost like it’s swollen. I keep telling myself I’m seeing and hearing stuff. But see I just heard a tapon my bedroom window and my bathroom fan cane on someone us messing with me. Someone I gotta go now when I find out who it was I’ll sey them on fi

I have recently befriended a guy who smokes meth regularly and is also a very heavy user. On 5 occasions; usually at the end of the week(on a friday) we have smoked Crystal meth together. It is the first time I have ever tried it, however, its been every friday for the last 4 or 5 weeks (I only smoke less than a point at a time, maybe a little above a point on two different fridays). I am finding myself craving it during the week and also very depressed whilst no on it, although at the end of the week I know that I possibly might meet up with this guy and theres a good chance we will smoke it. I am 32 years old, a husband and a father to a 18 month old. I feel ashamed that I am doing this as well feeling like a failure for even letting this carry on, and I hope that I can just stop and return to normal life. Every week I say I will cut all ties with this guy and not take his calls but every week I give in to temptation and meet up with him ( I have no clue on how to buy the meth, this guy usually gets it for me). I ask myself am I an addict already? is there a way out of this? Once I do cut this guy out of my life, what if I start scoring meth on my own? I love my family very much and my son is my entire world, I just feel like such a weak failure for doing this. Can somebody please give me some advice?

9:51 am June 30th, 2014

Hi Bill. Obsessing over a drug and craving it are signs of addiction. It’s a good thing you are aware of your behavior. Hold on to the light spot in your life, your family, and make every effort, with every single thought and refrain from using EVER again! Do you need help finding a support group or treatment near you?

Hello, my daughters father is/was on meth. I started noticing he would be up all night all week long, then come the weekend he would just sleep all day and all night…I started noticing weird things he was doing and thought maybe he was affected by the meth from his teenage yrs. (Note:I knew NOTHING about drugs period) So, I started researching the after affects of meth but everything that I found showed to be effects while on it! Then I found evidence of meth and confronted him with it.. telling him I would help him thru this, but he had to move out until he was clean… now it has been 2 years later, I’ve given him 4 drug test…3 of them showed positive for meth. Now it has been about 6-7 months, he continues to tell me he’s clean, hasn’t done any but has refused a drug test for the past 6 to 7 months… his face still looks sunk in which is not his look at all, other than that I’m not around him enough to tell. He hasn’t went anywhere for help, he said he is strong enough to stop his self. I need to know how do I tell he is off drugs.. he wants to have his daughter for the weekend and he also wants us to have a relationship together. I’m so afraid he isn’t off of meth or will go back.

Ok well here goes my story…… My brother came home from doing over five years in the Feds well when he came home he started using meth again. One of the first times I saw him act super crazy was around last summer he came home from the Feds in February so he had been home a good six months anyways he was living with his girl friend and I went over there to visit him. He called me to the bedroom and was like Nikky did you see that … I was like see what … Then he was like that and hoped down looking under the bed then he jumped up real quick looking in the closet and was like that you see it don’t you…. I was puzzled cause I didn’t see anything and was like uhhh no I don’t know what your talking about then he looked under the bed and jumped up to the closet again and was like like that you see it don’t you I still didn’t see anything and was like naw your tripping dawg there’s nothing there and walked out the room….. Anthor occasion I can remember is that he was talking his girl friend to work and dropped her off me and my friend went with him so I could drive since he didn’t have incense well on the way back to the house he made me turn around and go back to her job made us sit outside in the heat for like fifteen minutes claiming some dude was coming up there to pick his girl friend up and that she does it everyday but today he was going to catch him well finally I got fed up with it and was like I gotta take my friend back to his truck he ended up making my drive back and forth about ten times I would only get about a mile down the street each time making me go back to her job site. Claiming I was in on it too. Cause I won’t turn around and everything. The poor girl didn’t have no dude meeting her and leaving with him at her job or anything she was working. That’s all. He was just tripping. He threatened to tie me up with rope and duck tape if I didn’t go with him but I just walked up to the house where his homeboy who is a pretty big dude was at and told him I wasn’t going with him and I was staying there. Ok anthor time my brother showed out I was hanging out at a normal spot my homegirls works at kicking it with her while she worked and outta no where he came walking through the door well he doesn’t do very well in public esp on meth because everyone is always looking at him cause he had tats everywhere even on his face so when he’s on meth and everyone staring at him it makes him really pynorid well this time the thought all his friends where plotting to Robb him so he walked a good ten miles back to where I was and he ended up staying with me so I could get him a ride back to his girlfriend house well he stopped by the store and bought two glass bottles I guess I hit someone with that messed with him. On the ride home he freaked me out I wasn’t sure if he was wanting to hit me in the face or my homeboy in the passenger sit in the head with the glass but he def wanted to hit one of us I never been so glad to get him out the car as I was that day. Hummm not towards the end of the summer it started getting horrible well remember I said he had been in jail for a good five years and you know tha around the time google tarted being popular so he had no idea. So when he found out about google it really fucked him up. Then he started claiming that when he was in prison they inserted a chip in his chest that had the answeres to the whole world and he was the only one with this chop and not they wanted it back. Every time a airplane or helocopter flew over him her would scream in pain grabbing his chest. He thought they had a magnet and was trying to suck the chip outa him he once even wrapped himself in tin foil so they couldn’t get the chip. After the plane would fly by he would always grab my finger put it in his ear and ask me if I felt that sometimes I would have to agree although I didn’t feel anything because I started noticing that when I didn’t agree with him he would start to shut me out only if I agreed with him would he allow me to know a little more about wha was going on with him and what he was going through. Onetime he walked out my fathers house with his arms up serenading to a pretend army then asked me to take him to a friends house and I was like yeah cause I was leaving anyways. Pulling out the drive way he wanted me to go the long way to his friends house cause the army was the other way I refused tho and ended up putting him out by this church half way there cause he told me too and the whole time when he got out the car he had his arms up walking to the church running like he was going to se render himself. Anyways he once got into this fight with the police man at the store and was whooping him when two other men jumped in on him one hitting him with a wrench and he went to the hostipal to get evaluated I went to the hospital to visit him and he was locked in a room by this self they had to knock on the door first letting him know I was there and asked if it was ok for me to come see him. He was like yeah when I walked in the room it took everything I had to hold back the tears and I don’t cry often anyways he looked like one of those crazy people in the crazy hospital on them lifetimes movies. All he kept doing was showing me his elbows tht where scratch up telling me thy they put notches in him that they put notches in him and for me to look and did I see….. Oh yeah I almost forgot one day we where at my fathers house and I seriously thought he was just fucking with me but he told me to go get him a needle my child is a diabetic so we have needles well I thought there is noway he could be shooting up as a child he was so scared of needles it was crazy I remember my mom having to hold him down in a figurative eight just to prick his finger well I told him that if he wanted one he better go get it his self well he did then he told me to hold the door cause the lock was broken well I was like no if you want the door locked you hold it your self and walked out the room to outside to smoke a cigarette well I figured he was just throbbing for attention and he wasn’t seriously shooting up. Until he ran out side with the needle and empty sack and throw them at me telling me to do something with them that’s when I checked the needle and yep there was blood inside the needle so he had been shooting up that’s why he had been acting so crazy. Well this is what I believe had happened to him I think that say sometimes he maybe would eat a gram of dope and it would fuck him up well I believe he thought that since he could eat that much that he could shoot that much also and has done shoot up way to much which fucked with his chemical balance and now he has meth phoytosis. Even if he’s off meth he’s still not normal anymore he’s still not my brother. So my question for you is is it possible that if you shoot up to much meth that you could possibly go insane and never be normal again because he been in jail for the whole getting in a fight with the police man incident for about four months now he still isn’t normal.

Hi Nicole. Scientists and researchers have linked chronic and long term methamphetamine abuse to significant brain changes and tissue damage. MRI scans of individuals who are methamphetamine addicts show distinct cell loss in particular regions, including the limbic and hippocampus.

Long term, chronic users of methamphetamine are known to have difficulty in memory retention but also exhibit symptoms similar to bipolar, schizophrenia and movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.

I have currently been using Crystal Meth for about the past 20HOURS…. I think I have been dehydrated through most of this experience, an I am starting to get all shaky an my eyesight hasn’t just changed slightly, it’s becoming to where I can’t ignore it because the only thing my eyes can really been able to look at more often but not anywhere close to what I’m supposed to see. I am starting to become a little worried now that I am extremely shaky an experiencing myself losing my ability to control my vision even though I know it’s not supposed to be all smeared N starting to have colors mesh together in a way that it looks like everything is starting to become just one big blur of colors that are all mixed together could I be feeling signs of a overdose right now, how badly will this, or how possible is it that this is possibly affecting and/or eating away and deteriorating “Central Nervous System”?? Having such a bad reaction an unique experience feeling that makes me think “Common Sense”, if you have done this numerous times & is new to You this far down, that’s MOST LIKELY A BIG RED FLAG that this is probably made with worse shit & if You keep rolling the dice on whether you get the stuff properly made, (An just having no care if it’s you that gets turned into News Coverage, or ANOTHER MOVIE ABOUT DRUG ADDICTION, An having to make your family go through that, an make themselves believe you had been shown Mercy by GOD, & don’t have to wake up every morning feeling like nothing is real, or have nightmares, You escape what every addict most likely dreads of ever being “The one that thinks it couldn’t EVER be a road her life would have greater than or equal to any other addicts chance, an in a split second Your life could be irreparable and be experiencing what anyone could cause ANYBODY to have Nightmare about irreversible affects that changed your life forever an will never experience life at its peak….

Has anxiety , slight paranoia and depression also. Cant go back to work. Is this normal comedown? He is sleeping around4-6 hours a nite. He is eating some not alot but enough.

hello so I have been on a little binger with meth lately to keep me goin while I work these doubles at work and so I started my period and with that came cramps bad ones this time and I decided to take midol. they were so bad I took 4 midol in the am then around 4 later that day 8.5 hrs later I took 2 more midol pills all while getting high on meth. I seemed to OD on midol I had a extreme reaction at work and had to leave. I don’t know if it was the combination of the two or if it was just the midol intake in such short time. its the next day now and im wanting to get high but not die. so I guess I want to know if mixing the two would be fatal?

We found my dad dead on Monday night from meth overdose (injection). He died Friday night/saturday morning and wasnt found for 3 days. We know it was unintentional because he had 3 syringes already filled with meth (one was already taken and the other 2 were for later). Unfortunately the first one killed him. Im trying to come to terms with his VERY preventable death but its really hard. I just want to know if he suffered while he was dying and what he was going through in those moments of overdose. Thanks.

Hello Bianca. I understand from what I’m reading in your post, it’s a tough situation. Methamphertamine is not easily put under controll and it’s not easy to quit. She can recover from her meth addiction using both, inpatient and outpatient treatment programs. She might be needing to go to a safe retreat, far away from everything. There is also the option to do daily check-ins or follow through a day treatment program.

My husband passed away on March 30th in our home while it was just he and I there. I did CPR for 36 minutes before the ambulance arrived breaking 8 of his ribs in the process. His death certificate stayed cause of death as acute methamphetamine toxicity with altherior schlorosis as secondary contributor. Said he had 0.19 methamphetamine and 0.06 amphetamine. First off what is the difference in methamphetamine and amphetamine? And the 0.19 % what is the limit?

Is it bad to smoke it a few times times a month? Im not addicted at all to meth but the past 2 months Ive had it 1 night each week (on the weekend as a binge) and have a .4/5g rock. Ive stopped now because I hate the side effects of over-production of oil on my face, not so much boils but i get indeed pimply which I find so f**king disgusting and not to mention how screwed up my tongue gets haha. I find it such a dirty drug, but I can understand how people get hooked on the stuff. Am i doing fatal long term damage to my brain, or will my brain recover.

11:42 am September 13th, 2014

to the people complaining of having a headache and vomiting ….. im not a doctor or anything but more than likely (my personal opinion) of having a headache after any type of meth use esp after smoking is because someone has put some type of cut/ flex on it and that will normally tend to make your head hurt and also it will make you fill real irritable (1.having or showing a tendency to be easily annoyed or made angry: “she was tired and irritable”)
NOT POSTIVE if that’s your case but normally a headache is the cause of cut being put on the meth I not to sure about the whole vomiting situation tho …. and again this isn’t a proven fact just what I believe

nichole
11:54 am September 13th, 2014

Jason my best advise to you is since you believe that you can step away now …. why don’t you go ahead and do it …step away … meth ruins so many peoples lifes… and it will seriously go from you having everything and just starting the drug then next thing you know outta no where TINA will grab you by the ankles and before you know it you will loose everything by the time shes through with you …. so seriously while you think you can walk away go ahead and do it before you cant walk away anymore ….

I began breathing as if I had an asthma attack then I stumbled to the fan still trying to breathe I felt as if I couldn’t hold on , every cold glass of water was as if it would revive me it went on for about 8 minutes of complicated breathing , please someone tell me what happened ???

I’ve been smoking meth off and on for about 8 years I’ve noticed in the past 4 weeks that I get extreme chest and back pains mostly in my upper left back side I’m very concerned about this because it started from my back and now I get these weird left leg and left arm cramps sometimes a numbness feeling or sometimes sharp pains in my back and chest sometimes I feel dizziness and almost a faint like feeling its got me so concerned that I’ve looked up different types of symptoms that can cause these pains they basically resulted in heart failure heart disease heart attack so I’m very scared I was also told about a year and a half ago that I was a pre diabetic and I didn’t do anything to really treat this condition but after hearing that those symptoms could also do with the heart I been wishing that it’s only diabetic symptoms which is also scary I need help I also been a long-term cigarette smoker weed smoker and I occasionally drink but I’ve been doing that for a long time and just yesterday I decided to flush the stash I’ve quit meth before numerous times but the thing that’s hard for me is staying off it for a. Of time I always tend to go back to the abuse after a few weeks or a couple days and the cigarette smoking I would say is my hardest habit to kick I’ve been smoking cigarettes for around 14 to 15 years and round a pack a day I notice now when I do physical work I start feeling these weird pains in my chest and have trouble breathing it usually starts as a heavy feeling in my chest due to sharp pains my left hand starts cramping up in my bones start feeling numb and stiff I want to get treated for these weird symptoms but I have no insurance I’m wondering if I should just walk into the hospital and discuss my problem but I really need your advice on what it is I should do please help me

I am not a drug user but the other night for some stupid reason allowed myself to get shot up with meth. It was way too much and I thought I was going to die. it took 16hrs for those negative symptoms to go away. since then I keep getting hot and cold , nausea, diarrhea and just really feel sick. Can I be dope sick? and what do I do about it? not experienced with this kind of stuff.

12:39 am November 7th, 2014

I’ve been injecting meth for a long time now and I can say that the hot feeling you get after smoking or injection is usually whatever they used to cut the meth with before you got it. Who knows who actually cut it.
Anyways usually Niacin, Epson Salt, MSN(Pills for the joints in farm animals) it all cracks back and breaksdown.
Always taste your meth before you use it if it has a cold feel fo your tounge then its cut which is cut. Keep in mind meth does taste horrible. And if someone has lost their life due to Meth shot it was probably a hot shot which could be anything never let anyone make your shot up for you. If you can’t do it yourself then you don’t need to be doing it. When it comes to drugs remember that you can’t trust your best friends not even yourself sometimes.

amanda
12:48 am November 7th, 2014

People even use baby laxative to cut it with also and vitablend. VitaBlend makes me break out in a rash that goes away shortly and is really not a big deal. It’s no worse then the drug your doing anyways. And doing too much resulting with you over amping your heart when your eyes roll around and shake your whole body shakes and gets hot. Etc. Yes get thrown in a cold shower clothes on whatever it might save your life. If their flopping on the ground due to over amping, if you have what it takes or if u really want to help them not die you should try everything and I saved my best friends life this way is to stick an ice cube up their just like a rectal thermometer. They will snap right out of it. Only in extreme cases where they wouldnt be able to stop you should you attempt it. Getting too hot of temperature is deadly.

3:16 am January 5th, 2015

Ok so I have plenty (years) of experience with meth, glass, ice. Been off of it for a few years and recently started dabbling. Got a half g a little while ago and shot about a quarter of it, all is going well until five minutes in I get the worst pounding headache I’ve ever had, no exaggeration. Take my blood pressure and it’s 230/127, pulse 60.waited 10 minutes, now it’s 210/123, pulse 58. The headache is finally starting to subside. What the hell made me react so strongly? Other than that, it just felt like a run of the mill medium size shot. Anyone got any feedback?

P.S. Forgot to mention, took 2mg xanax right before doing it and a few hits of dro. Also am on methadone maintenance, 100mg/day, but haven’t taken any today.

Hi Destiny. You can Call the free number of the Poison Control Center:1-800-222-1222, to talk to a poison expert and get advise on what you should do next. If anyone can drive you to the hospital, that would be great because you need medical help.

I have read all of the content listed here. I’ve been using meth on and off for around 18 years. The old stuff, crank never had any serious side affect to other than losing weight and not eating. The meth came out and it wasn’t that bad. It didn’t last as long and you knew what it was being made with. But ever since the crack down on Sudafed has made it almost impossible for local manufacturers to produce the good clean meth. Now it’s being g made in Mexico. And it’s dirty and it being made from ingredients that are cause me to feel sick. And other users ha e said the same thing. Plus the stage thing is that I have gone from 15 lb when I was clean to 197 lbs while using. So I would like to k ow what chemicals those Mexicans are using to manufacture 5 his new product.

Also does anyone know if the rumor about heroine being added to the meth In order to get people addicted quicker

Smoking meth has been a rollercoaster
Never know when you’re done and when you realize that you lost it all, and your family, pulls away, cause they don’t understand you, nor do they know how too fix it, stressed out, lost in confused, body aches, and when your out and broke your sleeping all day, or trying too find a way to get high, it’s not all cracked out t o what people o please say. It’s not attractive, causes reality, important distractions, feelings of no go p e,love,support, and can’t trust anyone who is always playing games with your head, telling YOU your tripping, etc I. Regret ever trying it.

1:55 am February 18th, 2015

Sorry! I accidentally dropped my phone and hit enter. The first thing I like to do on this stuff is get naked. That is actually the only time I feel comfortable to walk around the house naked. It just makes you feel like you don’t have a care in the world. It’s fantastic, isn’t I?

I get my boyfriend out of bed and we start messing around. I am feeling much more loaded than normal, but I was just enjoying the moment and playing around. Suddenly, I started feeling very sick to my stomach. I told him we had to take a break and we would pick it back up later.

I started violently vomiting and I am starting to think I overdosed. I am sweating like crazy and I was having to go outside in the 20 degree weather just to cool down. I normally only take 4 to 6 hits off the pipe at a time. That is usually how much it takes to give me a head rush, my favorite part. And usually it would take us both a couple of hours to smoke a whole gram out of the pipe. As you can probably tell the biggest problem is that I am a light weight. I downed my hot tea pretty quick with the one gram in it, because it tasted so bad. I wanted to get it over with. I think I drank the meth about 3 pm in the afternoon. I was feeling nauseous but that was pretty normal to me, but I haven’t ever gotten violently ill ike that. I had just lost my job, hence the reason for the binge. I told my boyfriend that I felt like I was dying. I am not a type of person to go to the ER, unless I really feel like I need it. Everyone that knows me, knows that I am in really bad shape if I want to go to the ER. I talked myself out of going because I was ashamed of my drug use. The worst part (and the scariest) was that the more time that passed, the sicker I continued to get. I felt like death. I wanted to die. I remember telling my boyfriend that it had been 12 or 13 hours since I drank that stuff. I hadn’t done anymore meth. I was still very high, but I couldn’t leave the toilet. I wanted to be ready whenever it was ready to come back up. Today, more than 24 hours later, I am still pretty nauseous, but I no longer feel like I am dying.

Can someone who is moreexperienced with this stuff than me please tell me what was happening? Does it sound like I overdosed? I just like to educate myself so that I learn from my experiences. Is consuming one gram all at one time even enough to be considered an overdose? Does it sound like I was ever in any real danger?

I am only asking because I like to know what I did wrong so that I don’t intentionally do it again. My other symptoms besides the severe nausea and the vomiting was stabbing pains in my actual stomach area. They weren’t like gas pains. It really hurt. Like the stuff was eating me up from the inside out. I was sweating profusely and the normal feeling of it feeling like my heart is going to pump out of my chest.

Even now, 24 hours later, I stI’ll am feeling some of the effects in my head. Does that make sense? That feeling you get inside your head that let’s you know you are high. I normally wouldn’t have taken 3 hours to post all of these details, but for some reason I always think I have to make sure you have the full story so that you can picture it in your mind. You guys do that too, right? When you are high it takes forever to tell a story because you can’t leave out any details. Or you are in the middle of telling a story and you suddenly forget what you were saying? Seriously, isn’t it a little concerning that I am still feeling the effects of my high from yesterday, more than 24 hours later? That is starting to worry me. Plus, I can’t get rid of the nausea. Any tips to help me feel better would be great.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP OR RECOVERY SUGGESTIONS YOU THROW MY WAY. YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL THAT I AM STILL KIND OF NEW TO THIS STUFF. I DON’T EXACTLY WANT TO DIE AND LEARN MY KIDS HERE ON THIS EARTH ALONE.

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER, PLEASE RESPOND TO THE FIRST POST WHERE I WAS TALK ING ABOUT GETTING HELP FOR MY BOYFRIEND. HE IS WAY WORSE OFF THAN ME. I NEED KNOW WHAT I CAN DO TO HELP HIM. HE IS READY FOR HELP. WE HAD A LONG TALK ABOUT IT AND HOW MUCH DAMAGE IT IS DOING TO HIS MENTAL HEALTH AND HIS BODY. I NEVER DID THE STUFF WITH OUT HIM BY MY SIDE. YET, HE WOULD LIED TO ME ALL THE TIME THAT HE WASN’THE DOING IT WHEN HE WAS STILL SHOOTING UP. WHEN HE FINALLY TOLD ME THE TRUTH, I WAS SO HURT, BECAUSE I THOUGHT WE WERE ALWAYS HONEST WITH KEACH OTHER BECAUSE WE ARE LITERALLY EACH OTHER BEST FRIEND. I KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS ARE THINKING. THAT THIS GUY SOUNDS LIKE HE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS GIRL OR WHATEVER. YEA, I HAVE HEAR IT ALL BEFORE. I HAVE TO HELP HIM AND TRY MY BEST TO SAVE HIS LIFE. I COULDN’T LIVE WITH MYSELF AND SOMETHING HAPPENED TO HIM AFTER I HAD GIVEN UP ON HIM. NO WAY! PLUS, I HONESTLY BELIVE THAT WE ARE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER. WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN THERE SO MUCH FOR EACH OTHER AND HELPED ONE ANOTHER THROW DIFFICULT TIMES. I AM DESPERATE. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME HELP HIM. I AM AFRAID IT’S ALMOST TOO LATE. I AM THINKING THE DAMAGE TO HIS BRAIN AND HOW WE PROCESS OUR THOUGHTS IS ALREADY DAMAGE BY THE METH. BUT MAYBE IT CAN STILL REPAIR ITSELF.

It’s been 4 days since my last use. It was probably my 10th time smoking meth. I just started in December. Anyways, I smoked pretty heavy with people who been using way longer than me. I remember taking the 1st hit I started feeling weird head pressure but kept on smoking.This was around from 10pm to 12 am when we started. And later on my jaw was clenching and I kept on grinding my teeth. I think we stopped at 7 or 8 am. We alson smoked alot of bud and drank a few beers. So once I get home I go to my room thinking its going to be a regular come down where I just lock myself in the room for the rest of the day. My heart is racing and the pressure in my head is even worst. I try to calm myself down but I can’t. I go to the bathroom and my pupils are dilated. I tried taking a shower. Still nothing works and I feel like my head is going to explode. I tell my mom and she starts yelling at me. I tell her to call the ambulance and they calm and the checked me heart rate and all that. They didn’t do much but say if we take you in there not gonna do anything. They said I just have to wait it out. So I say ok and stayed outsude once they left but the problem persisted. It felt like it was getting worst. So I decided I wanted to go the emergency. My mom gets the neighbor to take me. I start bugging out in the car saying fuck I don’t want to die like this, please lord. I can fight this. So we get there I make a big scene and they immediately take me in. I told them what I did. They were rude yelling at me to calm down it’s cause I did meth. I felt my head get tight and my eyes went blur when they helped me up and said they was going to transfer me to a hospital cause apparently my neighbor took me to some clinic. So Now I’m in the back of the ambulance freaking out talking to the guy with me. Asking him if I’m going to die and every time I feel myself about to fade out I would yell and move around saying no not like this, not like this. Please god not like this. He kept telling me I wasn’t going to die. But I seen that unsure look in face and it didn’t help. I finally make it to the hospital. They get me in the bed and they are all calm and seem not to care. I started to feel my jaw lock and my whole face go numb. It was hard for me to talk. I had to really calm myself down but the feeling in my head wouldn’t go away and that made me worry more and more that my heart wouldn’t stop beating fast. They gave me some ativan through iv and something else through iv and some pills. I even got a cat scan and they said my head was fine. They discharged me later on at night. I was still feeling the pressure in my head and short of breath. I got some sleep but the head pressure woke me up at 4 am and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I went back to the emergency 2 days later because I was feeling the same way. I had to calm myself down in the taxi. The taxi driver was getting freaked out saying I can stop and call the ambulance. I said no cause that’s just going to waste time. I took deep breathes and it worked. My heart wasn’t beating as fast but the head pressure was still there it would come bad like It felt like my head was going to give or explode. It didn’t really hurt like that. It would just freak me out cause it made me think I could have a stroke and collapse any moment. My vein my left wrist felt like popping too every here and there. My leg would get tingling and kind of numb. So would my arm. I made it to the hospital tho. They did absolutely nothing but check my heart rate and pulse and told me theres no need to check you again. That I have to wait it out. Would guy even told me to ask about a drug facility to send me too. In fact he was about the nicest one. He actually help me out the taxi in a wheel chair cause I was still kind of shaky and felt like I couldn’t walk. He asked me how old I was and I told him. He said I was still young. My brain will heal quicker than his if he was in my situation. So I called the taxi again to go back home. My mom continue to give me lectures. I was still kind of freaking out in the kitchen and she tried helping me look up rehab drug facilities. I found a few they were all closed by that time. I kept getting transferred to different people. I got transferred to this one guy who was cool and nice. I told him about my head and if it’s normal. He said it can affect everybody different . That it could be from congestion. To make sure I eat, drink lots of water and get some rest. He even gave me his personal phone number if I ever needed to talk because he use to be a meth addict. It felt good talking about it with somebody. I wish I had somebody here to talk to about this. My mom and everybody is just into there own thing and I’m here worried. I guess it’s how it’s got to be. I put myself in this position. It’s been 4 days that I’ve been feeling this head pressure and it’s keeping me from doing things. I missed work 2 days already. Last night I couldn’t sleeping cause I could feel my brain pumping like a heart if that makes any sense. I really don’t know how to describe it. I’m never doing meth again. I just want to feel like myself again. Is there anybody who is feeling the same way cause I can’t find anybody with the same symptoms as me.

Hi, I’ve git a few questions. To start with I did meth fire a few months at a time and would quit about 9 years ago. But recently I’ve smoked it 3 separate days and just the one day. But everytime I do smoke k it I will get sudden nauseated feelings then puke and would almost feel better right after. I also take methadone daily due to addiction to 30mg Percoce. My daily dose of the methadone is 90 mgs once in the morning. My husband had only dune meth one before in his life 12 to 14 years ago and he also did meth with me these last 3 times hes also on the methadone but only takes 30 mgs once daily. He alsogets the same nauseated feeling and puking. Nobody else around its feels that way from it at all. So is our nauseah due to methadone with meth? What can happen from taking the two drugs h together? Can it make you overdose easier? I also took only 20 to 30 mgs of the methadone the first two times. We both also have trouble breathing a little bit we both break out in blotchy like rashes on our face, our jointz start to hurt and hands and feet get really really cold. My eyez get really ted and dry and hurt real bad but nobody else tends to have any of these symptoms except the joints hurting and cold hands and feet. Why are we having every single one of the same symptoms as one ? It’s if we fu decide to ever use again how do we know when we have had enough so we can’t do to much again we smoke it or rarely snort it

RAUL im going thru the same thing the head pressure, tingling wont go away & its been 2 days!! I went to the ER cause i was sure I was having a heart attack, they gave me iv fluids & medicine but sent me home, apparently I had a major panic attack. Now that was yesterday, tonight the same Things are happening. Bad head pressure, ears ringing, feet & leg tingling & i Cant Sleep!! I did sleep a few hours when I came home. My Jaw feels Like its trying to lock & hallucinating a little But not bad just out of the corner of my eyes kinda thing. Probably due to only A few hours sleep in 5 days. I binged for 3, injected Way Too Much in the last shot. (Reason why I stopped) never had these affects before & am worried about it being long term damage so Im Definitely Never doing meth Again. But my Question would be Is This just Irreversible damage from using Meth??

My Son 47 had bleeding disease since age 9. Last 10 years numerous transfusions. Dec 17 2014 Hospitalized 6 days with 3.2 hemoglobin. (not unusual) He left after 6 days AMA because he wanted to go home for Christmas and they couldn’t find enough blood. His hemo was most likely around 6 or 7 but I haven’t found out. It may have been lower. He rarely left his house and I know he had been home sleeping 80% of the time for the past week and a half. He had an apt with his Hematologist on Feb 10th or llth but when time to go he said no, too tired and went back to sleep. later he called to make another appt.which would have been Wed Feb 19th. On the 10th,11th 12th he was gray with bluish lips and slept most of time. Something happened at home and I woke him up around noon or 12:30 e to tell him. He got up and came out to LR where we talked a bit and I went out the back but there were two other people there. He went into kitchen and made sandwich. His brothers gf was there. Ten min later she called and said he was unresponsive. He was sitting back on his bed leaning back against the wall, his sandwich laying on his chest with one bite out of it. I knew he was “gone” Tried to revive him and brothers gf called fire dept. They worked on him for a long time and transported to Hosp where they kept working. never go a heartbeat.. They gave me the choice to quit working on him. I said good bye. knowing he wasn’t coming back. Coroners office came over to my home . Toxicology was Alcohol 0% Amphetamines (detected) Methamphetamines LC,MS,MS 0.328 mg/L Amphetamine ,LC,MS,MS 0.094 Cannabinoids detected (he had RX for this) From his illness over 37 years and Colon Can and several other surgeries he had enlarged heart (moderately) I think his heart just stopped because his hemoglobin was so low.and had dropped in last 7 weeks more. He had NO ENERGY for weeks, wasn’t perspiring, no discomfort, yet Coroners office said he died of a massive OD of Meth because it was so High in tests. blood was drawn following morning. Lab told me it wasn’t absolutely so high that was the primary cause of death. Please give me your opinion on amount in system.They didn’t even find lesions in body during atopsy and I showed them doctors statements that he had a disease and had numerous lesions through his body. His disease Osler Weber Rendu. Lesions can be anywhere in body including brain or kidneys. (I don’t think he had them there. He had been so sick the past few years I think they just went by what he looked like.

after smoking heavy amounts of meth my body goes really weak and when i stand up i have to hold onto something or sit back down because i will pass out. I get very nauseous after smoking alot and i don’t know if its an overdose? a couple times i have had mini body spasms almost like a seizure but shorter and not as extreme. for each session it can range from 2-4 grams and i will/can stay up for days without sleep and food. The last few times i have felt so sick i couldn’t even move and couldn’t stand up without fainting. is this an overdose or just an effect of using too much too often?? i’m 5’1 and about 115 pounds.

Hi.. So in 2013 I had swallowed about 2 grams of ice. I was stopped by the police and I had it in my mouth. It was either go to jail or chew it all into my gum that I had in my mouth too.. Well they let me leave about 10 to 20 minutes later I couldn’t sit down and felt I needed some fresh air. So I went outside and shortly after began feeling my heart race and felt the sweat. I then called 911. As I got into the ambulance my body was moving and I couldn’t control it. They gave me an iv with water I’m thinking. Then I looked out the door after a little while and seen a hand sanitizer box on the wall it seemed too move a little. But never really paid no mind too it. I fell asleep. As I woke up the doctor said that I could leave and go home, and asked if I need a ride home. I told him no I don’t live that far from the hospital. Then I’m sure I blacked out. And when I came out of the black out stage I was back at the hospital trying too check my self in again because the receptionist stated that I just left there. Then I blacked out again I think because I woke up in a different hospital a few miles away. But when I woke up I was in the hospital bed but seemed like I was sleeping while standing and looking down at the t.v. like the building was turned on its side. So I grabbed the side bars on the bed and picked my head up and looked at the door then as I did I was laying down normal. It had done the same about 3 different times. As I left the hospital I went hone but the first night was bad like I seen people running after me plants turning into little people poles moving and yelling. I’m a man but that was some crazy stuff. Now even tho its been a year and a half too 2 years ago I always check my palse thinking I’m having a heart attack I just want too be myself again. Did it give me brain damage and could I still have heart problems over this. I need to know exactly what it did too me and why did I see things and have this feeling everyday like I’m thinking I’m going to die?

Hello guys, I need your advice, I met this guy in the club I was on vacation, I don’t usually drink beer or mix drinks, I drink wine rarely and smoke cigarets only when I drink, after that night we exchange numbers and we keep in touch nothing happen until the next 6 times we see each other, we had a date and I brought a red wine which never got open, talking he offer me to smoke “TINA” didn’t know what was that he lie to me saying it’s like a hookah but get you high like weed, and I try it and first taste nasty then that night I smoke like 4-6 times a few of them didn’t come out smoke, I guess because I didn’t do it, my point is that after that I been craving and smoke 1-3 times every day not like a big hit, I got so high that I get very quiet and I start cleaning and organizing my staff, never had vomiting, headache or diarrea, only thing I’m very worry is that my stomach feels blow and fell like so much gasses inside, my FEET, HANDS, and FACE (by the mouth and cheeks) feels NUMB, PAIN, SWEAT, and BURN, don’t know what do, I really need help because I don’t like the way I’m looking and also I think he put something in my water, because it tasted nasty, I ask my friend who is doing this and he say that he might put some “G” or “GHB” something like that… Is anything I can take at home, been drinking water and being able to snack and eat it just the feeling of the burning cold hands, feet and face… Is anyone can help me give me an advice…
Thank You So Much!

I’ve been a long term user, I’m 19, about 50kg (injecting for about a year now) hardly touch it any other way.
My veins are so badly damaged and scarred it is difficult to put a needle in it at all, let alone in a vein! I can’t see my veins because of the scarring I hardly and rarely feel them I just put the needle where i feel it should go. I do any where between .05 to .2 at a time. I use 40 units of water max usually 20 to a p (.01) I’ve had tachycardia for a few months now, clots in my veins ect. Bed bound 24/7 but still using 24/7, very weak, feeling sick, hot flushes, feels like something thick goes through my veins, often leaves a red line as well! I get a rash, my temples collapse, swollen throat for the past week, hands turn blue, head spins to the point of going blind every time I stand up! I am at 136bpm at the moment. Ecg came back bad and have finally been referred to a specialist!!! These symptoms have all gotten noticeably worse and I mean a million times worse in the past 2 weeks… Visiting the doc a few times a week, skin goes blotchy, have borderline personality disorder.

Please email me and let me know what you think it could be? Yes I’ve reused needles a million times accidentally used someone else’s twice as well, I do take precaution with cleanliness. Clean needles out each time, alcohol swab, sterile ect…Was given Valium for my heart rate but doesn’t help in the slightest bit. I feel my heart pulsating through my chest and stomach it’s uncomfortable and heavy feeling on my chest…I’m often home alone but I feel I’m worse when I don’t have someone with me. I’m scared to sleep ect…

It’s 11pm. Haven’t had a shot for 24 hours because of the pain and swelling in my arms but have been smoking a bit. I use between a half weight and a half ball a day.
I put ice packs on my head and chest finding it helpful but right now I feel as if my heart is beating out of my chest! I’ve been to ed, they were horrible to me because I’m a “junkie” so have just been seeing doc and psych… But please get back to me asap because it’s horribly scary :'(
Thank you x

Hi my boyfriend swallowed about 5-7 oz of meth when being pulled over today. He started throwing up and convulsioning! He is now in icu on a ventilator and heavily sedated! Im so terrified do u think he will make it?

4:35 pm April 11th, 2015

Hi Kendra. Any answer that I give would be a complete guess, since I’m not aware of his general health state, or how quickly was the drug removed from his system, etc. I do hope for the best and I wish your boyfriend a fast recovery.

I’m not sure what it is I took someone put something in my drink but I’m having extreme stomach pain, shakiness, both arms keep going numb, and it feels like some one tied something to my eyes and is trying to drag me by them… Is this meth or something else either way what should I do???

shai
1:43 pm April 14th, 2015

@Kendra idk that’s a lot. The 2 grams I swallowed almost killed me. I hope all went well. Keep me posted…

And from my experience meth can not be removed out of your system the only thing really can be done is an iv to but water in his body and hope that his body can fight the effects. Most deff will have brain damaged. Might even have heart damage. If he does make it. Heart attacks or heart failer also strokes are most common

4:03 pm April 16th, 2015

Hi Keyanne. It sounds like you probably know the answer to your question. The symptoms that you describe can all be connected to long term abuse of meth.

Listen, if you want to get better you need to seek emotional and psychological support. You will probably need a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma counseling, and/or family counseling. Addiction is not a stand alone disease. These conditions that you describe may be affecting your body. But in order to get better, you need to address your thinking, thought process, and mental health.

Reach out for help and seek intensive care ASAP before it is too late.

Hello Soncha. If you are the U.S. I would suggest that you call the Poison Control Center on 1-800-222-1222 to speak with a poison expert that will provide guidance on what you should do next. If he is not feeling well, take him to the Emergency Room near you.

Ok so I smoke weed, then some old chump started smoking me out for free out of no were after trying methaphatimine atheist 5 times before at expanded periods of time. .. One day he took me for a drive and we hotbox a car taking hit after hit i took at least 8 or 7 hits as far as I can remember so before he dropped me off I took the last hit and he did also and he left atleast 15 dollars worth inside the peice so I dont know if he expected me to smoke the rest that night with out reminding me of the harmful affects which I kept in memo because I never wanted something bad to happend to me over the drug.. So I got home and I was lit except I was tryna take a few more hit I had no lighter so I used matches desperate to take a hit I lit it about 10 times and got about 2 or three hits because of the frequency of the matches, so then once again I felt my high, next thing you know about the next morning after a long night of browsing music I then started to feel tightness in my chest and respiratory problems it went on and off through out the day till later on that day around 7pm I tried sitting down in a chair and it seemed as if my body was tryna send signals and I knew something was wrong, from what I research i think I o.d. I had many symptoms dehydration wich I refused to stay hydrated during most the sessions I had with this person I then felt convulsions and constriction of the arteries which felt like blood was squeezing thru feeling like my heart was gonna have a stroke or something I then ran to my mother and told her the truth of what had happend. .. She gave me a blood thinner or high blood pressure pill or both and me myself actually take those daily except that night she layed me down and told me to lay on my side or something because it helps the heart or something like that. ..so I played there thinking everything was gonna be alright I was scared for my life because I was feeling this way and I wasnt an addict at all I’ve just tried it at different time periods and so on till I smoked with this person I confronted him bout the whole ordeal and told him what had happend i did the right thing and all the dope left over ima say atleast a grams worth i think i gave up the pookey and the dope inside and told him he can have it because i didnt wanna involve myself with those things, after the incedent i kept have convolsions and constriction of the arteries and had to maintain myself for atleast a week before it calmed down but from what ive researched it say after an o.d. if you survive or something i guess some affects last for two weeks or so & me its been a little more then two weeks and im still sometimes having trouble laying down on my front side or reaching over because i feel a tightness in my chest as if my heart isnt properly function but its in the process of recovery, same feeling i had when i was having convulsions and tightness of the chest. .. :( i feel like i screwed up my body over a stupid decision i made, and now my body is in a weird state now but still functioning at all i wanna exercise and do things i use to but some activities like those im afraid it will put serious pressure on my heart to the point were something bad might happend is what im afraid of :( if anyone is here i have no one to talk to about this and i need serious help on what safety precautions i can take to recover from this incedent that has happend to me i feel as if i took years off my life and now i feel the possibilty for heart failure or cardivascular disease or something please if anybody be a good person and help someone in need :( i am trying step by step to recover from this, i gurantee you i will never touch crystal meth after thee incident exept i hope im not stuck with serious problems :( i tried drinking water but slowly my body was slowly recovering and i take medications for high blood pressure called lupin 20 last time something happend to me like this another person who smoked free with me i guess needing someone to talk to i took a certain amount of hits and i felt a vein in my left or right forhead im tryna remember i felt horrible like it was serious but again i stop hitting it let it go then this happend to me exept it had to do with my heart this time :( please if anyones can give me some advice you be helping me taking the right steps, me myself honestly thot i was gonna lose my life i guess you can say im a survivor of an’ overdose exept i didnt go to the hospital i guess i tried handling it on my own with certain prescriptions im glad i didnt finish the rest of what was left after the night or i wouldnt be here submitting this comment at all :( please if someone is there help me in my time of need :(

My 8 month old Grandson was shaking but not from being cold so we took him to the hospital. The Triage nurse listed everything as normal. You see there are two lists, the review of systems, which lists ; EYES: All Negative, RESPIRATORY : All Negative, EARS/NOSE: All Negative. The second list is, Physical Examination which lists; Eyes: Pupils equal, round: Ears, Nose, Mouth and Throat : moist mucous membranes, Respiratory /Chest: no increased work of breathing, breath sounds equal, Heart: Regular rate and rhythm. There are other items on the list but these are the ones that mean something when Meth is in question. With that info throughout the two days spent in the hospital, how can they say the baby suffers from tachycardia, hypertension from Meth exposure. They said he had so much it could have killed him. Then they were so worried he could have a stroke or heart failure they turned around and held him down for 45 minutes to do a full body xray. This baby screamed his head off, this is what stressed him out and when they got there highest heart rate count at 200. Something is not right here.
Pupils should have been dilated, mucous membrane should have been dry and his breathing and heart should have been listed rapid. This is crazy. So we ask for test results and it says 292.86 which we are now being told that is a reference to a chapter in a mental health book.

2 days ago, me and my gf tried meth for the first time which is also the last time, together with 2 others that took it before. We had about 0.4g on hand, we finished it in about 9 hours. My gf (weigh about 50kg), took the most out of all but I can’t say for sure how many grams she had taken and I heard that it is better to take breaks in between but she didn’t really take much break. It has been one day since the last intake and she keeps complaining that her arms and legs tend to go numb occasionally and she can’t speak properly neither can she breathe properly from time to time and also her eyesight is sometimes blurred. But she also said that she did feel better but not a lot better compared to yesterday. Am I just being paranoid or did she already overdose? Because she has been telling me that she felt as if her body is giving way. And also, how long does it take for a person to recover totally after the last intake?

hello, I was at a friend’s 3 nights ago, they are everyday users and have been for years now, I have never used, they injected me quite a few times that night, and I had as much as them. I felt fine all day and night, but its now 3 days later and the comedown is starting to freak me out. For the past 3 days I havent been able to stop shaking, all of my nerves in my body, my jaw is still chewing, I am really short breathed, my throat feels like there is a lump in it, so I am having trouble swallowing water, I have no appetite, and I am finding it impossible to sleep even with the help of sleeping pills and when I do get an hour or two sleep, I wake up to a saturated wet bed in a pool of sweat. I am going to the toilet excessively with diarrhea and today there is a horrible pain in my lower back, around my bowel area. My thoughts are somewhat paranoid, stumbling and stuttering when I need to talk to people.. I thought it might just be like this for the first night after but it is still happening, and I just want to feel back to normal, I will never in my life touch this again, but Im just wondering if there is anything to help with this?
How long will it last in my system?
and also could i possibly o.d a few days after first use? or would it happen on the night of use, because this doesnt feel good at all!! :(

My :'( boyfriend has been drugging me with large amounts of meth so if I die shortly here now I know why he would make me take so much.

Hello Carly. You can report this to the police. If you are not willingly taking meth it’s a crime to force you.

My friend died not to long ago, she overdosed on meth but no one was aware she did drugs. I’m just wondering how much crystal meth do you have to snort to overdose?

4:40 pm July 15th, 2015

Hello Amanda. I’m very sorry for the loss of your friend. The amount of meth a person must take to overdose will vary depending on several factors. The weight of your friend, her general health, natural immunities, and built-up resistance or tolerance to meth, as well as the purity of the meth itself.

How high/likely are people like me to die from this? And is there any records of anyone surviving an extream meth over dose like mine?

If u would take about 3 or 4 grams which is equal to an 8ball could it kill you if you have a high tolerance to drugs

My daughter died May 6th. She was found unresponsive and then declared dead by EMPs. She did use meth. Her heart was enlarged and had dilated values. She had edema on and off. She was warned not to do it again as it could cause immediate death But she did. After doing it so long I guess it was hard to stop. Our hearts are broken. We received the autopsy results today. I have a question on amount of drug taken. Tox screen says: amphetamine 0.40 ug.ml
meth 1.9 ug/ml what do these numbers mean? Is that an overdose? report says died from congestive heart failure by cardiomegaly = four chamber dilatation= pulmonary congestion and edema. Please everyone, try and save the ones you love from having to bury you and read a cononers report about you

My boyfriend overdosed and didn’t get medical attention til hours after he ingested the crystal. He smoked it, snorted and possibly ate some of it. He’s in ICU l right now and he’s been there for 3 days now, he didn’t remember who i was and that scares me. The nurses said he should get his memory back eventually but i’m not sure if he will remember how close we were so i just wanted to know what you think about his chances of becoming 100% him again and the chance of him remembering us. I’ve only known him for a couple months.

Melissa

I shot up meth and now I’m having a really hard time breathing. Am I over dosing?

Hi Melissa. If you have someone next to you who is sober, have them drive you to the ER. If not, Call 911.

Will
8:28 pm September 1st, 2015

I’m pretty sure I had a od last night. A friend an me snorted at least 3.5-4 grams of crystal in about 24hrs. When I came home at 7pm felt good, hadn’t done any since 9am, two of my friends wanted some so I put a gram down with 75cc’s of water for IV use. Each got 25cc’s pulled up. But anyways, as soon as I hit my self I thought that I had over dosed. I had ringing in my ears, immediate dry mouth, started shaking, spots in my vision, confused paranoid. So around 10pm I was laying down with my girl friend, an I’m positive my body started seizing up on me. It is now 2:30pm the following day an I’m still shaking, my muscles in my arms an legs are sore from all the shaking an tightening up last night, still a little bit short of breath,as in not normal breathing. Should I go to the hospital or what? I looked up everything last night, an I have almost every sign of an overdose.

4:43 pm September 4th, 2015

Hi Will. Yes, the best and smartest thing to do is seek medical help. Have someone you trust drive you to the hospital.

Can meth suffocate you to death just by smoking it??? Cause my airways close up sometimes when I’m smoking and I fear I’ll stop breathing altogether. Will this happen, do you think?? Thanks, Denis

Idk if this is the right place to ask, but, I’ve been using this monster for some time now and what im wondering is how do you know what’s cut and what’s not? I mean b besides the obvious. I know the feeling when its good but sometimes 8 get a shaky feeling and a feeling as if there’s a fire inside my chest. Someone told me once you can get more sick from cut than too much meth… Any input would be great, thanks. Oh, also, is it overdosing if someone injected me and my hearing, vision and ability to stand diminished and I fell asleep for 26 hours??

Hello, my father has been taking meth consistently for about 5 years now and has been shooting it everyday for the past 3 years. He uses a lot, possibly up to 1.5 or even 2 grams daily. He has severe psychological disorders due to his habit now and ruined all relationships with everyone in his family including me. All we tried to do was help him. I was wondering how long a person, 50 years old, could survive while using like this? He has done severe damage to himself and honestly he is not sane anymore.

Ive been going to Cambodia and Thailand for 8 years to binge out on meth, Heroin and Ketamine. Each trip has caused severe overdoses, permanent injuries to nerves, extremely close to going to jail, suicide attempts, extortion on two occasions, kidnapping on two occasions, sent home with nothing nut the cloths i was wearing after one kidnapping and severeoverdose left on the street to die. Lost job, friends, famiy. Have brought home 4 years supply of lorazap am, valium ant Tramadol. Also take 600 to 800mg a day of Lyrica, progabalin.

Each trip, understand reality may never come home.

Problem I dont want to stop and prepared to die. But ca n not bear the thought of last major overdose,. My body heated up so badly, veins popping out everywhere, pain so bad wanted to die. It was a nightmare. Took 2000mg of Lyrica to gain control. 8 hours tater had another attack, tried killing myself to stop the pain so intense. Why did this happen. ?…….The meth was extremely strong and because lost everything stopped Lyrica medication to complicate things and no money to buy water for three days. You can imagine my emotional state.

I do all the above due to placebo drug trial that gives me daily pain I only exist.

A week or two every six months to be happy with no pain just keeps me alive. Medical fraternity refuse to help anymore as say I new the isks of going on a Telepafar Trial for hep c which fried my body really bad burning my internal membranes.

Feeling end I s near, panning next trip at xmas……..

Could a Drug R e hab Help

Lots more but thats a glimps of my world which at 53 starting drug at 16 and making it to director in government for 10 years achieving so much everyone threatened and resented me for my intelkectual capacity and ability to achieve imp I ssible.

I stupidly decided to try meth. Mainly to take a short while and lose some weight. I snorted it 10 hours ago and and so sick! Nausea and vomiting and the worst headache I’ve ever had! Its excruciating! Sweetie and anxious as well. This is a nightmare I will never ever touch again! My friend who had it took the same amount and is fine. Why am I so sick and why is my head hurting so badly? When will it stop?

Randy
8:28 pm November 4th, 2015

So I have done meth before, about a year ago, but I haven’t done it in a long time, got my hands on it again, and I snorted approximately less than .2 throughout the course of the day, I had started at 11 am, I didn’t eat anything all day, except a meal supplement shake, which I had before I started doing the shit that day, later that night, I was coming down and my buddy wanted to drink, he got redds wicked apple ales, we both drank 5 in about 2 hours, we were gunna go get chicken wings but once we got in the car, and got around the corner, I told him I didn’t feel so well and to just take me back to my place and I’m gunna go to bed, and he said okay good call, I waliked into my house and I started to feel really nauseous, I went to go eat some food and drink some milk thinking that it would relive my stomach, but all of a sudden, I started to feel like I was gunna vomit, this is where I started to black out, I remember walking up to my room, hitting my bong believing that would give me a sense of relief, but all of a suddeny heart started racing and I laid on my floor in the hallway and the last thing I remember thinking was that I was gunna die right here just like this, and then I was floating in and out of consciousness, I recall my mom and sister standing over me, and then I started throwing up, but when I woke up the next morning, my kidneys are sore, especially my left one, mostly on my lower back, like right about my ass, but next to my hip, my question is, do you think I could have seriously damaged my kidney? Like should I go to the doctor’s and get myself checked out? I’m not peeing blood or anything, but it is noticeably sore, and I’m obviously really worried, I’m only 18, let me know what you think asap, thank you!

12:32 am November 14th, 2015

What does it mean if you suddenly right after doing a nice size line nothing rediculus just a nice good like I felt amazing buy the intensity because extreme and I feel with in a minute I quickly rapidly got the worse pressure and brain squeezing tenting headache but then my eyes sight became blurry my vision is totally blurry and it then became so horrific I could grade it up to a migraine as the stiffness eye water uncontrollably but they are all swollen and all my senses are super intense i was also having to deal with intense plug up nose also am having so sort of skin reaction to explain. In more detail I have red bluchy skin all over the place I havre poor blue fow tp my limps i also quickly on purposely opened my door and windows to get cold in her and now have the fan on me cause my head was so red and my face was burning my ears felt like it was on fire. Everything happened so quickly i could not believe how quick i was going thru inplesent painful and terrifying so i nade sure to put a cold towel around my ne k tgat goears felt like they were burning off like on fire so I’m in the dark complete silent and am really trying hard to take nice deep slow deep breath and then slowly release it back out I am hoping dropping my tempature and I toke an advil extra strength followed with anti nausea 2 pills also took one pill that comes my nerves or stops a panic attack plus two antihistamines I figure if I can keep the inflammation under control and get down this migraine type head ache I’m hoping will subside. I also took 2 perks for my usual cronic pain I also skipped 2 doses of my normal prescribed pain medication did want to harm or accidently screw myself over. So why did I ho thru this reaction so quickly and such an intense symptoms it’s never happen before what was it please and I do appraise the time dedicated in answering question and being honest cause I would trust your option and could never trust some website page that could not credible and just fucking with people hope to hear back and see a response soon

I love how within the article and the comments wiht hundreds of people asking there is not ONE pice of hard information that might be useful. Not even specific signs or symptoms of an overdose, much less how much ballpark mg/kg ld50 is. Totally useless clickbait article, there is not ONE solid fact in this entire article relating to specifics of overdose on meth.

3:35 pm November 19th, 2015

Hi Niyana. You can read about the specific signs and symptoms of overdose in the “meth overdose complications” section of the article. Plus, we believe that there is a risk with publishing exact doses for overdosing. We wouldn’t want people to abuse such information.

Esoteric Creed
2:50 am November 21st, 2015

If you begin to experience headache after consuming methamphetamine in ANY way but especially after injecting or smoking the drug you very well might be at risk of damaging the blood vessels of the brain or the arteries of the heart and circulatory system. Stroke, and aneurysm, aortic aneurysm and heart attack can be induced by methamphetamine consumption. Of course you know what a heart attack is right? Seizure? Well all of these things can be induced by the consumption of methamphetamine. The faster and more powerful the onset of the methamphetamine coupled with any pre-existing conditions one might have effect the likelihood of any of these occurrences. One might also suffer brain damage or liver damage as a result of hyperthermia. Furthermore, people who inject methamphetamine are almost always as in 98% of the time also along with methamphetamine and water also injecting numerous impurities such as the active ingredient in drain cleaner or brick acid which is hydrochloric acid. Sometimes they are injecting trace amounts of other caustic substances such as lye and also toxic chemicals such as red phosphorus. The hazardous chemicals often lead to inflammation of the heart, it’s arteries and can lead to the degradation of any other software tissues which come into contact with the substance. The larger the dose and the faster the onset coupled with any pre-existing health conditions play the largest role in determining ones risk for overdose. Given that methamphetamine can cause hardening of the artery walls many long time users are already suffering from some stage of atherosclerosis. If you suffer from high blood pressure or any type of heart rhythm disorder you are also are at a significantly higher risk for suffering a methamphetamine overdose. These are just a few conditions which play a role. Also it has been my experience that many overdoses lead to death when drugs are mixed. Some people are constantly consuming whichever substance happens to be around at the time and end up with a dangerous drug cocktail in their blood streams. If any of you are suffering from some of the symptoms people have posted such as long prolonged headaches ( possible aneurysm) , painful what feels like indigestion ( possible heart attack ) Uncontrollable spasm ( indication of possibly imminent seizure) It is very important not to put off medical treatment. That is, emergency medical treatment. I’m sure that many of the people’s who loved ones have died here do to methamphetamine could have prevented it if they had only sought out emergency medical attention at the onset of symptoms instead of postponing them for fear or inconvenience or any other reason. In the mean time if you have aspirin available to you, you can take couple full strength aspirin to thin the blood which will ease headache and possibly combat the occurrence of heart attack or stroke. Do not allow your self to become dehydrated as your blood will thicken and your blood pressure will become further raised. If you have a drink with electrolyte such as gatorade drinking those beverages would be preferential as a healthy heart rhythm depends on balanced sufficient electrolyte levels. If you have a benzodiazapine available such as Alprazolam ( Xanax ) Lorazepam (Ativan ) Clonazepam ( Klonolin ) an appropriate oral dose in case of pre-emergency treatment if you aren’t tolerant of benzodiazapine would be approximately 1 – 2 mg of Xanax. 7 – 10 mg of Ativan and 4 – 6 mg of Klonopin. Do not exceed these types of doses because it could cause a catastrophic rapid rise and fall of blood pressure. The most important part is to seek E.R. treatment ASAP. Of course you avoid all this by choosing to abstain from the dangerous drug methamphetamine in the first place.

Hi I’m Megan I’ve done Meth a few times before but not much at all just only when it’s given to me and I hardley see the person. Anyways I took some I snorted some and swallowed the rest I have no idea how much it was but it was alot and I have no tolerance for this stuff since I don’t do it. Well I Googled and looked everywhere but I can’t find the answer and this article didn’t have it either. So anyways after I did the Meth I was feeling great I started cleaning and stuff but then all a sudden I feel sick to my stomach it felt so bad then I started puking I didn’t think I could stop and every time I tried drinking or eating anything to help I would puke it up again and it was so horrible! Then my head started killing me it wasn’t just any headache it was the worst pain I felt in my life! I reacted by grabbing it and applying pressure and the messed up thing was when I went to sit down it made my head hurt 50x worse and made me immediately throw up. My question is why did that happen did I do too much Meth? That was the worst experience ever! Please answer my question though I can’t get no answer no where! Thank you,Meg

Hi,
I know of friends who take meth on a daily basis and in a month, they probably use about 5g of it. Does that make one an abuser? However, a few of them mentioned that they do not feel or see any of the effects of meth on them at all. Why is that so?

Kim
1:19 am December 1st, 2015

I ate meth. Rolled it up in piece of toilet paper and swallowed. Been clean over a month. However I’ve experienced the most intense stomach pain and blockage in small intestine. Been to er but didn’t mention I used. Did I poison myself? Can this stomach pain go away the longer I’m clean and take proper care of my health? I’m trying. Been s few weeks and not as much pain depending what and how I eat. Did I damage my stomach? What can I do? Be honest with my doctor?

So 2 days ago I ask a homeboy for a point (shot) I didn’t know how much he threw down, but after he gave me my point, my body got super hot but the weirdest thing happened to me, which has never happened before. My head was throbbing SO hard, my head hurt. I literally had to put my hands on the back of my head & push down. It hurt so bad that I lost my high. & now today, my neck feels like I’ve slept the wrong way & mind you, I haven’t slept yet…what does this pain mean?? It has me freaking out

I would like to know if I cause myself permanent harm by doing to much to quickly and how do I make the feeling come back in my fingers

He also has started acting like he is a 5 year old watching cartoons and playing with toys and he goes from hisself to the kid and back. Could this be overdose? Please help

Margarita
6:05 am January 6th, 2016

So I’ve been smoking meth for about 4 or 5years so in a way I experienced a lot of side effects &have multiple long term effects from using so long so basically I just wanna know if have the right side of my head hurting constantly, having my veins become berly visible but I can feel them tighting, & also that feeling of my body giving out that it just wants to shut down I know that this is probably the stupidest question cause I know the answer but should I go to the doctor &see if any of these things have caused something serious that I probably don’t know about? I went before because I almost passed out on the street but after I told them that I do meth they treated me differently &not as concerned once I told them so when the ambulance dropped me off I got up &left cause I could over here them talking about me so that’s why I usually just deal with everything that happenes to me when I’m on meth so I just wanted an opinion on what to do?

I started using again (3months), this time is different from when I was younger (20), now 34, Not living the dark criminal tweaker world like I once did, stealing, lying, dealing, doing what ever I could to get that high. Now I do not have to turn to criminal actions to get high . Money and supply is constant, I only endure the drug alone or a few select people, closet tweaker these days. When we do party we party long and hard, in my final hours before crashing down I always have thoughts of suicide or death, never act on these impulses, and just really strange and morbid thoughts…I never act on them cause I know it’s the drug, but kinda of worried at same time, am I really suicidal and crazy deep down and only recognize it while my mind working overtime to produce all the dopamine I so crave….?

I think your body can process foreign things, bacteria, drugs (illegal/legal), alcohol, etc. THere’s only a few rules that one must abide by to be able to do whatever they feel like at a recreational level.
1. Mind Over Matter. you have to be in control of yourself. if you are a weak minded person or are susceptible to a particular habit due to being born under the influence of whether it be crack, cocaine, meth, alcohol, etc. you probably should steer clear from these substance because of the addiction will take hold. IF YOU HAVE A SENSE OF SELF CONTROL I’M CONFIDENT YOU CAN USE AND NOT EXPERIENCE ANY SERIOUS HARM. THE KEY IS TO DO EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. I ONLY I.V. A VERY SMALL AMOUNT JUST FOR A TASTE BUT NOT ENOUGH TO WHERE I’LL BE DOPESICK THE FOLLOWING DAYS. I DON’T EXCESSIVELY DO CLEAR/ICEE/BATU I DO IT IN CONTROLLED AMOUNTS. PEOPLE WHO ACCIDENTALLY OVERDOSE IS BEFAUSE THEY WANT TO FEEL THE HIGH. YOU GOTTA TRICK YOURSELF INTO BELIEVEING THAT TINY AMOUNT IS GONNA MAKE YOU FEEL SOMETHING. NEVER JUST SHOOT WHAT YOU DEEM SUITABLE DUE TO THE POTENTIAL POTENCY AND YOUR TOLERANCE. HERE’S A SIDE RULE: DO DRUGS DON’T OVER DO IT AND DIE. YOU WANNA OFF YOURSELF DO IT ELSEWHERE IN A FUCKING HOLE HIDDEN AWAY FROM EVERYTING AND EVERYONE.
2. DON’T BE A FLAKE JUST BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T GET SLEEP OR YOU’RE TOO “HIGH”. THAT’S CALLED PARANOIA WHICH WILL OFTEN LEAD TO ANXIETY AND UNNECESSARY STRESS. DON’T BE A STATISTIC. ENJOY RESPONSIBLY AND TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL YOU MUST BE RESPONSIBLE. YOU HAVE TO BE SOMEWHERE (SCHOOL, WORK, FAMILY FUNCTION, COMMUNITY SERVICE, CHURCH, ETC.) WELL YOU BETTER BE THERE.
3. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FOR EXAMPLE, BRUSH YOUR TEETH, DON’T FORGET OR PUT IT OFF, TAKE A SHOWER, YOU PROBABLY SMELL AND ARE REALLY OILY. BE PRODUCTIVE, MAKE YOUR METH EXPERIENCE SOMETHING WORTH WHILE. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME SITTING IN ONE PLACE FOR 12 HRS.
4. PASS THESE DRUG LAWS ALONG TO NEW USERS. OF COURSE EVERYONE THINKS THEY CAN QUIT ANYTIME, BUT THAT’S ALL BULLSHIT. IT’S POSSIBLE BUT ONLY TO A SELECT FEW. EDUCATE SO THEY CAN RELATE.
5. EAT, EXERCISE, AND TRY TO SLEEP. I’D LIKE TO CALL THAT THE MINIMAL. I LIKE TO REFER TO THIS SLEEP AS “THE FAKEY” CAUSE YOU CANT SLEEP WHO ARE WE KIDDING, UNLESS IT WAS NOT TO YOU STANDARDS. LIGHT WORKOUT, GOOD STRETCHING, EATING RIGHT, AND SOME SLEEP OR AT THE MINIMUM YOUR BODY NEEDS REST.
6. dON’T LOSE FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE. EXAMPLE I PLAY MUSIC. I’VE BEEN WRITING ALL ORIGINAL MATERIAL FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS ON GUITAR BUT JUST RECENTLY TRANSITIONED FROM THE UKE. LET ME TELL YOU WHAT, I’M NOT ABOUT TO LET DRUGS DETERIORATE MY TALENT AND DREAMS. THIS KINDA CORRELATES WITH RULE NUMBER 123, JUST BE YOURSEOLF.
I’M LIKE A HUNTER S. THOMPSON. IVE DONE EVERY DRUG IN THE BOOK. I SHOOT HEROIN (TAR/CHINA), I SHOOT METH, I USED TO DRINK HEAVILY, I SMOKE A LOT OF CANNABIS. I USED TO DO A GOOD AMOUNT, SCARY FOR A NON USER WHO IS EITHER TO BUSY JUDGING OR NERVOUS CAUSE THEYVE ONLY HEARD IT LIKE AN OLD MYTH BUT NEVER SEEN IT OR SEEN IT DONE. I HELP COORDINATE OUR CLIENTS WITH HEALTH SERVICES AND BENEFITS THAT IS MY JOB, 9-5 FIVE DAYS A WEEK. I AM A PART TIME STUDENT AS WELL. I AM A FULL TIME MUSICIAN. I AM NOVICE SCREEN WRITER, AND I ENJOY DOING ACTING JUST NEVER DID IT BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL. YOU WERE CONSIDERED GAY BUT IF I CAN GO BACK I’D CHANGE THAT. I LOVE MY MOM TOO. MY FAMILY IS COOL. LAST PIECE OF ADVICE, DONT AND DO NOT TRY TO USE DRUGS TO DISSOCIATE YOURSELF FROM YOUR REALITY. THAT’S HOW YOU LOSE SIGHT OF WHATS IMPORTANT AND YOU START TO FALL OFF IN A BAD WAY. I AM RARE BREED, ONE WHO CAN BALANCE EVERYTHING AND KEEP ON THE PATH IN WHICH IS MY OWN TO DISCOVER. YOU DONT WANT TO WALK THE PATH THEN VEER OFF INTOAN UNBEATEN TRAIL THAT MIGHT LEAD YOU IN CIRCLES UNTIL IT SPITS YOU OUTINTO THE UNKNOWN. DON’T BE A NUMBER TO A STATISTIC, DON’T BE BORING AND JUDGMENTAL (IF YOU’VE NEVER TIRED YOU HAVE NO SAY OR OPINION, KEEP IT IN YOUR HEAD. UNTIL SOMEONE COMES FROM ANOTHER WORK PLACE, ALL SALSA AS THE MEXICANS WOULD CALL IT.
I HOPE THESE SIMPLE GUIDELINES WILL HELP YOU STAY ON WHATEVER PATH YOU ARE ON. MY VERDICT, YOU CANNOT OVERDOSE ON METH BUT THE COMPLICATIONS MIGHT CAUSE SOMETHING TO HAPPEN AT THAT MOMENT AND IT’S UNCONTROLLABLE. IT’S NOT LIKE COCAINE OR HEROIN WHERE ONE SHOT TOO POTENT CAN PUT YOU OUT. I TRAINED MYSELF, TO ENJOY ENOUGH AND THEN CHILL OUT. THAT’S HOW STAY SAFE AND NOT FALL OFF AND HIT BAT2 BOTTOMS. OH HERE’S A DISCLAIMER DON’T BE ONE OF THOSE HYPOCRITICAL HECLKIN DOUCHE BAGS AND TELL ME DRUGS ARE BAD AND YOU DON’T DO IT CAUSE YOUR ALL HIGH AND MIGHTY HOLDING ON TO YOU BOOZE AND ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES (THAT KILLS MORE PEOPLE THAN ALL SUBSTANCES, DON’T TELL ME YOUR ABOVE METH WHEN YOU TAKE ADDERRAL AND VYVANSE AND FOCALIN AND YOU ARE NOT PRESCRIBED. BE REAL WITH YOURSELF, DON’T START YOUR DRUG CAREER WITH DENIAL. FASTEST WAY TO THE BOTTOM. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU I HOPE ALL YOU CAN JOIN ME IN THE RANKS OF THE ELITE COMPANY. ALL YOU GOTTA DO IS NOT FUCK UP. WORK HARD AND PARTY HARD BUT WORK RESPONISBLY OR WISELY. ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF HUMANS CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS TEST AND I HOPE ALL OF YALL CAN JOIN ME ONE DAY, IF NOT I AM SORRY BUT YU SHOULD GO HOME DO SOMETHING ELSE LIKE KNITTING AND HANDBALL OR SOMETHING. DON’T JUDGE, YOU DON’T HAVE THE CREDENTIALS, AND TALK TO PEOPLE LIKE YOU KNOW WHATS THE DEAL, JUST CAUSE YOUR FRIEND OR BROTHER OR SISTER OR WHOEVER DID IT DOESNT MAKE YOU A FUCKING SCIENTIST OR AN EXPERT. KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND LET THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE DARK AND LIGHT COLLIDE, TH GOOD AND EVIL SO THEY CAN DANCE TOGETHER IN A UNFORGIVING AND AMAZING DANCE. ENJOY RESPONSIBLY OR NOT, YOURE CHOICE.

I’m not a daily meth user and don’t intend to be. I injected meth with a friend about two weeks, and did another hit within a week. I’m struggling whether or not to inject him tonight, which is a week later. Is injecting meth once a week considered too much? Struggling to decide. Thanks!

7:54 pm January 16th, 2016

I have been smoking meth for 12 yrs. I’ve stopped for maybe 4-5 yrs here and there not all at once. I never made it to a yr. I recently started to slam again, I know this might seem weird but I’m not a sucked up tweaker, I eat, sleep 7-8 every night . I cook for my family, do everything a housewife does. I have 8 yr old daughter and 5 month old son. I love them to death. My husband recently found out of my using, he knew I used before but thought I had quit for good. I didn’t tell him I had relapsed. Little by little he just found dope then pipes and recently the syringes. He’s from mexico and I’m from here California. I love this guy very very much. He’s became a little distant from me since I admit to.me using. I don’t do anything that I’m not supposed to but use meth. Thats my only problem! IIIII bought everything my son has proudly when I was pregnant still working … He still has diapers and wipes from then. I stocked up on EVERYTHING at home. I knew I wasn’t going to be working for a while. My point is I honestly don’t think I’m doing anything wrong. Ok yeah its illegal but I’m a great person, neighbor, friend, mom, wife lover….

Mari
8:01 pm January 16th, 2016

Its all great like a normal life. Well all have our problems of course but when I don’t have dope which isnt so often luckily … My body hurts! I feel throbbing throughout my whole body and I just want to cry and eat and sleep. Well I can’t do that cause I have my family to attend. I want to quit but it hurts waaaay too much. When I use I don’t get all crazy I use it to get through the day and be able to get what I have to do done. Does anyone know what I mean?? I’m not a bad person or a scandalous tweaker …

Ok so i dont reguarly smoke , and i did a couple night ago it was my first few hits and i got a bad pain like a headache in the back of my head and it went away fast then i felt like i was gonna black out , my friend kept talking to me to keep me Awake and we played guitar hero so i could focus slurring my speech , and as soon as i didnt focur on the game or him talking to me i starting to blackout in my head. Eventually i became fine again regular high feeling , kept talking and playing games , took a break and smoked again and its like my brain started shaking i couldnt focus my vision , and my body kept shaking , eventually went back to normal . I get ready to leave in the morning and take a few hits before i drive home, and i get about halfway there and my vision goes again , brain is shaking, cant focus , body is shaking , so i pull into a gas station and wait for about a hour , picked up my kids and took them to their dads moms house to visit , ( shes been using meth since she was 15 shes now 39) they were playing with the kids outside while i stayed inside because i didnt feel good . She told me she came in and i was shaking badly and just staring into space. My question is am i having seziures ? Never been dianosed with them … when i first started doing meth 2 years ago , my ex was having me take a hit while kinda squatting down on the floor then i stood up and let it out…. the next thing i remember is waking up to him holding and shaking me crying , he told me i was out for about 15mins. I had hit my head on the dresser , my hair was caught on it.. i felt okay after idk if that was a seizure though

I don’t know you will still respond to this really old post, but im 17 and i started smoking ice months ago.I never really did get sick off this stuff, but last night,i only took two hits of ice while stoned and i came back home after that. I woke up in the middle of the night with chills and puked. I didn’t puke much since i had an empty stomach, all that came out was the water i drank just five minutes before.
I’m scared this is over dose because crashing was never this bad before. My friend considered me going to the hospital, but i refused. please respond asap

2:23 pm January 24th, 2016

I was given some “crystal” two days ago and I was advised it was very good quality. I was a sever drug user for 15 years, I quit and have had no drugs for the last 5 years so I figured I should have a very small amount. As soon as I injected the stuff I had the most horrific experience – it felt like the back of my neck had been put in a vice and I had a pain in my chest that felt like I’d been slammed in the chest with a cricket bat – the chest pains lasted for for two days and I was generally very ill (spewing, drooling etc)
I assume I overdosed or something along those lines – I have taken just about every drug out and I generally tend to take more of the substance than less but I’Ve never had such an horrific and unpleasant effect from taking a drug.
I have read the comments below but no-one else has mentioned experiencing the same reaction.
Could you please confirm if it sounds like I od’d

Hi, Destyni. I suggest you listen your friend, and check into the hospital to make yourself sure that you are okay. Also, call 911 ASAP if you still don’t feel well.

My son is a meth addict. He is currently in prison and, unfortunately, meth and other drugs are widely available in the prison. He mentioned to me that if he even SEES meth he gets all shaky, perspires, heart beats rapidly, and his abdomen hurts and he sometimes vomits. He does not have to use meth, as the symptoms come on by just seeing the substance. He mentioned today that if he doesn’t see the meth, yet only thinks about it, that the symptoms do not occur. It is only when he physically sees the drug that he gets ill. Any insight as to what causes this, and is there anything he can do to combat his addiction problem in prison? There are no drug addiction services in the prison system. Any help is greatly appreciated. Frankly, I think prison saved his life with his being in solitary confinement for many months, cutting off access to the never-ending consumption of this evil substance.

I have smoked Ice in the past a handful of times. It’s been years since I used. I took the smallest hit 3 days ago. I still haven’t slept. I feel electric shocks on the back of my head, tingling. I am also now slightly panicking and believe the feeling I’m getting as I’m about to fall asleep where I gasp for air is anxiety related. Anxiety brought on by the use. Though I didn’t use much I realised that even though I haven’t smoked much at all it was enough for my body to experience all that horrible stuff. I’m just amazed at how I have reacted to this and won’t be going near anything drug related again. Ever. Ever.

Just to add. I am shocked at how sudden the onset of acute symptoms of anxiety and methamphetamine use was considering the amount taken. Because purity is a factor here it’s like I took one drag from a cigarette.

I know someone who has used meth for 25 years relatively every day in some amount. Lately though my friend has been having different things or symptoms such as shaky hands they cannot control and don’t stop, and headaches that don’t ever go away. Can you tell me what might be happening and also what changed within their brain and body that has caused these things to start taking place now after 25yrs?

Every batch is different. people add all kinds of poison to expand the weight of its original substance. For all you know half of what you invested is under your sink, a quarter in your med cabinet and the last quarter could be plain caffeine. Why do you ask these questions when you already know the answer. You feel like shit, your emotionless and addicted to something you spend 100s of 1000s of dollars on a year, the real you is imprisoned and tortured, all the while watching your life fall apart. physical/mental trauma, detachment from god himself, loss of children, homes, vehicles (real friends) even if you are your only friend. And our government could remove it in a day. Each chemical banded, or even take one that is commonly found in meth, like bug spray:/ change it up to where it causes an unfavored side effect such as vomiting or lose bowels (Anything). Instead of using the power they retain for good, we receive betrayal and punishment. We are I’ll. We are like bee’s addicted to nicotine. Without us they wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.
Pre judgement and plain neglect? Or staged manipulation? You decide. They want your money, and to rank up. They don’t care about your kids being safe or nurtured, otherwise they’d put you in a a place with no drugs, booze or influences. Lock me up n a cell, put a TV few beds three meals a day a piece shower bible structure and my kids for five to ten, and you’ll save a thousand lives. Put me in jail with murderers rapists and evil people, how am I to achieve? Put a man in law school for 5 years you got a lawyer. Put a a man in prison for five years for substance abuse and release him, you get a warning label and slim to no chance of being sober and successful. I am fed up with this bs. . its all a set up

Hi guys, im a user that only uses every once in a while, maybe like once every couple of months, this time however is different, i have smoked .001 which i believe is 100mg and currently have another 100mg in my pipe, while still suffering all the side affects, i do not feel high? Is this normal, or is this how overdose starts causing you to fall into a false sense of security, i know my bodys limits as i have been a marijuana smoker most of my life, i am constantly on top of my body and my health, but this is very weird, instead of feeling alert and awake, i feel lethargic and tired. Is it possible to smoke yourself sober lol.

I just want people to know that have drug problems that there is a new law to help people that have overdosed to be able to call the police or 9-1-1 for help bill 839 . It allows people to call for help and not be arrested on a warrant not to be afraid they’re going to be arrested so they can get the help they need just remember till 839….. I want people to remember this because my son that was 28 years old died he called 9-1-1 for help because he said he put too much meth in his system the ambulance came and the police and because he had not been checking in with his Po he had a warrant the police decided to take him to the jail rather than the hospital and he was booked at 9 a.m. and died at 10:49 .I’m so glad there’s a bill 839 to help people that think they have overdosed and will not get arrested please spread the word I cannot bring back my son but hopefully I can help other people with drug problems remember Bill 839

I have suspected meth abuse recently with my live in (11 yrs) ,I have a ton of questions , this may not be the right forum but just need some answers .In the past 2-3 months d’s breathing at night have changed drastically , instead of the once rumbling of thunder breathing it is what I would call something like a dying persons last breathing sounds, there is chortling,crackling, sounds I cannot explain. Certainly not the norm and not healthy , 2 nights ago I thought he was dead due to them stopping for all of 5 minutes . is this due to snorting or smoking meth? He says He can’t help it and it is from smoking Cigs. I know better. I took to sleeping in the guest room, may I add he is no longer a guest here , any kind of feed back would be appreciated, (also I am not so sure Heroin may not be involved )

I do have a question which I do understand the scientific part why it happened. My question? Why am I hearing repeated sounds? like the sound can be a whistle or a persons voice? Like its a SOUND I legit hear. So why is this happening? User I am, Abuser I am not.

1:10 pm April 4th, 2016

I am a 16 year old girl who has been using meth off and on again since I was the age of 12 I currently see my drug and alcohol consular weekly and I have normally been pretty good at staying clean I will go anywhere from 4-7 months without using but then I would have binges oh any where between 2-4 days long. And I mean no sleep what’s so ever. I have a major reputation where I live and I don’t want people knowing that I secretly crack and use to escape this horrible reality. Anyways I have been using quite large amounts I am normally a lightweight and an easy bake if I was to smoke weed I get very bad anxiety wen j smoke weed but now I am on day number five with no sleep and all I have had to eat was a cheese burger on day one and a granola bar on day three. My brother inlaw normally forces me to eat becuase he knows I need to be safe as do I.
I feel like my entire body is covered in meth. I felt it from the tips of my fingers to the lids of my eyes. I have never felt this with my experiences with meth. I went into the shower and sat down becuase the heat was creating dog and my brother told me he would come to check me and I was getting really anxious hallucinating the fog it would turn Ito people I scrubbed my body until I bled in some areas Hidinf my face in the bottom of the tub becuase I new I was just high. I started hallucinating on my counters and my mirrors I don’t feel like talking I feel incredibly weak my breathing has been off and on good and bad I have chest pains when k focus on breathing I want to go to sleep and get this over with but I fear I may need to go to the hospital

The think is. You know your body and right now my body is hot and cold sore but tickling and my vision is going. Never thought I could of on meth becuSe I simply just smoke it and I have always taken large amounts my mouth and throat is extremely dry and my nose is continuously leaking even though I have not snorted it.
Am ODing?

I recently found out that My 15 year old sister has been using Crystal Meth on and off for almost a year , My question is how much damage has she done to herself ? She says she can stop for a few months do it once and Can stay sober . But is it possible that when she decides to try it again ,she’ll take a large amount and O.D ? She told me she doesnt do much , she either does 2 rocks that are as big as a dime or 1 big rock in the shape of a 50¢ coin. Im really concerned , she fooled my parents saying she can stop whenever she wants to but I dont believe that . I really hope you can give me answers , thankyou .

I once ended up in intensive care from an overdose due to taking sudafed during the day for allegies then smoking good or decent quality meth that night. It was my first overdose. It was very scary and I remember it very well. I was in and out of conciousness all night. It started with rapid heartbeat which i could hear followed by tunnel vision and dizziness. I

My son was 17 and was missing for 3 months.
He was found in a lake after missing for three months.
Cause of death was ruled accidental drowning with methamphetamine intoxication being a contributing factor.
1.3 mg/kg was found in muscle tissue.
Assuming he passed away the night that he went missing.
Is this a large quantity in his system ?
Please help me understand what this amount means in relation to death.
Thank you so very much.

About 10 mins ago I took a pretty big size shot of Meth. It was most likely half a gram. If not more. Ive been shooting herion for the past 6-7 months. I’ve shot meth plenty of times but it was never my “go-to) I stopped shooting meth for 4-5 months and stopped shooting herion about 1-2 months ago until just recently in the past two weeks ive been shooting both almost everyday. I haven’t shot any herion today only smoked some, but I took a straight shot of meth which is my second time doing so since I stopped. And now my body us over heating and sweaty, my body is shaking so bad I can barley type this message. Right after I took the shot u instantly got very dizzy and started to shake uncontrollably and I still am. About 2-5 mins after I took it I got sick as f*#k to my stomach and threw up my breakfast from this morning. Am I overdosing? Will I end up having stroke or heart attack? Will the shaking stop? What if it doesnt? When should I go to the hospital? I don’t want to go to the hospital if I don’t absolutely need to. I’ve been trying really hard to quit and really dont to go and have them label me as a drug user for the rest of my life. But I also don’t want t to die. What are the next signs of over dosing I should look for? Should I be worried? Or do you think they’ll go away since shaking and vommiting are the only two symptoms I have? Also my eyes are shaking and mouth is almost locking and my teeth are biting down and clenching really hard. I’m over heating and I’m thinking about going to sit in a cold bath. I’m really worried about having a stroke or heart attack although my chest doesnt hurt. When should I be worried? What symptom show I should go to the doctor immediately? I’m only 19, and I’ve been addicted to heroin for the past year and a half. I’m trying so damm hard to be clean and quit but I feel like I have 0% desire since my boyfriend is also a hard addict and my parents are addicts too. My mother and I use drugs together (smoke heroin and meth together almost every time we see each other.) How should I try and get clean without having to go to rehab or seeing the doctor? Heroin is a scary drug cause of the withdrawals the last time I went through them I hadn’t used for 6-7 hours and I had a seizer in my bath tub. Im a very small girl (95 pounds and I’m 4’9-5’0) and My addiction is very bad. I used to use about 3 grams a day (30 points) now I use about 5 points a day to a gram. Which is still a large addiction for someone my size. My boyfriend went to jail and was seizing and hallunacting and almost died. I’m scared to stop cold turkey for those reasons. But the logical part of me says I can’t do this the rest of my life I need to stop. What should I do? How should I try and stop? I really need help and advice. Please reply soon

I’m addicted to meth and cocaine and alcohol. When I get high I have to have a bottle of liquor. Sad part is that. I do get paranoid. But I. Know its all in my head. But at times I think my mate of nine years try to make me think I’m going crazy. But I be damned. We have our problems. And I think thus be her way of trying to get back at me. It has been times when I have been so paranoid. To the point I would lock myself in the bathroom or i would be scared to go outside. I honestly feel in my heart that she does things to try and make me go crazy. But now I have gotten wiser. I swear on my life I don’t care how bad someone has hurt someone else or broken there spouses heart. To try and make someone lose there mind is lower then anything in this world. Especially if they have kids. That’s just pure hate and nothing but the devil in that person heart. Well thank you for your time.

11:25 am May 21st, 2016

I just started useing meth about a week ago, I used last weekend and this weekend. I got a half gram on Friday my first time, mind u I did it all alone. I shot a Lil bit to get the feel for it but was quickly shooting bigger and bigger every time I shot. I was up for 4 days str8 no sleep nothing to eat nor anything to drink. I ended up going to the hospital on a Monday when I couldn’t breath right at work and my whole body got tingley like when your leg falls asleep,but it was mostly in my arms and the rest of my body had it also. I got cleared and they told me I had bronchitist that’s why it was hard for me to breath. I didn’t tell them about the meth and no sleep or eating or drinking anything for 4 days. I actually rember I had two cups of soda and just a couple baby sips of water nothing that would keep me hydrated. So I rest all Monday night and Tuesday, I think I might be addicted to the meth I’m not sure. I rember all day it just being hard to breath like I felt like I needed to take a shot and my breathing would automatically feel better. I had the butterflys in my stomach/chest and I just kept thinking of the high and how my body will feel. So the next day comes around and I’m fine back at work everything smooth not really even thinking about the meth like I was. So its Friday again and I cash my check and buy a gram of crystal and a new rig, cause I tore my other one up on that half gram last week. I believe I didn’t use enough water so it clogged it up and messed the plunger up and, its just a mess. So i get home and i got my gram but no rig taht works properly. So i boil water and try sucking that up and squirting it out a couple times, hopeing to heat up what evers in there and get it out. I ran the needle over my lighter flame a couple time and sucked water up whail still hot, witch helped it a lil bit. Now the problum i had was the lil black rubber peace on the plunger would just fall right off when trying to back pull. So i decited to take vegetable oil and pore alil in the rig to oil it up and have it slide better. So I took the tip off that part the sometime fly’s off when its to clogged and u push to damn hard it pops off and goes flying lol. So I took it off so I could stick something in the time and push the rubber peace out so I got it out and the needle back on and everything, now its time to clean it and get all that oil out. So I sat there for about 15 min sucking water through it and running soap and weather into it the whole 9. Then I took a peace of toilet paper and twisted it up to stick down the barrol to dry and get what ever left over vegetable oil out of the tubeing. So I loaded it up satisfied that its going to at least hold up to give me a shot. So I drop the Lil shards in the tube stick the plunger back in and suck up water and shake and flick away to get it all melted. Once all set I took a Lil blast, gave me the light headed feeling ears kinda crackled vision got a Lil different and I felt the rush and the taste in my mouth. The rig was all done after that, so I had to go on the hunt for one long story short I got one pluse a mother half gram. So now I got 2 different kinds I’m guessing cause there from 2 different people. So I lead up out of the half g that I just bought, put just a Lil bit in it to give it a test to see how were going to take off. I shot it untied and it gave me a Lil rush not what I was looking for but it was alright. So instantly I load up the rig again, this time with the stuff I got first when I got off work I wanted to see who’s was better. So I throw the shards in the rig, down the tube and I load it up with shard a Lil double then the shot I just did of the other stuff. So I stick the plunger in and go get my water in there to start the process. I get it all set and I stick it in and blast away. The min I untired I felt like my head was going to explode, my vision got blury that taste shot right into my mouth like crazy, my chest felt a Lil tight and uncomfortable but not that bad to where I’d worry. I got the rush like crazy and my ears were crackling and popping like crazy. I kinda didn’t feel to good tho I felt like I did a Lil to Mich but I’m not sure how much ur soppose to do,and if the high is soppuse to make u feel that way or not. So I sat down and just read up on meth and I got into it and it felt good. After about 20 min I think I’m not sure if it was longer or not I started to get a headache and my jaw started to hurt even tho I wasn’t tightening my jaw. So I hung out for a few hours and I just did another blast. This time I missed just a Lil bit not to much to worry or have caserne towards I don’t think I should, should I? But once I untied it took about 3 seconds until I got the taste in my mouth, once that came one my head felt a Lil weird and my body got cold. Like my inside felt like they were cool like a mint feeling and I got a headache really fast and just tightening in the stomach and chest and jaw and my vision was fine tho it wasn’t impaired and dizzy looking like my first shot way. I’m just conserned about the coolness my body’s feeling and the headache. Also I’m wondering about the miss it wasn’t a lot cause I stay on it when I’m shooting the min I see my skin rise or I feel the miss I stop and go in somewhere elts. But is it bad for u to miss a Lil bit on a shot or no? Also what can I do, I got a headache and my stomach feels a Lil sick but I think gaht just cause iv ate one thing today a hot dog and a soda. But like I’m feeling tired I’m my eyes and head and my body feels sore mostly from sitting and hunched over texting for the last 8 or so hours with no break. But I’m just wondering what I should do cause I really want to do more, but I don’t want to over do it and overdose or go into a seizure or stroke or even a heart attack. Cause I live alone so there no one here that can help me or even find me in time, I won’t have anyone here until 10 or so probably even later I’ll get a k ock on my door. Any advise on what I should do cause I’m the type to push it to the limit but I’m not familiar with this drug, like I said this is my second time buying a bag. I’m use to coke. I use to bang coke back to back all day and big blast to where I shake and throw up and feel like I’m on the edge of dyeing but I never OD befor. Thank god for that one I’m blesses to not have by the way that I use to go with crack and coke and heroin. But again I need sum advice on what this feeling may be and what I should do thank u so much. Also roughly how much it to much? I’m 5’11 and weight like 150. I have a strong tolerance to coke so idk if that matters for this or not. Also when I pit the shards in the rig I put them in up to about the 15 marker then I slide the plunger in and suck the water up to about 40 units and im useing 1/2 ml rig. Just to help u estimate around how much I’m banging at a time. When I loard the shards is its not like a bunch of Lil peaces, its more decent size one that just fix down the tube and sum shake mixed in as well… Thanks for your time reading this and thinking it over, Its highly appreciated. I just want to make sure I’m not doing it wrong or gonna kill myself with the next blast or not. Cause the body feeling cold I believe can be high or low blood pressure? And if I keep adding onto that I’m almost sertant something can go wrong with me. Thanks again for taking ur time reading this.

When I was 20 I had a friend that slammed meth. I’m that dummy that will try just about anything so we did it several times. I’m not a huge fan of meth so I didn’t struggle with it like he did. I did love the initial rush from injecting so I soon found myself slamming coke to see what that was like. 2 years of my life was pure shit just slamming coke and sometimes meth because I do enjoy that rush from injecting. Fortunately I was able to pull my head out and got sober for nearly 10 years, graduated college and got a good job. Which brings me to now. I moved into a new apartment and several of the tenants around me do meth on weekends. I didn’t know this at first so I began hanging out with them sometimes just drinking beer and chilling. When I did realize they used meth it didn’t really bug me because they are all decent people that have jobs and fly straight during the week. They party Friday and Saturday, come off it Sunday and go back to work Monday like normal people. In some way I had a respect or admiration for that. After several months and a night of too much to drink I did the meth too. They mostly smoke it so that’s what I did. Didn’t really care for it. However, it sparked my interest on how it would feel to slam. It wasn’t long before I went to the pharmacy and got box full of syringes. I started small and usually slam little less than a 20 after work on Friday and I was good for the weekend. I was able to do that for about six months. Eventually it wasn’t good enough and the dose began to increase. I started taking blasts on Saturday as well. Here recently I’ve noticed I’ve felt depressed during the week. I know its because of the drug and how it affects brain chemistry, depleting dopamine namely but also serotonin and basically everything good that your body needs. So I made the decision to stop. It wasn’t hard for me because I don’t even really like meth too much. What I like is the rush from slamming it and then like the next 3 or 4 hours. The next 12 to 20 hours is a nightmare. Okay. I felt like I needed to give all that background before I get to the point of why I’m posting this here today. I didn’t do any meth the past two weekends and have been feeling so much better and I know that I’m done with this terrible

Has anyone ever heard or have knowledge about this scenario? The walls in my room are covered from top to bottom with cobwebs and pictures on the wall are moving. This is typical tweaked stuff I know, what’s freaking me out about it is I’m tweaking like I’ve been on a run with no sleep for a week when I did one shot (a mighty one yes) maybe 16 hours Ago. Is it possibly I’ll never quite be the same after this? I’ve heard stories of people taking way too much dope even just once and a couple marbles get lost and never come back. Why did I pass out? Could I possibly have had a stroke or something of that nature? I don’t seem to have any signs or symptoms of a stroke. But what was with the triple vision, the flashes of white light and the uncontrollable eye movement? I’ve heard of over amping but I have never known or met a person, until now, who claims to have passed out from slamming too much meth.

I started snorting meth when i started hanging out with a couple guys from work because i wanted be part of the circle. Well the 3rd day of it they combined it with powder and we all did it. But suddenly my nose started pouring blood immediately. I thought i had overdosed and was dying but after the bleeding quit i was somewhat relieved to find it was a cut from a shard. So i decided to stick with only very well crushed meth. But one night after being up 3 or 4 days straight we went out by a creek right at dark and for hours until sun-up i was freaking out truly believing there were thousands of snakes watching us. I stopped seeing things but was still paranoid till i went home. Once i got home i saw my neighbors and their family on the porch loading up a truck waving me over. I thought they wanted help but i stepped up the porch step and looked up and nobody was there. But they kept reappearing when i walked away. It freaked me out so i ran home trying to figure out if they were real or not. If they had been real I’d have felt incredibly bad. I fell asleep for a few hours before work but was still paranoid and sometimes seeing things for a couple of days. Now I’m clean and hoping there’s no permanent damage.

Can somebody please tell me what this could mean! I’ve been smoking Meth lately because I want to wing myself off the needle but ever since I’ve been smoking it, my body has been feeling weird! Every time I smoke it I’ll get this pain just on the left side of my head and sometimes it feels like my head is growing but I’m not sure if that’s just me tripping out! Also my heart will start to speed up super fast and every time I move I feel like I’m about to faint or my body will start to feel like it’s kind of wobbly. And sometimes my vision gets blurred or super clear like almost vivid like. And when I take a shower I feel like my body is about to give out on me even when I get out and dry off I still feel that way. Ive never had this happen to me before, it’s so weird! Like is this even normal?? I didn’t even know you could feel like this on ish! It scares me sometimes!

I just lost my brother-in-law to a method over dose in May just two weeks shy of his 56th birthday. His autopsy and toxicology report both state that his cause of death was from a methamphetamine over dose. My heart is broken. You can die from this. Please get help if you are a method user. My son was a user too for years. Now he has lost his beautiful smile and his teeth have rotted out. He is in horrible pain and has no dental insurance and, he had a 4th degree felony charge for possession on his record. He cannot find a job because no one will hire him. He is no longer using but has ruined his life.

Hi, I lost my brother about 6years ago from drugs him n a friend had a bad wreak n he died instantly. They said that the driver was on Xnax and drinking alcohol anyways other day my cousin died. She has been on meth for a long time but this time something different just happened. She went off with her drug buddies and they dropped her off home when she walked in she couldn’t Hardly walk so her sister took her to her bedroom and shut the door n left her in there.. Her sister is on meth also so it was really no big deal to her. Then that night my aunt heard her fall in her room but couldn’t get to the back room to ck on her because she is bad copd n other things. The next morning the neighbors came over n went back there to ck on her she was dead. Black n blue cold n not responding. Does this sound like meth.. The day of her funeral her sister did not come to the funeral she was walking on the streets telling some people that it was her and her boyfriends fought because they had given her harion sorry if that’s a miss spell.. Anyways that next day the sister boyfriend was found dead he has hung his self.. My other cousin that is left is gonna die as well if she don’t get help but what can u do with an adult.. I wished I just had someway to help her before she is next I love both of my cousins we grew up together n I hate having to see all this idk what’s going to be next. Thanks so much!
