Symptoms Of Drug Addiction

Stimulants

Signs that you or a loved one may have a problem with stimulant abuse

Drug addiction is a slippery slope. Just because someone shows the illusion of functioning in society does not mean they don't have a problem. Additionally, just because something can be obtained legally, like alcohol or prescription drugs does not make them any less dangerous and addictive than illegal or synthetic drugs.

When the high wears off and the drug of choice isn't obtainable, people act irrationally - this is a desperate space for the addict. Being 'dry' or without drugs, people will resort to measures they wouldn't normally consider in their sober and sane state. The craving need of another fix is a difficult demon to handle. Never underestimate this level of desire to get high - this is not the person you normally know and logic will not typically reach a person in this state.

Symptoms of stimulant addiction

Stimulants include amphetamines, cocaine, meth (methamphetamine) and methylphenidate (Ritalin).

 They are often used and abused in search of a "high," or to boost energy, to improve performance at work or school, or to lose weight or control appetite.

Symptoms of use can include:

Behavior changes or aggression
Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
Delusions and hallucinations
Depression as the drug wears off
Dilated pupils
Feeling of exhilaration and excess confidence
