|Amphetamines Drug Facts
Amphetamine, dextroamphetamine, methamphetamine, and their various salts, all fit into a group of drugs called amphetamines. With a similar chemical makeup, people who swallow, inject or smoke the drug have no idea which one that they have actually taken. These are horribly addictive drugs and a real toxic pollutant in your body.
The effects of the drug mirror that of crack cocaine except it takes longer for the drug to hit your system and the effects typically last longer. Amphetamines run rampant in your Central Nervous System and stay there without being metabolized, which is the cause for the longevity of the effects from the drug.. Amphetamines also emit the effects for a longer period of time because so much of the drug is unchanged when it is administered. Schizophrenia type psychosis, where increased paranoia, hallucinations and other bizarre mental conditions can develop with chronic use of Amphetamines.
