Harmful Effects of Meth

The abuse of Methamphetamine is not only harmful to the nervous system and the brain but has serious dental repercussions also. Regular users can suffer from Meth Mouth, which is the deterioration of the teeth and gum of an abuser of Meth. The roots start to decompose also. Abusers suffer from an increased heart rate, sleeplessness, and violent behavior. Over its long term use, paranoia can kick in. Abusers start hallucinating and claim to have experienced bizarre situations.

How is it Consumed?

The names are mostly representative of is physical appearance which is an off-white crystalline powder or chunky substance.

When in powdered form it is usually diluted with other substances. These may include local anesthetics, sugar, mannitol and inositol. This practice is done in order to increase its quantity and increase profits for the dealer. Cocaine may either be snorted, injected or smoked. When snorted the drug enters the bloodstream through the nasal tissues. Injection releases it directly into the bloodstream whereas smoking causes cocaine vapor to enter the bloodstream into the lungs.

The Risks Involved?

Cocaine vaccine prevents the cocaine from reaching the brain, but it does not provide limit or decrease the cravings. This can have serious implications. The addicts may become overdosed as they try to settle their craving and attempt to reach the same high to which they were familiar. Too much cocaine can lead to vascular damage more than can be repaired. The vaccine will best produce results, if successful, coupled with therapy.

Vaccines as Part of Addiction Treatment

Vaccines actually prevent, rather than treat a serious disease. So while a cocaine vaccine may eventually be a used as tool for treating cocaine addiction, it is better suited to be used as a prevention medium in the initial development of addiction. This would help curb a dependency on the drug early on.
