How does it effect the user?
Meth affects the central nervous system and users may experience increased physical activity, wakefulness and insomnia, decreased appetite, irritability/aggression, anxiety, nervousness, confusion, tremors, convulsions, and heart attack. Meth is addictive and users can quickly develop a tolerance, needing larger amounts to get high. Chronic use can cause paranoia, hallucinations, repetitive/compulsive behavior, and delusions of parasites or insects crawling under the skin. Users can obsessively scratch their skin to get rid of the imagined insects.
