Methamphetamine Overview

Methamphetamine[note 1] (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that is mainly used as a recreational drug and less commonly as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity. Methamphetamine was discovered in 1893 and exists as two enantiomers: levo-methamphetamine and dextro-methamphetamine.[note 2] Methamphetamine properly refers to a specific chemical, the racemic free base, which is an equal mixture of levomethampheta...

methamphetamine and accuracy of post-mortem blood levels
Post a Reply
My son's dorsal was ran over by a semi-truck. The post-mortem blood levels showed lethal amounts of methamphetamine. The insurance company did not pay because of lethal amounts of methamphetamine and riding a bike they claim he was driving while impaired. After trauma to the chest and the fact he was dead and the autopsy blood was drawn 3 days after his demise, are these readings admissible?

Found Clear Capsule With White Powder Very Small Cristal Like Pieces Inside No Numbers Or Markings Of Any Kind
7 Replies RSS
small clear capsule white powder with tiny crystals in the powder and no markings of any kind on the capsule - im a little concerned because it was found by a school ## It's Molly. ## So true. If it's crystals brown, white, clear, purple, pink, it's Molly or amphetamine. You can buy a test kit. It could be MDA or methylone which has different toxicity levels and dangers associated with each chemical. ## MOST LIKELY THIS IS METHAMPHETAMINE - LOTS OF PEOPLE USE GELL CAPS TO SWALLOW IT TO GET A BETTER RUSH. ## Take a black light to the crystals. If they glow purple then it is for sure a Molly, which glows under black light. Use a bulb from hardware store. ## It may be opioids too, mixed with quanine and bonita.. the cut makes it crystally ## It probably has MSM in it for joints...

can methamphetamine cause degenerative nerve disease ande scaiatic sciato

Can taking methamphetamine cause a sudden acute attack of painful sciatica and degenerative disc disease? I was fine when I went to bed but woke up with it and could not walk and was crippled with unbearable pain that's continued for a month and is still going on. Dr.prescribed neurontin which doesn't help at all. Help with medication suggestions please! ## I'm very sorry to hear about your debilitating side effects. From what I've been reading online, many of the symptoms associated with Methamphetamine use are often considered to be sudden and in some cases severe. This drug literally destroys from the inside out (lowering your body's immunity/resistance to illness in general); so I wouldn't say it's not possible to become crippled on methamphetamine, even ...

Symptoms From Exposure to residue from Methamphetamine
1 Reply RSS
Last year, I relocated to be with my partner and few counties over and she lived in an apartment complex. After my very first overnight visit with her, when I returned home, totally out of the blue I got a horrible fever, headache, extreme tiredness and a sore throat. I just blamed it on the flu and never gave it a second thought. I took some Motrin and Airborne and fell asleep. I woke up the next day and all the symptoms were gone minus the headache. I eventually moved in with my partner for a few months and I kept getting these horrible fevers and headaches just out of the blue for no apparent reason and usually after taking some Motrin and falling to sleep, the symptoms alleviate or disappear. I got these symptoms several times while living with her, I'd say as often as once week...

White cross stimulant pill
1 Reply RSS
I took many in the late 60's and early 70's. They were effective, very clean, and probably methamphetamine hydrochloric salts. They were very small tablets. Later on, around 1976 or so they started using caffeine, so that ended that drugs realm and into the methaqualone era that took many, many good people from this Earth. ## I'm surprised that they don't manufacture this medication illegally instead of methampetamine. I would never consider taking amptetamines, but I did take white cross pills to help me get through late night studying.

yellow and black capsule pill with no markings
3 Replies RSS
Found black and yellow capsules in my kids room they have no marking and no imprint. ## @Sumdub, Unfortunately all FDA approved prescriptions are required to have some sort of marking or imprint for identification, so my thinking is that it could literally be anything from a dietary supplement to a foreign, OTC or illicit drug. Have you tried talking with your kid to see if they can provide any information on what it's allegedly supposed to be? Since you found it in their bedroom I'd imagine they'd probably know something; and being the head of the household you should have every right to know what substances are brought into your home (if not but for his/her own safety). Another option would be to have the pill's contents analyzed by a lab in order to ensure an accurate...

Effects of stopping Methamphetamine
4 Replies RSS
I've been prescribed methamphetamine my whole life. I am now 55 years old, 80 lbs over weight and, I want to know when my body will be drug free? I also want to know if quitting cold turkey is gonna kill me? I know a lot of people who quit and died within a year. It's kept me scared to quit. ## Hello, Blondie! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you're going through. I understand your fears, but in most cases, it isn't the quitting that kills someone, it's the damage they've done to their bodies over time from using it, it can really take a toll on your heart and liver. Have you considered getting medical help to come off of it? That would be the best solution, to help keep you out of danger. The most risky withdrawal symptom listed by the FDA is seizures,...

Remedy for Methamphetamine sores
1 Reply RSS
Is there an over the counter remedy for methamphetamine sores? I have been sober going on two weeks after using for 5 months. I want the sores on my legs gone. I would pick where they couldn't be seen. Now I wanna wear dresses and shorts. Advice please. ## Hello! Kaykay! How are you doing? Kudos for becoming sober, that's very hard to do. As to the sores, are they scars, scabs, or still open sores? The proper solution depends on the state they are in. For instance, according to the NIH, scars might require microdermabrasion by a dermatologist, or a special scar treatment ointment, which can help them to fade and be less visible. Some people have very good luck with them and get rid of their scars entirely. Open sores, or scabs, are just going to take time to heal, so they should...
