Amphetamine was discovered in 1887. Amphetamines is a racemic drug that “stimulates the central nervous system: used chiefly to lift the mood in depressive states and to control the appetite in cases of obesity.”1 Amphetamines are used to treat ADHD, Narcolepsy, in addition, to effective weight loss and fatigue. “Users are likely to behave or act irrationally while under the influence of amphetamine and often resort to impasse behaviors in an effort to stay “high” on amphetamine once a pattern of abuse has been established.”2 This spike generally results in increased alertness, appetite suppression, increased energy and feelings of power.3 Most people don’t recognize an amphetamine addiction until it’s too late. Withdrawal from amphetamines must be done through doctor supervision.
Amphetamines can cause unrepairable damage such as heart attacks, strokes, seizures, and irregular heartbeat. “At therapeutic doses, amphetamine causes emotional and cognitive effects such as euphoria, change in desire for sex, increased wakefulness, and improved cognitive control. It induces physical effects such as decreased reaction time, fatigue resistance, and increased muscle strength. Larger doses of amphetamine may impair cognitive function and induce rapid muscle breakdown. Drug addiction is a serious risk with large recreational doses but is unlikely to arise from typical long-term medical use at therapeutic doses. Very high doses can result in psychosis (e.g., delusions and paranoia) which rarely occurs at therapeutic doses even during long-term use. Recreational doses are generally much larger than prescribed therapeutic doses and carry a far greater risk of serious side effects.”4 Amphetamines mixed with alcohol is deadly!
Think about this one thoroughly before you try them. Weight loss isn’t worth the risk!
