Like any drug, the exact effects of crystal meth depend on the person. Some people become myopically focused on certain tasks, while others will be unable to sit still for even the briefest of moments. Users are able to stay up for days or weeks at a time, and most users report having a euphoric feeling after using the drug.
Rapid weight loss and malnourishment are common crystal meth effects, leading to the health problems associated with those deficiencies, up to and including loss of eye-sight and fainting spells. A condition known as “meth mouth” is becoming widespread for those who use crystal meth regularly according to many dental professions and those working in corrections. The condition causes the teeth to rot, in some cases costing an addict every tooth they have. In particular, skin lesions on the face and premature aging are just two physical effects of crystal meth use.
Crystal Meth by nature disrupts sleep patterns. Users can stay awake for days, even weeks which can result in psychotic and unpredictable behavior. Visual and auditory hallucinations to extreme paranoia are all very common in meth addiction. In some cases, users may not ever recover from the effects, suffering permanent brain damage. Studies show that even a single one-time use of meth can take the brain as long as three years to fully recover.
