Methamphetamine, commonly shortened as “meth,” is a highly addictive stimulant. The drug has a crystalline structure that has earned it other names including “ice,” “crystal,” or “crystal meth.” Although methamphetamine does have some medicinal properties, such as treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), it is more often used recreationally. The addictive properties of the drug mean it can be easily abused. Most meth users struggle to quit, and can suffer from the physical and mental effects of the drug.

In the short term, meth use produces the same effects as other stimulants. A user may experience feelings of euphoria and increased activity. As dependence increases, users require greater quantities of the drug to achieve the same effects. Users may also find that they are unable to feel any pleasure when they are not using meth.
As a person uses greater quantities of meth, the drug will take a toll on their mental and physical wellbeing. Meth use can cause significant damage to tissues and internal organs, and contributes to heavy tooth decay as well. The mental effects of long term meth use may include anxiety, paranoia, psychosis, depression, hallucinations, and insomnia.
Meth is produced by combining pharmaceutical products and chemicals. It can be created with cheap, easy to acquire substances such as cold medicines that contain pseudoephedrine. Because meth can be made inexpensively, it is often produced in highly dangerous conditions and may be cut with other hazardous substances. The conditions under which a lot of meth is produced only adds to the risks of using this dangerous drug.
Meth addiction can develop quickly, sometimes after as little as one or two doses. Only a licensed physician can diagnose methamphetamine use disorder, but there are a number of telltale physical and behavioral signs of meth abuse.
