What long term side effects can result from cronic methylenedioxypyrovalerone abuse?

What long term side effects can result from cronic methylenedioxypyrovalerone abuse?

Cloud9: Mdpv is a designer drug with powerful stimulant effects, much stronger than methylphenidate. It can be very toxic, with blood pressure elevations, panic attacks, confusional states, and death.. I am unfamiliar with long term adverse effects, but imagine they are serious. It causes highly reinforced self- administration, despite toxicity. This is one of the "bath salts." a dangerous drug. ...Read more

What happens if I use Xanax to get high for fun sometimes but i don't abuse it am i gonna have side effects or its safe?

What happens if I use Xanax to get high for fun sometimes but i don't abuse it am i gonna have side effects or its safe?

Using it to get high: Is the same as abusing it. It doesn't mean that you are addicted to it it does mean however that you have either obtained the drug illegally or you are using it against the directions given by your doctor, and quite possibly fraudulently. It is not advisable to use Alprazolam to get high off of . You simply don't know when you're going to pass out or black out. If you were to drive, you could get arrested for driving under the influence of a drug.You could take too much and potentially stop breathing.You could also find yourself in other potentially compromising situations. Just simply take my advice and don't do it. Your life is worth more than this. Get help if you need to. Best wishes. ...Read more

What are the side effects ritalin abuse and withdrawals ?

What are the side effects ritalin abuse and withdrawals ?

Side Effects: Ritalin is a good drug, but it does have significant side effects. It can cause high heart rate, appetite suppression, and even psychological side effects (hallucinations, etc) in some patients. It does have addictive/abusive potential. So, it does a good job when used correctly, but you just have to keep in close follow up with your doctor. You can be quite sleepy if you abruptly stop ritalin. ...Read more
