Meth can also cause extreme weight loss, malnutrition, severe dental problems, anxiety, confusion, insomnia, hallucinations and mood disturbances. Psychotic symptoms caused from chronic meth use can possibly last long after a person stops abusing the drug because of the serious impact methamphetamine has on the brain.
