    Dangers of Meth Use

    Meth is one of the most horrific drugs sold on the streets and it's not only highly addictive, users can overdose if they use an amount they're unable to tolerate. Drugs affect people differently and even a small amount of meth could possibly be a lethal dose whether you're a first time user or not. Unlike opiate overdose, there is no antidote available to counter the effects of methamphetamine overdose.

    The meth that's available on the streets not only varies in the toxic ingredients used to manufacture the drug but also varies in potency levels. If a meth user had sensitivity to any of the poisonous chemicals used to manufacture the drug or the strength was too powerful, they could have easily taken a potentially lethal dose. Methamphetamine overdose is very serious and requires immediate medical attention.

    3. Severe hypertension

    7. Heart attack
    8. Possible death
