    Meth Use Could Increase Risk of Parkinson?s Disease

    Meth Use Could Increase Risk of Parkinson?s Disease

    A study shows that individuals that heavily use meth may have a higher than normal risk for Parkinson's disease. These findings are very preliminary but there is some evidence showing it could. Previous use of Benzedrine and Dexedrine looks like it could be associated with the increased risk of this disease.

    There were 66,434 people that took part in in the Multiphasic Health Checkup Cohort Exam between the years 1964 and 1973. The participants that took part in this study were asked if they had used Benzedrine or Dexedrine very often. They were also asked if they had used weight loss drugs. The report found that individuals that had taken medications for weight loss didn't have an increased risk for developing Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease was diagnosed in 1,154 individuals though. Individuals that had reported using Benzedrine or Dexedrine were at an increased risk for developing the disease.
