Methamphetamine????????????? methamphetamine (Methylamphetamine) - street name; 'crystal meths' or 'ice' is not a substitute for amphetamine at all!!! It is a stimulant drug a…nd has highly powerful and addictive properties. It is a much stronger substance than amphetamine and has similar affects to that of crack cocaine (although longer lasting) Unlike substitutes available for withdrawal from heroin there is no substitute for amphetamine only substance misuse key working sessions or rehabilitation There is no amphetamine maintenance program similar to methadone maintenance, though tailored amphetamines are appearing on the market that allow for slow dispersal throughout the day via absorption in the lower intestine and are digested and made active in the blood. Stepping down from uppers is unpleasant, you may not feel as confident, as motivated, or as happy as you'd been. This passes with time. I would ask your doctor to help you step down with an extended release preparation, or look into Vyvanse and ween off. Be honest with a doctor. You may get snubbed, but at least mention to your GP first and see what he thinks of the taper idea. I would recommend simply quitting and being miserable for a bit, but if you want to try the aforementioned idea out, it's worth a shot.
Physical addiction or dependency happens in the body when you become addicted to hard or prescription drugs and the symptoms are aching bones and muscles usually when your bod…y needs more of the drug you have made it dependany on and for your body to function normally and usually the ammount of the drug that it requires to function properly increases with time and an addiction happens in the mind almost like a habit whereas no physical symptoms are obvious yet you cannot function properly without it because it is all you can think about when you are not having your fix of whatever you have become addicted to such as gambling smoking working out etc you can become addicted to anything that you get a great deal of pleasure from so the difference between the two is that a physical addiction hooks your body and an addiction hooks your mind basically.
Anything--a substance or a behavior--can be addicting for a given person; different people develop addictions to different things. So, yes, amphetamines can …be and often are addictive, but you won't know until you take the gamble. And if you discover you are someone who is chemically wired to become addicted to amphetamines, that's what you'll be. Sometimes the addiction is fatal. Not all addicts can be successfully treated; addiction is never cured, its progression can only be suspended.
Amphetamines are stimulants which stimulate the central nervous systenm to increase the amount of chemicals on the body. They can raise blood pressure and can sometimes …stimulate appetite supression. amphetamines can lead to heart attacks. they are also VERY VERY highly addictive. They can lead to paranoia and when abuse continues for long periods of time, can lead to permanent brain damage.
To keep it simple, physiological dependence occurs when the individual needs the presence of a chemical in his or her system in order to feel relatively normal. At that point,… using has become less an option than a need. The entire addiction syndrome includes physiological dependence, but also social, emotional and spiritual issues that stem from the effects of the chemicals and the need to keep them flowing, such as lying, making excuses, stealing, loss of spiritual values such as compassion, forgiveness and joy, and so forth -- along with an overpowering fear that somehow the chemicals will not be available when needed, and the fear of withdrawal and the changes that accompany abstinence. Note: I use "chemicals" instead of "drugs" because some addictions are related to self-generated brain chemicals, not just stimulation from drugs.
Captain Obvious says: if you take amphetamines every day you became an addict soon
don't do it.
Addiction can be a physical dependence. Physical addiction is not the only form of addiction. There is also psychological addiction, which is also considered addiction. A ph…ysical dependence and a psychological dependence often coincide with one another, but they don't always have to. Usually, psychological dependence comes first. One could be addicted to alcohol psychologically, meaning they have overwhelming desire to the point that it feels like a need to drink. Drinking too much alcohol on a regular basis can lead to a physical alcohol addiction, meaning the person has to drink alcohol for their body to function. The psychological addiction may even be gone at this point, and they not want to drink anymore, however the physical addiction is still there. Another example could be in marijuana. Marijuana can be very psychologically addictive, however it causes no physical addiction. Either way, an addiction is an addiction, be it physical, psychological, or both.
I have 1mg tablets of Ativan that I take when I get anxiety symptoms. There have been some months where I've had to take a few a week and other months where I've had to take n…one at all. I think as long as you are not using it daily and monitoring your usage, dependency should not be an issue.
Once you become a PICKLE you can never go back to being a CUCUMBER. The invisible line, you can never know when that can happen. So Drink Responsibly
¡Physical effects of amphetamine can include hyperactivity, dilated pupils, vasoconstriction, blood shot eyes, flushing, restlessness, dry mouth, bruxism, headache tachycardi…a, bradycardia, tachypnea, hypertension, hypotension, fever, diaphoresis, diarrhea ,constipation, blurred vision, aphasia, dizziness, twitching, insomnia, numbness, palpitations, arrhythmias, tremors, dry and/or itchy skin, acne, pallor, convulsions, and with chronic and/or high doses, seizure, stroke, coma, heart attack and death can occur. There is also significant research which highlights the changes amphetamine produces in the dopaminergic system, even in clinical doses. One possible interpretation is that neurotoxic effects exist even with doses approved for medical use.
That person would be called an alcoholic.
It's open book, just look up it in the previous chapters if you can't find it on the net.
A physical addiction occurs as a chemical interferes with the balance of the brain's chemistry. In a natural state, the pleasure center of our brains are stimulated by natural…ly occurring opiates within the body. The result of the stimulation is a sense of physical and psychological pleasure produced by the brain. Drugs, however, push aside the natural opiates and stimulate the pleasure center, at a more intense rate than natural opiates. The brain stops producing the natural opiates, and anticipates the outside drug, this starts a physical obligation by the user to provide a drug of choice. A physical addiction can end in seven days without taking the drug before your body restarts producing the natural opiates, but a psychological addiction lasts a lifetime.

Although amphetamines don't carry a particularly high risk of physical dependence that is not to say they are not addictive. Amphetamines primarily stimulate dopamine receptor…s and imitate dopamine's affects making amphetamines some of the most addictive drugs known to man. So. In short, although the physiological withdrawals won't be especially intense or acute, the psychological aspects of amphetamine use are not to be taken lightly.
