Methamphetamine (Yaba / Tina and Christine / meth / ice)

Methamphetamine, commonly known as meth, is a powerful central nervous system stimulant. It belongs to the amphetamine class of drugs and is known for its highly addictive properties and potential for abuse.

Methamphetamine can be taken orally, smoked, snorted, or injected. It increases the release and blocks the reuptake of certain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, resulting in an intense rush of euphoria, increased energy, and heightened alertness.

Methamphetamine is known by various street names, including Yaba, Tina and Christine, meth, and ice. These names are often used to refer to different forms or variations of methamphetamine.

The use of methamphetamine carries significant risks and potential harms. Short-term effects can include increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, decreased appetite, insomnia, and intense euphoria. Long-term use can lead to serious physical and mental health issues, including addiction, weight loss, dental problems (often referred to as “meth mouth”), psychosis, cognitive impairment, and damage to the cardiovascular system.

Methamphetamine is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance in the United States and is illegal in most countries. The production, distribution, and possession of methamphetamine are strictly regulated due to its high abuse potential and associated dangers.

If you or someone you know is struggling with methamphetamine use or addiction, it’s important to seek help from a healthcare professional, addiction specialist, or a local support service. They can provide appropriate guidance, support, and treatment options tailored to the specific needs of the individual.
