What is Meth Addiction?
Methamphetamine mainly affects the brain and is known for creating feelings of pleasure, increase energy and elevate mood. Methamphetamines often causes insomnia due to increased energy, and users stay awake and do continuous activity without feeling the need for sleep.
Methamphetamines, like regular amphetamines, also suppress a person’s appetite and are sometimes used by people trying to lose weight quickly. Dangerous weight loss is a very common side effect and can lead to more health issues.
Most of the pleasurable effects of methamphetamine are believed to be a result from the release of very high levels of the dopamine. Dopamine is involved in motivation, the experience of pleasure, and motor function. Methamphetamine is known to cause the release of twelve times the amount of dopamine that food, sex and other pleasurable activities release. The extreme pleasure feelings are a main factor in meths high level of addiction. The elevated release of dopamine produced by meth is also thought to contribute to the drug’s harmful effects on nerve terminals in the brain.
