Delusional episodes, using Methamphetamine

Not to mention the different health risks, users of Methamphetamine tend to have many different traits such as visibly faster speech, poor hygiene or tooth decay. However, there are also many more health risks associated with the use of this drug. Since it typically creates a sense of euphoria and tends to create many sleepless nights, methamphetamine can cause hallucinations, paranoia, delusions and even cause the users behavior to turn violent. Meaning it is very difficult for the person using this drug to determine whether or not what they are seeing, or hearing is real or not. Long term use or dependency can cause even cause psychosis.

One of the most common symptoms of a person who uses methamphetamine is called “meth mites,” which is a type of that causes the user to pick at their own skin as a result of seeing insects that are not actually there. When a person has these “meth mites,” they may feel or see insects crawling in or on their skin. As a result, they tend to pick at themselves so badly they cause scarring and often infections. Fortunately, treatment is available, but the person will likely have to be stabilized first.
