The Effects of Meth

Also known as meth, speed, ice, and crystal, the abuse of methamphetamine can produce a wide range of characteristic effects. These include:

  • Spiking high body temperature and heart rate
  • Restless energy, often leading to insomnia
  • Mood alteration and violent responses
  • Symptoms comparable to anxiety disorders

Behind the wheel, these effects can produce explosions of road rage, an unwillingness to follow traffic laws, and increased acceleration. As such, methamphetamine use can underscore a large number of traffic incidents, as abusers are, at times, unable to control themselves from violent feelings.
