Effects Of Crack

Effects of CrackIf you are worried about the effects of crack to your body, it is important that you realize this is a powerful drug that will have negative consequences to your health and your life in more ways than you would imagine.

Crack is derived from cocaine, which is one of the most highly addictive and dangerous drugs on the streets today and carries a high risk of potentially serious side-effects. Some of these side-effects can develop after a single use of crack and addiction seems to occur more quickly if crack is smoked.

Effects and Symptoms

Some of the crack effects can include mild to moderate symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, increased body temperature and aggressive or paranoid behavior. The more intense symptoms include rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, decreased appetite, and nausea or vomiting. The severe symptoms can include lung trauma, seizures, heart attack, stroke or sudden death. The risk of death is greatly increased if crack is used with other drugs or alcohol. Research shows that when alcohol and crack combine in the liver, a new substance is produced known as coca ethylene, which intensifies the euphoric effects. Not only does crack have negative effects to your body, it also creates havoc in the neurotransmitters of the brain by increasing dopamine levels. Dopamine is a chemical in the brain associated with pleasure and motor skills, and helps other brain cells send or receive signals.

After prolonged abuse of crack, tolerance levels increase and the user will increase the dose of crack in order to achieve the desired euphoria, and this behavior will result in a higher risk for adverse side-effects. The effects to your body from crack are serious and life-threatening, and will require professional medical treatment by addiction specialists to ensure safe and lasting withdrawal and recovery.
