The truth about Meth

Chronic meth users can exhibit violent behavior, anxiety, confusion, insomnia, and psychotic features including paranoia, aggression, visual and auditory hallucinations...

Methamphetamine is a stimulant that speeds up the body’s system and comes as pill or powder. The drug is available in prescription as Desoxyn® to treat obesity and ADHD. Crystal meth resembles glass fragments and is an illegally altered version of the prescription drug that is cooked with over-the-counter drugs in meth labs.

Clandestinely produced meth is mainly made with diverted products that contain pseudoephedrine.
