Long-term effects of Crystal Meth use can include brain damage (similar to the effects of Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease), coma, stroke or death. Chronic users may also develop distinct physical symptoms, as demonstrated by before and after pictures in the Faces of MethTM program. Signs of chronic use include weight loss, tooth decay and cracked teeth (“Meth Mouth”), psychosis and hallucinations, sores on the body from picking at skin, and formication (an abnormal skin sensation akin to "bugs crawling on skin").
Slang terms for meth include: speed, crank, chalk, go-fast, zip, tina and cristy.
The many damaging effects to the users brain due to meth use are reversible. However, not all of them are resolved just by immediate abstinence. Some of the effects can take up to 6 months of sobriety before they resolve.
Paranoia is a common side effect of meth use. A person who is high on meth may believe that people are watching their every move or that someone is out to get them.
Birch or Nazi is a method used to create meth. This method gets its name from its chemical reaction (Birch-Bekenser Reduction) and WWII German inventors.
