The most commonly misused substances are narcotics. Narcotics are the most dangerous drugs for one-time use, with a high risk of life-changing consequences that include death. The contributing factor to the extreme danger of narcotics is their unknown origin. Narcotics are often homemade in a bathtub, using chemicals and substances that can be fatal when used. The use of narcotics is associated with nightclubs, and nightlife in general, which makes it prone to be mixed with alcohol or other drugs. Mixing narcotics can become addictive and, over time, increase the risk of heart attacks or strokes. Following is a list of the short and long-term symptoms of narcotics. Most people who use narcotics will experience these symptoms at some point if they do not stop using:

  • Constipation
  • Neglected Hygiene
  • Congestion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Itchiness
  • Rapid Heart Rate
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Lower Kidney Function
  • Cognitive Decline
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke

Research using brain scans and other studies have shown the psychological damage narcotics have on the brain, even in a single, one-time use. The permanent consequences on an individual’s mental health can lead to depression, anxiety, and psychosis. In addition, in order to assure “repeat customers” through addiction, the unsafe manufacturing, homemade process very often includes other dangerous additives.
