METHAMPHETAMINE (mAMP 1000)
Methamphetamine is an addictive stimulant drug that strongly
activates certain systems in the brain. Methamphetamine is closely
related chemically to amphetamine, but the central nervous system
effects of Methamphetamine are greater. Methamphetamine is made in
illegal laboratories and has a high potential for abuse and
dependence. The drug can be taken orally, injected, or inhaled.
Acute higher doses lead to enhanced stimulation of the central
nervous system and induce euphoria, alertness, reduced appetite,
and a sense of increased energy and power. Cardiovascular responses
to Methamphetamine include increased blood pressure and cardiac
arrhythmias. More acute responses produce anxiety, paranoia,
hallucinations, psychotic behavior, and eventually, depression and
exhaustion. The effects of Methamphetamine generally last 2-4 hours
and the drug has a half-life of 9-24 hours in the body.
Methamphetamine is excreted in the urine as amphetamine and
oxidized and delaminated derivatives. However, 10-20% of
Methamphetamine is excreted unchanged. Thus, the presence of the
parent compound in urine indicates Methamphetamine use.
Methamphetamine is generally detectable in the urine for 3-5 days,
depending on urine pH level.
