Recognizing the Signs of Anxiety

As tolerance develops, an indication of addiction, people may need higher dosages of amphetamines to get the desired results.

Excessive cravings, depression, irritability, and weariness are some of the withdrawal symptoms people may encounter when trying to reduce or stop using amphetamines.

Addiction can cause people to prioritize getting and using drugs over fulfilling key responsibilities like employment, school, or family duties.

People who are addicted to amphetamines may choose to live alone, which encourages them to continue abusing drugs and retreat from social interactions and relationships.

When people prioritize obtaining amphetamines over financial stability, it can be a sign of addiction and cause debt or financial crises. This is demonstrated by persistent spending on amphetamines despite financial troubles.
