The substance methamphetamine is known as Crystal, Crystal-Speed, Crystal-Meth or meth. Other scene names are „Yaba“ (= crazy medicine), „Tina“; „Piko“, „Hard Pep“, „Ice“, „Glass“, „Crank“ or „Pervitin“.
The effective time can be 5 to 30 hours, depending on the degree of purity.
Crystal targets the nerve endings directly. The rapid decrease of the euphoric effect is due to the exhaustion of the neurotransmitter reserves.
As one’s own physical limits are exceeded, there is a risk of physical collapse or – in the case of long-term consumption – a deterioration of the body.
Mixed drug consumption, even alcohol, puts even more strain on the body! Crystal seduces to uncontrolled drinking, because the alcohol is not noticeable under Crystal.
Keep your hands off the wheel, even if you feel fit and superior. Crystal is detectable in urine for up to a week and in blood for about 6 hours.
No consumption during pregnancy, cardiovascular diseases or high blood pressure.
If anxiety attacks occur, calmly act on the person, take him/her to a quiet place and offer him/her some alcohol-free drink. Dextrose, magnesium or juices are always good.
Try not to take any other medicines if you cannot sleep – mixed consumption puts additional strain on the body.
Crystal can lead to a rapid dose increase and tolerance development, as well as psychological dependence.

Crystal increases the willingness to cross boundaries deliberately and to renounce safe sex. This increases the risk of infection with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
Sex and Crystal only work with mutual agreement and trust. On Crystal you may do things that you would not normally do. Clarify in advance which sex practices you both want and which you don’t want.
Sex on Crystal can be very aggressive and without much partner reference. Only consume enough so that you can defend yourself or still recognize your partner’s defensive signals.
Before getting down to business, make sure you have enough safer sex paraphernalia (gloves, condoms, lubricant) ready.
On Cystal the sensation of pain and touch from your cock is usually reduced and it can be more difficult to cum.
If the fuck takes longer, change the condom every half hour.
Pay attention to your body! If you notice any abnormalities, go to the doctor immediately. When having changing sex partners get tested for sexually transmitted diseases every 6 months and get vaccinated against hepatitis A/B.
HIV & Crystal
Take drugs and HIV medication at staggered intervals. This may reduce interactions somewhat. Always keep the dose of drugs low when taking medication at the same time. Often the night will be long – take enough drugs with you and keep to your schedule. Talk to your doctor about the interaction of your HIV medication with intoxicants!
The mode of action of protease inhibitors (ritonavir (Norvir/Kaletra)) can lead to dangerous increases in the level of Crystal in the blood. Caution, there is a great danger of unintentional overdoses. Likewise, the effective level of the HIV drugs can increase, thereby increasing their side effects.
