As a narcotic, amphetamine is particularly common in the party scene because of its effects, such as suppressing fatigue or increasing self-confidence. Speed stimulates the central nervous system. It has a similar stimulating effect as the body’s own adrenalin.
In mentally instable people it can under circumstances come to acute psychotic reactions (paranoia, persecution mania).
People with mental illnesses, cardiovascular problems, liver and kidney diseases or diabetes should abstain from consuming speed (amphetamine)!
It can result in small wounds in the nasal mucosa when using sharp-edged pipes (e.g. bank notes, plastic straws) to snort with, and minor traces of blood can stick to the pipe. There is a danger of infection (herpes, hepatitis C + B) if the same pipe is being used by more people!
Attend to your nose! Chop up the powder as finely as possible and perform a nasal douche now and then.
Ingest after consumption in order to prevent weight loss! Counteract acalcinosis (milk products, nuts) and make sure to get a sufficient liquid intake though water and vitamin-packed juices!
When using speed the danger of miscalculating the risk in a given situation exists. It heightens the willingness to cross personal boundaries and abstain from safer sex. That increases the risk of infection with HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
The cock is less sensitive on speed and it can be more difficult to ejaculate. That often turns fucking into a longer, harder affair with danger of small, bleeding injuries. Here HIV, hepatitis C and other sexually transmitted diseases can easily be transmitted.
Does the intercourse last longer, change the condom every 30 minutes.
Sex and speed only work under mutual consent and trust. Clear beforehand which sexual practices are wanted by both partners and which are not
Only consume so much that you still can defend yourself and still recognise the defence mechanisms of your partner.
Before getting down to business, get sufficient amounts of sex utsils (gloves, condoms, lubricant) ready.
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 & Speed:
Take drugs and HIV medicine temporally offset. That may be able to lessen the interaction a bit. Always dose drugs low when taken simultaneously with medicine. The night often turns long – bring enough medicine along and keep your intake times. Talk to your doctor about the interaction between your HIV medicine and intoxicants!
Simultaneous consumption of speed and protease inhibitors (Ritonavir (Norvir/Kalera)) can cause dangerous agent enhancements in your blood. Caution, there is a great danger of unintentional overdosing. Similarly the effective level of the HIV medicine can increase and through that increase the side effects.
Talk to your doctor about the interaction of your HIV drugs with intoxicants!
