Speed

THE EFFECTS

What are the effects of speed?
Speed makes users feel very up, alert and energised, but can also make them agitated and aggressive.  It can also have other effects:

  • Speed makes people feel wide awake, excited and chatty. 
  • Clubbers take it because it gives them the energy to dance for hours without getting tired.
  • Amphetamines were once the main ingredient in diet pills because they stop people feeling hungry.
  • Speed use can lead to agitation, panics or even a psychotic episode (this is a mental state when you see or hear things which aren't there and have delusions).
