SIDE-EFFECTS OF COCAINE USE

Cocaine use affects your physical and mental health, often at the same time. Many users experience increased alertness and energy while feeling euphoric and talkative. It’s these effects that give cocaine its addictive nature. Severe common mental side effects include anxiety; irritability; paranoia; and/or volatile or aggressive behavior.

Short-term physical or physiological side effects may include abdominal pain; dizziness; increased blood pressure, body temperature, and heart rate; nausea; restlessness; and/or tremors. It’s also possible to experience significant, if not fatal, side effects after one use, such as:

  • Coma;
  • Changes in heart rhythm, including
  • Irregular heartbeat;
  • Heart attack;
  • Seizure; and/or
  • Stroke.

LONG-TERM HEALTH RISKS OF COCAINE USE

Cocaine overdose deaths rose by more than 250% during a six-year period ending in 2020. Part of the consequential increase can be attributed to people using cocaine in combination with synthetic opioids. Aside from the risk of an overdose, long-term cocaine abuse causes damage to your body, with some effects not appearing until years after use.

Because cocaine is often binged consumed, the repeated use of higher amounts may lead to panic attacks or full-blown psychosis. Snorting may cause nosebleeds, issues with swallowing other foods and liquids, and/or chronically inflamed nose and sinuses, also known as “coke bloat” or “coke nose.”

Smoking crack cocaine causes lung damage, including a heightened risk for pneumonia and other lung infections. The injection has been noted to trigger allergic reactions in some people, usually to the cocaine itself or a substance it was cut with. These reactions have been linked to fatal outcomes in severe cases.[4]

Cocaine use over a long time period is also linked to neurological issues, including bleeding within the brain — intracerebral hemorrhage — and Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. Long-term consumption isn’t worth the risk, treatment can help.

AN OVERVIEW OF COCAINE DRUG FACTS

Cocaine is produced when a purified chemical — cocaine hydrochloride — is separated from cocoa leaves. When dried, the chemical becomes the recognizable white powder form; it’s generally snorted but can be smoked (freebase) or dissolved in water and injected intravenously.

Because it is an addictive stimulant and has a high potential for misuse, cocaine is a Schedule II drug in the U.S. today. When used under illicit means, it’s often cut or diluted with other substances to extend its illegal distribution.

Baking soda, cornstarch, flour, and talcum powder are often cut in, while some manufacturers use fentanyl or heroin. Unfortunately, you or your loved one cannot know what’s in this type of cocaine, heightening the risk of adverse side effects and even overdose.

Common street names for cocaine include Blow, Bump, Coke, Nose Candy, Rail, Snow, or Toot.

Cocaine Vs. Crack Cocaine: What’s The Difference?

Although the names are often used interchangeably, cocaine and crack cocaine feature noticeable differences, from appearance to the length of effects one experiences.

  • Appearance: Cocaine is often in its white powder form, while crack cocaine is small chunks or rocks that are cream, light brown, tan, or whitish in color.
  • Method of use: The powder can be snorted, smoked, or injected, but crack is only smoked.
  • Rapidity of the effects: The high associated with crack cocaine happens rapidly due to the smoke inhalation and absorption by the surface of the lungs for rapid distribution into the bloodstream. It takes a few minutes longer to feel the effects of snorting the powder, but the associated high lasts longer.
  • How long the effects last: The effects of snorted cocaine begin in 1 to 5 minutes, peaking within 30 minutes, then subside within 2 hours. You may feel the effects of crack cocaine in less than a minute, peak within 5 minutes, then subsides within 1 hour.

Cocaine Withdrawal Timeline

The duration and intensity of your cocaine withdrawal symptoms will depend on a handful of factors, including the type of cocaine used and how long it has gone on. If you regularly use crack, it’s known to trigger withdrawal symptoms within a matter of hours after your last use and, in some cases, can ignite dependence after only a single use.

Cocaine withdrawal can be categorized into three phases — crash, withdrawal, and extinction. During the crash, your symptoms may mimic the flu for up to three days. The withdrawal phase varies from person to person and may last up to a month. Extinction may last up to another month or longer for those with a severe cocaine use disorder.

  • Motivational Interviewing: Generating a change in your actions and jumpstarting core values is the crux of motivational interviewing.
    Trauma-Informed Treatment: If a cocaine use disorder stems from past or present trauma, this therapy allows for safely processing experiences.
  • Group Therapy: Share your experiences and learn from a group of peers in the same situation while practicing skills needed after treatment.
  • Family Therapy: Openly and safely share the experience of your loved one and learn how to support them. Heal stronger together by learning and practicing practical communication and interpersonal skills.
