Immediately after taking nitrous, a user may fall down as his or her motor skills become impaired. A burst of happy stimulation will often be followed by disorientation, sleepiness, or nausea. The effects of whippits don't usually last more than a few minutes, which is why some people inhale several balloons over a short span of time. In the short term, nitrous may cause death by asphyxiation, particularly when inhaled through a mask. Whippits can also lead to immediate lung damage, or frostbite. With chronic use, nitrous oxide may also cause neuropathy, a condition in which nerve fibers are permanently damaged, resulting in weakness, tingling, and numbness. Despite these risks, nitrous is rarely addictive. If you chose to use nitrous oxide recreationally, recognize that you're breaking the law, and that if you are not careful, that you might hurt yourself.More »

Taken in moderation, DXM could help ease a persistent cough. But what happens when you take too much? Find out in this video.

When it's used as directed, DXM is taken in 15 to 30 milligram doses to help ease coughing. However, when consumed in doses of 100 milligrams or more, the drug begins to generate mild hallucinations and feelings of exhilaration and disassociation. Recreational users often prefer to take many "skittle" pills at once, although syrup containing DXM is also an option. The DXM high usually takes about fifteen minutes to kick in, and can last for several hours. But aside from the desired euphoria, the drug may also cause blurry vision, impaired judgment, severe dizziness, and paranoia. If an overdose occurs, vomiting, unconsciousness, a dangerously high heart rate, and seizures may result. Given these potentially sever side effects, it's possible to die from a large overdose of DXM cough medication.Dextromethorphan generally does not produce withdrawal symptoms characteristic of physically addictive substances, but there have been cases of psychological addiction, and not much is known about the long-term effects of abuse.More »

The most common inhalants include spray paint, correction fluid, nail polish, cleaning fluids, rubber glue, paint thinner, and aerosolized computer cleaner. These products can be inhaled directly from the container, or poured onto a rag or roll of toilet paper and "huffed." Fumes from these household inhalants can also be breathed in through a plastic bag, also referred to as "bagging." Regardless of the delivery method, euphoria and dissociative intoxication effects occur within seconds of inhaling. On the downside, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, confusion, and shortness of breath are also common inhalation side effects. Despite the negative effects, simple household agents are extremely addictive, resulting in withdrawal symptoms after as few as several uses. Even one attempt at huffing can produce fatal cardiac arrhythmia, a condition more commonly known as "sudden sniffing death syndrome." With long-term abuse, these agents can result in permanent brain damage, muscle weakness, and fatal liver damage.More »

In large doses, PCP can cause, image distortion, and severe, often violent, mood changes, and feelings of superhuman strength. Users may become anxious and worry about impending doom, or they may experience episodes indistinguishable from paranoid schizophrenia. These mental changes, as well as the physical effects-like difficulty walking, slurred speech, and numbness-will usually last about two hours. PCP is highly addictive. It's also known to cause suicidal tendencies, violent rages and to induce potentially deadly comas. In fact, many drug experts consider PCP to be one of the most dangerous drugs in existence, and caution strongly against ever trying it.More »

DMT creates an almost immediate sense of euphoria, a feeling of sheer relaxation, and peaceful hallucinations. DMT is best known for inducing very intense, if short-lasting visual hallucinations, often described as colorful 'stained glass window, circular chrysanthemum-like. And unlike LSD and other psychedelics, DMT visuals tend to take up your ENTIRE visual field and are truly generated internally-meaning it's not like watching a wall and seeing it ripple on LSD or seeing trails caused by objects in the edges of your visual field. On the negative side, DMT can lead to a rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, and severe paranoia. If DMT is smoked, any of these effects are brief, lasting no more than five to thirty minutes. In other forms, the DMT high is still short, and usually ends within an hour. Because it can be rapidly enjoyed-like on a lunch break-it's also known as the "businessman's high." Not much is known about the long-term effects of DMT, but the drug is still illegal without religious reason. As such, use DMT at your own risk.More »

Abusing steroids can lead to a host of negative side effects. On the emotional side, the drugs can cause hostility, aggression, and impaired judgment. Physically, short-term abuse can lead to acne, premature hair loss, and-of course-increased muscle mass. And long term abuse leads to even more serious consequences, like damage to the reproductive organs, often manifesting as decreased testicle size in men, decreased breasts in women, and possible infertility in both sexes. Plus, steroid users have a significantly higher risk of developing high blood pressure, kidney cancer, and stroke-causing blood clots. There's obviously a reason that steroids are illegal without a doctor's prescription, so be like 99% of your peers and pass on them.More »

Viagra is usually consumed orally and works by blocking an enzyme in the body called PDE-5. When that happens, blood flow increases to the areas where PDE-5 is most concentrated-namely the penis. This makes it possible for a man to get and maintain a stronger erection, often for long periods of time. For men, arousal almost always leads to desire. So by improving a man's ability to have erections, Viagra measurably affects his sexual function.More »

When you smoke marijuana, you'll feel mellow, relaxed, and generally happy. You may feel very hungry, a phenomenon known as the "munchies." But as your high continues, you might experience paranoia or confusion. You'll notice an increased heart rate and a loss of coordination. Excessive marijuana use can cause the same problems as tobacco smoking, such as bronchitis and emphysema. Despite its illegal status, marijuana is approved for controlled medicinal uses in several of the U.S. states.More »

When you pop a tablet of X, you'll feel euphoric, energized, and sexually aroused. That's because your brain produces a cocktail of "happy" neurotransmitters in response to the drug. You may garner great pleasure from touching things, and feel extreme empathy with others. But ecstasy constricts blood vessels, so you may overheat or become dehydrated while using it. Other physical side effects include stomach cramps and blurred vision. You may also experience paranoia or confusion. As you come down from a high, you'll likely feel lethargic and depressed. Excessive use may damage brain cells, resulting in long-term problems concentrating or remembering.More »

A high from snorting may take about ten minutes to kick in, and last fifteen minutes to half an hour. As you "crash" from a high, you'll feel incredibly depressed and desirous of more coke to "fix" the feeling-which is why coke is so addictive. Coming down from cocaine may also leave you fatigued, agitated, and irritable. Long term use of coke is associated with many problems, from nosebleeds and nightmares to seizures and even cardiac arrest.More »

The fungi, which are officially known as psilocybin, grow naturally. Mushrooms are generally dried and eaten, but because of their unpleasant taste, are often mixed with other foods. After you eat magic mushrooms, you will usually experience hallucinations. Generally, the effects on your senses will be the most intense part of your trip. You may feel that surfaces shimmer or that you can "see" sounds. On occasion, people who eat mushrooms have a "bad trip," during which they experience unpleasant revelations or feelings of woe. These are not as severe as bad LSD trips, however. Physically, the drug can cause appetite loss, feelings of coldness, nausea, and numbing or weakness in the limbs and face.More »
