We describe five patients with complications following amphetamine overdose. Two of the patients died: one with disseminated intravascular coagulation and circulatory collapse, one with severe rhabdomyolysis and ischemic colitis. Among the other three cases, one developed acute psychosis, hyperthermia and rhabdomyolysis, one developed acute respiratory distress syndrome and one pericarditis. The effects of amphetamine are discussed along with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with such poisoning.
For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, the Amphetamines.com helpline is a private and convenient solution.
Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by American Addiction Centers (AAC).
We are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options. Our representatives work solely for AAC and will discuss whether an AAC facility may be an option for you. Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Amphetamines.com nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose.
