Because mephedrone is a relatively new arrival to the American drug scene, there is a lack of in-depth research on how addictive it is, as well as the full scale implications of it potential side effects.

A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is focusing on the drug mephedrone in its latest blog post.
As the blog post points out, mephedrone – sometimes referred to as “meow meow” “plant food”, “drone” and “bubbled” -- is a Schedule I stimulant, and therefore a controlled substance. The drug typically comes in capsule or powder form, and when consumed can lead to a variety of symptoms that typically last for an hour. These effects include, but are not limited to: euphoria, excitement, alertness, increased libido, and restlessness.
At the same time, individuals who abuse mephedrone may suffer from a range of adverse effects, including: excessive sweating, heart palpitations, headaches, nausea, blue/cold fingers, panic attacks, paranoia, hallucinations, vomiting, damage to the heart and circulatory system, insomnia, teeth grinding, short-term memory loss, nose bleeds, blood clots, ulcers, vein/artery damage and angrene.
“Because mephedrone is a relatively new arrival to the American drug scene, there is a lack of in-depth research on how addictive it is, as well as the full scale implications of it potential side effects,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, what we do know is that impatient treatment can be invaluable for individuals in search of a safe and caring environment within which to recovery, rebuild and restore their lives.”
Added Per Wickstrom: “What’s more, for many people, inpatient treatment is their only legitimate opportunity to truly overcome addiction.”
