Treatment for amphetamine stimulant Support vital functions, providing symptomatic therapy, acidifying urge will increase excretion, adrenergic blockers, vasodilators to control excessive sympathetic and cardiovascular stimulation, sedative (Diazepam)
Designer drug- amphetamines stimulant These drugs are a mixture of LSD and amphetamines, methleredioxyamphetamine MDA love drug, Methamphine MDMA ectasy
COCAINE stimulant consumption- effect=amphetamines Orally, intranasal, intravenously
COCAINE stimulant time Wears off in 20-30 minutes which means you must take the drug more often which leads to drug dependency.
cocaine treatment Sedative(diazepam), vasodilators to control excessive sympathetic and cardiovascular stimulant, adrenergic blockers, acidifying urine will increase excretion, providing sympatomatic therapy, supporting vital functions.
Psychotomimetic (PCP) PHENCYCLIDINE 4-6hrs General anaesthetic for animals, was used on humans, had high incidence of emergence delirium
(PCP) PHENCYCLIDINE-psychotomimetic 4-6hr Taken inhalation, oral, insuffations, intravenously. /CNS stimulant, CNS depression, peripheal(outside the CNS), autonomical(heart), effectsanalgesia, anticonvulsant activity.
(PCP)PHENCYCLIDINE- psychotomimetic taken..4-6hr Taken in small amounts has the similar effects as amphetamines and larger amounts people become disoriented and speech is slurred reflexes, this state can last 4-6 hrs.

Alcohol causes 10-15mLper hr Causes people to feel stimulated and less self-conscious and flashed feeling, Absorbed through the entired GI tract goes all through the body but mostly to the CNS, Metabolized slowly in liver 10-15mL per hr
