Methamphetamine Side Effects

Other Possible Side Effects

Methamphetamine has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects seen with a group of people taking the drug were documented and compared to another group not taking it. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.

Methamphetamine can also cause a temporary slowing of growth in children. This is usually minor, and children usually catch up to a normal growth rate with time.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects of methamphetamine listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects during treatment or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a methamphetamine side effect, your healthcare provider should be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
