Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Meth has severe side effects on the body. It can have major effects like causing heart damage, hypertension, tearing of the big artery in your chest called the aorta as well. Also local infection at the site of the injection will make you high risk for infection of your heart and severe disease. Kindly address the need to avoid this drug and seek help from a reputed Rehabilitation centre immediately.
