Hello. I'm Dr. Christensen.
As you know, methamphetamine is a stimulant: it triggers the release of chemicals (neurotransmitters) in your brain that give you the euphoria ("high") that makes this drug so addictive. Unfortunately, a methamphetamine high is quickly followed by a "downer" or "comedown" that can last several days. This downer is caused by depletion of neurotransmitters that your brain needs to function normally, and it is an inevitable consequence of methamphetamine use.
The most effective way to avoid a downer is to avoid further methamphetamine use. In addition, you might consider supplementing with L-tyrosine (500 to 1,000 mg daily). L-tyrosine is an amino acid your brain needs to replenish depleted neurotransmitters.
If you find yourself craving methamphetamine and you feel you'll use it again, seek medical help.
I hope that answers your question. I'll be available if you have additional concerns.
Good luck!

My friend is 30, not overweight, and used crystal meth for the last 5 years. Now he's been off drugs for about 3 months and went to the VA for a physical and his blood pressure is 230/150. They told him to come back in a month or so. Should he be worried?
