Been using methamphetamine. Why does it lead to body odor? What can help?

Yes, perhaps you can. I have been using methamphetamine for thirty years. Most recently, I have been using sporadically. Over the last year, whenever I use I omit an offensive body odor than has emptied buses, taxis and offices, Other than not using (which I have tried multiple times withour success), is there any way that I can rid myself of that offensive body odor and still use?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. As it it is there is no documented side effect of emiting a bad odour. It could be due to interaction with the diet you take during the period of taking methamphitamine.
There is a side effect of hallucination , by olfactory hallucination you may feel there is some smell coming out of your body,This you can confirrm by asking whether they are getting the smell when you are feeling the smell.
First of all you confirm whether you are using it by prescription, or as an o.t.c.product,I advise you to consult a physician for veining off the drug, he will give you some substitute while slowly withdrawing the drug.
Wishing for a quick remedy of the problem and thanks for calling.
