Cocaine is a strong central nervous system stimulant that interferes with the re-absorption of dopamine. Cocaine gives a feeling of euphoria and energetic. The faster the absorption, the more intense the high. On the other hand, the faster the absorption, the shorter the duration of action. Most Common effects include heart attacks, respiratory failure, strokes, and seizures. Large amounts can cause bizarre and violent behavior. In rare cases, sudden death can occur on the first use of cocaine or unexpectedly thereafter. Having known these we advice you to counsel the addicted person regarding the effects and take him to an Addiction medicine specialist/ Counsellor who can assist him further.
