Hello,

Methamphetamine often cuts off circulation. This is bad and can cause loss of limbs if there is no circulation. Also, it is associated with increased blood pressure which is also dangerous.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Matt Wachsman
