  • Mephedrone can make users feel sick, paranoid and anxious, and it can cause vomiting and headaches.
  • It risks over stimulating and damaging your heart and your circulation.
  • It also risks over stimulating your nervous system, which may cause hallucinations, feelings of agitation and even fits.
  • It can reduce your appetite, so you don’t feel hungry.

Other effects that people have reported include heart palpitations, insomnia, loss of short-term memory, vertigo (a form of dizziness), grinding of teeth, sweating and uncomfortable changes in body temperature.
