Designer drugs are drugs produced by a minor modification in the chemical structure of an existing drug, resulting in a new substance with similar pharmacological effects. Here most of these recreational or party drugs are the modifications from amphetamine or methamphetamine. There are thousands of different tablets clandestinely prepared and sold throughout the world. They are not always pure, there may be poisonous combinations and there are also many fake tablets. In our lab we have analyzed many tablets which the parents found from their children and many had only starch and some binding material. You, your health, family and money are important for you and not the drugs. Say “No” to drugs always.


Amphetamine is a stimulant and an appetite suppressant. It stimulates central nervous system and brain by increasing certain neurotransmitters in the body.

Small doses of amphetamine wear off 3-8 hours later, leaving you fatigued but not exhausted.

This increases heart rate and blood pressure and decreases appetite.

The side effects include:

• Dizziness
• Blurred vision
• Restlessness
• It can hide the symptom of extreme tiredness

If you are under the influence of this drug avoid car driving, operating a machine or any other work where you need concentration.

Amphetamine is habit forming and can make you addicted to it. It makes physically and psychologically dependent.


Methamphetamine is a highly addictive stimulant. It causes numerous neurotransmitters released in the brain, producing euphoria which may last up to 12 hours.

As a popular stimulant, methamphetamine improves concentration, energy, alertness while decreasing appetite and fatigue.

Women tend to abuse it because it can cause extremely rapid weight loss. However the effects are short term. The body builds up a tolerance to methamphetamine and so after 6 weeks there will be no effect. The weight which is lost is regained when the person stops taking it. It is dangerous to use for weight reduction.

MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, Ecstasy)

MDMA is a psychoactive derivative of methamphetamine with psychedelic and stimulant effects. It is a designer drug and is used for recreational purposes.

Adverse side effects include:

Too much of alcohol and water intake can thin the blood and it is dangerous. At the same time if one doesn’t drink enough water his body is overheated and dehydrated and this also equally dangerous.

MDMA is used in private parties, raves or wherever people search recreation.

Related other designer or party drugs include:

MDA (Methylenedioxyamphetamine – It is known as love drug and is similar to MDMA. It is slightly more stimulating than MDMA but approximately twice as neurotoxic

Friends, family, society, religion, culture and our globalized world give us many possibilities to meet, communicate and enjoy life.

Say “No” to drugs always. Possessing and using these drugs are illegal and punishable in many countries.
