Negative Effects of Cocaine

Short Term

Cocaine causes a short-lived, intense high that is immediately followed by the opposite—intense depression, and a craving for more of the drug.

People who use it often don’t eat or sleep properly. They can experience greatly increased heart rate, muscle spasms and convulsions.

The drug can make people feel paranoid,1 angry, hostile and anxious—even when they aren’t high.

Long Term

A person can become psychotic and begin to experience hallucinations.

As cocaine interferes with the way the brain processes chemicals, one needs more and more of the drug just to feel “normal.”

People who become addicted to cocaine (as with most other drugs) lose interest in other areas of life.
