What Category is Cocaine in? (Depressant, stimulant, hallucinogen)
Immediate effects of Cocaine begin within a few minutes to a couple of hours, depending on how the cocaine is taken. The user will begin to lose control of their body and actions, often feeling a false sense of confidence, happiness, alertness and excitement. When the immediate ‘rush’ of the cocaine has worn off the person may experience a ‘crash’, in which they lose all of their previous energy.
