Common Signs of Crystal Meth Use
- Bloodshot eyes, dilated pupils, constant sniffing, itching and injection (track) marks.
- Constant visits at random times of the day or night for short bursts of time (and may mean that there is a buy/sell occurring), as well leaving the house or work place at irregular times.
- Change in sleeping patterns especially staying awake until the early hours of the morning, unable to wake up early, sleeping during the middle of the day or not sleeping much at all.
- Skin picking. Methamphetamine addicts are known to obsessively pick at their skin. The marks left by this picking may look similar to an extreme case of acne, often leaving open sores on the face mood swings.
- Drug paraphernalia (pipes, needles)
- Tooth decay: Another common sign is tooth loss or tooth decay, referred to as meth mouth.
