Effects on users?
Captagon pills are highly addictive amphetamine. It works by stimulating the central nervous system, increasing alertness and concentration, and allowing users to stay awake.
It has been compared with drugs such as Adderall, another amphetamine used to treat ADHD in children. The effects are generally mild. Users report feeling mild euphoria, as well as being talkative and more energetic.
Long-term amphetamine use leads to a range of side effects including confusion, hallucinations, nausea, vomiting, seizures, high blood pressure, and heart palpitations.
Other side effects by regular users include blurred vision, vertigo, breathing difficulties, heart palpitations, gastrointestinal symptoms, muscle and joint pain, mood swings, confusion, feelings of anger, and irritability.
When users try to quit taking Captagon pills, they often encounter strong withdrawal symptoms, including fatigue, that cause them to seek out the drug again.
Treatment for Captagon addiction usually includes psychotherapy, as well as exercise and diet programs.
