Physiology and Side Effects of Cocaine
Like many other addictive drugs, cocaine increases dopamine levels in the brain. Cocaine causes an excessive build-up of dopamine and other pleasure producing neurotransmitters and blocks the natural re-absorption process of these chemicals. The sudden increase in dopamine levels disrupts normal brain communications and causes the user to feel the effects of a cocaine “high.” According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, research shows that cocaine abuse is related to a disruption of higher thought and decision-making functions. These effects take place even when cocaine is used infrequently, or in small amounts. When the decision-making functions are disrupted; risk for exposure to diseases such as HIV is increased, even if the drug is only being snorted.
After repeated use of cocaine, addiction can occur, after just a few uses. A tolerance to cocaine is quickly developed as the high does not last long. Cocaine can quickly turn you or your loved one into someone you no longer recognize.
