What Type of Side Effects Does Cocaine Produce?

Whether a person is smoking crack cocaine, injecting the drug, or snorting it, there are many different side effects. The side effects caused by using cocaine include:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Paranoia
  • Vertigo
  • Tremors
  • Loss of appetite
  • Decreased sexual function

Cocaine is a dangerous drug and is highly addictive; crack cocaine has been known to cause an instant addiction because of the intense euphoric high it produces. Crack cocaine addicts will tend to romance after the drug and continually chase that same feeling. Cocaine will also cause an overdose, which can lead to cardiac arrest, stroke, sudden death, and respiratory arrest. Because cocaine is such a popular polydrug, there is also an increased risk with an overdose because cocaine is used in combination with other substances. There are short-term and long-term consequences associated with the use of cocaine, and unfortunately, most cocaine users will ignore these problems because of how the drug makes them feel. The method of how cocaine is used will also alter the immediate side effects and will also lead to different long-term side effects.
