The drug constricts blood vessels which causes increased blood pressure. While intranasal ‘snorting’ administration of the drug can cause serious damage to the nasal cavity and spetum.
The recreational high of the drug is relatively short, lasting roughly 30 minutes. The effects during smaller doses relate to feelings of euphoria, sociability, concentration, and a decreased need for sleep.
During large dose administration, the user could experience violent behavior, nosebleeds, heart attacks, strokes, and possible death.
