COCAINE – Coke, namak (salt in Hindi), coca, flake, snow, heaven dust, crack

Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant derived from the leaves of the coca plant. It is the most popular party drug in India today. Usually a white crystalline powder. Crack, a cheaper form of cocaine. Cocaine abusers typically develop a tolerance to the drug, and take in higher doses to maintain the same high.

Cocaine is either snorted or dissolved in a liquid and then injected. Some also mix cocaine with cannabis and tobacco and smoke it.

Effects- Cocaine increases alertness, feelings of well-being and euphoria, energy and motor activity, feelings of competence and sexuality.

After effects Anxiety, paranoia and restlessness can also occur, especially during the comedown. With excessive dosage, tremors, convulsions and increased body temperature are observed.Severe cardiac adverse events, particularly sudden cardiac death, become a serious risk at high doses due to cocaine’s blocking effect on cardiac sodium channels.

Addiction can result in severe paranoea The recovery of the brain from damage caused by cocaine can take over a minimum of two years.

Combining cocaine with alcohol can be fatal as was seen in the famous case of the death of the secretary of Rahul Mahajan as respiratory shut down can happen. I had a client who would run on a treadmill on a speed of 20 after being high on cocaine- a potential cardiac arrest in waiting.

 

HEROIN  Smack, horse, junk, H, Skag

Derivative of morphine, an extract from the poppy plant. In its purest form, it is a white powder but can also be brown in colour because of the presence of impurities  often mixed with talcum powder, starch, sugar, powdered milk, or quinine. As the drug is adulterated, it is difficult to determine the actual dose of heroin, which can be fatal.

After just few hours or days of the last administration, withdrawal symptoms such as intense craving for the drug, restlessness, pain, sleeplessness, vomiting, and kicking can be seen in the average heroin abuser.

A  tin foil containing heroin powder is heated underneath. This results in the solid powder turning into a liquid. Users either inhale the fumes or inject the liquid. Heroin is also smoked.
