Managing Mental Health Impacts of Tina

Mood and Anxiety

Depression is one of the most common long-term consequences of using Tina. If you already suffer from Depression, the risk is higher. Long-term use will exacerbate pre-existing Depression symptoms, and can make it harder to treat. If you don’t already have Depression, you can develop it through long-term Tina use. Suicide is a real risk for long-term users.

Methamphetamine Psychosis

When Tina is used regularly over a long period of time Methamphetamine Psychosis can develop. This is a state very similar to paranoid schizophrenia, and symptoms include:  hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and impulsive, aggressive, and even violent behaviour. Methamphetamine Psychosis is usually a temporary condition, most often happening during heavy use periods (binging).

Research shows that long-term Tina use can lead to longer-lasting and sometimes permanent brain damage, negatively impacting memory, thinking and movement.
