Amphetamine's physical effects can reduce appetite, distort/heighten sensation, induce hyperactivity, dilated pupils, increase blood pressure and a variety of other effects.  Younger people are at a higher risk of suffering a heart attack.

Psychological effects include anxiety, nervousness, creative thinking, euphoria, increase energy, repetitive behaviour, talkativeness, aggression, paranoia.

A build up of tolerance is attained rapidly which leads to a need to consume ever larger quantities of the drug.  Withdrawal after extensive recreational use of amphetamines may include depression, anxiety, fatigue, long period of sleep, suicidal thoughts and psychosis.

Since 1960, amphetamine has been used by many of the UK's youth cultures starting with the mods and later by the skinheads, goths, punks and later the acid house and rave scene where it was valued for its ability to enable the user to dance for long periods with lots of energy..

Amphetamine is a Class B drug in the UK with a unauthorised possession penalty of up to 5 years in prison or 14 years for possession with intent to supply.
