Aspirin overdose - a case history
Cocaine intoxication refers to the subjective and objective, desired and adverse, effects of cocaine on the body of users. Both self-induced and involuntary cocaine intoxication have medical and legal implications even in absence of relevant adverse effects. Adverse effects can develop over time due to repeated use and so become chronic conditions. However, even a one-time intake of the substance can result in severe acute intoxication. Recurrent cocaine use and dependence to the drug inevitably leads to the reduction of the desired effects perceived by the users, while the occurrence of adverse effects of intoxication increase. The last can sometimes be completely reversed without bearing consequences but they can also potentially kill the users e. Cocaine increases alertness, feelings of well-being, euphoria, energy, sociability, and sexuality.
