Cocaine mainly affects the central nervous system in the brain and spinal cord. Ingestion is usually given in smaller doses of just a few grams. Although the doses are usually small, the effects are very noticeable. The feeling of hunger is blocked and blood pressure rises, which means that continuous use can lead to weight loss and heart problems. The intoxication lasts for about 30 minutes and the most common effects are euphoria and a feeling of invisibility, which often puts the user in situations that are stressful for the body. The bodily signs that an individual has taken cocaine are enlarged pupils, dry mouth, involuntary movements. For those who inject the drug, the risk of overdose, diseases and infections also increases. Those who have abused drugs for extended periods also suffer from increased restlessness, insomnia and paranoia.
