    People who use high doses of amphetamines extensively can experience paranoia and hallucination (psychosis). Dopamine is a substance that occurs naturally to transmit impulses from one nerve to another. Injections of dopamine antagonists, such as chlorpromazine, haloperidol and thioridazine, can block this transmission. The review of trials found that an injection of one of these anti-psychotic drugs can help relieve the symptoms of amphetamine psychosis within an hour, but there is not enough evidence to show what can help after that. More research is needed.

    Time to change my sig.
