Mephedrone ‘Meow Meow’ Addiction

Mephedrone, commonly called meph or ‘meow meow’ was formerly considered a ‘legal high’ but is now classified as a highly-addictive, Class B drug.

Related to amphetamines as a treatment for depression, mephedrone is a synthetic stimulant, which has increasingly become associated as the clubbers ‘drug of choice’ because of the similar affects to cocaine and ecstasy.

Mephedrone can come in the form of white powder, capsules, tablets that users may snort, swallow, smoke or inject.

Intended stimulant effects

Users take Mephedrone to obtain an enhanced response to music, a sense of euphoria, elevated mood and confidence, improved mental function (alert and talkative) and mild sexual stimulation.

The experience can last for differing lengths of time according to how the drug was taken. If directly snorted, the effects are felt within minutes and peak within half an hour. When taken in tablet form, between 15–45 minutes. Whether taken orally or snorted, the effects generally last for between two and three hours, but only for half an hour if injected.

Symptoms and Warning Signs

The presence of mephedrone may be detected due to possessing a strong smell resembling cat urine.

Side effects
Mephedrone can cause various unintended side effects, including:
  • Excessive sweating
  • Dilated pupils
  • Teeth grinding
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Nose bleeds and nose burns
  • Poor concentration
  • Headaches
  • Nausea

Users may also find their fingers turning blue or cold, as the heart becomes over-stimulated, affecting circulation and causing changes in body temperature.

Long-term Effects

A compulsion to use and a psychological dependence starts to develop leading to the need for higher doses or prolonged usage. Heavy users may start to feel:
  • Anxious
  • Aggressive
  • Paranoid

Longer term problems affecting addicted users:
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty in visually focusing
  • Poor short-term memory
  • Hallucinations, delusions
  • Erratic behaviour

Serious mental health problems may start to appear, including the inability to talk and a misunderstanding of what other people say.
