What happens to a person when they take ice?
Methamphetamine increases the level of substances such as dopamine, adrenaline and serotonin in the brain and body. The rush of dopamine and serotonin gives a user an intense feeling of pleasure and well-being, while adrenaline activates the body's 'fight-or-flight' reaction, making the user more active, alert and aggressive. The effect of ice normally lasts between 8 and 24 hours.
