Responding to Psychological Concerns

If you are confident that the problem is not medical in nature (seizure, stroke, heart attack, overheating), but you or your friend is experiencing anxiety or other psychological symptoms of overamping there are things you can do as well:

  • Drink water or a sports drink, eat some food
  • Try to sleep
  • Switch how you’re doing your speed or coke, sometimes if you’re shooting, switching to smoking can help
  • Change your environment or the people you’re with
  • Take a benzo (small dose, like an Ativan)
  • Breathing or meditation exercises
  • Physical contact, like massaging yourself or having someone else do it for you
  • Walking, walking, walking—walk it off!
  • Take a warm shower
  • Get some fresh air
