How much meth does it take to overdose

Oct 15, 2013

How much method does it take to overdose?

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Thanks for writing. That's a rather chilling question because, in my opinion, any dose of meth is extremely dangerous. I know many people who feel they can control their intake and then quickly become powerless over the drug.

As to specifics, it varies based on your health and other drugs you are taking. You should know that certain ARVs, such as Norvir, can significantly increase the amount of meth circulating in your system to even more dangerous levels.

Best advice: steer clear of meth.

Take care,
