Drug Addiction Facts

  • When cocaine and alcohol are used together the human liver manufactures a third substance, cocaethylene, which intensifies cocaine's euphoric effects, while possibly increasing the risk of sudden death.
  • A codeine overdose can result in respiratory depression which in extreme cases can result in death.
  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
