What are the symptoms of a coke comedown?
My friend and I experimented with cocaine tonight for the first time. We had a great time, but now feel like we’re coming down with flu. Is this normal? What can we do to ease the symptoms?
It sounds like you have experienced the not-so-fun side of Cocaine. The side effects can be similar to the symptoms of flu: feeling run down, runny nose, aches, pains, headache, fuzzy head, etc. It sounds like you and your friend are experiencing the classic symptoms.
You’ve got these symptoms because cocaine is a stimulant and it works your body really hard. You probably noticed that you felt full of energy, alert and confident after taking the cocaine. This was because it sped up the way your body was working, increasing your heart rate, blood flow, activity of the brain. It would make sense that your body needs to recover from all this extra work.
The best thing that you can do to ease these symptoms is to treat it like the flu — get lots of rest, drink plenty of water, eat healthy, nutritious food and most importantly avoid taking any more cocaine. Some people will take more cocaine to help them through the come down. This is a really bad idea because it leads to a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, working your body even harder, increasing the risk of heart attack or overdose and can lead to addiction.
