Flakka, alternately known as alpha-PVP, is chemically similar to synthetic drugs known as cathinones, which are more popularly known as bath salts. Flakka takes the form of a white or pink crystal, which is ingested, snorted, injected, or vaporized by e-cigarettes. The drug found popularity in Florida, but its use is spreading throughout the country.

Symptoms and Side Effects of Flakka Abuse

Flakka offers many of the same effects as bath salts, namely a state of excited delirium that mixes paranoia, hyperstimulation of the senses, and hallucinations. Other side effects include:

  • Intense euphoria
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Increased alertness

  • Aggressive behavior
  • Fatigue
  • Depression

Complications of Flakka Use

Flakka is a highly addictive, highly potent substance. Addiction can lead to reckless behavior, which can potentially hurt you and cause you to say hurtful things to those you love. Addiction takes complete control of your life, preventing you from enjoying what you used to love.

  • Breakdown of muscle tissue

  • Self-injury
  • Increased body temperature
  • Kidney damage
  • Kidney failure
