Psicoestimulantes (drogas inteligentes)

Muchas personas luchan con la presión de salir adelante en su profesión. Los psicoestimulantes PED (drogas inteligentes) pueden parecer a veces un medio para trabajar más y adelantarse. Sin embargo, los riesgos superan a los beneficios.

Un psicoestimulante es cualquier tipo de sustancia psicotrópica que estimula nuestro sistema nervioso central (SNC). Los estimulantes funcionan aumentando la actividad de ciertos neurotransmisores en el cerebro, como la dopamina. Como resultado, nos sentimos más concentrados, enérgicos, atentos y confiados.

Los medicamentos psicoestimulantes más comunes son:

Medicamentos con receta

  • Sales de anfetamina (Benzedrina, Adderall, Vyvanse)
  • Metilfenidatos (Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, Focalin)
  • Modafinilo (Provigil, Sparlon)

Sustancias ilegales

  • Cocaína
  • Metanfetamina
  • Éxtasis
    • Psicoestimulantes legales

      • Café
      • Tabaco
      • Creatina
      • Todas estas drogas pueden ser objeto de abuso para mejorar el rendimiento.para mejorar el rendimiento y cada una de ellas es altamente adictiva.

¿Cómo funcionan las drogas inteligentes?

Los PED cognitivos aumentan la acción de la dopamina. Este es un neurotransmisor implicado en el placer y la capacidad de atención. Los estimulantes del SNC esencialmente bloquean la reabsorción de la dopamina por parte de nuestro cerebro, lo que nos permite experimentar una cantidad excesiva.

Los medicamentos recetados del SNC se utilizan a menudo para tratar el trastorno por déficit de atención e hiperactividad (TDAH) y la narcolepsia. Esto se debe a que si alguien sufre una afección como el TDAH, le falta dopamina. Al bloquear la reabsorción del cerebro, los estimulantes del SNC ayudan a reequilibrar su química cerebral. Pero si alguien abusa de estos fármacos por razones no médicas, hacen exactamente lo contrario. El exceso de dopamina conducirá a una química cerebral desequilibrada, y eso conlleva riesgos.

Los efectos secundarios físicos incluyen:

  • Convulsiones
  • Dolor en el pecho
  • Mareos
  • Aumento de la presión arterial
  • Paro cardíaco (sobredosis)
  • Taquicardia (frecuencia cardíaca rápida)
  • Dolor abdominal
  • Deshidratación
  • Dolores de cabeza
  • Fatiga

Los efectos secundarios psicológicos incluyen:

  • Depersonalización
  • Aumento de la ansiedad
  • Depresión
  • Manía
  • Comportamiento de riesgo
  • Aumento de la agresividad
  • Paranoia
  • Alucinaciones
  • Psicosis
  • Adicción
    • ¿Por qué los psicoestimulantes son tan adictivos?

      Cualquier sustancia (o conducta) que libere cantidades excesivas de dopamina en nuestro cerebro es adictiva. Si no tenemos ninguna razón médica para consumir medicamentos estimulantes, estos fármacos aumentarán drásticamente la cantidad de dopamina en circulación dentro del cerebro.

      El aumento de la actividad de estos neurotransmisores induce una sensación de euforia, que motiva el consumo continuado. Sin embargo, estos subidones van seguidos de largos periodos de depresión, irritabilidad y agitación. Este ciclo de subidas y bajadas prepara el terreno para la adicción y los problemas de salud mental.

Los signos de dependencia incluyen:

Si se le ha recetado, exceder la dosis recomendada.

  • Mentir a los médicos o exagerar los síntomas para obtener más cantidad de la medicación.
  • Continuar consumiendo la sustancia a pesar de querer dejarla.
  • Necesitar más y más de un estimulante para obtener el efecto deseado (tolerancia).
  • Experimentar antojos o síntomas físicos cuando no se consume (abstinencia)
    • Si muestra alguno de estos signos, podría estar desarrollando una dependencia. Si sigue abusando de estas sustancias, podría dañar su salud, su carrera y sus relaciones. Sin embargo, la adicción a los psicoestimulantes puede superarse eficazmente mediante la desintoxicación y la terapia intensiva.

Testimonials

I went to Paracelsus Recovery after a decade-long battle with anorexia. I had spent my twenties in and out of different rehabs and therapies and I was sceptical that my experience at Paracelsus would be any different. However, I couldn’t have been more wrong. The therapeutic team were so attuned to the specificities of my background, my eating disorder, and how the two intertwined. I am so grateful for the support and compassion I received during my time there.

Dasha, 31-year-old socialite from Moscow, Russia

I spent a month at Paracelsus after my OCD accumulated in panic attacks. The therapists helped me develop new ways of coping with stress, which has changed my life for the better.

Francis, 40-year-old wealth manager from Hamburg, Germany.

Thank you Paracelsus (London), you saved my life and my marriage. Expensive but money well spent!

JM, 54-year old Businessman, London.

My stay from Paracelsus was very special. I was feeling depression and sick and very lonely. Never was I in a rehab center. It was first scary but in final it was the best decision. The team was unique and help a lot. All was professional and understand my problems. A big merci for the live-in therapist with her support in special also in the night she help me when I not felt so well and we talked a lot. Also merci for the doctors and nurse to help with my pain. I think still at my treatment there. For sure I will come back for the future to say bonjour and to some more tests and check-ups.

JP, 37 year old male, Paris.

What I appreciated the most about Paracelsus Recovery was their attention to detail. My stressful lifestyle had led to a combination of cocaine abuse and heavy drinking. I couldn’t figure out how I had ended up there, and I was deeply ashamed. The team at Paracelsus Recovery helped me realise that my substance abuse was due to how lonely and depressed I felt. They provided empathic and holistic treatment which enabled me to re-connect with myself, my health and my family.

Sarah, 42-year-old senior executive from Nice, France.

My parents “sent” me to Zurich when I was nineteen because my partying had become unsustainable. The amazing team at Paracelsus Recovery opened my eyes and made me see why I had been treating myself so badly. I cannot tell you the relief I felt when I finally understood why I had been putting myself in such risky situations. They explained in detail how addiction affected my brain, and they helped me process some traumatic experiences from my childhood.

Mateo, 22-year-old from Barcelona, Spain.

After years of doctors in the UK being unable to find the cause of various symptoms, I went to Paracelsus to complete their health assessment programme. They figured out why I had these symptoms and provided the most in-depth assessment and recommendations I had ever received. I would highly recommend this three-day programme for anyone who wants to take back control over their health.

James, 45-year-old investment banker from London, UK.

I had no idea my acute anxiety was affecting me and my family so much. I was so stressed and anxious it was impacting on every part of my life. At Paracelsus, I learnt so many coping strategies to manage my anxiety and depression and can now recognise the warning signs and know how to cope.

BM, 57 years old wife and mother, Surrey, UK.

I underwent the executive detox programme at Paracelsus Recovery because I had been using substances excessively, and I needed to be focused and healthy for upcoming work projects. I found the treatment centre to be very comfortable. The biochemical restoration really helped with the withdrawal and the ‘psychoeducation’ was useful. I also really appreciated their non-judgemental and pragmatic approach.

Luca, 37-year-old business owner from Zurich, Switzerland.

I came to Paracelsus with my drinking gone out of control. I have been drinking for years but never admitted to myself that I had a problem. My wife and sons encouraged me to go to Paracelsus. The best decision I have ever made. My life had become one big lie to cover up my addiction - all my energy was absorbed by my problem. After six weeks with Paracelsus Recovery, I have regained control of my life and focus again on what is most important - my family.

Basri, a 56-year-old business owner from Istanbul, Turkey.

My life has changed since I was in Zurich with Paracelsus. Previous attempts to fight my cocaine addiction in the US only worked temporarily. Paracelsus Recovery’s approach with extensive psychotherapy gave me the ‘tools’ I needed when I returned home to my demanding job. The program also helped me to get fitter and lose weight, a nice bonus.

Ronda, a senior business executive from New York, USA.

I came to Paracelsus because I needed a discrete and private treatment for my addiction to prescription medication. The decision followed many years in a downward-spiral and my personality changing negatively due to my medication abuse, and after unsuccessfully trying to reduce the medication by myself. The intensive four-week treatment at Paracelsus has helped me to get off the medication that has controlled my life for such a long time. I am grateful for this place, as I could not go to any other addiction treatment facility for confidentiality reasons.

Coming to Paracelsus was the most important decision in my life.

MF, a woman from the Middle East.

The time spent at Paracelsus Recovery is hard to overestimate. Some of the clinic's specialists speak Russian, but all treatment sessions work wonderfully through an interpreter. The treatment plan is very intense and sometimes tiring, but takes place in a comfortable and safe environment.

Lili Paukova

I am the son of a wealthy family. Unfortunately, in my business endeavours, I had found myself in a rock and a hard place. Fortunately, as I cannot go into much details regarding my difficulties, Paracelsus was there to help. If you have the resources required, I highly recommend their services. Their understanding of addiction, and the in-depth treatment they provide, which is virtually everything you would need to overcome any difficulty, I am beyond satisfied, refreshed, and feeling anew.

Dr. Charls Epstein

Paracelsus Recovery is difficult to describe ... luxury on a 5-star level, but even more important: a team with a heart and a lot of knowledge. I have never felt understood or learned to be understood so well myself. This was my third stay in the clinic and I am confident that it will be the last.

Marc Streuli

Paracelsus Recovery is amazing. I have been to several "high-end" rehabs, but Paracelsus is another world. I was somewhat sceptical at first; treatment is very expensive and there is a big emphasis on their five star service level and luxury residences. But then I found their program for treating addictions being the probably most advanced and comprehensive in the world, so I decided to give it a shot. And did they deliver. The team is so kind and compassionate and they really seem to know their stuff. One does feel that one is the only client and that the place is owned and run by a family, not an institution.

Sarah Milton

I have recommended several patients to this clinic and have only heard great feedback about their services and the quality of their medical program.
