Definition and Description

Phencyclidine, better known as PCP was originally used as a surgical anesthetic in the 1950s. Discontinued in the 1960s, it caused patients to become agitated, irrational, and delusional when recovering from the anesthetic. Today, people abuse PCP due to the trance-like and detached, out-of-body state it gives its user.

Why is Phencyclidine taken?

It has mind-altering and hallucinogenic effects. It creates a feeling of detachment and an almost “out of body” sensation. PCP is addictive and can easily lead to dependence.

Dangers and side effects

Side effects of PCP include: Poor, garbled speech, flicking of the eyes, blurred vision, sweating, drooling, shallow and quick breathing, loss of balance, numbness, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. PCP effects mood and behavior, and in high doses can cause symptoms of schizophrenia including: paranoia, delusions, detachment from one’s environment and sometimes a catatonic state or amnesia. PCP can cause dangerous, erratic, violent and suicidal behavior.

PCP is most dangerous because it causes hallucinations. Use of the drug can lead to seizures and coma. Deaths from PCP are often from the incontrollable mental and physical instabilities of the drug rather than the drug itself, and deaths are often suicides or due to accidental injury.

Long term use of PCP causes memory loss, weight loss, depression and interferes permanently with speech and thinking.
