What is Phencyclidine?
Phencyclidine, commonly known as PCP or "angel dust," is used primarily as a recreational drug for its hallucinogenic effects. PCP is commonly taken orally, by inhalation, by insufflation, or intravenously, and is well absorbed following all routes of administration, concentrating fastest in fatty tissues and the brain. Unchanged PCP is excreted in the urine in moderate amounts (10% of the dose). The terminal half-life for PCP varies considerably, with a range of 8 to 55 hours and an average of 18 hours. The effects of PCP are unpredictable and variable. Depending on the amount used, the user may show signs of euphoria, relaxation, increased strength, time and space distortions, anxiety, panic, and hallucination. Other affects on the body include the fllowing : Numbness, slurred speech, and loss of coordination can be accompanied by a sense of strength and invulnerability. A blank stare, rapid and involuntary eye movements, and an exaggerated gait are among the more observable effects. Google © Copyright Expomed Inc. 2013
