What stimulant drug causes mental illnesses?

Morning Question # 3.

ALL. Yes, any stimulant can cause a mental or emotional problem when you are under the influence. Some stimulants, like Methamphetamine, if you do enough of them, can cause permanent damage to the brain. The DSM includes five stimulant-induced disorders that can last after you are detoxed from the drug. Even Caffeine can cause intoxication and can induce anxiety or sleep disorders. The stronger the stimulant and the more you use the bigger the risk.

Sometimes a question or comment comes in or someone uses a search term that needs a short answer but not a post. Time permitting I will post answers to those questions in the early morning.
