Overamping

Overamping is the term we use to describe an “overdose” on speed or cocaine. Overamping means a lot of things. Sometimes it is physical, when our bodies don’t feel right. Other times it is psychological, like paranoia, anxiety or psychosis—or a mixture of the two. It’s complicated because sometimes one person considers something overamping, and the other person  considers it just part of the high.
