  5. Can cocaine cause a stroke?
Asked: 2018-08-23 11:18:02
Had a stroke at the age of 25. I am now 26 and have begun to believe maybe it was caused by the use of cocaine.

Okay yes cocaine can cause an individual to have a stroke. The main route that this happens is known to be through the artery and that that supplies blood to the brain. When a person's brain loses access to its supply of blood a stroke can occur.

If you are curious about stroke and cocaine use, you should first ask what is crack, because crack is what causes you to stroke out. Its the worser form of cocaine. And is highly obtainable and addictive.

Its extremely common for cocaine users that experience heavy frontal migraines or headaches to be faced with stroke.

Cocaine use raises your blood pressure, which by itself could eventually lead to a stroke. But that it is not the only heart problem that cocaine can cause. I think its a good idea if you just dont do cocaine or crack. Just say no.

If you look Box 1 clinical manifestations of cocaine use. The first category in there is cardiac. Myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, arrhythmias, sudden death. I dont know why anyone would take drugs with a list of problems like this or any drugs now a days for that matter. They are all full of chemicals that create problems, that have serious consequences.

Cocaine is the most commonly used class A drug. The first report of a cocaine induced stroke was in 1977. Since the development of crack cocaine in the 80s there has been a significant rise in the number of case reports describing both ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke associated with cocaine use. Which is sad. I read on that users must continue snorting or smoking crack every hour and a half to maintain the high, and more is needed as their tolerance increases. This puts the user more at risk for a stroke.
