You should drink lots of electrolyte rich fluids like Gatorade as cocaine increases metabolism.
This can cause palpitations as well.
Although less common, sometimes fast heart beats can precipitate heart attack even at your age.
If your heart rate does not drop bellow 100 in next 15 minutes, you should go to the local hospital for further monitoring. Best wishes,Please reply back if you need any further clarification.It was my pleasure to help you today.
Yes I will suggest so --all the best
Cocaine can cause chronic damage to the heart and hence although you are young your heart may have suffered damages consistent with older age.
Definitely you will need to stop cocaine completely.
You will need to follow up with a cardiologist as well with periodic echocardiogram to assess heart problem.
Certain medications ( like ace inhibitor) can be prescribed by the cardiologist to help with the remodeling of the heart to improve functioning.
Most likely yes in next 6 months or so.
