Using ice with alcohol, cannabis, heroin or benzodiazepines ( 'depressants') places enormous strain on the body. In particular, using ice with depressants places extra strain on the heart which may lead to serious complications, especially among people with pre-existing heart problems.
Using ice with cannabis can increase a person's risk of experiencing mental health problems, including psychotic symptoms, especially in those who have existing mental health problems.
The stimulant effects of ice can mask the effects of depressant drugs like alcohol, heroin and benzodiazepines. This can make people feel that they are less affected by those drugs, increasing the risk of overdose.
