Abstract

Synthetic drugs are obtained by chemical elaboration, fundamentally in clandestine laboratories, with no sanitary control. Generally, they are amphetamine compounds to which usually they add some components of hallucinogenic effects. They cause clear psychic dependency. Polyconsumption with other drugs is frequent. One of the physical effects that can appear in case of acute intoxication by synthetic drugs is the hyperthermic syndrome, that in the most serious cases can lead to death.
