The effects of amphetamine last for several hours and are similar to those of cocaine. They can last from 8 to 24 hours and are still felt in the body for more than three days. They suppress the sensations of hunger and fatigue and can give the illusion of being invincible (endurance). Amphetamines also give the feeling of increased mental faculties such as concentration. The desired effects are alertness, euphoria, d├ęshinibition, stimulation of sexual desire and delayed ejaculation.
