Signs of Inhalant Use

Nearly all used products produce effects similar to anesthetics, which slow down the body’s function. Varying upon level of dosage, the user can experience slight stimulation, feeling of less inhibition or loss of consciousness. The user can also suffer from Sudden Sniffing Death Syndrome. The user can die the 1st, 10th or 100th time he or she uses an inhalant.

There is a common link between inhalant use and problems in school — failing grades, chronic absences and general apathy. Other signs include the following:

  • paint or stains on body or clothing
  • spots or sores around the mouth
  • red or runny eyes or nose
  • chemical breath odor
  • drunk, dazed or dizzy appearance
  • nausea, loss of appetite
  • anxiety, excitability, irritability
