Among the serious neurologic and medical complications are coma, trauma, infection, seizures, stroke, altered mentation, peripheral neuropathies, myelopathies, Parkinsonism, visual disturbances, dyskinesias, cerebellar ataxia, impotence, and fetal effects. The less alarming sequelae are myriad (fatigue, loss of appetite, headaches, dizziness, etc.). Dr. Brust has written the most comprehensive source available to the point of being encyclpedic, including references. But, as one reviewer points outt, The book is not tedious reading... It is in fact well organized and readable, with his own brand of erudition. Almost entertaining, Dr Brusts style does delight, as in: Bizzare even by the often rococo standards of substance abuse is toad licking.
