Overdosing from cocaine can kill you. A person experiencing acute cocaine toxicity experiences dangerously high blood pressure, elevated heart rate, and may have a heart attack. While cocaine can cause damage to several organs, including the brain, the lethal effects are all connected to the heart and cardiovascular system. In addition, today’s cocaine is often laced with fentanyl which is largely responsible for fatal overdoses upon first use.
