Are Amphetamines linked to violent and aggressive behavior?

Yes, and especially methamphetamines. Users have impaired restraint and judgement, and eventually psychosis. The high addictiveness of meth means addicts will do almost anything to get more.The above answer is not accurate:1) There is methamphetamine. There aren'tmethamphetamine(s).2) There is currently insufficient evidence to infer a direct causal link between methamphetamine use and violence, but there is considerable evidence that the two entitie sare related.3) The strongest evidence for a relationship between methamphetamine use and violence is in the context of methamphetamine-induced psychosis. In this context, violence is likely to be related topersecutory delusions and perceived threat. There is also experimental evidence that chronic use of the drug increases the risk of violent behaviour, and a proportion of chronic methamphetamine users reportproblems controlling violent behaviour.4) Despite this evidence, it is not clear whether violent behaviour among chronic methamphetamine users is due to methamphetamine use per se or co-occurring factors (e.g. alcohol use, psychiatric status, personality, lifestyle associated with illicit drug use).5) Acute intoxication with methamphetamine alone does not appear to lead to violent behaviour, but it may enhance aggression in someone who is otherwise provoked.In conclusion, there is currently insuffi cient empirical data to estimate whether, or to what extent, methamphetamine use has increased assaults.

Is it safe to use a amphetamine and a methamphetamine together?

Methamphetamine breaks down into amphetamine in the bloodstream, just through a much quicker process than regular amphetamine, that is why it is stronger. Using methamphetamine and amphetamine together is not safe if you don't know how much amphetamine is getting into your bloodstream from the combination of the two.
