    Stimulants always increase inflammation. Stimulants increase norepinephrine signaling, the primary signal for stress. This then signals the immune system cells of the body - including the brain's microglia - to enter a pro-inflammatory state to help protect the body. The primary problem is that the increase in pro-inflammatory signaling, particularly if there already is an increase or if it is in excess of what the ...
