Meth withdrawal symptoms

Meth creates serious and often deadly changes in brain chemistry and the central nervous system. These changes often occur after a very short time and can render users completely dependent on the drug. Meth Withdrawal symptoms are a clear indicator of dependency. Because it is such a potent and addictive drug, even the early stages of withdrawal can be incredibly serious. While each user’s meth withdrawal period will be different, depending upon how long and how often they’ve been abusing the drug, some of the more common symptoms include severe changes in mood, including depression and anxiety, hallucinations, panic, meth withdrawal headache, meth stomach pain, joint and muscle pain and more. Withdrawal from meth is divided into three stages: early, acute and protracted.

Stages of Meth withdrawal

Meth withdrawal is at its worst during the acute stage; however, meth withdrawal symptoms can begin in just hours after the last cycle of use. Prolonged meth withdrawal can last for months and may require ongoing care. The early stage usually lasts for about 12-24 hours and reach their peak after one to two days. One of the more dangerous and unpredictable elements of meth withdrawal is the fact that each batch is different. This is a drug that is often cooked up in makeshift and unsanitary “labs” where quality control and safety of contents is of absolutely no concern. This level of unpredictability is one of the main factors that has contributed to overdose and meth-related psychosis in Austin and throughout the entire state.
