Prescription Drug Withdrawal Symptoms
Not sure if you are coming down with the flu or if you are experiencing drug withdrawal symptoms from your prescription pill use? One of the signs of prescription drug abuse can actually be experiencing drug withdrawal symptoms, which is why most users avoid “missing” a dose. If you find that you are counting your pills to make sure you have enough, doctor shopping to ensure that you always have a script on hand, start to take more than medically needed (even if you believe it’s always needed), and can’t actually stop using the drug(s) without experiencing these drug withdrawal symptoms, you may be suffering from a prescription pill problem.
Drug Withdrawal Symptoms
Early withdrawal symptoms usually begin 8-12 hours after last use and include: agitation, anxiety, muscle aches, watery eyes, insomnia, runny nose, sweating, and fatigue.
Late withdrawal symptoms usually begin 48-72 hours after last use and include: abdominal cramping, diarrhea, dilated pupils, goose bumps, nausea, and vomiting.
Prescription Drug Detox
Drug withdrawal symptoms can be not only scary, but extremely uncomfortable if not medically detoxed. The good news is that there are many detox centers like The Watershed that specialize in alleviating drug withdrawal symptoms while providing a safe and comfortable environment. Detox can be just the start you, or a loved one, needs to begin their journey free from the control of prescription drug abuse. For more information, please contact us today at 1-800-861-1768.
