Common Meth Withdrawal Symptoms

Thousands of Patients Treated in AK, WA, CA, & OR

Individuals who use meth can suffer from withdrawal symptoms when they decide to stop using the drug. Similar to other addictive substances, the symptoms will vary depending on the damage caused to the person’s normal reward system. If they used meth for an extended amount of time, the withdrawal symptoms may last longer and be more severe. Furthermore, if their meth usage caused additional medical conditions, it may make the recovery process more challenging.

Common symptoms of withdrawal following meth usage include:

  • Anger, frustration, and irritability
  • Craving for meth “high” again
  • Loss of energy and difficulty sleeping
  • Anxiety, depression, and fearfulness
  • Increased appetite
  • Shaking, palpitation, and hyperventilation
  • Nausea and sweating

While these symptoms may seem intimidating, with proper medical intervention and treatment, they can be handled and eliminated efficiently. Rehabilitation should always take place under the proper supervision of trusted medical professionals to ensure a healthy transition.
