Methamphetamine Detox

Posted by Sun on July 20, 2011

Unlike detoxing off some other drugs there are currently no approved medications to ease the symptoms, but medical monitoring can be employed to maintain safety while a person is experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Detoxing from meth is not normally life threatening, but medical complications can occur and each individual will have a slightly different experience in the detox process. This article helps explain the concepts of heroin tolerance, withdrawal, and what it means to detox off of meth.

Many people confuse detox with treatment.  Detox should be seen only as the beginning of a longer process.  Psychotic symptoms can sometimes persist for months after use has ceased .Typically, inpatient detox lasts for five to seven days.  Treatment, which may be done on an outpatient or inpatient basis will likely last up to 90 days.

Methamphetamine Tolerance and Withdrawal

Methamphetamine has a high potential for abuse and dependence. Tolerance may develop and users may quickly become addicted and use it with increasing frequency and in increasing doses. Abrupt discontinuation of use can produce extreme fatigue, mental depression, apathy, long periods of sleep, irritability, and disorientation.

What’s it like detoxing off methamphetamine?

It’s difficult to say exactly what it will be like for each individual detoxing from meth as the experience varies widely.  Methamphetamine has a strong pull.  The binge and crash cycle that many meth addicts go through does not always lend itself easily to detox.  Detoxing off meth you are likely to: After methamphetamine use is stopped, several withdrawal symptoms can occur, including

    I am posting this for the hundreds of people who either suffer from stimulant drug addiction( mainly meth) themselves or know someone suffering from a stimulant addiction.
    As a personal victim of this ravenous disease I know how truly difficult this can be. The mood swings the outbursts of vicious attacks thru violence, words, and health, the loss of sleep, social life, friends,family, future. I have long been personally experimenting on discovering a overnight remedy to the withdraw symptoms to make quitting an achievable task for the individual if they really do want to quit but have been unable to function in everyday normal life thus preventing their successful abstinence. this plan of action has been tested numerous times and has a 85% efficiency of success. how wonderful would it be to quit one day and wake up the next full of energy, happy, and clear headed. this plan involves a diet, a physical plan, a schedule of supplements some of which were previously not available over the counter. also included in the plan are the necessary steps leading up to the day of stopping and also what must be maintained. the initial supplementation length is a minimum of 2 weeks. you can stop as soon as 3 days from starting the regimen. and be done by week two. of course you can continue the supplements if you wish but it is not necessary. the required materials are accessible to anyone i do not yet sell a kit but hope to in the future. this plan does not include any type of legal or rehab related acts. you can do it your self. why wait or spend time browsing i personally vouch for it from over 4 years of intense research and trials AND OVER 12 YEARS FIGHTING THE BATTLE.
    since i have not had the resources nor do i wish to go up against the fda all the statements above are for entertainment purposes only. this treatment guide is not intended to cure prevent or treat any disease or health condition.
