Go to Detox for Dexedrine | Treat Withdrawal Symptoms

Dexedrine is a legal, prescription medication used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and narcolepsy. It is classified as a Central Nervous System Stimulant, or CNS. Dexedrine is a type of amphetamine. It can be addictive, habit-forming, and can lead to overdose and death. But it is possible to break an addiction with the help of trained, dedicated, and supportive professionals in an accredited rehabilitation center. Even though it is a legal medication, addiction sufferers can go to Dexedrine detox and treat withdrawal symptoms.

Can Dexedrine cause physical and psychological dependence?Dexedrine detox Detoxification and Rehab

Yes. If not taken properly per a doctor’s instructions, Dexedrine can cause physical and psychological dependence.

When taken correctly, drug abuse and addiction are not likely. But it is a risk when consumed at a dose higher than prescribed for medical treatment.

Amphetamine abuse is characterized by consuming higher doses of the drug to maintain a high.

When the high ends, the user will crash and experience unpleasant physical symptoms.

Depression, anxiety, fatigue, and gnawing cravings for the drug will happen. These withdrawal symptoms are the very definition of drug dependence and addiction.

How painful can the withdrawal be?

Withdrawal can be unpleasant and painful for the person in recovery. Irritability, aches and pains, depression, sleep disturbances, nightmares, and impaired social functioning are often reported with amphetamine withdrawal. In some unfortunate cases, mood disturbances related to withdrawal can last for up to a year.

How long do withdrawal symptoms last?

Withdrawal symptoms typically persist for five days to three weeks. However, mood disturbances, such as depression instigated by drug withdrawal, can last for up to a year.

What are the most severe health issues to be concerned about during dexedrine detox?

Depression resulting from the cessation of an amphetamine is of utmost concern during the detox stage. The person in recovery is at increased risk of self-harm and suicide, and this can last for up to a year after cessation.

At-home detox is not recommended because of the risk of self-harm and suicide. A lack of accountability during detox undertaken at home can also increase the user’s risk of relapse.

How can a medical dexedrine detox program help?

A medical detox program is designed to safely monitor the recovering addict. Detox and recovery undertaken at an accredited medical rehabilitation center decreases the risk of relapse and can also protect the person from the risk of self-harm and suicide.
