  5. What are the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-05-19 22:52:42
I started using cocaine to stay awake to study for my finals in college and accidentally got addicted to it. I thought I could use it a few times and not get addicted to it, but I was wrong. I want to quit but am afraid that detoxing is going to be horrible. What symptoms will I experience if I try to detox on my own?

When you detox from cocaine, you will feel nauseous, very moody, tired, and have a general achy feeling throughout your entire body. Fortunately, these feelings often only last a few days.

Cocaine withdrawal is just like being really achy and depressed, for around a month, if youve been a heavy user. Its not the same as the withdrawal symptoms of alcohol, where your body gets really sick, its definitely more in the mind. Theres a correlation between cocaine and suicide though, up to 22 percent of suicides can be attributed in some way to cocaine, so take care of your mind at this time.

The withdrawal symptoms associated with cocaine are vomiting, a slight fever, headaches, moodiness, and sometimes shakiness.

Be prepared for some heavy mood swings. Think of your usual comedown after cocaine, but it kind of goes on. Youre going to feel rotten for a while. Its not like alcohol withdrawal symptoms, which can actually kill you, but there is an increased risk of suicide, so get some counseling and have some support for getting through it.

Prepare to feel achy, down, lethargic, have crazy nightmares, feel irritable or angry for no reason, crave the drug at all hours of the day. Depending on how heavily youve been using, this could go on for over a month. You may feel a little slower or have difficulty taking information in and overall youre just not going to feel great for a bit. But it passes. If you have relapsed before, or dont think you can make it through, consider a medical-detox at a nearby center.

For about 7 10 days youre just going to feel a bit crap. Your mood will be low, your energy will be low, youll just want to eat and youll feel exhausted, but when you sleep, your dreams will be haunted. Some people use Xanax to get through it, but too much of that and youll have Xanax withdrawal symptoms to deal with, and believe me, they are worse!
