  5. What is post acute withdrawal syndrome?
Asked: 2018-01-05 15:11:11
I’m not sure what PAWS means, my sister was taking meds for her panic attacks, and went through withdrawal when she got off them, it was like 2 weeks. But now the Dr says she has PAWS what does that mean,

PAWS is Post-Acute-Withdrawal-Syndrome. It is ongoing withdrawal symptoms and can last a while.

It’s hard to understand why your sister can’t just be fixed I understand. Try to help her with her symptoms is probably the best thing you can do for her. With PAWS it’s like a roller coster of symptoms that can last a few days at a time.
