These are descriptions of how individuals experienced various symptoms during withdrawal. While everyone's withdrawal is unique and symptoms will be different for everyone, it may be useful to know what others went through.

All withdrawal symptoms can be caused by things in addition to withdrawal. If a symptom is persistent or you are worried by it, it is always a good idea to get it checked out by your doctor to ensure nothing else is going on.


Definition: (n) the act or process of respiration


What I've Felt:

"You feel like you can't breathe. You can't draw a satisfying breath. You can't suck air all the way down into your lungs. Your breath is erratic or ragged or forced. You hear yourself hyperventilating, short, sharp inhales shrugging your shoulders upward in little jerks and gasps. You take frequent large inhales, and even that much oxygen doesn't feel sufficient.  Your breathing improves at times, for no apparent reason. " - Matt
