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) Perspiration, as caused by drugs, heat, or strenuous exercise.


What I've Felt:

"You feel like you have the flu, alternating between the temperature extremes of too hot and too cold, with each end of the spectrum provoking its own sweat response throughout different parts of your body."

"I've felt like my internal thermoregulation is completely askew. I start out the days completely cold, perhaps with block-numb digits or extremities. Then my thermostat sits at neutral/normal for a while. As anxiety increases in the afternoon, I feel feverish, with face flushes, headaches and the sweats, particularly in my armpits and on my forehead. They usually break around dinnertime, and I'm cold again by midnight." - Matt
