Withdrawal symptoms look very different for everyone and it depends on what substance you are using. I have withdrawn from medication that was addicting but prescribed to me. It was done immediately and I did not have any chance to taper off. The symptoms I experience were very similar to the side effects that I got when I first started taking the medication. This included nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and worsened mood. When it comes to other substances, one of the common withdrawal symptoms is irritability or anxiousness. I have also withdrawn from substances and whenever I wanted it, I felt very irritable and anxious because I could no longer have the substance. In conclusion, withdrawal can be physical or mental, but they are different for everyone!

Withdrawal syndrome is the set of sensations and symptoms that act as a reaction by the body to a lack of a substance. Withdrawal syndrome is a reaction to a lack of a substance in the body, with physical and mental symptoms. With characteristics that can be social, biological, psychological and moral and that can vary according to the substance in absence or consumption habits. Based on my knowledge, I will cite three different types of withdrawal symptoms. Physical withdrawal symptoms. body pain; dilated pupils; nausea and vomiting; tachycardia; sweating; tremors; diarrhea; fever; convulsion; hypertension. Behavioral symptoms. anxiety; irritability; mood swings; agitation; insomnia; lack of rationality. Psychological withdrawal symptoms The patient's psychological disturbance during the withdrawal syndrome is something that has a great impact on his mental health.
