Soma Addiction Withdrawal

Most people who abuse Soma experience great difficulty when undergoing therapy since the medication has very serious effects on the system. Withdrawal is a psychological effect with psychosomatic symptoms. For an individual who is hooked on soma the natural capacity of the brain to generate chemicals which are responsible for motor coordination and information reliance are greatly impaired. The ability of both the body and the brain to perform simple operations is drastically affected.

Those who abuse the medication chronically experience both physical and emotional symptoms of withdrawal. There are some limited biological withdrawal effects, and this doesn’t mean the individual isn’t addicted but rather that the withdrawal symptoms from Soma abuse are more emotional than physical in nature. Nearly every drug produces withdrawal effects.

Abusers who abruptly stop taking this substance without proper preparation may experience serious conditions such as stroke, heart attack or seizures. Medically aided detoxification is highly recommended so that the amounts of Soma consumed can be reduced in a gradual manner under medical supervision.

Some very dangerous symptoms linked to withdrawal include delusions, epileptic seizure and even hallucination. During withdrawal the addict has to go through the acute stage which is typically the first phase on the road to recovery. This stage can generate physical withdrawal effects which may last for several weeks. Afterwards a person will go through a period commonly known as post-acute phase.

During this phase the brain begins to readjust to the absence of Soma and get back to normal. The patient should now have fewer physical withdrawal effects but may experience notable psychological and emotional side-effects. What makes this stage even more difficult to get through is that symptoms can fluctuate regularly and it therefore becomes very difficult to directly diagnose the condition and offer the most appropriate treatment.

As the recovery procedure progresses the symptoms will disappear but they could reappear again a few weeks later depending on the person’s level of tolerance.

Every post-acute symptomatic episode generally lasts for a few days; however some post-acute effects can be felt for up to two years after quitting Soma.

Unexplained Anxiety and Depression – These two conditions are generally associated with medication addiction. People who suffer from both of these conditions are generally classified as dual diagnosis victims. Someone who is trying to get out of the chains of addiction needs help and support from not only medical professionals but also from friends and family.

Other abusers exhibit symptoms of restlessness, and suffer from sleep disturbances and chronic sweating. These can be followed by hallucinations, rapid temperature changes and seizures. In severe situations there may be life threatening cases of delirium. Some withdrawal symptoms have also been known to result in acute cases of psychosis.
