What are the side effects of meth addiction?

Professionals can only diagnose mental health disorders. An in-depth understanding of co-occurring diseases’ signs and symptoms might be complex for friends and family. However, specific symptoms of substance use disorder are easily noticeable and should be considered a warning sign. These include;

  • They are isolating themselves from friends and family.
  • Abrupt changes in their behavior, such as being more irritated, less patient, and angrier.
  • They are facing difficulties in fulfilling everyday tasks.
  • They indulge in risky behavior such as driving under the influence, changing social groups, or changing partners.
  • They no longer focus on their health or hygiene.
  • They lose control over their use of substances.
  • They have a high tolerance for substance usage.
  • They are showing signs of withdrawal.

These warning signs can be an excellent indicator for friends and family to get their loved ones to help with co-occurring disorders.

The most commonly occurring disorders along with substance use are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and personality disorders.

Some general signs of co-occurring disorders to look out for include;

  • An increase or decrease in their eating and sleeping routines.
  • They lack interest in hobbies that they once adored.
  • They have increased emotional reactivity.
  • They show fear without reason.
  • They are having difficulty concentrating or thinking.
  • They are more irritable and tend to get angry quickly.
  • They are no longer giving importance to cleanliness or health.
  • They are complaining about body pains without genuine cause.
  • They seem to have lost touch with reality and are acting paranoid. They might also be experiencing hallucinations or delusions, which they explain to you as life events.

If you ever notice your loved ones showing signs of suicidal ideation, seeming distant and lost in thought, or confused about daily matters, consider reaching out to Cornerstone Healing Center to ensure that their disorders are diagnosed and treated effectively.

What to expect from meth withdrawal symptoms?

Methamphetamine, being one of the most potent synthetic drugs, is also linked to severe withdrawal symptoms. People who are looking to quit meth experience symptoms divided into two phases.

The first phase lasts for the first 24 hours of meth withdrawal. This phase is the most intense and can cause a lot of problems. Some of the symptoms that a person might experience during the first phase include severe meth cravings, fatigue, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression, and an increased appetite, among several other symptoms.

The second phase of meth withdrawal is less intense than the first and can last for almost a month. Increased appetite, anxiety, depression, and meth cravings are some of the symptoms associated with the second phase of meth withdrawal. It’s important to always remember that these are temporary.

The duration and severity of these withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the time of use. People who have used the drug for a long time might experience more severe withdrawal symptoms for longer periods.
