No reason for that: Doctors say "No!" They also suggest that you work w/ a doctor to help you go through opiate termination. It's the safest way and you deserve all the support you can get. You're almost certainly be doing the right thing - don't select our own assistance drug.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Can I really die from alcohol withdrawal when trying to quit?

Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
Yes.: In the very severe cases, delirium tremens can cause fatal seizures, although most withdrawal fatalities occur from falls while mentally incapacitated.
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 44 years experience
Have somebody with some medical credentials and the ability to prescribe some mild medication take you through this. And congratulations on your decision to quit -- you are doing a huge favor for yourself and others.

If I try to quit, will the alcohol withdrawal symptoms kill me?

Possibly: Severe alcohol withdrawal sometimes called delerium tremens can cause death. The vast majority of people who stop drinking do not risk death however. If you have any concerns about your health when you stop drinking, consult your physician who can assist you in a plan for safely detoxifying from alcohol.

Continuing to drink is more likely to kill you than trying to quit.

How much daily caffeine creates risk of caffeine withdrawal headache?

Dr. Satinder Aggarwal
Internal Medicine 49 years experience
It depends: Some people can handle caffeine and its effects better than others. For some as little as one 8 oz can of coke per day can cause withdraw headaches. On the other hand i know of individuals who can handle several cups of coffee per day without suffering any withdraw symptoms. If you suffer from headaches it may be best to avoid any amount of caffeine.

If a person stops taking femara (letrozole) cold turkey, what are the withdrawal symptoms?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in

Few: Femara (letrozole) blocks the formation of estrogen. You will therefore start remaking this hormone. You actually will have a decrease in the effects of the Femara (letrozole) which are joint pain, hot flashes, fatigue and generalized dryness. Most of these will disappear and the increased new estrogen will make you feel better.
A 31-year-old member asked:

How long can you expect delirium due to alcohol withdrawal to last?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Lionel Lim
Geriatrics 24 years experience
Days: It depends on how much alcohol someone consumes over a long period, which causes their body to become dependent on it. Acute cessation of alcohol consumption could lead to delirium tremens, which can prove fatal. Any alcohol-dependent person coming off alcohol needs to be under medical treatment to prevent this from occurring.
