Withdrawal?: Only patients with diabetes take insulin.

Why can ssris (and similar medications) be considered non-addictive, yet can cause major withdrawal symptoms?

Why can ssris (and similar medications) be considered non-addictive, yet can cause major withdrawal symptoms?

You're right on both: Many medications have start-up side effects that go away after you've taken them for a few days, or they may have withdrawal symptoms if you stop suddenly. Stopping Clonidine suddenly can spike your blood pressure through the roof! antidepressant medications can cause temporary symptoms when you start them and again when stopping. Slowly increasing and decreasing the dose helps a lot. ...Read more

Yeast & Blood Sugar: Sugar cravings and yeast infections are found in persons with diabetes. In diabetes the blood sugar is high because the body can not use the sugar that is in the blood. Despite not eating sugar, the body still must use up the blood sugar which requires a hormone called insulin.

How to best deal with withdrawal symptoms from pepsi?

How to best deal with withdrawal symptoms from pepsi?

Caffeine withdrawal: I recommend that people who are using excessive caffeine (whether coffee, tea or cola or other soft drinks) cut back by about 25% of the dose every 3-4 days until they get down to 1-2 servings per day, which is generally safe. If you are drinking sugared pepsi, there is also the sugar issue to deal with, so use of diet drinks temporarily may help. If 8 drinks/day, go down 2 drinks every 3-4 days. ...Read more

Do you always get withdrawal symptoms when stopping use of a drug?

No: Withdrawal from medications/drugs/substances results from stopping it after you have taken it long enough for your body to acknowledge that it is no longer receiving it. Different drug characteristics cause for a different required amount of time & different time frame when to expect onset and ending of withdrawal. Sporadic use often doesn't result in withdrawal; everyone doesn't withdraw the same. ...Read more

What is a way to address withdrawal symptoms?

Depends on the cause: Different drugs are associated with different types of withdrawal. And how dangerous the symptoms are can vary quite a bit. Withdrawal from certain sedative or hypnotic drugs (downers) can be associated with seizures. Opiate withdrawal, while terribly painful, is actually less medically serious. Alcohol withdrawal is similar to sedative withdrawal and can be associated with seizures. ...Read more

Do you know if there are withdrawal symptoms from cutting?

Cutting: Not insofar as I know. I will say that I have suggested to patients who cut that, when they begin to decrease their instances of cutting, to replace those instances with something positive.
