What is withdrawal syndrome

To figure it out, let us define it. Thus, withdrawal syndrome (cold turkey, cessation of a substance dependence) is a sharp physiological and mental deterioration of a drug addict in case of discontinuation of psychoactive substances. The used chemicals penetrate into the vital metabolic processes (metabolism) and, once withdrawn, the body responses to their lack as to a threatening condition, causing specific symptoms and malfunctions.

Withdrawal symptoms

Withdrawal syndrome may cause the following mental and physiological symptoms:


  • Hallucinations, anxiety;
  • Discoordination of movements, disbalance;
  • Dilated pupils;
  • Nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal disturbances;
  • Depression / overexcitation;
