Meth (methamphetamine) is extremely habit forming and it takes persistence and dedication to withdraw from meth.

Keep reading here for more information on how to withdraw from meth and avoiding meth overdose. Then, ask your questions about meth withdrawal at the end. We respond to all legitimate and earnest questions with a personal and prompt reply.

When do you withdraw from meth?

You can withdraw from meth even after one use. Withdrawal effects, however, typically occur when you stop taking meth after a period of regular or binge use.

Withdrawing from meth is typically a little easier and less stressful for individuals who have not been using the drug for very long. Therefore, it is recommended that anyone looking to withdraw from meth does so as soon as possible, before the drug starts having an impact on their health and lifestyle. However, it’s never too late or too early to withdraw from this dangerous drug, and anyone dealing with an addiction to meth should seek help whenever they can.

How long to withdraw from meth?

Meth withdrawal symptoms typically start several hours to a day after the drug was last used. These symptoms will usually peak a few days after last use and gradually begin to lessen in severity after this peak. Overall, depending on the severity of physical dependency on meth, it can take anywhere from a week to a month or more to completely withdraw from meth.

How to ease withdrawal symptoms from meth

When withdrawing from meth, individuals should get as much rest as they need. In order to avoid gaining weight, they should also eat a healthy well-balanced diet. Some people may also find that anti-depressant medications can help with the severe depression experienced during meth withdrawal. These medications must be prescribed by a doctor, though, and medical supervision may be necessary during meth withdrawal.

Can I withdraw from meth at home?

It is possible to withdraw from meth at home, but most medical professionals recommend withdrawing from meth in a medical facility. Medical supervision typically makes withdrawing from meth slightly easier and safer. Some individuals may even need to be put on suicide watch when withdrawing from meth, since severe depression is a common meth withdrawal symptom.

How to withdraw from meth safely

Although some individuals have been able to successfully withdraw from meth safely on their own, the safest way to withdraw from meth is under the supervision of medical professionals. Meth detox facilities are one option, but there are also other inpatient and outpatient drug detox and programs available as well. Withdrawing from meth under medical supervision may even save some lives, since it can reduce the risk of both suicide attempts, relapses, and overdoses.

There is no one-size-fits-all way to withdraw from meth. Some methods work for some people, while other methods work well for other people. One of the best way to withdraw from meth successfully is under medical supervision or in a drug rehabilitation or detox facility.

Drug rehabilitation and detox facilities aren’t for everyone, though. If this is the case, some individuals may want to attempt to withdraw from this drug on their own. To do this, it’s important to stay away from the drug completely to minimize the chances of a relapse. Individuals trying to withdraw from meth on their own should also surround themselves with supportive non-users and try to stay busy with activities that don’t involve using meth.

You can quit. Find a safe and quiet place. Stockpile plenty of liquids to stay hydrated. Also make sure you have food. Get sleep and relax. Have some anti anxiety meds if you can get access. If you get too paranoid call a friend you can trust. You will feel better after a few days. Good luck and God bless.

Thanks for spreading the hope and encouragement, dragonfire! We appreciate you sharing your experience about getting off meth. All the best to you!!!

Ive been using meth for over a year.. started snorting.. and smoking about 6 months in.. now injecttion seems to be my only fix tho i will do whatever. I think the biggest issue for me is what other people think.. Withdrawing sucks.. motivation zero. Im glad i have a high metabloism otherwise i would be pretty heafty. I sleep alot also.. stay awake still during the nights and sleep most the day on my 3rd day and your damn right id do it if it was infront of me. wish me luck im going to need it.

Hi. My boyfriend has used for 8 months. He is currently withdrawing, has for about a week at home. He has been experiencing lower back pain and was wondering if it had affected an organ in that area or if its just muscle aches?

How to help my son meth withdrawal symptom? My son is 28 years and living wt me. He hasn’t taken meth for 7 months. I get irritated to see him like this. Should I talk to him or scold him during the withdrawal?

8:15 am August 11th, 2014

Hi Lily. Give him multi vitamins, plenty of water since a lot of meth users suffer cronic dehydration and try to get him active and constantly doing things that preferably aren’t drug related. Taking amino acids is also helpful. Eating healthy diet, with lots of proteins, fruits, veggies and fiber is essential.

I have been prescribed Adderall for over 20 years. I just started using meth about 2 & 1/2 months ago. I don’t use every day but almost every day.. several times per day. My question is how do I stop using meth and continue with my prescribed dose ( 70mg ) of Adderall sucessfully? My does of Adderall doesn’t seem to have an effect on me anymore. I am prescribed Adderall for Narcolepsy and A.D.D. I literally can’t function without stimulants because all I do is sleep or lay around with no energy or motivation. I also suffer from severe depression and I have Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia.

I have done it before. Stayed clean for 18 years. TTragedy struck end of 2011 well fell off in vengeance I have been able to some how keep my job but that won’t last much longer if I don’t stop. They find out I lose my job. So I can’t go into coma land for 3 week. My use is probably a teen a day. My dilemma is tough a catch 22. I lose everything if I come forward at work and the field I am in will be labeled a drug addict. I make 100k plus a year. Tell me is there a way to detox and still function daily? Please help.

11:04 am December 29th, 2014

Hello Garjar. It is impossible to detox from meth (after chronic use) without experiencing any withdrawal symptoms. Meth depletes your brain from certain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, and depending on frequency, dose, mode of administration etc. the severity of the withdrawal effects can also vary. If you really want to quit meth, you have to take some time for yourself. And after the detox is done, you still need to continue with psychological therapy to keep you from relapsing again.

I am 26, undergraduate student in a private university. In my country METH known as YABA became a curse and its beyond imagination that how many people are addicted. I was a complete man few years ago, was a martial artist with a wonderful peaceful and healthy life. Friends n family everyone praised me for that life as martial arts are not familiar in our country. Everyday of my life was going nice and beautiful, exactly the way I wanted and dreamed since I was little. But one single 31st December night in a DJ party at a five star hotel changed my life, the life I built for years YABA took it all by surprise… Even Me.
That night I inhaled just one single YABA Pill and 3 years later I ended up like this – my martial arts, wonderful health, energy, daily routine, mentality all gone. Vanished. But in return YABA gave me 3 things – Made me almost chain smoker, violently angry and a night crawler. Never Ever imagined that tiny Pill will consume me this way. At first it was under control, once in a month, then twice in a month, then once in a week, then twice in a week… And now I am just one step away from everyday consumption. I am very depressed about my education now because of the poor results, wasted tons of money and yet my parents don’t know a thing. Every time I smoke pills I feel I am cheating my parents. But like a stupid now I want to get my previous life back, all of it that I created through sacrifices.
Guys this desire of a second chance brought me here. If I knew just half of your provided information I would never went to this way. I just want to say I have no words to admit that how much thankful I am to you. I have read this article but please try to understand I cannot go to any drug rehabilitations, if I go my parents will know and kill me stop providing my pocket money. I visited local doctors but everyone said the same stupid thing – “If you try it you can make it, so try it”. But not a single damn one told me how to start and where to start. I listened to them, tried 10-12 days and end of the day that leads me to METH.
Guys is it too late for me? Is there any way open to Kill the thing that almost Killed me??? My comment already became huge so before ending I just want to say if get a path from here to reborn then I will Remember You, this Help, this Day and this Moment.
Highest Respect and Love.
Hector.

4:56 pm January 16th, 2015

Hi Hector. You may not need drug rehab, but you can look into psychological therapy with a psychologist. You do need to address the cravings and learn new coping mechanisms. Also, you will want to address the psycho-emotional issues which led you to try and like the euphoria of the drug. There is some inner work to do; and it doesn’t need to be expensive. Keep seeking and the door will open to you.

Hector
9:38 pm January 16th, 2015

Thank you for your reply. But would you please tell me or do you know that psychologists can give me medicine for long time consumption and several appointments? Do they want to meet with parents and communicate with them secretly? If so it is going to be a serious trouble for me then. My parents are well educated so it will be very easy for them to figure out whats going on watching good amount of medicine, prescriptions and so on. I just want to get out of this way all alone with out letting my parents know I have gone hell. Besides I am very depressed reading in your article that Meth Withdrawal is one of the hardest way… I am very afraid that maybe I am going to be one of them who tried to quit but failed.

2:27 pm January 20th, 2015

Hi again Hector. You can search online for psychologists or support group in your area. You can start here: https://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ and when you find a psychologist you can call the phone and ask all general questions. This way you can be free to say what your problem is, what you need and see the confidentiality rules etc. without giving your name.

Me and my husband both are coming off a long term use of meth. We keep fighting and it gets physical at times. I’m wanting to fix our relationship and hey g clean and I can’t handle anything even the heat. What do I do?

10:54 am June 22nd, 2015

Hi Mandy. Good for you! You don’t need to quit alone. Get a counselor/psychologist or seek help from an outpatient clinic. Deal with the addiction first. The relationship will get better over time. Call the hotline number on this page to talk with someone about your treatment options. It will get better the longer that you stay clean. But meth cravings are hard! You don’t need to do it alone.

Hi…l have been using for about 12 months with my use of late being about 4 o 5 points a day. I have also been using heroin the last week but the slight physical wd from that have gone. I still find myself looking for that cocktail now. I have gone through detox a number of times, usually relapsing in the first 7 days of being clean. I have no family support and very few friends that don’t use. My daughter is 13 and knows all about it. We want to prepare as much as possible for tbe 4 days l am likely to be out of it.My son is nearly 5. I can be so mean to them when l am waiting to get high so my daughter thinks l should cut back and then do the out patient detox.we know what to expect now and our after detox plsn is vital.l have to do this.l am going to lose my mind if l don’t. I cry every day now…real fucked up tear s.l have been using substances since l was 14 and now I’m 37 but even morphine oxycontin were easier to get off and stay off . Alcohol was hard…really hard.This is in another league.
I need some strategies and all my friends now use meth.
What am l going to do? I think the gradual idea might work but l can’t expect my daughter to ration out my 2 points a day then one…etc…any advice please?

Good ol’ crystal meth, the best thing i wish never came into my life. A bit torn between sobriety. I know im making up excuses but IF i could live my life with out meth, what replaces it? Ill try not to ramble, ive quit once before in the past, for someone else. Nine months no problem, didnt think about it, never craved it until it came and found me. Seen psychologists, know my triggers and stressers. Basically a dumbass rhetorical question, how does one quit when they are the trigger/stresser?

Hi, I know this is more so a blog for addiction, but I don’t know where else to ask. I took some molly three or four days ago that ended up being cut with meth and haven’t felt right since, my whole body and head has been feeling weird and I have been extremely tired and nauseous and really out of it. I also have been horribly depressed as well. How long is this going to last and is there anyway to make how I’ve been feeling go away faster? I need help please. It’s really hard to manage everday life, especially working when I feel like this.

while not the best of ideas, because certain anti-depressants who’s actions effect specific neurotransmitters methamphetamine depletes(noradrenaline, serotonin, dopamine) short term use of tramadol(acute-mid phase of someone who is determined enough and motivated to truly want to stop using any kind of amphetamines might ease some discomfort) Tramadol acts as a weak opiate with properties that act on both serotonin and norepinephrine. Some tricyclics such as imipramine have been used for the acute phase of stimulant withdrawal(does not seem to help as far as long term maintenance and preventing relapse)
Other medications that help temporarily(again depending on how determined someone truly believes they want to end their dependence is bromocriptine, nuvigil(increasing arousal therefore, might help elevate mood and cognitive disorders)
While some might believe opiates could assist in dealing with the most troublesome parts of the stimulant withdrawal process such as long acting ones(suboxone, methadone), this actually could work against the healing process, and furthermore cause not problems in coping(most opiates are sedating, which during stimulant withdrawal one is extremely fatigued already therefore only causing more mental fatigue,leads to further depression. Hence, CNS depressants while useful in treating toxicity issues from methamphetamine, will NOT aid in any aspect helping ease withdrawal symptoms, especially if one needs to function during work, concentrate.

Revision-I mentioned “CNS depressants” in helping with stimulant toxicity issues. I wanted to clarify that I was referring to benzodiazepines, NOT opiates.

12:07 pm March 18th, 2016

Hi Jon. I suggest you speak with a pharmacist to recommend some over-the-counter aid, since withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person. Also, some said that hot baths helped them with body and muscle pain.

fakou
7:05 pm March 24th, 2016

it is easy to withdraw if :
1. you want to be clean. so fight with yourself and flash back your life. everything you need you have it
2. make distance from user and bad people, they are dangerous to you and your family.
3. some are or look like friend but they are not. be strong in mind and say NO
4. think that way: there is a sharp knife under your chin, if you say yes (which in american culture the head goes lower) the knife heart you, if say no (is harder because the gravity does not help you but your chin is safe) you are safe.
5. drink as much as you can just WATER and MAKE YOURSELF BUSY WITH WHATEVER YOU LIKE, JUST BUSY, WALKING WITH DOG, WORKING HARD, IT DEPENDS TO YOU ALONE OR WITH A CLOSED FRIEND FAMILY MEMBER. JUST BUSY AS YOU COULD,
THEN YOU ARE TIRED AND AUTOMATICALLY GOING TO SLEEP.

AT THE END. NEVER TRY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THE PEOPLE WHO ARE USER OF ANY DRUGS. PLEASE. YOU SEE I DO MYSELF.
I WAS USING IT FOR ALMOST 6 MONTHS. 2-4 TIMES DAILY, BUT SUDDENLY BECAUSE OF SHORTAGE, I START TO READ ABOUT IT. LONG TIME I WANTED I DID NOT KNOW WHAT IS THIS DRUG. NOW I KNOW AND NEVER EVER GOING TO USE.
IF YOU WANT TO BE HIGH THERE ARE SOME NATURAL WAY OR AT LEAST SOME NATURAL DRUGS LIKE MARIJUANA ( WHICH I DO NOT USE), I DO NOT USE ANY OF THEM.
MY POINT IS THE DAMAGED FROM METH IS SO HIGH IN COMPARE WITH OTHERS, SO THAT YOU SHOULD NOT NEVER HEAL FROM THIS STUFF.
ANYWAY WITH YOUR MONEY AND WORK THE DEALER LIVED CLEAN, HAPPY, SMILED ON THE TOP OF HILL IN A GORGEOUS MANSION DRINKING AN EXPENSIVE WINE AND LAUGHING TO ME AND YOU.
DO NOT TRY TO MAKE YOURSELF, BE HONEST NOT WORTH ED
YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY AND EVENTUAL SOMETIMES HIGH, THERE ARE SEVERAL METHODS, EVERYTHING IS IN YOUR MIND, ENJOYING FAMILY, FOOD, SPORT, MOVIE, DRIVING, CAMPING, BIKING, JOGGING, READING, WORKING.
JUST TAKE YOUR FACE IN FRONT OF MIRROR, LOOK DIRECTLY IN YOUR EYES, THAT WAY YOU COULD NOT LIE YOURSELF, AND ASK YOURSELF , WHO YOU WERE, ARE AND WANT TO BE.. NEVER SAY IS LATE

Hello, I am a 42yr old mother of 3. I am addicted to meth and want to quit it. I started using using meth very shortly after I found evidence of an affair between my husband and our nanny. I find the past few months that I don’t care about him or want to be around him. I lie to him about everything and anything and don’t even feel bad. Can you tell me if meth makes you not care? Latley I truly can’t believe some of the stuff that he says. He is a user as well but Ido use more the him. Can meth make me just not interested in anything he has to say? Help!!

Hi,
I seek urgent help of anybody willing to help someone who earnestly wishes to stay clean but falls to periodic relapses.

This might be a bit long, but please bear with me.

I am a Bangladeshi, neighbour to the Golden Triangle. Heroin user turned Yaba smoker in a stretch of around 12 years with 5 spells in rehab, no detox. Max clean time – 6 months.

There was a time I regularly did 10-12 pills, but now I’ve reduced the number to two per day.

But I want to stop…

Here’s my trouble, I recover from a binge, go through the withdrawal and then, foolish as it may sound, my mind tricks me with the challenge to overcome all the mistakes I made in my last high in another spell of sleepless week – this keeps happening in a loop.

I’m afraid I know most of the basics to avoid this – moved to a different place, rekindled interest in creative exercises (music, painting, writing, gaming, playing cricket), made friends who have no connection to drugs, worked towards helping others stay clean among other things.

Some may argue I have not lost considerably enough to have enough goodwill to stay clean. Well, my girlfriend od’ed back in 2010, my father suffered a stroke leading to his death over my outburst back in 2012, got fired from my job, unamounts of loan, death of trust of all, self esteem and all the things you know happens.

I am now a married man – happily I must add – and father of a 6-month-old. I am a copywriter for a respected newspaper that aspires me to get better.

But my obsession with pills is forcing me to stutter my way through my obligations and passion – never falling yet never at my best.

I am an ambitious dreamer but developed this sort of alter ego which takes over uninvited and leaves me with a mess to clean up, periodically. I have lost all motivation to think this through anymore. Maybe its not life-threatening, but is certainly a potential time-bomb.

Please help me with any advice and whatever insight. I have seen the worst if myself before and simply want to abort this before things get out of hand, and I know it will. Please…

Its 3am here…

My husband confessed to me his long term meth use almost a week ago. His lip was swollen with a huge sore inside. Before I met him 9 years ago, he had spent time in prison for things he did while out of his mind on meth. I’m very concerned for him. He is trying to do this cold turkey and with only my support. He is working construction and his boss is on vacation this week. He doesn’t have the energy or mental alertness to handle all this right now. What can or should I do? Please help with sound advice. Thank you

I have been using since 17…I’m 32 now but the past couple years have been none stop all day all night. I have been working really hard and gotten it to the point where I am sleeping every night, going to the gym every morning and staying clean…for about 2 days, and then I’ll smoke a bowl. I keep trying to tell myself to look at how far I’ve come and how close I am to not needing it at all, but on the “cheat” days, like today…it makes me hate myself and feel like such a failure. It’s like i don’t want to quit anymore for health, or because drugs are bad, now it’s because I feel like I have let everyone down myself included and people don’t see all the hard work and tears and loneliness that I have fought through ( I also gave up and addiction to GHB for anyone that knows of that is cold turkey and I can at least stay in that area I am still clean and it’s been over a week) they just see the times when I cave in and take a few puffs. I’m not asking a question or seeking an answer, just wanted an emotional outlet of some kind because everyone in my life is either content with addiction, or wants nothing to do with me if I tell them I’ve used. It’s a lonley battle.

I’m curious, for acute amphetamine withdrawals, many sites state anti-depressants could help for acute symptoms of withdrawals. However, most if not all(exception of tramadol which is part anti-depressant but acts mainly as a pain killer), how would any anti-depressant help when it takes at least 2-4+weeks to get any therapeutic effects. Unless Ketamine is going to be legalized, I really would like to know why anti-depressants could actually help during the first few days of wd’s??
