Ice withdrawal can be very difficult and take a long time.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear USA,

Ice or methamphetamine, like all drugs, attacks the brain. But it's different then many other drugs because it can actually cause psychosis in those who are addicted. There is not much known about meth but many believe that the negative psychological effects of meth, make the withdrawal longer and much worse than from other drugs.

Each of is wonderfully and uniquely made, so that each of us responds differently to drugs. Some of us get addicted to meth, while others can take it and never become addicted. This is because each of our brains are different and have a unique chemical response to the drug.

The same is true of the withdrawal process, some people withdraw from meth in two weeks while others it take month than SIX MONTHS.

I would recommend that you go to a doctor and describe the withdrawal symptoms that you're experiencing. Ask the doctor to help mitigate your negative symptoms. Most doctors are very familiar with the symptoms and can help make meth withdrawal a little easier.

Good Luck,

Debbie
