The strength of ecstasy withdrawal symptoms is concomitant on the user’s level of dependence on the drug. Other factors include things like the amount of time a user has been taking the drug, their genetic traits, any other medical or mental conditions they may have, and how they consumed the drug.
Medical research studies show that the more dependent the user is on ecstasy, the harder and more painful the ‘come-down,’ or withdrawal from it. Tremors, teeth clenching, nausea, chills, sweating, and dysphoria can be particularly burdensome symptoms for a user to deal with on their own.
Getting help for ecstasy withdrawal pains in a medical detox facility can greatly reduce the severity of these symptoms. Staff is trained on how to recognize these symptoms, reduce their severity, and aid the user with care, support, and counseling.
If left on the street, users are at risk of self-medicating these symptoms, replacing one drug with another. Detoxing in a controlled environment greatly reduces this risk.
