Are Sneezing and Coughing Common Symptoms of Drug Withdrawal?
Drug withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person. You should consult
a medical professional if you have concerns about your symptoms. We strongly
encourage you to
enroll in a professional detoxification facility for the best results.
Is It a Cold or Withdrawals?
That being said,
some people experience withdrawal symptoms that mimic symptoms of the common
cold, or sometimes the flu. For example, within the first few hours of your detox or withdrawal,
you may experience sneezing, nausea, and general feelings of uneasiness.
Some people argue that
opiates can suppress chronic cough (although the effect of
opiates in intractable chronic cough has never been studied), some people believe
that detoxification from drugs can bring back a cough that may have been
suppressed by the drug use.
Mental Health Daily also suggests that withdrawal symptoms will differ depending on:
- Whether a person quits cold turkey or opts for replacement therapy
- How addicted a person is
- The dosage the person was accustomed to using
- The length of time the person was using drugs
withdrawal symptoms for both alcohol and drugs, naming everything from anxiety and shakiness
