Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation. The concept includes withdrawal from smoking or drinking, as well as withdrawal from an administered drug.
An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)
A condition where seizures occur in association with ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) without other identifiable causes. Seizures usually occur within the first 6-48 hours after the cessation of alcohol intake, but may occur during periods of alcohol intoxication. Single generalized tonic-clonic motor seizures are the most common subtype, however, STATUS EPILEPTICUS may occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1174)
Strong dependence, both physiological and emotional, upon morphine.
A sedative and anticonvulsant often used in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal. Chlormethiazole has also been proposed as a neuroprotective agent. The mechanism of its therapeutic activity is not entirely clear, but it does potentiate GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID receptors response and it may also affect glycine receptors.

Progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, resulting from its continued administration. It should be differentiated from DRUG RESISTANCE wherein an organism, disease, or tissue fails to respond to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should also be differentiated from MAXIMUM TOLERATED DOSE and NO-OBSERVED-ADVERSE-EFFECT LEVEL.
An anticonvulsant used for several types of seizures, including myotonic or atonic seizures, photosensitive epilepsy, and absence seizures, although tolerance may develop. It is seldom effective in generalized tonic-clonic or partial seizures. The mechanism of action appears to involve the enhancement of GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID receptor responses.

Effect of alcohol abstinence on blood pressure: assessment by 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. (1/2131)

Several studies have shown that cessation of alcohol drinking reduces blood pressure (BP). However, attempts to reproduce these findings by ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) have shown inconsistent results. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of 1 month of proven abstinence from alcohol on the 24-hour BP profile in heavy alcohol drinkers. Forty-two men who were heavy drinkers (>100 g of pure ethanol per day) were consecutively admitted to a general ward for voluntary alcohol detoxification. On the day of admission, they received a total dose of 2 g/kg of ethanol diluted in orange juice in 5 divided doses, and a 24-hour ABPM was performed. A new 24-hour BP monitoring in the same environmental conditions was performed after 1 month of proven alcohol abstinence while the subjects were receiving the same amount of fluid but without the addition of alcohol. After 1 month of proven alcohol abstinence, BP and heart rate (HR) significantly decreased. The reduction was 7.2 mm Hg for 24-hour systolic BP (SBP) (95% CI, 4.5 to 9.9), 6.6 mm Hg for 24-hour diastolic BP (DBP) (95% CI, 4.2 to 9.0), and 7.9 bpm for HR (95% CI, 5.1 to 10.7). The proportion of alcoholic patients considered hypertensive on the basis of 24-hour BP criteria (daytime SBP >/=135 mm Hg or daytime DBP >/=85 mm Hg) fell from 42% during alcohol drinking to 12% after 1 month of complete abstinence. Abstinence did not modify either the long-term BP variability, assessed by SD of 24-hour BP, or its circadian profile. We conclude that abstinence in heavy alcohol drinkers significantly reduces BP assessed by 24-hour ABPM and that this reduction is clinically relevant. These results show that heavy alcohol consumption has an important effect on BP, and thus cessation of alcohol consumption must be recommended as a priority for hypertensive alcohol drinkers.  (+info)

A controlled trial of sustained-release bupropion, a nicotine patch, or both for smoking cessation. (2/2131)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Use of nicotine-replacement therapies and the antidepressant bupropion helps people stop smoking. We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled comparison of sustained-release bupropion (244 subjects), a nicotine patch (244 subjects), bupropion and a nicotine patch (245 subjects), and placebo (160 subjects) for smoking cessation. Smokers with clinical depression were excluded. Treatment consisted of nine weeks of bupropion (150 mg a day for the first three days, and then 150 mg twice daily) or placebo, as well as eight weeks of nicotine-patch therapy (21 mg per day during weeks 2 through 7, 14 mg per day during week 8, and 7 mg per day during week 9) or placebo. The target day for quitting smoking was usually day 8. RESULTS: The abstinence rates at 12 months were 15.6 percent in the placebo group, as compared with 16.4 percent in the nicotine-patch group, 30.3 percent in the bupropion group (P<0.001), and 35.5 percent in the group given bupropion and the nicotine patch (P<0.001). By week 7, subjects in the placebo group had gained an average of 2.1 kg, as compared with a gain of 1.6 kg in the nicotine-patch group, a gain of 1.7 kg in the bupropion group, and a gain of 1.1 kg in the combined-treatment group (P<0.05). Weight gain at seven weeks was significantly less in the combined-treatment group than in the bupropion group and the placebo group (P<0.05 for both comparisons). A total of 311 subjects (34.8 percent) discontinued one or both medications. Seventy-nine subjects stopped treatment because of adverse events: 6 in the placebo group (3.8 percent), 16 in the nicotine-patch group (6.6 percent), 29 in the bupropion group (11.9 percent), and 28 in the combined-treatment group (11.4 percent). The most common adverse events were insomnia and headache. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with sustained-release bupropion alone or in combination with a nicotine patch resulted in significantly higher long-term rates of smoking cessation than use of either the nicotine patch alone or placebo. Abstinence rates were higher with combination therapy than with bupropion alone, but the difference was not statistically significant.  (+info)

Presynaptic inhibition of GABA(B)-mediated synaptic potentials in the ventral tegmental area during morphine withdrawal. (3/2131)

Opioids increase the firing of dopamine cells in the ventral tegmental area by presynaptic inhibition of GABA release. This report describes an acute presynaptic inhibition of GABAB-mediated IPSPs by mu- and kappa-opioid receptors and the effects of withdrawal from chronic morphine treatment on the release of GABA at this synapse. In slices taken from morphine-treated guinea pigs after washing out the morphine (withdrawn slices), a low concentration of a mu receptor agonist increased, rather than decreased, the amplitude of the GABAB IPSP. In withdrawn slices, after blocking A1-adenosine receptors with 8-cyclopentyl-1, 3-dipropylxantine, mu-opioid receptor activation inhibited the IPSP at all concentrations and increased the maximal inhibition. In addition, during withdrawal, there was a tonic increase in adenosine tone that was further increased by forskolin or D1-dopamine receptor activation, suggesting that metabolism of cAMP was the source of adenosine. The results indicate that during acute morphine withdrawal, there was an upregulation of the basal level of an opioid-sensitive adenylyl cyclase. Inhibition of this basal activity by opioids had two effects. First, a decrease in the formation of cAMP that decreased adenosine tone. This effect predominated at low mu receptor occupancy and increased the amplitude of the IPSP. Higher agonist concentrations inhibited transmitter release by both kinase-dependent and -independent pathways. This study indicates that the consequences of the morphine-induced upregulation of the cAMP cascade on synaptic transmission are dependent on the makeup of receptors and second messenger pathways present on any given terminal.  (+info)

Rapid detoxification of heroin dependence by buprenorphine. (4/2131)

AIM: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of buprenorphine (Bup) in treatment of acute heroin withdrawal. METHODS: Bup was given sublingually daily to 60 cases of heroin addicts in 3 groups: low, medium, and high doses. Withdrawal signs and symptoms of heroin were rated by Clinical Institute Narcotic Assessment. Craving for heroin during detoxification was assessed by Visual Analogue Scale. The side effects of Bup was assessed by Treatment Emergent Symptom Scale. RESULTS: The mean daily consumption of Bup in low, medium, and high group was 2.0, 2.9, and 3.6 mg, respectively. Bup not only suppressed objective signs and withdrawal symptoms for heroin withdrawal, but also reduced the duration for heroin detoxification over 7-8 d. CONCLUSION: Bup is an effective and rapid detoxification agent with fewer side effects for treatment of acute heroin withdrawal.  (+info)

The role of gamma-hydroxybutyric acid in the treatment of alcoholism: from animal to clinical studies. (5/2131)

Since its discovery nearly 40 years ago, gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) has attracted several waves of scientific interest due to new developments in the knowledge of its mechanisms of action and ideas for its potential use in clinical practice. Its effects have been claimed to treat different psychiatric conditions, but over time its use has become limited to a few specific situations (e.g. sedating patients in non-painful surgical procedures and narcolepsy). New interest in the drug derives from its potential use in the treatment of alcoholism. Recent studies demonstrated a marked effect of the substance in suppressing ethanol (ETOH) withdrawal symptoms and in reducing craving for alcohol, compared to other available drugs. However, GHB has to be given under very careful supervision because of its side-effects, including the risk of abuse and dependence and possible interference with the metabolic pathways of endogenous GHB and ETOH. This short review discusses these and related issues and we hope that it will stimulate further interest in GHB.  (+info)

Correlation between increases in dihydropyridine binding in vivo and behavioural signs of ethanol withdrawal in mice. (6/2131)

Increased ligand binding to dihydropyridine receptors in the central nervous system after chronic ethanol consumption is thought to contribute to the withdrawal syndrome. Previous studies demonstrated such changes when the binding was measured in vitro, which, as the receptors are voltage-sensitive, may not accurately reflect the binding in vivo. In the present study, dihydropyridine binding was measured in vivo in mice, after intravenous administration of the radioligand. The aim was to determine whether there was any correlation between such binding and measurements of behavioural hyperexcitability at different times during the withdrawal phase and after two different methods of alcohol administration. Measurements were made of the binding in vivo of [3H]nitrendipine, at intervals after withdrawal from chronic ethanol administration, and of the severity of withdrawal as measured by response to gentle handling. An increase in the in vivo binding to [3H]nitrendipine was seen after cessation of chronic ethanol consumption by liquid diet. The binding was significantly increased at 4 h, when the behavioural changes were maximal, but not immediately after withdrawal, when the responses to handling were unchanged. By 24 h after cessation of the ethanol treatment, no differences in the binding were found, compared with control values; at this time the withdrawal hyperexcitability had ceased. When alcohol was given chronically by inhalation, the in vivo dihydropyridine binding was increased at 3 h from withdrawal of the ethanol, the time of maximal behavioural hyperexcitability, but no change was seen 30 min after withdrawal, when no changes in the ratings of behaviour were found. There was a significant positive correlation in individual mice between the ratings of handling-induced behaviour at the 3 h interval and the amount of in vivo binding. These data support the hypothesis that the sites labelled by [3H]nitrendipine play an important role in withdrawal hyperexcitability.  (+info)

Ethyl glucuronide--a marker of alcohol consumption and a relapse marker with clinical and forensic implications. (7/2131)

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a non-volatile, water-soluble, direct metabolite of ethanol that can be detected in body fluids and hair. We investigated urine and serum samples from three patient groups: (1) 33 in-patients in acute alcohol withdrawal; (2) 30 detoxified in-patients (treated for at least 4 weeks) from a 'motivation station'; and (3) 43 neuro-rehabilitation patients (non-alcoholics; most of them suffering from stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease etc.) using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) with deuterium-labelled EtG as the internal standard and additionally in the second group of patients using liquid chromatography (LC/MS-MS). We found no correlation between the concentration of EtG in urine at hospitalization and the blood-ethanol concentration (r = 0.17), the time frame of detection (r = 0.5) or the total amount of clomethiazole required for the treatment of withdrawal symptoms (r = 0.28). In four out of 30 in-patients from the 'motivation station'--where neither clinical impression nor routine laboratory findings gave indications of relapse--concentrations of EtG in urine ranged between 4.2 and 196.6 mg/l. EtG concentrations in urine of between 2.89 and 23.49 mg/l were found in seven out of 43 neuro-rehabilitation patients using GC/MS. The GC/MS and the LC/MS-MS results showed a correlation of 0.98 with Pearson's correlation test and 1.0 with Spearman's correlation test. We suggest that EtG is a marker of alcohol consumption that can be detected for an extended time period after the complete elimination of alcohol from the body. When used as a relapse marker with a specific time frame of detection intermediate between short- and long-term markers, EtG fills a clinically as well as forensically important gap. Its specificity and sensitivity exceed those of all other known ethanol markers.  (+info)

Necessary role for ventral tegmental area adenylate cyclase and protein kinase A in induction of behavioral sensitization to intraventral tegmental area amphetamine. (8/2131)

In the present study, we investigated the effects of selective activation or inhibition of ventral tegmental area (VTA) adenylate cyclase (AC) and protein kinase A (PKA) on long-term sensitization induced by repeated intra-VTA or peripheral amphetamine (AMPH). Selective inhibition of AC by SQ 22,536 (9-(tetrahydro-2-furanyl)-9H-purin-6-amine; 100 nmol/side bilateral into VTA) had no effect on acute basal locomotion but attenuated the locomotor stimulation induced by acute i.p. AMPH (1.5 mg/kg). Coinjection of SQ 22,536 (100 nmol/side) fully blocked the sensitization induced by repeated intra-VTA AMPH (15 nmol/side) but had no detectable effect on the sensitization induced by repeated i. p. AMPH. Persistent activation of AC by intra-VTA cholera toxin (500 ng/side) modestly increased acute locomotion and induced a robust sensitization to i.p. AMPH challenge 10 days after the last of three repeated VTA microinjections. Selective inhibition of PKA by Rp-adenosine-3',5'-cyclic monophosphothioate triethylamine (Rp-cAMPS; 25 nmol/side) had no effect on acute basal or AMPH-stimulated locomotion. Coinjection of Rp-cAMPS (25 nmol/side) fully blocked the sensitization induced by repeated intra-VTA AMPH but had no effect on sensitization induced by repeated i.p. AMPH. Intra-VTA microinjection of the selective PKA activator Sp-adenosine-3',5'-cyclic monophosphothioate triethylamine (Sp-cAMPS; 25-100 nmol/side) dose-dependently stimulated acute locomotion and exerted synergistic effects on locomotor activity when coinfused into the VTA with AMPH but had no detectable effect on acute i.p. AMPH-induced locomotion. Repeated intra-VTA Sp-cAMPS did not induce sensitization to AMPH challenge but potentiated the sensitization induced by repeated i.p. AMPH. These results suggest that VTA cAMP signal transduction is necessary for the induction of persistent sensitization to intra-VTA amphetamine and that peripheral and intra-VTA AMPH may not induce behavioral sensitization by identical mechanisms.  (+info)

Alcohol withdrawal can cause anxiety on its own. When a person drinks often, their minds and bodies start to depend on alcohol. Chemicals in the body have adapted to alcohols presence. If they go without alcohol for too long - often about 2 to 4 days, but the exact time frame varies - their bodies start to experience withdrawal - a series of symptoms that come from your body trying to adapt to the absence of alcohol. Alcohol withdrawal can lead to many different symptoms, some of which are very physical, such as nausea, headache, changes in heart rate, and more. One such symptom is anxiety - and your anxiety can be worsened due to the presence of these physical symptoms. There are actually several reasons that alcohol withdrawal can lead to extreme anxiety symptoms. Causes include:. ...
The Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment for Alcohol (often called CIWA or CIWA-Ar (an updated version)), is a scale used to measure alcohol withdrawal symptoms.[1] The scale lists ten common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. Based on how bad a persons symptoms are, each of these is assigned a number. All ten numbers are added up to make one final score. The highest possible score is 67. Higher scores are a sign of more severe alcohol withdrawal: ...
With no form of additional treatment and assuming the alcoholic quits drinking entirely-quite a feat when not seeking professional treatment, by the way-the typical alcohol withdrawal symptoms duration can last anywhere from six months to two years. The worst of the physical alcohol dependence withdrawal symptoms occur in the first two weeks and the alcoholic may experience them immediately after they stop drinking or after a couple of days. The more emotional side effects, such as depression, anxiety and mood swings, start taking over after two weeks and last anywhere from six months to two years.. The more an alcoholic drank on an average day and the longer they struggled with alcohol addiction, the worse each alcohol withdrawal symptom is likely to be. An addicts health history can also impact the severity of symptoms, as can previous failed attempts to quit. ...
Objective(s) Opioid abuse is still remained a major mental health problem, a criminal legal issue and may cause ischemic brain changes including stroke and brain edema. In the present study, we investigated whether spontaneously withdrawal syndrome might affect stroke outcomes. Materials and Methods Addiction was induced by progressive incremental doses of morphine over 7 days. Behavioral signs of withdrawal were observed 24, 48 and 72 hr after morphine deprivation and total withdrawal score was determined. Cerebral ischemia was induced 18-22 hr after the last morphine injection by placing a natural clot into the middle cerebral artery (MCA). Neurological deficits were evaluated at 2, 24 and 48 hr after ischemia induction, and infarct size and brain edema were determined at 48 hr after stroke. Results Morphine withdrawal animals showed a significant increase in total withdrawal score and decrease of weight gain during the 72 hr after the last morphine injection. Compared to the addicted and control
In addition to classic somatic signs of opiate withdrawal, a number of behavioral measures are known to be sensitive, reliable indices of naloxone-precipitated opiate withdrawal in rats. It has been suggested that some behavioral indices of withdrawal may be more sensitive to precipitation by naloxone than some somatic signs of withdrawal. The purpose of the present study was to permit a quantitative assessment of the relative sensitivity to naloxone of a variety of behavioral and somatic indices of opiate withdrawal. Male Wistar rats were implanted s.c. with either two morphine (each 75 mg of base) or two placebo pellets. No sooner than 3 days after implantation, naloxone dose-response functions were determined with several behavioral paradigms and ratings of a variety of somatic withdrawal signs. In dependent rats, very low (0.004 or 0.01 mg/kg) doses of naloxone produced the following behavioral effects: 1) a reduction in spontaneous locomotor activity, 2) a disruption of schedule-controlled ...
Unfortunately, the number of individuals who are dependent on psychostimulants and are likely to experience a withdrawal syndrome following cessation or reduction in use is not yet able to be estimated, although the presence of a withdrawal syndrome is not necessary for a person to meet criteria for dependence (which includes psychological factors). Similarly, the roles that tolerance (neuroadaptation) and acute toxicity play in long-term withdrawal are also unclear (Davidson et al., 2001). Having said this, the incidence, severity, course and subjective experience of the withdrawal syndrome are likely to be influenced by: ...

There is no question that there are many reasons why alcohol is one of the most damaging additions that a person can have. There are too many cases and tragic events that have unfolded all over the world because of the irresponsible consumption of alcohol. In this article, we are going to be talking about the many withdrawal symptoms that a person can experience and the best way to deal with them.. Unlike other withdrawal symptoms, alcohol withdrawal can be very difficult to handle for those who have a high level of addiction to alcohol. Most people can be given the right kind of guidance to handle the withdrawal and successfully cleaning their system, but some people have a harder time than others accomplishing this.. Some people can be so addicted to alcohol that they can begin to experience withdrawal symptoms after just a few hours of their last drink. Most people will experience the most notable symptoms for around 48 to 72 hours and then the process will progressively become easier as they ...

Aim: To determine whether testosterone is involved in morphine withdrawal syndrome (WS). Methods: In order to induce dependency, rats were treated with subcutaneous injection of morphine (days 1-2, 5 mg/kg; days 3-5, 7.5 mg/kg; days 6-8, 10 mg/kg), and after the last dose of morphine (day 8) WS was induced by intraperitoneal injection of naloxone (1 mg/kg). Wet dog shake (WDS), abdomen writhing (AW), and jumps (J) were recorded as indicators of WS. Results: The severity of WDS, AW, and J in male rats was greater than that in females. Accordingly, in 4-week castrated and flutamide-treated (10 mg/kg/day for 8 days, i.p.) male rats, WDS, AW, and J were significantly decreased compared to male control rats. Testosterone replacement therapy (10 mg/kg/day for 8 days, i.m.) in 4-week castrated rats restored the severity of WDS, AW, and J behaviors to the level of non-castrated male rats, whereas testosterone potentiated the WDS behavior in non-castrated male rats. Conclusion: It can be concluded that ...

AIM: To evaluate the psychometric properties of the Dutch version of the 16-item Subjective Opiate Withdrawal Scale (SOWS). The SOWS measures withdrawal symptoms at the time of assessment.. METHODS: The Dutch SOWS was repeatedly administered to a sample of 272 opioid-dependent inpatients of four addiction treatment centers during rapid detoxification with or without general anesthesia. Examination of the psychometric properties of the SOWS included exploratory factor analysis, internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and criterion validity.. RESULTS: Exploratory factor analysis of the SOWS revealed a general pattern of four factors with three items not always clustered in the same factors at different points of measurement. After excluding these items from factor analysis four factors were identified during detoxification (temperature dysregulation, tractus locomotorius, tractus gastro-intestinalis and facial disinhibition). The 13-item SOWS shows high internal consistency and test-retest ...

What withdrawal Entails. So what does the actual withdrawal entail? What are opiate withdrawal symptoms?.

My favorite part of this course, although I found it all to be relatively interesting, was when we learned about addictions and addictive behaviors in chapter four. Drug dependence or addiction is characterized by cravings, tolerance, and a withdrawal syndromes. Cravings are overpowering and almost uncontrolable urges for the drug a person uses, in order to obtain the euphoric effects or to reduce withdrawal effects. Tolerance occurs when a person habituates to the effects of the drug while withdrawals are the drug-opposite effect that results from drug-use abstinence. I found it interesting to learn about the different types of addictions people have, how they handle and maintain their addiction, and the withdrawal process. Almost everyone world wide has at least one addiction that controls their life in some shape or form, whether it be hard drugs such as amphetamines, opiates or cocaine, or whether it be something that we believe to be harmless such caffeine. Caffeine is the most widely ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Despite the neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS) epidemic in the United States, evidence is limited for pharmacologic management when first-line opioid medications fail to control symptoms. The objective with this study was to evaluate outcomes of infants receiving secondary therapy with phenobarbital compared with clonidine, in combination with morphine, for the treatment of NOWS.. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of infants with NOWS from 30 hospitals. The primary outcome measures were the length of hospital stay, duration of opioid treatment, and peak morphine dose. Outcomes were compared by group by using analysis of variance and multivariable linear regression controlling for relevant confounders.. RESULTS: Of 563 infants with NOWS treated with morphine, 32% (n = 180) also received a secondary medication. Seventy-two received phenobarbital and 108 received clonidine. After adjustment for covariates, length of hospital stay was 10 days ...

by Damian McNamara · Miami Bureau. AMELIA ISLAND, FLA. - Protracted withdrawal from alcohol, hypnotics, psychostimulants, and other agents is a real syndrome with real treatment implications, Dr. David Cohn reported in a presentation at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry. Its a very challenging and complex field, said Dr. Cohn, director of substance abuse services at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley, Calif. I got interested in protracted withdrawal because I had patients who didnt get better. He likened protracted withdrawal syndrome to the TV show The X-Files: people know its out there, but it is not in the books. You wont find protracted withdrawal syndrome in the DSM-IV because psychiatrists are stuck on [the] nomenclature, he said.. Diagnosis and treatment are challenging because protracted withdrawal can mimic other psychiatric disorders. The exact incidence of protracted withdrawal syndrome is unknown, but researchers say it affects ...

Introduction: Upper Airway Stimulation is a promising treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients. The primary aim of this randomized controlled trial was to determine the therapy withdrawal effect on polysomnographic (PSG) and quality of life (QOL) outcome measures.. Methods: The STAR trial enrolled participants with moderate to severe OSA. Participants with BMI , 32 and without complete concentric collapse at the retropalatal airway received an implanted neurostimulator. After the 12 month follow-up, the withdrawal effect was assessed by randomizing consecutive therapy responders to one week of therapy suspension vs. maintenance followed by a PSG, and QOL measures including Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) and Functional Outcomes of Sleep Questionnaire (FOSQ). Results: In the therapy ON (Tx ON) maintenance group, all outcome measures remained unchanged at one week. In the therapy OFF (Tx OFF) withdrawal group, all outcome measures returned towards baseline levels after one week ...

The results from the present study demonstrate that withdrawal from elevated levels of circulating steroids using a pseudopregnancy paradigm result in a withdrawal syndrome characterized by increased anxiety and cross-tolerance to the benzodiazepines. A previous study from this laboratory (Smith et al., 1998) demonstrated that progesterone withdrawal also results in increased seizure susceptibility. These withdrawal effects were shown to be attributable to abrupt decreases in circulating levels of the GABAA-modulatory steroid 3α,5α-THP and were closely correlated with subsequent increases in CNS levels of the α4 subunit of the GABAA receptor. As such, this neuroactive steroid withdrawal syndrome is strikingly similar to withdrawal properties of other GABAA-modulatory agents, such as the BDZs, barbiturates, and ethanol (File, 1981; Finley and Nolan, 1989; Kokka et al., 1993).. The fact that both ovariectomy and administration of the 5α-reductase blocker MK-906 were effective in achieving ...

Zolpidem has potential for either medical misuse when the drug is continued long term without or against medical advice, or for recreational use when the drug is taken to achieve a high.[53][54] The transition from medical use of zolpidem to high-dose addiction or drug dependence can occur with use, but some believe it may be more likely when used without a doctors recommendation to continue using it, when physiological drug tolerance leads to higher doses than the usual 5 mg or 10 mg, when consumed through inhalation or injection, or when taken for purposes other than as a sleep aid.[53] Recreational use is more prevalent in those having been dependent on other drugs in the past, but tolerance and drug dependence can still sometimes occur in those without a history of drug dependence. Chronic users of high doses are more likely to develop physical dependence on the drug, which may cause severe withdrawal symptoms, including seizures, if abrupt withdrawal from zolpidem occurs.[55] Other ...

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a set of symptoms that can occur following a reduction in alcohol use after a period of excessive use. Symptoms typically include anxiety, shakiness, sweating, vomiting, fast heart rate, and a mild fever. More severe symptoms may include seizures, seeing or hearing things that others do not, and delirium tremens (DTs). Symptoms typically begin around six hours following the last drink, are worst at 24 to 72 hours, and improve by seven days. Alcohol withdrawal may occur in those who are alcohol dependent. This may occur following a planned or unplanned decrease in alcohol intake. The underlying mechanism involves a decreased responsiveness of GABA receptors in the brain. The withdrawal process is typically followed using the Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment of Alcohol Scale, revised (CIWA-Ar). The typical treatment of alcohol withdrawal is with benzodiazepines such as chlordiazepoxide or diazepam. Often the amounts given are based on a persons symptoms. ...

RATIONALE: After alcohol ingestion, the brain partly switches from consumption of glucose to consumption of the alcohol metabolite acetate. In heavy drinkers, the switch persists after abrupt abstinence, leading to the hypothesis that the resting brain may be starved when acetate levels suddenly drop during abstinence, despite normal blood glucose, contributing to withdrawal symptoms. We hypothesized that ketone bodies, like acetate, could act as alternative fuels in the brain and alleviate withdrawal symptoms.. OBJECTIVES: We previously reported that a ketogenic diet during alcohol exposure reduced acute withdrawal symptoms in rats. Here, our goals were to test whether (1) we could reproduce our findings, in mice and with longer alcohol exposure; (2) ketone bodies alone are sufficient to reduce withdrawal symptoms (clarifying mechanism); (3) introduction of ketogenic diets at abstinence (a clinically more practical implementation) would also be effective.. METHODS: Male C57BL/6NTac mice had ...
Aims: Alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) is characterized by a set of physiological modifications triggered by abrupt withdrawal and/or decreasing consumption of ethanol (EtOH), which May manifest 16-48 h after ceasing consumption. the relationship between the effects of AWS and central and peripheral sympathetic neurotransmission is unknown. This study investigates the possible mechanisms on the sympathetic system during periods of AWS.Main methods: Male Wistar rats were treated with EtOH (6-10 g/kg/day/v.o. 5 days). Subsequently, 1 h, 24 h, 48 h and 120 h after administration of the last dose of EtOH, the animals were sacrificed, and their vas deferens (VD) were removed to perform the following evaluations: (a) concentration-effect curves of sympathetic agonist; (b) activity of alpha(2)-adrenoreceptor; (c) function of voltage-dependent calcium channels (Cav); and (d) release of endogenous catecholamines measured in real time coupled to HPLC.Key findings: the results showed that the maximum ...

Natural News) There is good news for people on a diet who want to cut down on their consumption of caffeine. A recent Australian study suggested that caffeine withdrawals can be overcome by the power of the mind.. Researchers from the University of Sydney conducted an experiment involving 48 people who consumed large amounts of caffeine. Each participant drank at least 270 milligrams of caffeine each day, the equivalent of three cups of coffee.. The Australian investigators wished to determine if caffeine withdrawal is real or imaginary. They told each participant about the dose reductions and measured how that affected the persons own opinion on the severity of his withdrawal.. The researchers assigned the participants into two groups at random. Both groups went through the same caffeine reduction plan for five days.. During the first day, the participants received one cup of coffee in the morning and a second cup during the afternoon. Their caffeine intake totaled 300 mg.. They continued to ...

We recently showed that multicomponent traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapy had steroid-sparing effects in moderate-to-severe eczema. We sought to evaluate TCM effects in severe eczema in a 7-year-old male with refractory disease and corticosteroid withdrawal syndrome. Prior to referral, the patient had been treated since infancy with increasingly intensive standard of care, including high-dose topical and systemic corticosteroid and antibiotic therapy and was unable to tolerate further steroid treatment. The patient was administered a combination of oral and topical TCM for 17 months following discontinuation of his steroid regimen. His overall medical condition was assessed by SCORAD criteria and laboratory evaluations of serum IgE, absolute eosinophil count, and liver and kidney function tests. The patient showed rapid improvement of clinical measures of disease after starting TCM therapy, with marked improvement of sleep quality within the first week, complete resolution of itching, oozing,

TY - JOUR. T1 - Thermal sensitivity as a measure of spontaneous morphine withdrawal in mice. AU - Balter,Rebecca E.. AU - Dykstra,Linda A.. PY - 2013/5/1. Y1 - 2013/5/1. N2 - Introduction: Opioid withdrawal syndrome is a critical component of opioid abuse and consists of a wide array of symptoms including increases in pain sensitivity (hyperalgesia). A reliable preclinical model of hyperalgesia during opioid withdrawal is needed to evaluate possible interventions to alleviate withdrawal. The following study describes a method for assessing increases in thermal sensitivity on the hotplate in a mouse model of spontaneous morphine withdrawal. Methods: C57BL/6J mice received 5.5. days of 30, 56, or 100. mg/kg morphine or saline (s.c., twice daily). In Experiment I, thermal sensitivity data were collected at baseline and at 8, 24, 32, 48. h and 1. week following the final injection. Thermal sensitivity was assessed by examining latency to respond on a hotplate across a range of temperatures (50, 52, ...

While there has been a lack of consistency in the results from different studies on cocaine withdrawal, generally, symptoms of cocaine withdrawal include: Anxiety Erratic sleep Irritability Depression Sadness Cravings for cocaine Poor concentration Lethargy These may occur anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks after the suspension of cocaine use. The symptoms can be managed by most people while at home and do not require hospitalization for detox.
The major findings of our study are: 1) that a nicotine withdrawal syndrome with both somatic and affective signs can be observed in the mouse whether by cessation of nicotine chronic exposure (spontaneous) or by acute challenge with various nicotinic antagonists (precipitated); 2) that nicotine withdrawal signs seem to be mediated by multiple neuronal nicotinic subtypes; and 3) that genotypic factors, withdrawal history, and dose and duration of nicotine exposure influence the development of nicotine withdrawal and its severity.. The observed nicotine abstinence in the mouse displayed a variety of withdrawal signs that were dose-dependent and attenuated by a single dose of nicotinic agonists including nicotine and metanicotine, a nicotinic agonist with preferential affinity to neuronal nicotinic receptors (Bencherif et al., 1996). Furthermore, it was precipitated by a single dose of mecamylamine, a noncompetitive nicotinic antagonist. These results show clearly that our mouse model meets ...
AS WITH ANY BENZODIAZEPINE, MEDICAL DETOX IS NECESSARY FOR THOSE WITHDRAWING FROM CLONAZEPAM.. Medical detox ensures that trained professionals are on hand to monitor progress 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and medical detox will often utilize medications to help control the more difficult withdrawal symptoms. Since it may be dangerous to stop taking clonazepam cold turkey due to the range of withdrawal symptoms, detox will often include a tapering schedule. This is a way to slowly lower the dosage over a safe period of time, which can minimize potential physical and emotional side effects. The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology reports that major withdrawal symptoms can be largely avoided with a gradual weaning, or tapering, of clonazepam. Medical detox will usually last about 5-7 days until the peak of withdrawal symptoms has passed, and the drug is fully removed from the body.. There is no specific medication currently approved to treat benzodiazepine dependence directly; however, there ...

A recent clinical breakthrough in the treatment of opiate addiction has been the development of Buprenorphine for the treatment of opiate withdrawal symptoms. Buprenorphine is a synthetic medication that has both opiate and anti-opiate properties. When administered to the patient undergoing opiate withdrawal symptoms, it rapidly reduces and often eliminates those symptoms within an hour. Previously, withdrawal meant 3 - 6 days of severe muscle aching and spasm, profuse sweating, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. With Buprenorphine these symptoms are essentially avoided, while the patient is gradually tapered on decreasing doses of the medication over a period of one to several weeks (depending on such variables as the duration and intensity of the patients previous dependency, physical health, and degree of motivation ...

Withdrawal reactions are an important and well-recognised side effect of Seroxat and also occur with the other SSRIs. The MCA/CSM warned prescribers about the possibility of withdrawal reactions associated with Seroxat via an article in the Bulletin, XCurrent Problems in Pharmacovigilance in 1993. The CSM re-reviewed the issue of withdrawal reactions and possible dependence with Seroxat and the other SSRIs in 1998 99. From a detailed review of all available data, 5 Nov 2002 : Column 272W. the CSM concluded that all SSRIs may be associated with withdrawal reactions on stopping, but that on current evidence, they are not associated with dependence. As a result of this review, product information for all SSRIs was updated in relation to withdrawal reactions. This issue was also reviewed at a European level by the Committee on Proprietary Medicinal Products (CPMP), which reached similar conclusions. ...

In the advanced stages a person may suffer from diarrhea, increased heart rate and high blood pressure, muscle weakness and pain and insomnia to name a few of the symptoms.. Causes Of The Oxycodone Withdrawal. These withdrawals are painful and troublesome. It is very difficult for a person to lessen his or her dependence on Oxycodone once he or she gets addicted to it.
